Joske House Bed and Breakfast
San Antonio, Texas
he Joske House is a grand nineteenth-century home built by San Antonio mercantilist Alexander Joske. He obviously intended that his wife should keep house in high style as he provided her with the latest in conveniences and beauty. The latest renovation, completed in 1990 removed none of the original parquet floors, chandeliers, paneling or stained glass but added many modern comforts such as air-conditioning.
The location that Mr. Joske chose, the corner of Beauregard and King William, is very convenient for touring San Antonio today. You can leave the house, stroll around the venerable historic district, out into Southtown where galleries and popular restaurants abound or sample the ample amenities of all of downtown San Antonio. All are within a short walk.
