About the property

Cozy downtown historic cottage home | 8 minute walk to the Alamo | Sleeps 6


This cozy family-friendly private home is an 8 minute walk to the Alamo! 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.

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!

Little Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Never in a million years would you believe you were in the middle of a busy metropolis. Not only is Stonehaus warm and inviting, the garden is an oasis. After a busy day of "touring" we would come back and relax in the garden. A little piece of Heaven. I would also recommend Stonehaus for anyone who wants to just get away and relax.

Beautiful and well designed house. Great location, close to everything however it is nearby a local international bus stop which brings by a lot of transients to the area. It is fully fenced in and gated so the property itself feels very safe and secure.

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.
