We are now ArtisInn Guest House!

In order to better tell the world what our little slice of heaven is like, we’ve renamed ourselves “ArtisInn Guest House” – or “Art is Inn” for short – and changed our place from a Bed and Breakfast to a hotel-like venue or vacation rental!  We feel we can accommodate guests better this way. When you’re here, the “ArtisINN” is Everything!!  It’s in the creatively decorated and cozy rooms, and it’s in the outdoor environs with our soul-soothing greenery and little nooks to sit and chat or just look at the lake.

Note: To make a reservation or see more about us go to the VRBO website.

Look for the Mailbox!!

New name new sign in progress

Our latest artwork creation is a miniature house that’s decided to be a mailbox. And it awaits our treasured guests by the side of the road!  Google maps will steer you wrong, folks (or at least way out of your way).  Make sure to check out our homegrown directions on our “Locations & Direction” page to get you here right.  And of course we’d love to see you at any time of the year, whether in the hot hot summer when ma nature gives way to temperate evenings, perfect for sitting and sipping and looking out at the lake, or in the delightful spring summer or fall times of the year.

Call 210.316.6203 to make a reservation or for more information.  As always, we’d love for you to come join us!  – Jim and Sherry

We’re on the South Side of Canyon Lake, which is great for boating, water skiing, and sailing.  We’re close to all the best tubing on the Lower Guadalupe River, just a few miles from the start of River Road.  We’re also convenient to San Antonio, New Braunfels, and Gruene, Texas for antiquing and shopping.  Please check out our page here for many links to area attractions!

Hmm… any corn left?

Art, Relaxation, Peace!

We’ve created a bejeweled and intimate little nest for the lover of the unusual and those who want something more than the ordinary.  We’re perfect for couples but lovingly accept children and offer a great time for “Getaway” Girls’ Weekends.

Our Rooms

You have a choice of two bedrooms, The Nest Room and The Oasis Room. Each is originally designed to embrace and envelop you in a sense of wonder, and to erase the outside world.  (Although, in case you’re not quite allowed to leave the outside world behind, we do offer free WiFi). There are also a fully appointed kitchen with eating space, and outside deck andpatios.

The Oasis Room

The Oasis Room

I’m Sherry and an artist by trade, and each room was an opportunity to create a beautiful and creative respite from a world dominated by conformity, order, gray flannel, and cubicle walls.  Even if you don’t work in corporate America, I hope you find yourself rejuvenated by a stay at Art Is Inn.

The Nest Room

The Nest Room

We take special pride in our garden and outdoor environs, so that the deck with the lake view, the garden and yard, and back deck are as inviting and calming as the rooms.

We would love to welcome you here.  To learn more about us call Sherry at 210.316.6203.

We have been inspected and approved by the Texas Bed and Breakfast Association.
