Founded in 1856, Kerrville, Texas has long been a retreat from the bustle of city life. Originally founded by Joshua Brown along the banks of the Guadalupe about a half mile upstream from our Cottages, Kerrville quickly grew under the influence of Captain Charles Schreiner’s mohair and retail empire. Through more than 160 years, Kerrville has been a destination for enjoying the best of the Texas Hill Country.
Today, Kerrville is a thriving town of 25,000, with amazing outdoor enjoyment possibilities, award-winning culinary options, local events like the Kerrville Folk Festival and Kerrville Festival of the Arts, as well as a vibrant performing and visual art community. You can take in a play, enjoy a winery just minutes away, or take a stroll (or run) on six miles of the Kerrville River Trail, which adjoins our property.
Once you’ve enjoyed Kerrville, we’re also in a great location to enjoy other parts of the Hill Country. From River Trail Cottages, numerous day trips are an easy drive, including fall color at Lost Maples, motorcycle rides through the famous Three Sisters west of Kerrville, shopping on the San Antonio riverwalk, tubing the Comal, Guadalupe, and Frio Rivers, hiking at Enchanted Rock and winery tours in Fredericksburg, and so much more.
