We stayed (just a a couple - no kids) at the Trail's End Guest House in Kerrville for 3 nights. We were greeted with friendly staff, including probably the best dog ever! We never did run into the owners, though.
The place is located on top of a hill with a great view. We stayed in the Southwest room. We had a double-jacuzzi tub with a showerhead (no stand-up shower). The room was clean. The towels plentiful, and the linens cozy. A couple of things to consider that hotels normally provide, but this place did not was a blow dryer and hair conditioner.
The breakfast was enough for 4 people. It was served every day around 8:30. It always included some exotic meat (buffalo, lamb, chirizo), an egg dish, a vegetable dish, apple juice and dessert. Yes, for breakfast! It's a great way to try a new food.
I thought for the price we paid, the value was pretty good since the bountiful breakfast was included. We had goats in view of our balcony. We walked around a little bit, but not too much as the landscaping is natural and pretty thick. It appears that they are continuing to work on/add to their place as we saw pipes, lumber, etc. lying nearby. They've built a beautiful little eating area with a great view that we peeked in at. The pool was not open when we went, although the temperatures were in the 90's, but the owner did explain that they didn't think it would be when I inquired about it.
Kerrville is a good home base if you don't want to spend the prices to stay in Fredricksburg and you plan on going to other nearby towns such as Comfort, Medina or Lost Maples.
