Don your silk stockings and adjust your bustle, because today’s escape features an elegant look at days gone by with all the decadent bells and whistles of the present.

Soak up a little bit of Southern opulence at the only AAA Four Diamond bed and breakfast in San Antonio as you settle in for a two-night stay for two people in a standard queen guestroom at the historic Noble Inns's  Oge House.

Nestled in the King William Historic District, the neoclassical Oge House is part of a grand trio of restored mansions that comprise the Noble Inns. Your stately, gleaming white manor overlooks the River Walk, occupying one-and-a-half acres of grassy lawns and rose gardens.

Come for a two-night stay during the week ($219), or upgrade to the Indulgent Romance package ($448) and enjoy the additional luxury of a bottle of champagne, a box of Godiva gourmet chocolates, two champagne glasses and half a dozen electric votive candles in frosted holders to give your room a warm, sparkling glow.

Featured in Glamour, Cooking with Paula Deen, and Every Day with Rachael Ray, this Southern belle is a real charmer. The quaint antebellum decor and plush guestrooms, complete with period antiques, will make you feel like you've been transported to another era. And, the romance package lets you enjoy your choice of teddy-soft Noble Inn Signature robes or an hour-long in-room massage guaranteed to melt away your worries.

In the evening, stroll through the grounds and picnic in the garden gazebo, or while away the afternoon with your sweetheart in a hammock. Rise from your chambers every morning to breakfast on the front veranda before exploring one of Texas's most fetching cities. Wander through the Houston Street Fair and Market, or come in the fall for incredible tastings at the New World Wine and Food Festival.

Visit the San Antonio Museum of Art, or head to the Texas Folklife Festival in June and learn about the cultures of the 40 ethnic groups that settled in the state. Then go antiquing or shopping by the River Walk, and dine along the waterfront at sunset. And, because you and your better half should be treated like nobility, the romance package allows you to hop into an authentic, antique Rolls Royce for a ride downtown.

Four-star luxury in the Lone Star State? Yes, ma'am.
