About Us


The Steamboat Inn is a little slice of New Orlean’s in Texas. Situated one block from Austin Street and historic downtown, pet and child friendly. You can walk the peaceful streets of one of Texas’ oldest towns, visit museums, antique shops and dine in many fine restaurants. The Steamboat Inn delights our guests with an abundance of comforts and affords a getaway from the workday world of stress and tension. Step back in time to small town rural tranquility. We welcome children of all ages and also accept pets. Of our four rooms, two have twqueen beds and a twin to accommodate an entire family getaway.

Until recently, the Aldredge family lived at the Steamboat Inn. They moved kids, teens, pets, and cars a few blocks away in order to create larger guest facilities and provide quieter, more private experience for every guest. Kristin and Byron are still available on-site, serving breakfast, cleaning, and attending to your every need. They are careful to intrude only when appropriate but with the slightest invitation, they are happy to envelop you in Southern hospitality and warm conversation.
