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.
