What a beautiful home we found nestled in the bush near San Marcos and Wimberly. Ideal to relax and unwind in a natural bushland setting if you are wanting to take a few days break and be pampered. Our hostess provided spotlessly clean, beautifully spacious rooms looking out into natural bushland which can be enjoyed also from the wide verandas... More

I was looking for a getaway weekend, with lots of R&R, and this was just the place. Very peaceful and comfortable, if you just want to catch up on some reading or enjoying the fresh country air. Or perfect to pop into nearby Wimberley, or San Marcos.... or visit the scenic area wineries. Do as much as you want, or... More

We loved the house and the feel of it. It turns out that Rosemary was on vacation, but Adam did a great job filling in as host and cook for breakfast. We stayed two nights, and the breakfast was different each day. Great food and company. Lots of attention was given to the grounds, which includes a running brook and... More

2 Course Breakfast is a treat! Owners made an excellent suggestion for dinner. Conversation in the living room prior to dinner was a welcome delight. They are located near glass blowing place and between San Marcos and Wimberley. We highly recommend it.

Rosemary is a most warm and welcoming host. She also serves an excellent gourmet breakfast. I visited with two of my friends. From the moment we arrived to the moment we hugged goodbye, I felt I was visiting a good friend. Her home is beautiful and comfortable. Rosemary designed the home and the three bedrooms are well situated. Each has... More

My daughter goes to TSU and I decided to try this B&B in lieu of the usual hotel closer to TSU. It was a wonderful experience staying at Rosemary's (owner) house. First off it's beautifully decorated with antiques and wonderful paintings. This new country farmhouse is gorgeous; and filled with warmth and charm. Rosemary's home cooked breakfast is even better!... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alexandra's House is a beautifully furnished upscale Bed & Breakfast located just off RR12 and 10 minutes from either Wimberley or San Marcos in the Texas Hill Country. Located on 5 acres of Live Oaks and wildflowers, Alexandra's House offers a two-course breakfast, wonderful linens, private baths, hair dryers, TVs, DVDs, wireless internet, a wraparound porch and a screened porch for relaxing. Amenities include fresh flowers, good coffee, teas and homemade snacks. Custom built in 2008, and combining traditional farmhouse architecture with a modern open floor plan, the inn provides just the right mix of the old and the new . . . Cozy ambience with modern amenities. The interior features wood floors, numerous windows, and a wide, central "dog-trot" hallway/corridor lighted with hand-crafted blown glass sconces from their neighbor Wimberley Glass Works. The kitchen is open to guests and is centered by a butcher block countertop. Outside the back door is a running stream with ponds, falls and lichen-covered rocks that provides a tranquil spot for guests to relax with the sounds of babbling water. As you sit quietly on the porch while listening to the wind chimes, you may see grey fox, deer, wild turkey, road runners and other critters that roam the land. ... more   less
