The Main House at Crystal River Inn — a classic boutique hotel in San Marcos, TX, — sleeps a total of 15 guests, in five designer rooms. Each elegant guest room at The Main House has its own canopy bed, fireplace and luxurious bathtub, just five blocks from the San Marcos River.

Nestled in the gateway to the magical Texas Hill Country, this historic bed and breakfast (continuously operated since 1984) has a beautiful garden full of roses, tall trees and bubbling fountains. Wake up to a home-cooked meal and take a peaceful stroll around our grounds!

Breakfast at The Main House is a sit-down affair with old-fashioned favorites such as bananas foster crepes, quiche with hollandaise, and eggs benedict served regularly. Our stately accommodations have been featured in Country Inns, Southern Living and USA Today!

Sleeping accommodations: The Frio Room has a king bed (max 3 guests); The Nueces Room has a queen (max 2 guests); The Medina Room has a king (max 3 guests); The Colorado Room has a queen (max 3 guests); and The Blanco Suite has a king and a double (max 4 guests).

Unique Features

The Main House is one of two lovely vacation homes located on resort grounds at Crystal River Inn. Combining The Main House with four additional guest rooms at The Thomas House, the Inn can accommodate a total of 26 guests in quaint style and luxurious comfort.

Each of these rooms can also be rented on an individual basis for couple’s getaways or other small groups! Every room has its own full bath, a flat-screen TV, and complimentary wireless internet. See our website for all of our events and special occasion packages and rates.

Things To Do

We invite you to relax, enjoy a lazy long weekend and do nothing around The Main House, or bring all your loved ones to share in a stunning garden wedding on resort grounds. Sleep in late, call for breakfast in bed, meet friends for lunch, take a walk in the gardens — and in the evening, share margaritas over a game of bocce ball by our backyard bar under the trees.

This old-fashioned country-style inn is perfect for a small destination wedding, a family reunion, or one of our fabulous murder mystery weekends. We also host regular whitewater river trips, gourmet cooking events, wine tastings, carriage rides, and spa days — not to mention our annual New Year’s Eve Mystery Gala and other seasonal specials.

The Inn is close to downtown San Marcos, where you can find seasonal festivals, excellent dining, and a wonderful outlet mall. Not to mention, we’re right next to the sparkling San Marcos River — perfect for all kinds of year-round water sports such as canoeing, rafting and tubing. Other unique activities include horseback riding and candlelight cave tours.
