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 Fredericksburg

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.

A wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Staying Among the Myrtles was the perfect getaway. The serenity of the nature away from the city sounds was complimented by a well appointed spacious home. Marc & Monica's hospitality was evident in the special touches throughout the home. Freshly baked goods, crisp clean linens/towels, relaxing hot tub were all enjoyed and enhanced our experience. The location was convenient to shopping, wineries, and any other excursions we wanted. We can't wait to return.

Issues added up. Will not recommend or come again.

  • 3 of 5

Hot tub took an extra day to get hot. Not enough breakfast for 5 people. Never got breakfast the 2nd day. Cats would run inside if you hesitated at the door at all. First night, truck and trailer pulled up next to our truck and didn’t identify his self and then pulled away abruptly. This caused anxiety over night because it was so dark around house and some windows didn’t lock. Creepy guys walked out of the woods when it was dark and didn’t respond when our six year old said Hi. Too many issues. We will not recommend or visit again.

Owner's Response: What can I say, but I am sorry. The morning of the day you were to arrive, my daughter and partner with this little business was in a very bad car accident. I her Mother was trying to carry on as though there were no problems. But we work as a team, so things she normally does she was not here to do, so I was trying my best to do them all. If only you had called. I left two mornings worth of homemade baked goods, a dozen fresh eggs, milk, orange juice, apple juice, coffees, teas, homemade jelly, and cereals for you to enjoy as a continental breakfast. If you needed more, I bake daily, so I could have brought over more delicious goodies. If only you had called. The man in the truck at about 6:30 pulling a trailer load of firewood, was my husband just trying to help out since our daughter was just being released from the hospital. The two guys you saw, coming out from the woods were just some of our other Guests, as all three of our Guesthouses were occupied. If only you had called. We live here on the ranch, and would have been able to answer any of your concerns. I didn't leave that day to go check on my daughter or her two children, my Grandchildren, because of work. I was a little scared, and frazzled, but I got my job done. We saw a man and a young boy over at our outside fire-circle, part of your group, that were laughing and having a wonderful time. I know you won't be back, but if you are, I hope you will try us again. And remember to call, we love to meet our Guests needs, and love love love what we do.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

First off, I would like to thank Marc and Monica for their great hospitality!!!! Their home and property is simply beautiful. On my way to the property, I was involved in a minor car accident. I figured my trip was ruined. The second I opened the door to Among the Crepe Myrtle, I knew I was back on track. Soft music was playing and the house was immaculate. There were fresh goodies awaiting us. They didnt disappoint; delicious😁?. It was so pleasant, quiet and secluded. I couldn't wait to grab a glass of wine and experience the hot tub and night stars. You truly only need your own clothes for this trip, everthing else is practically waiting for you. Their are 3 gray and white family kittens that visit. I'm a cat lover so I kinda miss them. My special place turned out to be this perfect little corner in the barn. I felt like I was being hugged everytime I sat there. There's a small metal cowboy sitting there. At night 1 small light would illuminate that area and I would gaze at it from my bedroom window. The small things that make a person smile💚?. I did not get to venture out and explore the river, but I had to leave something for when I return. 😉?😉?. This place is a must visit!

Monarch Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Love this B&B in the country. Close to trade day and on the 290 wine trail. We sat outside under the stars with a camp fire eating Smores and drinking Texas red wine. Life is so good. Then we wake up to home made cinnamon roll, biscuits, and wild grape jelly provided by the owners.great time.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Hosts were overly kind and accommodating and helped my fiance and I out with our engagement weekend. The ranch is nothing short of breathtaking. We enjoyed all the various amenities the property had to offer, e.g. jacuzzis, hot tub, porch swing, and deck. Overall, great experience and will be recommending.

Loved everything about the ranch!

  • 5 of 5

R&R at its best. Monica was an awesome host and we loved everything about this place. Plenty of outside space to enjoy beautiful hill country. The ranch feels miles away from hustle bustle, but it's close to Fredericksburg and nearly right off the 290 winetrail. This is an absolutely wonderful place to unwind!
