River Road Ranch - Minna's Haus

Although it is the newest addition to the bed and breakfast units at the River Road Ranch, Minna's Haus was built in 1876 and is the original homestead on the property settled by German immigrants. Lovingly restored by the Smiths, Minna's Haus is a cozy two story rock house filled with history. Admiral Chester Nimitz's aunt babysat for him in this house when he was two years old. The house contains many antiques and period pieces yet also provides all the conveniences of modern day living. Peace and quiet, access to the Pedernales River, and life on a ranch filled with free-roaming animals await you. Let Minna's be your home away from home!
