About Us, and Around Kerrville...

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.

We have 22 cottages, two vintage RV's, and 9 full hook-up RV spots available for rent as well as an event center on-property perfect for family reunions, meetings and any social gathering. The property also has riverside pavilions, fire pits, grills, picnic areas and more! We are pet friendly, centrally located and sit right on the Guadalupe River and the Kerrville River Trail. The original motor court was built in the 1920's and was a part of what was known as the Water Street Courts. Completely renovated in 2017, the original motor court is a throwback to the days of yesteryear. We added Depot Alley and the River View phases in 2018 and continue to add amenities to ensure our guests have a great time when visiting.

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.
