Boerne’s Historic Ye Kendall Inn is Now “The Kendall”!

The Kendall - Sara Room

The Kendall has exciting news and updates to share about the historic hotel and the Boerne experience they have to offer! Along with their new name, they have completed a full property renovation. Each room, suite and cabin has its own unique feel and decor that exudes a sense of luxury and charm. Guests are in love with the attention to detail in each space. There will even be a giveaway opportunity this week, so keep reading for a chance to win it!

A Brief History

Built in 1859, The Kendall has always been a stagecoach stop and inn, it was also the home of Erastus and Sarah Reed. They purchased the land from John James for a mere $200. It stands as one of Texas’ longest continuously running hotels. In earlier days of traveling, homeowners would often share their spare rooms for weary travelers, renting out the spare rooms of the inn to stagecoach travelers and horsemen. The Kendall is both a Texas and National Landmark. Some famous guests include Dwight D. Eisenhower, Robert E. Lee, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton!

Peggy’s on the Green

Inside the inn, dive into the scrumptious menu of Peggy’s on the Green. This restaurant boasts elevated cuisine inspired by owner and chef Mark Bohanan’s late mother, Peggy, and her taste for delicious southern fare! Choose to be seated in the fine yet rustic atmosphere of the dining room, or opt for a breeze overlooking the Cibolo Creek on the wraparound porch!

Giveaway Opportunity

The Boerne Visitor Center will be taking over the Texas Hill Country Facebook page for a Facebook Live Event THIS Friday, August 9, 2019 at 4:00 PM. They will take you through a tour of the hotel and discuss its history, vision, restoration process and amenities! There will be a giveaway for a free 2-night stay at this historic landmark, so be sure to engage during the event. Don’t miss out!
