Alexandra's House
Ranked #2 of 6 San Marcos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 August 2013

My wife and I stayed while in town to celebrate our son's graduation from Texas State University. This B&B is beautiful! Rosemary is a wonderful host. Her scones are out of this world delicious. Comfortable rooms with access to the wrap-around porch. Definitely will return and will recommend to our friends and family.

My mom and I wanted a few days to go somewhere not so far from home, yet a place that would feel like we are far from stress and crazies of everyday life. Well, what an incredible blessing to have found Alexandra's House!! Ms. Rosemary made our stay so special, from the peaceful surroundings of the rooms, to the beautiful outdoors with the sound of the creek/pond, to the amazing breakfasts she served us with joy...it was all so perfect!!
I already have spoken to friends to make future plans, and will continue to share with friends and family about this amazing B&B. I recommend this place to all, but as a teacher I would like to encourage all the teachers out there to book you a few getaways to this place! True Therapy!! :)

We just came back from our trip to Wimberley and San Marcos. We stayed in 3 different places, and Alexandra's House was by far the best. Everything about it was exemplary. Rosemary and Reed are gracious and inviting hosts, who've thought of everything. The house looks old, but it's new. We stayed in the Diana and found it to be charming and comfortable. The adjoining bathroom and large closet were part of an alcove, which could be made private with the sliding pocket door. The grounds were beautiful. The breakfast on the open-air porch was fabulous! Stay here! You won't be disappointed. It's close to Wimberley and the San Marcos outlet mall, but it's set back from the road and incredibly peaceful. Two thumbs up!

Beautiful home, beautiful property tucked in just off the highway in an excellent location for Wimberley and San Marcos. My wife and I had a great time there visiting with the other guests and with Adam over breakfast, which was incredible! We will definitely be going back for another weekend trip. Thank you!!

The accommodation was great,
The breakfast, and hostess, first-rate.
Fresh baking to begin,
And sweet treats
When you come in
At the end of the day.
A wonderful place to rest your head
In a comfortable bed.
Make this "house"
Excellent in every way.

We have stayed at 3 different bed and breakfast places near Texas State, but none compare to Alexandra's House. Located about 10 minutes from the campus, it has become my new home away from home. Whether I am visiting our son with my husband, or bringing my son's girlfriend to visit - it is amazing. The rooms each have privacy, are quiet, and have their own bathroom. It is hard to pick where I like to sit the most - by the amazing barn or on rockers outside the rooms. The breakfast is to die for! I'm also partial to Rosemary's French toast :) We have stayed here several times and are looking forward to our visits in the Spring.

This is our first time visiting San Marcos, we were there for our friends wedding.
The moment we walk in its feels we are home...its great! and was welcome with such a wonderful hospitality by Rosemary. She is a great cook and will make you a delicious breakfast! My husband can get enough of her French toast with mascarpone cheese and lemon syrup...
We will certainly always remember San Marcos and definitely Alexandra's house.
Its first class all the way and we Highly Recommend this place to stay.
