The History of The Inn on the Riverwalk

Our Victorian home was originally constructed in 1916 as a doctor's office and has since undergone a multitude of changes from an exquisite private residence to a multi-family apartment community in the 1970's and 1980's. Finally in 1990 a full renovation was completed and our beautiful Victoria made it's debut as Inn on the Riverwalk Bed & Breakfast and welcomed its first guests. room 11

Johanna bought The Inn on the Riverwalk in May 2007 and has made the Inn their labor of love.  Continuously renovating, upgrading, expanding and incorporating modern details that ensure a comfortable and welcoming stay for any San Antonio traveler.

Innkeeper / Owner

Johanna Gardner, purchased the Inn on May 15th, 2007. The Inn since has made a favorable impression with guests from all over the world.

Johanna, puts her creative brain muscles to work as she is the advertising/marketing director for the Inn. She is a non-denominational minister and performs most of the wedding ceremonies at the Inn. Johanna also creates a lot of the wedding flowers for brides and grooms.

Johanna has also decorated the majority of rooms with her abstract artwork. She studied fine arts at Cornish College of the Arts in tjohanna's arthe fine art department for over 5 years where she started painting encaustic style. After melting the wax either directly and/or dripping it onto the canvas, she navigates her way through colors of the rainbow finishing only when she intuitively feels it's done. Johanna also enjoys adding her creative flair throughout the Inn by inviting other local artists to show their work. In each room, you'll enjoy realistic to abstract works from a variety of artists. The artwork is available to take home as a great gift to yourself or others.
