Where to Stay in Boerne Texas - Ye Kendall Inn: Your Hill Country Destination

Thank you so much to Ye Kendall Inn for hosting our stay. Scroll to the bottom of this post for a video tour with me! All Photography, footage, and opinions are my own.

In the quaint town of Boerne, a short 30 minute drive north of Downtown San Antonio, lies the most adorable boutique hotel chuck full of character and history. Ye Kendall Inn established back in 1859 is both a Texas and National registered  Landmark housing guests such as President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and MY family over the Christmas Holiday! Being a Georgia transplant from Texas I thought this little fact was fun. The original owners (Sarah and Erastus Reed) moved from Georgia (where they had experience running hotels) to Boerne and opened up the inn originally naming it the "Reed House".

The recently renovated rooms will make you drool (definitely Instagram picture worthy). While touring rooms (the Sarah Reed suite specifically), I couldn't help but picture photos being taken of a bride getting ready for her big day. The claw foot tub, marble shower, fireplace, oversized windows are just a few reasons I fell hard for this room. Each room is different from the next offering unique styling with the perfect balance of antique decor and modern amenities. 

Behind the main building, just past the Antebellum Courtyard, Ye Kendall Inn has created its very own community with free standing cottages, cabins, a sweet little red schoolhouse (where we stayed), and even the most gorgeous white church building. These buildings were all trucked in from different areas around Texas and restored to their former glory. It was so cool staying in a room that was actually part of an old school house. I loved thinking about what this room was like years and years ago when students were being taught. (Stay tuned for more on the free standing buildings and our room in my next post.)

Looking for a venue for your next family gathering, wedding, or even business meeting? Ye Kendall Inn thought of all that and added Ye Kendall Halle which opens up both to the Antebellum Courtyard and the beautiful Cibolo Creek. The courtyard is just the dreamiest location for an outdoor dinner event or reception. White stringed lights and a cozy fireplace make for the perfect intimate ambiance. Inside the Halle, even though it's a newer addition they have done a perfect job bringing the character from the Inn to the venue. Antiqued mirrors, tufted leather couches, and gold detailed seating are just a few touches I loved. To get more information for events or to book your stay, click HERE or call (830) 249-2138.
