Top Reasons to Stay at YO Ranch Hotel and Conference Center

  • It’s located in Kerrville, in the heart of Texas Hill Country, the birthplace of many cowboy legends. The hotel’s lobby reflects this history—there’s an H. Clay Dahlberg statue of a cowboy riding a bucking bronco, and branding irons hang from the chandeliers.
  • Each guest room features hardwood furnishings and either a balcony or a patio.
  • The hotel is named after the neighboring YO Ranch, a great spot for hunting or horseback riding.
  • There’s plenty to do nearby, including a visit to any of the neighboring vineyards and wineries or the Museum of Western Art.
  • Fredericksburg, just 20 miles away, contains boutique shops, German-inspired restaurants, and the National Museum of the Pacific War.
  • Classic American fare is served in the Branding Iron Restaurant. (Two of this getaway’s options come with dining credits.)
  • The Elm Waterhole Saloon is modeled on the taverns of the old west. You can sip whiskey, play pool, or catch a game on a flat-screen TV, just like 19th-century cowpokes used to do.
  • Adults and children can enjoy the basketball, tennis, and sand-volleyball courts.

Texas Hill Country: Pastoral Landscape of Ranches, Rivers, and German American Towns

A picturesque region of rolling hills and valleys covered in bluebonnets, the area of central Texas known as Texas Hill Country has been compared to the landscape of Tuscany by the New York Times. The region is a backyard playground for the nearby cities of Austin and San Antonio. Urbanites often escape here for the weekend to enjoy the slower pace and beat the heat—its slightly higher elevation means the area is often less humid than the surrounding locales. With many state parks and spring-fed rivers, the Hill Country is a haven for outdoorsy types; popular activities range from fishing and tubing to rock climbing. The Enchanted Rock State Natural Area’s main attraction is a gigantic pink-granite dome in the middle of the park.

Among the Hill Country’s major towns, Bandera best captures the cowboy spirit. It’s not uncommon to catch an open rodeo in the summer or see a ranch hand riding to the store on horseback. The town is surrounded by dude ranches where you can get a taste of the local lifestyle. Just north of Bandera, Fredericksburg is also worth exploring. Along with New Braunfels, it was one of the main settlements of German immigrants in the 1840s—a heritage that visitors can still see today in the “Willkommen” signs hung on shop doors.
