Property Description

10 minutes northeast of Boerne, nestled on a high-elevation perch in the heart of the Hill Country, lies the Boerne Mountain Retreat, a roomy vacation rental with the most stunning views you'll see anywhere. The best of town and country are here, too! Boerne's nearby for shopping, nightlife, and fine foods, and the Kreutzberg Canyon Natural Area, the Cave Without a Name, and Guadalupe river tubing are all short drives away. This luxurious guest home is kid-friendly, pet-friendly, and has all the hi-tech amenities, too.

This rural nature lover's paradise is just five miles from the splendor of the Kreutzberg Canyon Natural Area and the mysterious Cave Without a Name. For an adventurous float down the Guadalupe River, there's an outfitter just a half hour away who rents tubes, kayaks, and canoes, and will drop you off and pick you up for a tubing trip.

The shaded patio here is decked out with stylish outdoor furniture, and it offers breathtaking elevated views of the forested Hill Country below. The mist in the trees in the mornings is something you'll never forget! The patio's perfect for socializing, and it also has a safety-screened fire pit. Help yourself to the charcoal grill for a hearty meal in the fresh Texas air. For the safety of your pets and little ones, the property is securely fenced.

Inside, you'll find genuine Texas decor, with hundreds of stars representing the Lone Star State. The whole space is accented throughout with gorgeous handcrafted cedar woodwork and beamed ceilings. Two huge living spaces feature plush furniture-one with a fireplace! Four bedrooms sleep up to eight on feather-soft king and queen sized beds, and the three full bathrooms include either a tub or shower; one has both. Fluffy bed and bath linens are also provided. The full kitchen features modern appliances and cooking and serving ware, including a wine cooler and beer fridge! Central air, heat, and ceiling fans will guarantee your comfort.

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.

Awesome!! Beautiful place. We had a wonderful Christmas. The house was equipped with all kinds of things, it felt like you’re in your own home. I would definitely recommend this place.
This property was as beautiful as the pictures . The house was huge and had plenty of room . Very clean. The back porch was my favorite place to drink coffee. We were 20 min from town. We even saw deer .
WE enjoyed our stay very much! The house was better than described! What stood out to me was how well outfitted the house was as everything and more was there. We have family in Cordillera and will most likely use this place again as it is so close via the back gate of Cordillera. It really was nice and was a great value in my opinion. I booked directly with yall and that was super easy. I don't know why people use VRBO - I had a very bad experience with them and won't ever go back - kinda like Bud Light!
We really enjoyed the house and found it to be very relaxing and comfortable. We enjoyed making meals there together, watching the deer and birds come through, and seeing sunsets off the back porch. There was plenty of games, puzzles. The snack basket with nice bottle of Texas wine was much appreciated and helped tide us over until we made it to the store. We definitely plan to come stay again and hope we would be welcomed back. My niece did take some photos while we were there, so I’ll see if she can send a few for me to pass along.
