The Texas Barn is a non-smoking environment.

The Barn is fully stocked with old fashioned games - Cards, Dominoes, Risk, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, etc.

About The Owner: I am a retired educator and airline employee. My husband and I enjoy traveling, but we also love our home in San Antonio. Gardening and keeping the grounds lovely is a favorite pastime. We especially love to entertain, and enjoy the evenings around the patio area. We cook out often and enjoy al fresco dining and a glass of wine or a margarita by the pool. We love to get to know our guests. There is always an open invitation. We have two golden retrievers and several cats who will want to be petted and loved.

For a relaxing getaway, this is the place to come! You are right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of San Antonio, and yet once you enter this property, you feel like you are in the country! Please see virtual tour under Amenities!

Property was just as advertised. Quiet, beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Barn-house during our golf vacation. We found everything in working order and well stocked. Rhonda and Paul were very helpful hosts. It was easy to navigate in the area. Restaurants are plentiful. Very comfortable king bed in master. Shower in one bathroom/tub in main bath. Buddy, the golden retriever, was our guardian. What a sweet dog!

Thank you Rhonda and Paul.

The Barn Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (all adults) stayed here for 4 nights while house hunting in San Antonio. It was the perfect central location to get around the city. The barn provided a clean, quiet, and relaxing resting place. Paul, the owner was very friendly and accommodating.

The Pros: Central location, Two living areas-one upstairs and one downstairs, Clean, Large bedrooms, Extremely well stocked kitchen, Great outdoor areas

The Cons: The main living area is on the second floor so all luggage, etc. must be taken up the stairs. This was not a problem for us, but it could be for others.

We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

The Barn, San Antonio Texas

  • 5 of 5

So glad that we chose to stay here. The barn is a home away from home. Comfortable, tasteful and totally charming. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. They are welcoming and very kind. Would definitely stay again.

Great Family Alternative

  • 5 of 5

We stayed recently in November. Beautiful property and a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. This is a great family alternative to a hotel; lots of room on the property to explore and for kids to play. Minutes from Fiesta Texas and downtown San Antonio. Would highly recommend this jewell to anyone. All the reviews are positive for a reason; it's all true.

San Antonio Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a place to stay near the river, but I didn't see anything I liked, or it was too expensive. We were traveling with some friends from Norway and wanted to stay at a place that looked like Texas. Rhonda and Paul were fabulous hosts, and the barn-house was an oasis after the brouhaha of the river area. The weather was warm, and the pool was great for a relaxing afternoon. Cooked out that night, and Rhonda and Paul let us use their table by their house to eat dinner. Such a great time!

Beautiful way to enjoy a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

"Miss" Rhonda and "Mr." Paul

I must that ya'll have beautiful home. We truly enjoyed our stay. This was our first trip to San Antonio but not our last. Traveling with two boys ages 12 and 7 - this was the perfect way to enjoy your beautiful city. Your hospitality was much appreciated.

The boys loved Buddy and Molly. My youngest could not wait to get and see them.

Again, thank you for a wonderful stay. In our opinion, it was a 5 star hotel.
