Fully refurbished 1959 yacht . 300 square feet of luxury.
My name is Darrin and I am a corporate Houston burnout and have have been a full time artist /innkeeper for the last 20 years.
Darrin purchased this Boat in 2012
Why Darrin chose Ingram
Ingram is a great artist colony and being an artist myself I couldn't think of anywhere in Texas I would rather live.
What makes this Boat unique
The B&B is located on the same property as the original Ingram home built by J.C.W. Ingram in 1870. For the previous 10,000 years it was a camp for Native Americans on the bank of the Guadalupe river. The people who could have camped or built anywhere chose this particular spot .
Boat will sleep 3 adults and 2 children

Darren made us feel so welcome and he was friendly and knew the area. He told where everything was in town. We just had a really good time for our getaway! Would definitely return.
SS Minnow was Awesome
I loved my stay on the SS Minnow. What a great idea. Got to grill steak and eat dinner on the upper deck. The Guadalupe is across the street. The hill country is so beautiful. We highly recommend a stay here. Darrin was so nice and I loved Hank his dog.
Loved our stay! Super comfy bed and the owner was so nice!!
Wonderful getaway in a delightful environment!!!
The SS Minnow was the perfect retreat for relaxation and rest!!! The decor was awesome and interesting to study!!! Capt Potter was a warm and gracious host. Can’t wait to escape the city and go back!!!
Coolest place in the Hill Country
Darrin the owner goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is amazing!!!! The boat has so many unique features that you will fall in love with. You are walking distance to the river and a nice morning walk drinking coffee. Just such a cool place.
A very special place
My husband and like to stay in unique places when we take off on mini vacations. The SS Minnow does not disappoint! The yaht is filled with nautical themed art and curios. The bed was a so comfy and the shower was stocked with plenty of soft and fresh smelling towels. Darrin, the proprietor, was the best! He made sure we had everything we needed and made suggestions on place to eat and places to play on the river. I highly suggest the slime slide. Ask Darrin, he'll fill you in. Lol! And last, Hank, the most adorable mutt will greet you with a bark while furiously wagging his tail. We had an amazing time. A must stay!
Located just a short walk from the banks of the beautiful Guadalupe river. The B&B is located in an historic shopping district with world class art and antiques.Three great restaurants within easy walking distance. Take a minute to take the 3D tour of the boat on this website, it is located under "owner info" at top of the first page. So much better than flat pictures !!!
