The 1879 Reddell House is the oldest house in the Abilene area still in its original location. A longterm project of the McWhiney History Education Group, its renovation and modernization was finished in the fall of 2011. Originally referred to as the Boone House, the structure earned its new name when renovation crews discovered a postcard lodged behind the fireplace mantle revealing that the original family to live in the house were the Reddells.
Enjoy the cozy ambiance of the original building, with its wood floors, high ceilings, old-style furnishings, and narrow staircase — combined with 21st century amenities including cable television, wifi internet, washer & dryer, and full kitchen which is stocked with breakfast supplies. Guests also enjoy access to the onsite pool!
Guests have rented the house for weekend get-a-ways, holiday dinners, bachlorette parties, wedding receptions, and lodging for out-of-town family and friends.
Rates for the Reddell House are $300/night Sleeps 8 Adults. To hold a reservation, we request 50% of the final payment. Upon arrival, guests will be asked to pay the remaining 50% of the rental fee as well as all applicable taxes.
