Carriage Inn - Cowboy Capital of the World

Property Type : Resort

Property Description

If you're planning a visit to Bandera for a large group of people, and ideally you'd like to keep them all together, the Carriage House Inn offers an ideal solution! It's within a block or two of most of the town's attractions (the 11th Street Cowboy Bar is right across the alley), and its five suites and separate cottage provide roomy accommodations for up to 25 people. You won't miss a minute of the action or adventure in the Cowboy Capital of the World when you stay at the Carriage House Inn!

The backyard of the Carriage House Inn is a wonderful gathering spot! It's furnished with plenty of outdoor seating, and there's also a charcoal pit for the creation of hearty Texas-style BBQ meals. Strings of outdoor lights add a magical touch to your evenings here, when you aren't out and about exploring Bandera, of course. This century-old Hill Country guest home also has a covered patio out front, perfect for morning coffee, with a vintage Wild West-era carriage out in front of the Inn. The cottage also has its own private patio and fire pit!

The Carriage House Inn is kid-friendly and pet-friendly, so you're welcome to bring along small, well-behaved dogs. There's also private and covered parking on the property, as well as on-street parking close by. Keep in mind Bandera is also home to tubing on the Medina River, and the Hill Country State Natural Area is just ten minutes away.

Hill Country history awaits you at the Carriage House Inn and its cottage, tastefully decorated with antiques from the cowboy era, perfectly in sync with Bandera's theme! The inn itself has five suites, named after Hill Country towns (Medina, Bandera, Hondo, Utopia, and Tarpley). All interiors have efficient box AC and space heating units for maximized comfort. Tech and entertainment needs are met with Wifi Internet service and satellite TVs in all six guest spaces.

The suites and cottage at the Carriage House Inn feature full kitchens, furnished with fridges, oven and stove combos, microwaves, toasters, and coffee makers. These full kitchens also include pots, pans, utensils, and glasses. (The only exception is the Utopia Suite, which has a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee station in its kitchenette.) All the suites, and the cottage, include full baths, with antique cast iron tubs in the Bandera and Hondo suites.

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.
