Craftsman Haus - Menger Cottages - San Antonio LodgingThis charming 100-year-old home built by my great-grandparents in San Antonio features a wide front porch for lounging in the cool breezes, sipping lemonade and enjoying conversation. Step through the 100-year-old door into the living room with original hardwood floors and working fireplace. Curl up in a chair next to the fireplace for a cozy hour of reading. Or lounge on the leather sofa to watch TV. Further in the house, the gracious dining room has a table for four. You’ll fall in love with the built-in china cabinet and the floor-to-ceiling windows that let in natural light.

Alamo Heights home

We stayed in Linda’s Craftsman home in Alamo Heights. It was near many resources and activities. There was plenty of room for our family and Linda allowed me to bring my dogs. The backyard was beautiful and large. I look forward to staying there again in the spring or summer. Thank You Linda, it was a Great Place to spend time with my family!!!


This quaint Craftsman home is wonderful, comfortable and fun. We spent Thanksgiving and cooked and laughed , walked in the lovely neighborhood. The owners came by to help with a problem lock and could not have been more accommodating. My dogs loved the back yard. I will return.

Exceeds expectations!

The pictures truly do not do this property justice! My husband and I, our son and his girlfriend and dogs spent a fabulous long weekend in this home on a first time visit to San Antonio. We were so impressed with how quickly and easily we were able to get to everything from the Alamo and Riverwalk to the Japanese Gardens and museum district to the refurbished Pearl area. But mostly we just wandered the gorgeous neighborhood or relaxed on the front porch or watched the dogs play in the huge back yard. We have been doing vacation rentals for years and this was the first one that had us all sitting around in the evening saying, “I could live here!” The owner was a joy to work with and left all kinds of helpful info and directions. Highly recommend!!

Amazing location; great historic house

The house is in an amazing location of San Antonio in a beautiful tree-lined street historic area. The beds were very comfortable and my dogs enjoyed the large backyard.

A Local’s Vacation

Great house! Beautiful. Loved historical family pics. Great location. Owner was very accommodating to our schedule. House stayed cool during hot summer month. Comfortable. Kitchen was well organized. Family room was well sized and dining area light and airy. Our personal favorites were sitting on the wide front porch during breezy evenings, our child scootering with a friend to local ice cream shop and our pet found many a cool spot to nap. Large back yard and ample parking behind gate was useful for loading and unloading packages. We are locals but felt like on vacation. We walked to pizza restaurant and Starbucks. Nice neighborhood with charming homes of various styles, quiet and tree lined to walk. Nearby restaurants, a top level grocery were convenient. Thank you Linda for sharing your home!
