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.

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.

We had a great time while there.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time there. The house was very comfortable and inviting. We were able to relax so easy there we didn't want to leave! The breakfast goodies were a great surprise! Was a fantastic stay! Would also make a great place for family reunions, weddings with the other available outbuildings. Loved it!

And thank you so much for letting future travelers know all that we have to offer.

A wonderful escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending a few days here - quiet, scenic, secluded. Any questions we had were quickly answered and the house was just what we wanted. There are LOTS of deer on the whole property as well as other animals. We would come back.

A little slice of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful, comfortable, amazing experience! The kitchen was incredibly well stocked, bedrooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated, the hot tub was quite large and extremely easy to get in and out of..... The freshly baked goods were a real treat! The owners here thought of everything & made us feel so relaxed, comfortable and "at home". I really can't say enough! We will definitely be back!!
