A recorded Texas historic landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this no-frills hotel is just a two-minute walk from the shores of the Colorado River and seven minutes from downtown Kingsland. Simple, Victorian-style rooms and suites come with antique furniture and en suite bathrooms. Three quirky, brightly-colored 19th-century cabooses have also been made into luxury accommodations. Named in part for the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs, the name also takes meaning from the fact that Llano County was then, and continues to be, a major deer hunting area.
Amenities include gardens, a store, outdoor grills, picnic tables and conference facilities. Guests can also rent boats to take out on nearby Lake Buchanan.
Grand Central Cafe is not only a place to grab a bite to eat, but the property’s Victorian house once served as a movie set for “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” in 1973. The house was purchased by The Antlers Hotel in 1998; it was then dismantled, moved to Kingsland and completely refurbished and is now home to Grand Central Cafe.
