Kerrville, Texas 2009
Kerrville offers a wonderful taste of the Texas hill country. Accommodations are first-rate, the people are friendly and the scenery is definitely Southwestern. Sparkling, spring-fed creeks meander through the rugged terrain and rolling hills of the Guadalupe River Valley.
We have reserved the Inn of the Hills Conference and Resort (www.innofthehills. com). Having exclusive use of the conference resort gives us unlimited opportunities for intimate fellowship and activities. Most of the additional housing is available within three miles of the site. With so many of our members staying on property or within a short drive, we plan to offer special venues for teens, singles, young adults and senior citizens. Services will be held in the beautiful 1,100-seat ballroom.
San Antonio is only one hour away via direct interstate highway. A trip to San Antonio will give our brethren the opportunity to visit the famous River Walk, River Walk Mall, the Alamo and other popular sites.
The Kerrville area offers 14 wineries within an hour’s drive of the resort. Historic Fredericksburg, with its German heritage and over 150 shops and boutiques, is only a few miles away.
Kerrville’s riverfront location lends itself to a variety of water-oriented recreational activities, such as canoeing, kayaking, tubing, fishing, swimming or waterside family picnicking. Numerous antique shops, contemporary art galleries and boutiques as well as two challenging golf courses add to Kerrville’s appeal. Kerrville also offers a four-star-style restaurant for the gourmet.
The Inn of the Hills Conference Resort has a beautiful courtyard with pool and spa. Its on-site restaurant, the Alpine Lodge, has seating for 160 with the Inn Pub open nightly offering live entertainment.
Complimentary membership to the Family Sports Center, located just across the street, is available to those staying on property and offers an indoor pool, lap pool, basketball, racquetball and volleyball courts, weight-lifting center, sauna, 16-lane bowling alley and other amenities.
With all of its out-of-the-way charm, Kerrville is only one hour from beautiful San Antonio, only 1½ hours from Austin, four hours from Houston and five hours from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The elevation is 1,645 feet, with a mild climate and temperatures averaging a high of 80 and low of 52 degrees Fahrenheit.
