Comfort Texas Hill Country Homes and Land

Comfort TX land, Texas ranches, and Texas Hill Country homes are located in Kendall County, south of our SAGE Premium Texas Real Estate offices in Fredericksburg, 45 miles northwest of San Antonio.  The town of 2,400 residents offers visitors antique shops, excellent restaurants, bed and breakfasts, and three local wineries.  Tourists are enamored with historic downtown Comfort TX real estate.

Situated in a peaceful area along the Guadalupe River, Texas Hill Country real estate in Comfort is popular for youth camps, riverfront homes, Texas hunting ranches and recreational properties such as Flat Rock Ranch for mountain biking.  Buckhorn Golf Course is popular, too.  The community features Texas Hill Country homes with great views and open spaces.  Yet, they are not too far from employment in San Antonio.

Comfort is proud of its historic past.  It boasts one of the richest historic business districts in Texas, which is comprised of over 100 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.  Comfort is home to the 1880 Ingenhuett-Faust Hotel built of rock and the 1930s Comfort Theater with its art-deco styling.  Several historic buildings house B&Bs.

In 1854, a handful of German Freethinkers left New Braunfels and stopped at a pretty place on the Guadalupe River.  They called it Camp comfort.  The industrious community produced building materials, farmed, and raised sheep and goats.  In the 1800s, it had become the Angora Goat King of the World.

Along with numerous settlers of Hill Country, these German immigrants retained a Union posture during the Civil War.  The Treue Der Union Monument honors their efforts to fight cessation from the Union.  Another interesting stop in Comfort is a bat roost, built to control mosquitoes.  It is one of only two remaining in the United States and Europe.

From the convenient location near TX State Highway 27, US Highway 87, and Interstate 10, residents and second-home owners find all necessities within a 30-minute drive.  Comfort Chamber of Commerce promotes local businesses and events, underlining why people say, “I found Comfort…in Texas!”

Comfort Independent School District serves the families in the area.
