Property Description

The Pingenot and Kennedy Hus come together in this European-style farmhouse, surrounded by the shops and food of Castroville, with plenty of parks and attractions within an hour's drive.

Pamper yourself! This comfortable bed and breakfast in Castroville is the very definition of luxury, special amenities, and mind-clearing comfort. The inn was built in 1847 in this village founded by French immigrants, in the style of an Old World European farmhouse. It has since been faithfully restored to retain its charming look, with numerous modern conveniences added. Though it's only a half hour's travel from San Antonio, the Inn on Petersburg will transport you to a quieter time-all with the shops, cuisine, and events of Castroville literally right outside your door.

The roomy patio (with outdoor furniture provided) is shaded for comfort, and well-lighted for use even after dark. Want to liven things up a little? For your enjoyment, there are even indoor and outdoor games provided!

Don't let the austerity and economy of design on the outside fool you; the interior of this inn is absolutely amazing! The beautiful stone and hardwood floors, barn-beam ceilings, and enormous custom-tiled shower stalls all represent the class and quality that was kept in mind from the day the building was erected. The decor of both the Pingenot and Kennedy Hus is white and airy, letting in lots of natural light, with accents and furnishings fitting the French farmhouse theme. Inside, it's just as beautiful as the surrounding Hill Country; they complement each other perfectly!
