Great views, hot tub, champagne bubble tub, fireplace.
Located just a few miles from Fredericksburg and right in the heart of many of the Hill Country Wineries, this 1925 farm home has been transformed into an elegant, romantic home away from home. It can accommodate 2-6 people. Over 300 acres surround the house great for walking and enjoying nature. Guests are welcome to drive or walk to the Pedernales River and bring fishing equipment to try your luck. Being a working ranch, many cattle and horses are seen roaming the property. The front porch has a swing and rocker enticing rest and relaxation. Inside, there are two bedrooms with private bathrooms each with a champagne bubble tub and a separate shower. The kitchen comes fully equipped with all of the necessities needed for your stay. Outside the kitchen a wood porch deck leads you to a large private deck with table and chairs plus loungers. But the best part of the deck is the large hot tub waiting for guests to enter.

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
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.
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.
We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Among the Crepe Myrtles at the Monarc Ranch B&B! My husband enjoyed the fishing at the Pedernales River and caught over two dozen small-mouth bass. Every amenity you might need was provided. Was even better than the pictures! Delicious biscuits with homemade grape jelly, cinnamon bread and blueberry muffins along with yogurt and cereal were provided. Yum-O! The hot tub was terrific, twinkle stars on the private deck on a timer was a great touch! The Laslo bubble tubs were fabulous! Located just a little outside Fredericksburg, it was a perfect 4 days. We met Monica and her daughter, Rachel just briefly; they were both a delight. We'll definitely return our next trip to Fredericksburg!
Such a quite, relaxing B@B. Monica and Mark are the best hostesses we have dealt with. We had delicious goodies waiting for us every day. They were just a call away from anything we needed. They made sure our anniversary was even more special. Thank you for sharing your home with us
We loved this not so little rental on the Monarch Ranch. There is so much to love about the home and the ranch itself from the blooming Crepe Myrtles covering the fence and entry gate, the cute inviting front porch with a swing to the wrap around porch for BBQing relaxing and a huge hot tube. The house itself us so cute with all updated you could want, the big old days kitchen reminds me if those days spent visiting my grand mother. The two bedrooms are precious, comfy beds and both have their own bath with a huge tub and a walk In shower. It's a working ranch we watched the horses and the cattle roaming around. So much to do around the property from walking to the river to building fire right outside the house under the stars. Even a ping pong playing area to the side of the house. Great play to bring the kids. We stayed for our 35th anniversary and had a wonderful relaxing few days even with the rain and flooding. one walk we even seen a group if Axes deer one big buck with s huge rack seems they are just out of velvet. So rare to see. White tail we seen everywhere. We can't wait to return. May stay In Among the pecans next time also looks so nice. Thank you for the homemade goodies they were wonderful.
My friend and I had a wonderful weekend at your Crepe Myrtle home! It was a perfect, quiet place to getaway but so close to all the things there are to do in the hill country. Super comfortable beds, loved that each of us had our own spacious bathroom. Loved the special touches like the biscuits and homemade jam, plus the fresh picked berries that were so good! And the hot tub was the best:). Would love to come back!
I had the pleasure of staying 6 nights here traveling solo with my dog. The home reminds you of staying at your grandmothers as the living room and kitchen are both older quaint furnishings. Bedrooms are nice and separated by 2 bathrooms so if 2 couples were traveling they would have complete privacy. I brought my own pillow and possibly you might like to as well.The ceiling are high and also the a/c is a central air unit that is so quite. The front yard has a picket fence just right for a 14 lb dog with St Augustine grass and no stickers. Yard is very clean with a patio table and chairs on one side and no mosquitos. The back has a wrap around deck, the first side has a charcoal grill and patio table and on around the corner is another patio table, lounge chairs and hot tub. I have stayed both in Fredericksburg and now in the country and must say I prefer this country place the best. Town is only 10 minutes away and having all this privacy is worth the short drive. The ranch is very near the wineries. If you would like a nice wide open ranch with total relaxation then this is a place you would like.
The cabin was excellent! Very private and romantic. The best stay in Fredericksburg we have ever experienced. The owner even left us my favorite cheese cake and a welcome note at the front door for our wedding anniversary. Cannot wait to go back next year.
