Driving map to Landmark Inn.

Located on the banks of the Medina River and nestled in the historic Main Street town of Castroville, Landmark Inn tells the story of Alsatian settlement and early commerce in Texas. The 1850s inn, store, and mill provided services to travelers and the community into the 20th century. Quaint rooms at the on-site bed-and-breakfast provide comfortable historic lodging against a backdrop of red oaks, serene gardens, and the lazy Medina River. Day visitors enjoy tours of the site and recreational opportunities.
