Arbor House – San Antonio Gay Friendly Bed & Breakfast

Author: , December 12th, 2018

Arbor House

Arbor House Inn and Suites was opened in October 1995, but the history of the buildings which now comprise the unique 8 suite bed and breakfast, began in 1903, when a Swiss cabinet maker built these cottage homes for himself and his family.

During recent renovations the houses were awarded the San Antonio Conservation Society Plaque, awarded for excellence in historic renovations.

The 4 buildings are clustered around a lush garden with beautiful fountain, outdoor seating & umbrella tables, in downtown San Antonio. Arbor House is centrally located one block from historic La Villita, and the River Walk, and two blocks from the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center. Other attractions such as the Alamo are 3 blocks away.

Arbor House Inn and Suites was opened in October 1995, but the history of the buildings which now comprise the unique 8 suite bed and breakfast, began in 1903, when a Swiss cabinet maker built these cottage homes for himself and his family.

The 4 buildings are clustered around a lush garden with beautiful fountain, outdoor seating & umbrella tables, in downtown San Antonio. Arbor House is centrally located one block from historic La Villita, and the River Walk, and two blocks from the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center. Other attractions such as the Alamo are 3 blocks away.

Guest Suites have been individually decorated with furnishings and art work collected from a myriad of sources – functional, interesting and fun. You will never stay in any hotel as unique, intimate or convenient. Each house has only three suites, featuring high ceilings, pine floors, private baths, and all the conveniences of central air and heat, state of the art phone system with data ports. All of the suites have refrigerators, microwaves and coffee pots. Some suites have private balconies.

“We provide visitors a relaxed atmoshpere, a center-of-the-city location, and San Antonio charm at a reasonable price.”

A new tradition in downtown San Antonio.

Arbor House Inn and Suites was featured in the March ’04 edition of Southern Living Magazine.

San Antonio - Google Maps

from Google Maps

If you’ve been tasked with visiting San Antonio on business, don’t feel disappointed – after all, you’ll fly into some of the country’s warmest weather, but you’ll also be showing up prior to the dog days of summer. In a nutshell, it’s the perfect time to visit. In an effort to get you outside the boardroom and into the River City, we’re offering up two restaurants, two attractions, and one bar that you can hit with just a few extra hours between meetings.

EAT: If you’re looking for that special locale to close the deal, look no further than Fig Tree Restaurant. It’s just down the street from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, and while it’s mighty expensive, the atmosphere, view, and waitstaff help to justify the lofty prices. The food here is exceptional, and the staff will go to just about any length to ensure that your party has a stellar time.

Being that you’re in Texas (and relatively close to Mexico), you’d be remiss of your travel duties if you left San Antone without indulging in some of the local fare. Casa Rio is right on the riverfront, offering up a brilliant collection of Tex-Mex dishes with a view. Surprisingly, the prices are fairly reasonable considering the location. If you’re worried about tossing and turning all night from ingesting too much heat for dinner, just drop by for lunch.
