Hill Country Travel Blog

28 May


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.

Wonderful almost country property that was comfortable and peaceful. Loved watching the horses in the morning and the gems I found during my morning walks around the neighborhood. Was very clean and had everything we needed. Great jump off point for many day trips with easy access. Highly recommend.
We loved our stay! This was our first time to use Airbnb. We were looking for a relaxing kid-free weekend and we got it. The house is inviting and cozy. The only neighbors we saw were the horses next door. The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The living room has an electric fireplace that was nice to use for the ambiance in the evenings. It was a quick drive in to town and the wineries. They really have thought of everything needed to have comfort in Comfort!
This was our second stay here. The house is perfect for 2 couples. Very clean, furnished with top of the line amenities. Comfortable beds, plush towels, everything very nice. We really appreciate the brand new Weber charcoal grill, which we used each evening. We love this location, being centrally located between Fredericksburg, Boerne, Kerrville and Bandera. The town of Comfort itself has very nice antique shops and great dining options, including Comfort Pizza and High St. Cafe. Downright Comfort, a store that has antiques and many unique items is a must visit.
We've stayed at many Airbnbs across the Texas Hill Country and this was one of the most enjoyable. A historic old house with well thought out additions, tastefully furnished with a mix of antiques and comfortable furniture. Thoughtfully decorated with fun pieces of art. The location was perfect being a short distance from Comfort's restaurants and shops. Centrally located between Bandera, Boerne and Kerrville which we all visited. The bed was comfortable and the towels plush. The provided robes were a nice luxurious touch. We will return.

This house is a gem in Comfort. It was perfect for our summer vacation. There was plenty of space for all of us to spread out. We took day trips to San Antonio and Fredericksburg and this was a great central point. We hope to stay again.

This house is enchanting. We did not want to leave. Sibling get together for a long weekend. Had space to all sit and visit and a large kitchen dining area for five adults. House was amazingly clean and all our needs were meet. Can not wait to come and stay again. The horse in the next pasture was a plus too.
