Overview

About the property

Welcome to Uphouse Manor B&B! Uphouse Manor is large, light and airy, with lots of common areas perfectly suited to reading a good book, doing work in a pleasant setting, or just sitting in the sun or breeze on the verandah with coffee or a glass of wine. The property is 51,000 square feet, beautifully furnished with art and antiques.

We are located on 18th Street just west of Yale Street, between I-10 and 610 North Loop. It is an 8-12 minute drive to downtown, 10-15 minutes to the Galleria, and 20 minutes to the Medical Center. 5 minutes from metro line leading to Reliant NRG stadium (Superbowl); 20 min from Reliant NRG stadium by car.

Walk to everything you need here in the historic Houston Heights: the best restaurants, spas, and shops, most of which are within a few blocks of Uphouse Manor.

The owner is an interior designer by trade and loves art (you'll see!).

Wonderful family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Katrina's Uptown Manor is a fantastic house in a terrific neighborhood in Houston. Our family group of 15 thoroughly enjoyed our four-day stay. The house was well-equipped in every respect. The furnishings are comfortable and enchanting. And Katrina was exceptionally pleasant and accommodating. We would love to return.

Successful Flood Victims Staycation

  • 5 of 5

With three generations of the family descending on Houston and no way to house them while our home is under renovation from Harvey, this bed and breakfast accommodated the thirteen of us with grace and style. Both the large kitchen table and the upstairs apartment living area accommodated full family gatherings, and everyone had plenty of privacy among the multiple bedrooms and smaller living areas. It also afforded the native Houstonians among us to explore an area of town we seldom otherwise visit.

Relaxing stay in a gorgeous home with the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Houston. Katrina and Kendall thought of everything and made sure our stay was relaxing. The home itself is absolutely beautiful. We loved visiting on the balconies and cooking in their awesome kitchen!
