Nestled alongside the Guadalupe River halfway between Kerrville and Hunt lies the town of Ingram. This community of about 1,800 people is almost a combo of several towns in its vicinity, in that it’s taken advantage of local resources and has capitalized on them to make it a prime example of a Hill Country town. You’ll find farming and ranching in Ingram, wineries that take advantage of the unique local terroir, attractions linked to recreation on the river, and even a model of Stonehenge!

Just east of Hunt in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, you’ll find a marker erected in 2005 that discusses the history of the town and its vicinity. Hunt itself is located 13 miles west of Kerrville, at the junction of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe River. As the historical marker states, the town of Hunt is the ultimate result of three different communities that were founded in more or less the same place!

The Hill Country town of Kendalia is near the Guadalupe River, about halfway between Blanco and Boerne as the crow flies. It’s one of the smaller towns in the region; its population has hovered around 100 the past several decades, and when you count the ranchers and rural dwellers in its ZIP code that number increases to about 350. Nonetheless, Kendalia has a fascinating history all its own.

My friend Kate and I had a wonderful time at Antler House. We hiked both of the main trails, did a fair bit of porch sitting, saw some awesome birds and were able to leave all our cares back home for a few days. I can’t recall the last time I slept so well! So yes, I believe we will be coming back to the Hill Country, I hope very soon. Will be sure to contact you folks for excellent lodging!
What a comfy place to get away and relax. Great place to base out of and explore the Texas Hill Country. The views from High Tower were amazing. Well worth the climb! So neat to see all the animals. Multiple bison and the adorable calf, the elk, oryx and boar. The fireflies and stars from the fire pit were the perfect way to end the day.
Absolutely beautiful place! We went with our adult children for a long weekend and enjoyed it so! The aesthetics of the cabin are perfect! The set up is nice and the kitchen pretty well appointed. (The girls even baked Christmas cookies here!) There is a wraparound porch where you can sit and watch elk, deer, oryx +. The fire pit is a great place to sit around and visit in the evening. There is a great fireplace in the living room as well. Don’t spend all your time in the cabin though...the hiking trails are great and well marked. The kids were a bit faster getting to the top, but we all enjoyed it! I do recommend hiking boots if you go. Some of the footing is a bit loose and it will just make it a bit easier! The ranch is beautiful and conservation efforts are great. All the animals and wildlife are beautiful and well cared for. The owner, Robert Hamilton, is very nice and checked in with us. He was also very knowledgeable and was exceptionally patient with my millions of questions. I can’t say enough positive things about our time here. Would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away! We all are planning a return trip!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Antler house. The kids couldn’t stop talking about the hiking trails and the animals they saw. There was such a peace about the home. Definitely an awesome place.

Beautiful views. Great location for privacy and getting away. Being 30 minutes away from 3 different state parks was a plus!
This place is just as it is shown. The best views and stargazing is the best.
