The Old Kasper House, built in 1906, was the model home of local building contractor, alderman, and cotton ginner John F. Kasper and his wife, Mary. It was an elegant home where old-world traditions were practiced and preserved from 1898 to 1960, including bee-keeping, wine-making, and woodworking. In 1986, Mary Ann and Hubert Novak began converting this lovely Victorian-style home into the Old Kasper House Bed & Breakfast.
After lots of loving hard work, we now have several different homes and cottages from which to choose. Each place has bedrooms, private baths, and living and dining areas with unique character and personality.
The Old Kasper House Bed & Breakfast is the perfect destination for visitors to Shiner and weary travelers alike. It's just the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city ... only 80 miles from Austin and just over 100 miles from San Antonio or Houston ... we're 20 miles south of IH-10.
Once you arrive in Shiner, the Old Kasper House Bed & Breakfast is located just 2 blocks off Highway 90A ... just a stone's throw from downtown Shiner and the Spoetzl Brewery.
The elegant antique furnishings of the main Victorian House are rich with the history of the early 1900's. The house is filled with period furniture, photographs, and just the right decorating touch. Mary always took pride in her interior decorating touch, as well as the warm hospitality many thought no longer existed. You'll feel right at home, yet more than home when you stay with us!
Upon arrival, a basket of breakfast items will be found in each room. A copy of the newspaper and all the latest local news is ready at hand. If you need advice on local shopping, dining, or attractions, our helpful staff is ready to assist you.
