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.

Loved the house. Everything about it was comfortable and inviting. The Hillhouse was a pleasant surprise. The land is truly beautiful. The owners were nice, came at the end of our stay to ensure everything was to our liking. The owner Karl Kinsell walked the property with me and it was great connecting with him. The wildlife there was so plentiful. I played guitar and flute by the natural amphitheater and the mallards would fly to where I was. An amazing experience. Deer would come out throughout the day. The property is a Texas gem. Thank you Backroads and Karl for everything. Many blessings, Carlos Royo
