Inn on Petersburg - Pingenot Hus


Property Description

** Please inquire about availability prior to booking**

The day-to-day grind of city living can take its toll after a while-and you owe it to yourself to enjoy a relaxing and pampered getaway! With that in mind, you should check out some of the best bed and breakfast accommodations available in colorful Castroville: the Pingenot Hus! Not only will you have the history, cuisine, and shopping of Castroville at your front door, but the Frio River, Garner State Park, and Paradise Canyon are all within an hour or so from this premium location.

The gracious Old-World European charm of this beautifully restored 1847 house makes it the setting for one of the best romantic getaways in Texas! Treat yourself and your special someone like royalty, with luxurious touches such as signature toiletries, high-quality linens, and complimentary teas and coffees-all topped off by a fresh, home-cooked breakfast for a modest fee. Even though it's only half an hour from San Antonio, you'll think you're in a whole different world!

The Pingenot Hus has the look of an authentic French farmhouse, which fits nicely with the historic theme of Castroville's downtown surrounding it. Out back is a roomy, shaded, and well-lit patio for socializing, and there are also indoor and outdoor games provided for you to enjoy. The patio is shared with the Kennedy Hus right next door; the adjoining rental is also available-so let us know if you'd like to reserve both (each can sleep up to four; renting both would double the number of guests to eight). Ample parking is available here, as well.

Luxury, economy, and beauty grace the interior of this gorgeous home, highlighted by stone and hardwood floors. The bedroom features a queen-sized bed, and there are two additional twin beds, providing comfortable sleeping arrangements for up to four. A huge, custom-tiled shower adorns the full bathroom, and high-quality bed and bath linens are provided-you can even purchase your own set! The unit includes a microwave, mini fridge, and a dining area, and for your added comfort and entertainment, there's central air and heating, a smart TV with Netflix, and Wifi.

Let us show you what makes the Pingenot Hus the heart of one of our best Castroville vacation packages! This quiet, shaded property is the perfect place to unwind for a weekend. One call to us at Backroads Reservations, and you'll be on the road to this wonderful bed and breakfast.

Nestled alongside the Guadalupe River halfway between Kerrville and Hunt lies the town of Ingram. This community of about 1,800 people is almost a combo of several towns in its vicinity, in that it’s taken advantage of local resources and has capitalized on them to make it a prime example of a Hill Country town. You’ll find farming and ranching in Ingram, wineries that take advantage of the unique local terroir, attractions linked to recreation on the river, and even a model of Stonehenge!

25 May


Just east of Hunt in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, you’ll find a marker erected in 2005 that discusses the history of the town and its vicinity. Hunt itself is located 13 miles west of Kerrville, at the junction of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe River. As the historical marker states, the town of Hunt is the ultimate result of three different communities that were founded in more or less the same place!

16 May


The Hill Country town of Kendalia is near the Guadalupe River, about halfway between Blanco and Boerne as the crow flies. It’s one of the smaller towns in the region; its population has hovered around 100 the past several decades, and when you count the ranchers and rural dwellers in its ZIP code that number increases to about 350. Nonetheless, Kendalia has a fascinating history all its own.

What guests are saying...

This property was exactly as pictured. Rustic and charming, absolutely perfect for a girls' weekend or romantic getaway. I would definitely visit again. The city is very walkable. You can get to several cute cafes and lunch eateries from this location.
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!
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!
