San Antonio bed and breakfast.

A Unique San Antonio Texas Bed and Breakfast

In the Heart of San Antonio's Historic District

Ruckman Haus is a lovely San Antonio, Texas bed and breakfast located in San Antonio's historic Alta Vista District. Your hosts and innkeepers, Prudence and Ron Ruckman, would love to welcome you to San Antonio, a city rich with the history of Texas and Old Mexico, and to their charming, centrally-located inn.

Ruckman Haus Bed and Breakfast is in a home dating from the turn of the century that retains all of the arts and crafts architecture and design of that era. You'll find it an excellent example of the comfort that city dwellers brought to what was then the frontier, and from a time when prominent citizens built houses that were both homes and showplaces.

But don't think you'll be roughing it. The house was always well kept up but, even so, underwent an extensive renovation from 2000-2001. During that renovation, which converted it from the home of a prominent doctor into the B&B it is today, all of the modern conveniences were updated or improved or added - and this includes high-speed Internet access throughout the house.

Both Prudence and Ron have paid a great deal of attention to the installation of modern room conveniences, including flat-screen televisions, DVD Players, private phones and the remote controlled individual A/C and heating systems. They have also made sure that guests will find a comfortable environment outside their rooms. Some rooms have private balconies or decks, and there is a deck on the west side of the house for all guests.

You will enjoy all the comforts that each of the guest rooms at Ruckman Haus has to offer, but at Ruckman Haus, the times you spend elsewhere will be just as enjoyable.

On the east side of the house, Prudence and Ron have created a garden and waterfall that are truly remarkable, and Prudence has overseen the planting of flowers, shrubs and trees to enhance the relaxing experience.

Ron Ruckman, your host and chef, is pleased to offer a varied breakfast menu with his signature dishes, which include Eggs Benedict, Huevos Ruckmananza (original recipe), strawberry parfait, triple sec oranges, and waffles with fresh fruit. Guests may eat in the large dining room at the antique refectory table, or they may have their breakfast in the garden by the waterfall. Because of the extensive plantings, this area is always shady and inviting.

Link to On a second stay with us here at Ruckman Haus, Sharon Arnoldi, a professional photographer from Highlands Ranch, Colorado (south of Denver) brought her cameras and used our home as the subject for many wonderful photographs. We were very enamored of them and when we asked, she very graciously granted us permission to use some of them on this site. We are very grateful to her for enhancing these pages, and you should definitely visit her own Web site and look at the amazing work she does. Just click on her logo at left, or visit
