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!

16 May


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.

Great clean old apartment/units. Loved the location of the facility. Close to the active part of the community.
Best place to be when visiting 11st Cowboy Bar.
My group booked this property for the weekend of the Thunder in the Hills Rally. It was in the perfect location. We were able to walk most places that we wanted to. The covered the parking for the bikes was greatly appreciated. The room was spacious and clean. The downstairs seating area was perfect for the evening. I loved this place!
Perfect location just behind 11th Street Bar. Loud music at night but we were forwarned. Great management. Perfect for us‼️
