The following comments are from Innkeeper Gretchen about Roddy Tree Ranch, a collection of Texas Hill Country Cabins, Cottages & Vacation Rentals on the Guadalupe River near Kerrville and Fredericksburg in the heart of Texas. Here she gives a little history of how the inn got its name and our deeply rooted feelings about the Guadalupe River area.
For me the Hill Country has always been a Family Vacation Tradition. Starting in the 1930's, my grandparents, Allie and Rhea Roddy, and my mother, Helen, spent summers, holidays, and weekends here on the Guadalupe. As I was growing up, my own family came here for the summer and every chance we got. Rhea and Allie had a place down the road everybody called the Roddy Tree where we welcomed family and friends. Today, in honor of two wonderful people who first introduced us to a tradition of hospitality and love for the Texas Hill Country, my parents and Keith and I continue this love affair at Roddy Tree Ranch.
