About Monica Jacobi

Monica and Marc Jacobi met in college in the 70's, and found out they had a lot in common. Their dreams included family, keeping close friendships, travel, cooking, and some day living in the country. Just a small place, with a swing. And after raising 4 children, and all of their other teenage friends, it finally happened. It took us 3 years to find our special place, but we found it...360 acres nestled in the Texas Hill Country. Wild Life, Fruit Trees, River, guests, family memories, treasures abound, the utter peace and quiet, the beauty, it is truely a blessing. We just had to figure out how to pay for it!!

That was easy, we love to travel, we have lots of friends near and far, we have 4 children, all we have ever done is feed everyone, entertain, and everyone loves to visit the Hill Country. We had these cute little houses on the land, that had been built at various times since the 1920's, and owning and running B&B's seemed very logical to Monica. Marc on the other hand had to be convinced.

Our family, almost all, have enjoyed our labor of love. The houses needed quite a bit of updating, but we wanted to keep some of the old world ambience. Marc our CPA, had to keep Monica on budget. Dad was retired, but helped out so much it wasn't even funny. He knew how to do almost everything. And we loved the free advice, and the free help. Thank You Dad! And Mom, well she was a doll, taking photos, fixing meals, and manning the fort (or their own ranch) while Dad was busy working with us. But when my husband asks me where I want to go on vacation, I always say, why go anywhere, I live on a resort. Unless, it is to hear our daughter sing, I guess we wouldn't go very far. We love our place and hope you will join us here some day. Sex sells, in this business, and so we try to make the B&B's very romantic, but we also cater to families, so there are games, and nature for all.

Monica Jacobi purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Monica Jacobi chose Texas Hill Country

We tried to make our little houses feel like homes away from home. We would love to have you as our guests. Some like to say howdy, and some want the seclusion. Whatever your wish is, this place hopefully will heal hurts, make loving memories with family or friends, and remind you of a simpler time, a time that our parents and grandparents enjoyed.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is located right in the middle of the 290 wine trails. It is just outside one of the cutest little German towns in Texas with shops and great restaurants. Among the Crepe Myrtles is located on a 360 acre working ranch with a game barn that has a ping pong table and horseshoes. There is picnicking or fishing at the river which is about 1/2 a mile stroll. There is abundant wildlife to capture, along with horses and cows. The best part about this property is you can just sit on the front porch overlooking the hill country and rock away your cares.

The absolute perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great & very relaxing time while staying at Myrtle Crepes. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and were welcomed with a sign at the front door, a happy birthday banner inside the house along with a carrot cake, cinnamon rolls, champagne & other homemade goodies! The house was spotless & very comfortable, yet keeping the "old farm home" feeling. The outbuildings were even perfect with covered seating & games for the one night it rained. I wish we could have stayed longer! Fredericksburg is a great place to visit!

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! This is a very nice place to stay and is away from others so it is quiet. We have a dog who we travel with and he likes to bark when we are not with him so this was perfect. The place is clean and has most of what you need. It is an old house with original cabinets, doors, and hardware so the doors and floors creek but it adds to the charm of the old home. The Jacobi's are very friendly and see that you have what you need. The a/c had an issue and when I called Monica came right out and so did Marc they stayed for a few hours while Marc worked to get it running again. Monica stayed on the porch and we chatted for a while. Great place and people!! Will definitely come back again!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This was the best find! The house is beyond charming and the amenities and property are exactly what was described and expected. I recommend this ranch to anyone who wants to get away for relaxation and even star gazing! The owner even personalized a birthday cake and provided champagne upon arrival-a wonderful addition. Thank you and we will be back!!

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I were lucky enough to stay 2 nights at "Among the Crepe Myrtles", and I can tell you that we will definitely be back! It was very clean and Monica has forgotten no detail. There were bath salts in the bathroom, homemade brownies on the stove, along with homemade biscuits, jelly and blueberry muffins (all excellent). It was also festively decorated from one end of the house to another for St. Patty's Day. Loved it! We walked a short walk down to the river and our dogs had so much fun snooping around. It's a beautiful place to stay and was extremely quiet. There are numerous seating areas on the property, including ping pong tables and a fire pit. The deck was also a nice addition with a HUGE hot tub. We also enjoyed watching the three amigos (kitties) playing around outside the house in the mornings. Thank you Monica!

CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a lovely and relaxing 3 nights here for Valentine's Day. It was so peaceful and so relaxing! I don't even know where to begin as everything was just so great and far exceeded my expectations. I guess I'll start from the first impression when we drove up to the gate. The gate was decorated for Valentine's Day and as we drove up to the property, we were surrounded by cattle and their calves, horses and deer. The outside of the house and the adorable white picket fence were beautifully decorated for V-day as well, even personalized for us. As we entered the house, there was romantic music playing and we found yummy treats (buttermilk biscuits, pecan muffins, homemade jelly and heart shaped brownies) waiting for us on the table as well as champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge. We immediately felt at home. Everything was clean and anything you could need was provided. The bubble tubs were more powerful than I thought they would be. They had very strong jets and there was plenty of hot water to fill up the tub. It was a great way to end the day with a glass (or 2) of wine. The bed was super comfy. I spent every morning on the porch drinking my coffee and watching the sunrise and listening to all the birds sing and all the nature sounds surrounded by the cats that have taken up residence there. There are 7 of them and they were no trouble, in fact, I enjoyed having them around. They were very entertaining! One night, we sat around the fire pit sipping wine and making s'mores. The night sky is just breathtaking! You can see so many stars. We will be bringing a telescope next time we come. There is also a great covered game center next to the house that has a Ping-Pong table, corn hole, horseshoes, ladder ball, etc. The hot tub out back was great, too! We made a few trips into Fredericksburg and did some shopping and dining on Main St. and went to the Pacific War Museum, but we didn't want to leave this place for too long and would be content to spend all our time at the house. As for the owners, I met Monica once when she brought us some still-warm, home made cinnamon rolls the second day we were there. She was very sweet and talked to us about the property, etc. for a little while. I felt she was kind and genuine and you can tell she pours her heart into this place and works very hard to please her guests! I booked another trip here as soon as we got back home! Thank you for everything, Monica!!
