This was the idea that started it all, the dream of converting a small town Texas firehouse into a Bed and Breakfast accommodation for historic Floresville, Texas. It wasn't easy, but we had a good sturdy structure to work with and enough room to create the environment we were after. The result, we think, is somewhat unique, especially to South Texas. Each of our three suites, The Lieutenant's Quarters, The Fire Marshal, and the Fire Chief, has its own distinct personality making them "fan favorites" to different people for different reasons.

Come check them out and pick your own favorite, plus see how Belinda has built that little extra La Estrellita touch into each of our suites. No matter which room you choose, you will experience a luxurious Bed and Breakfast environment, with fully-appointed private baths, the comfort of relaxing in the drawing room in front of the fireplace, plus a full gourmet breakfast each morning of your stay. A stay at the B & B also provides you with full access to all the Firehouse B & Bistro has to offer: gourmet coffee creations each day through early afternoon, and the charm of the Bistro and patio deck on warm, pleasant evenings. Come see us, you won't be sorry.
We gave it equal name billing with the bed and breakfast for a good reason. When the renovation began, it wasn't clear how this room would turn out. But, Belinda and our builder worked some magic, and voila! Polished, acidized cement floors set off wrought iron tables, colorful lighting, our Firehouse theme wall mural and Floresville's best selection of wines, imported beers and tasty snacks. The result is a cozy, yet cheerful environment that's hard to describe until you're there and see it. This is co-owner Joe Harrison's favorite room, and the perfect place for an evening of relaxation, both inside and out (on the adjacent patio deck). Come by for a drink and see if you agree with Joe.
Wow! This room stunned us the first time we saw it. Fifteen hundred square feet, lit by day through 8 of the large windows that this building has throughout, plus original hardwood floors, now newly refinished and gleaming. We also added crystal chandeliers and a refrigerated wet bar. The rest is up to you and your event planning imagination.
The Ballroom is perfect for private parties, receptions, group meetings, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and some other events we haven't even thought of, but you will. This is truly an elegant atmosphere for any special occasion.
Ask us about our newest bed and breakfast location, Ogden Cottage, situated in the heart of San Antonio.
