Kuykendall Luxury Two-Story Suite
Relax and rekindle with a romantic Texas getaway in the Kuykendall Suite at our Hill Country inn. A two-story suite on the second and third floors of the main Sage Hill building, the Kuykendall Suite features a downstairs sitting room, fireplace, queen sleeper sofa, refrigerator, and powder room. The back of the unit opens up onto the huge Sage Hill porch with a sweeping view of the Texas Hill Country sunsets. Upstairs is a king size iron bed with opulent linens, fireplace, oversized bathroom with whirlpool tub, and a double shower. The suite is decorated in serene soft moss and honey tones. Other suite amenities include satellite TV, DVD/VCR player, and wireless Internet access.
The Kuykendall Family for whom this suite is named spans four generations. Pictured above the fireplace are Wylie Martin Kuykendall (1849-1920) and his wife, Susan Pierce Kuykendall (1841-1920). Wylie was a trail boss from the Texas coastal plains to Dodge City from 1866 to the 1880s for Shanghai Pierce. During the Civil War he was with the Texas Brigade on the coastal plain for the Battle of Sabine Pass. Wylie Kuykendall is also pictured in our dining room on horseback. The picture was taken at the Buckeye Ranch at Blessing, Texas, Matagorda County. Wylie and Susan had several children of whom three survived: Robert Green (Gill), Electra Miranda, and Isaac Green. Gill married Margaret Martha Moore, who was always known as Maggie. Gill and Maggie had three children: Darion, Dorothy, and Wylie Moore, known as Bill. Gill, Maggie, and their children are pictured on the wall just inside the east door. The picture was taken in Matagorda County in 1901. Gill is also pictured on the wall in the stairway in the suite. Gill and Maggie moved to Hays County due to Bill’s health. They sold 10-12,000 acres in Matagorda County and purchased 11,000 acres in 1902, just across the creek from the Inn to the west. As you stand on our west porch, all the land you see was once the Kuykendall Ranch. There is a photograph of Gill and Maggie near the hearth in the loft bedroom of the Suite. We thank Marshall Kuykendall, son of Gill and Maggie, for the use of these treasured family pictures.
