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.

Staying here was the best decision! Tricia was so amazing and sweet! They had everything we could possibly need already there for us! The picture of the bed/bedroom looked a little small and I was concerned at first, but it turned out to be perfect! We felt welcomed and they were so hospitable! Our puppies played in the water and had plenty of space to run! We were cozy and enjoyed a perfect getaway! I can’t say enough about our hosts and the location! If you are wandering if you should book this little cabin, the answer is yes! Do it!
Absolutely Delightful Stay in a Tiny Home! We recently had the pleasure of staying in this charming tiny home. The space, though compact, offered all the comforts without feeling cramped. The surrounding area was serene, perfect for unwinding and taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We especially appreciated how pet-friendly this place was. Our dog had a fantastic time exploring and lounging in the peaceful outdoor space. The hosts were incredibly welcoming, ensuring we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. It's ideal for couples or small families, and of course, your furry friends will love it too!
An easy 5-star rating from my side. Extremely friendly and respectful host, with nice, clean, quiet, and well equipped place to get some well needed rest. Would be happy to visit again!
My husband and I had the most perfect get away, we even got to bring our fur baby (dog!). The cabin, land, hot tub, was even better than expected and fit us perfectly!! We spent a day hiking at the Hill country natural area, which was beautiful. And the next day downtown trying their recommended place “Dough Joe” so yummy!! Communication while renting was great! Our first dates unfortunately didn’t work out because I had covid 3 days before we were supposed to leave. Within 30 minutes we had new dates scheduled with no problems! I will be recommending this place to everyone!
This little cabin in the woods is just what my husband and I needed. It was clean and just so sweet. We will for sure come back to this little piece of heaven again. We enjoyed the hot tub every night to relax before bedtime. Love this cabin!!!
We had the most amazing weekend at crazy horse cabin! I think our dog Miles had the most fun of all ❤️ At one point he even had a little camp buddy in the owners chiwennie, Mocha. The creek was awesome mucky at the bottom but running nice and clear, bring water shoes. We can’t wait to go back to this little shangrila ❤️
