Inn on Petersburg - Kennedy Hus


Property Description

** Please inquire about availability prior to booking**

Are you seeking an escape from the city that isn't a budget buster? The Kennedy Hus is one of the best vacation rentals near Castroville, half an hour from the hustle of San Antonio. Pamper yourself with the quality amenities in this charming little farmhouse-style rental, with natural diversions like Garner State Park, Paradise Canyon, and the Frio River all within an hour's drive. You'll have the shopping and cuisine of Castroville at your doorstep, in a relaxing and peaceful setting.

Built in 1847 and graciously restored, the Kennedy Hus now serves as a comfortable bed and breakfast in Castroville. While close to San Antonio, its location is removed enough to assure a calming and luxurious place in which you can unwind. This beautifully-appointed guest house comes with complimentary teas and coffees, signature toiletries, and high-quality linens you can even purchase and take home! The beauty of the Hill Country and the quaint charm of a small French village come together in this Old World house.

For a small fee, you can start every morning with a farm-style breakfast made from fresh ingredients. Ample parking is provided here, and there's a shaded and lit patio out back for socializing and relaxing. Both indoor and outdoor games are on hand for you, as well! The spacious patio is shared with the adjoining Pingenot Hus-and, if you need room for more of your folks, both properties can be rented as one, doubling your sleeping space from four to eight people. Just let us know if you'd like this option when you book.

Stone and hardwood floors, along with barn-beam ceilings, give the Kennedy Hus an authentic farmhouse feel. One King, and two twin-sized beds, give feather-soft sleeping accommodations for up to four people. The full kitchen features a refrigerator, microwave, stove and oven and dining area seating, along with free coffees, teas, and bottled water. The bathroom includes a large, stone-tiled shower, and all downy-soft bed and bath linens are included. This guest house is also furnished with a smart TV with Netflix, Wifi, and central air and heating for year-round comfort.

The Kennedy Hus sets the stage perfectly for your romantic holiday in the Texas Hill Country. Stroll the historic streets of Castroville, enjoy the natural parks and attractions in the area, or just decompress in this wonderful rental. Call Backroads Reservations to book today.

The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!

What guests are saying...

This cute little house was the perfect weekend getaway. The beds were super comfortable and the rooms were spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked with all utensils we needed to cook meals & any minor convenience was more than made up for during our stay.

Wow, what an amazing experience it was while our stay at the Inn On Petersburg! All we wanted was a nice getaway from the city for my boyfriend’s birthday weekend, to step out of the ordinary, especially during this stressful pandemic everyone is currently facing. I must say we couldn’t have chosen a better spot to spend the weekend! Our stay was truly amazing, and definitely exceeded our expectations! From the uniquely antique ambience and decor, to the special touches of bringing home cooked breakfast every morning! Seriously, thank you so much! I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to disconnect from every day life. God bless you and your family!
Our stay here was wonderful! The house is so unique and cozy, beautifully decorated. The photos don’t do it justice. Weekend breakfast was delicious, the host delivered it to our kitchen table every morning, along with fresh fruit and fresh orange juice left in the fridge. There’s also a coffee shop called Magnolia Filling Station walking distance and they have delicious coffee. Lots of little shops and antique stores in the area, very historic and enjoyable. I definitely recommend!
Our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we couldn’t ask for better accommodations! We loved all the decor of the home and the history behind the property. Really enjoyed the delicious breakfast brought to us every morning! You definitely won’t be disappointed if you stay here!
