Distinctively Placed

The Kendall is inimitably placed along the Cibolo Creek in the heart of Boerne’s downtown historic district. The designs of an 1859 Greek Revival structure allow for an exceptional use of space and environment creating the most comfortable experience year-round. Located just outside the front doors of the hotel you will find the trail head for Cibolo Trail (click here for information), a beautifully appointed walk way that follows Cibolo Creek and connects to the other end of the Historical District.

Our History

The history of The Kendall begins April 23, 1859 when John James sold the land to Erastus and Sarah Reed for $200. During this time The Reeds built the center section of the Inn as their home, bringing the Southern Colonial style of architecture to the Texas Hill Country.

Back in the early days there weren’t regular hotels for travelers. However, the few homeowners of the town shared their spare rooms. This is where the Reed’s hotel tradition began. Renting out their spare rooms in the Old Reed House to horsemen and stagecoach travelers. The grounds around the house served as a wagon yard for ranchers, who penned their cattle in what is now the City Park, awaiting other cattle for a big drive up the trail.

The Kendall is both a Texas and National Landmark and has given shelter to many famous people including President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
