This historic Inn was purchased and renovated in 1984 by Mike and Cathy Dillon. Today it has received many accolades, including being one of the fews inns in Texas to receive a three-star rating from the prestigious Mobil Travel Guide. It has also been named to Fodor's Best Bed and Breakfasts in the U.S. and recognized by the Texas Monthly Press as "one of the most outstanding inns in Texas."

The Inn has been decorated comfortably, with no special emphasis on antiques, but simply "with furniture we like," as the Dillons say. The designer guest rooms, each named for a Texas river, have graced many home and garden magazines, as well as publications including Country Inns, Southern Living, and USA Today. Lodging accommodations feature such amenities as fireplaces, canopied beds, fresh flowers, clawfoot bathtubs, televisions, and telephones, as well as special decor such as twelve-foot ceilings, unique fabric-upholstered walls, and Native American rugs. A fully furnished, two-bedroom executive apartment is also available for long-term rentals. It sleeps four and includes a kitchen, washer/dryer, and other necessities.

Each morning a spectacular gourmet breakfast is served, featuring such specialties as Eggs Benedict, Raspberry French Toast, or Bananas Foster Crepes.

The Crystal River Inn is widely known for its theme weekends: spa services, weddings, romance getaways, river trips, carriage rides, and especially the murder mystery weekends. These events are popular with guests and makes this Inn stand out as one of the area's most creative and memorable.

Additionally, the Crystal River Inn is located in a premiere vacation spot, nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. The entire family will enjoy the gentle waters of the San Marcos River, whether they experience it floating in a tube, snorkeling, or sharing a picnic lunch along its shady banks.

The kids will love the community-built playscape designed by the children of San Marcos, not to mention nearby attractions such as the Aquarena and Wonder World, featuring the Tejas Tower, the Mystery Mountain train ride, and the Anti-Gravity House. Mom and Dad will love San Marcos' finely manicured golf courses, as well as Texas' largest factory outlet center, with over 150 stores. Wineries, theme parks, antique stores, and many more lakes, rivers, and streams also contribute to its tourist destination. The city of San Marcos itself is a historic treasure, offering many hours of exploring and browsing.
