Comfort is a charming, historic town in the Hill Country of Texas. It is less than an hour northwest of San Antonio and just over an hour west of Austin. There is much to do and see in and around this town, so we recommend making yourself comfortable at a Comfort Texas bed and breakfast.
Indeed, architecture buffs may never want to leave. Comfort is said to have one of the most well-preserved historic business districts in all of Texas. Buildings date back to the mid 1800s, when the town was first settled by German immigrants. It is interesting to note that many of the first settlers were Freethinkers, and that the first churches in Comfort were not established until 1900.
Several of the old buildings in town were designed by Alfred Giles, a well-respected architect based in San Antonio. Ask your Comfort bed and breakfast innkeepers to point out his buildings, and enjoy wandering through town in search of them. Some blocks are truly reminiscent of another era.
Comfort features many antique shops. Allow time to poke around in them and speak with the shop keepers. Many people in town are directly descended from the early settlers, and they are full of interesting stories about the town’s history.
Enjoy wine tasting at the three Texas Hill Country Wineries in Comfort, as well as the good cooking at the eateries in town. Like we said, you may be so comfortable in Comfort that you won’t want to leave.
