About the property

Private historic cottage with gated parking and a private backyard


This cozy family-friendly private home includes gated parking. Start your morning with coffee on the front porch or enjoy a relaxing evening in the backyard garden. The Alamo is only a short walk! Other downtown area attractions in close proximity include the San Antonio Riverwalk, Tobin Center, The Majestic, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Sunset Station, and the Alamodome.


Known as the Engelmann-Muench House, this cottage was built in 1858 by Martin Engelmann, a wealthy German immigrant. The caliche block vernacular double house sits on a site which was once part of the Alamo farmlands. The structure is a good example of a once-common San Antonio house type and features original built-in end chimneys.

Awesome location and cute historic house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 really loved our stay at Stonehaus. Mona is a very attentive hostess and gave great suggestions. The location is within walking distance to the Alamo, Riverwalk, and The Pearl. We had a great 4th of July in San Antonio.

Perfect location for discovering the history of San Antonio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stone Haus a couple of weeks ago. It was our first visit ever to San Antonio and we looked for a place that would have a "homey" feel for a visit with our son and granddaughter and be in a location that allowed us the freedom to not have to drive to visit the historic sites of San Antonio. This home checked all of those boxes. It was a super hot weekend and the home stayed cool and comfortable and the lovely shaded courtyard in back was the perfect spot for morning coffee and afternoon relaxing. The house is beautiful inside and we didn't want for anything that it didn't offer. The location is a little funky since it is right downtown and the town has basically grown around this historic home and the other one next to it. But, with the privacy of the back yard, that didn't affect our stay in any way. We would definitely stay here again.

Best location

We stayed here last week and loved it! Close to all the stuff happening in downtown: easily walk to Alamo, riverwalk, shops, restaurants, mall, etc. The home is cozy and clean. We loved it!

Quaint and spacious.

I loved staying here! The location was so close to different areas of San Antonio. Even a small walk to the river walk. I highly recommend you stay here.

Truly Beautiful Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

First off I would like to Thank Mona for such a beautiful home. My husband was a little timid that the older kids (early 20's) would not find the appeal in a historic home, but he admitted right away how wrong he was. This location provided more than enough room for the five of us. The girls had there own room with plenty of space and a wonderful lighted mirror. The location is very convenient to the downtown main attractions which makes it easy to come and go through out the day. I truly appreciate the welcome book Mona provided which details sights, restaurants and Molina's corner Market (true life saver). My only regret is not staying longer.

Great experience Cozy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while having a show at the Convention Center. This place was close to everything we wanted to do. Short walk down to the Riverwalk and if we wanted to the walk to the convention center was good too! Your home was set up perfect! Was nice to have a place to relax in instead of sitting on a bed in a hotel room. We were able to come home cozy up in the living room, watch a little tv then tour the town in the evening. Thanks for making our stay. We will be back again!

StoneHaus is a remodeled historic house built in 1858. It was part of the Alamo farmlands. The house is located within walking distance (4 blocks) to the Alamo and the Riverwalk. A front porch and a landscaped, shaded backyard provides a relaxing place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. Free gated parking is a plus.
