In our years of extensive travel there have been places we have stayed and places we have loved. For us, the difference is that in addition to cleanliness and comfort the latter have offered something extra. This can be charming vintage décor or local artistic flavor. It is our love of these unique places that led us to become the innkeepers at King William Manor. Vintage aesthetic and bohemian artistic allure are present throughout the Manor and its surrounding neighborhood, the historic King William District.
In the 18th century the land in our area was farmland used for feeding the inhabitants of The Mission San Antonio de Valero, or The Alamo. In the 19th century the neighborhood was founded by wealthy German immigrants. The mostly German inhabitants of the area built magnificent mansions that today are the crown jewel of the first historic district in the state of Texas. The Main house of the Manor was built in 1892 and the Guest House was built 9 years later in 1901. Throughout its years the Manor has been a private residence, a community theater, apartments, a bookstore, and finally became a Bed & Breakfast in the 1990’s.
Lovingly restored to its original splendor, the 1892 Greek Revival Mansion and 1901 Guest House are perched on an acre of spacious gardens that offers guests a rare retreat in the heart of San Antonio. King William Manor offers the perfect blend of tranquility, service and comfortable accommodations, adorned with works of art by local artists and filled with vintage charm. Wake up to organic coffee and a nourishing breakfast, explore the day away, then relax on the veranda and take a dip in our pool.
