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 truly a blessing. We just had to figure out how to pay for it!!

Monica Jacobi purchased this house in 1998

Why Monica Jacobi chose Fredericksburg

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.

What makes this house 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 Pecans 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.

Peaceful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Monarc Ranch. This time we stayed at House Among the Pecans and once again we were so impressed with the incredible hospitality Monica extends in her attention to detail, personal touches, and the amenities at this beautiful property. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could need. The homemade breakfast items were a special treat as were the snacks provided. Everything was super clean and the beds were very comfortable. We also enjoyed the hot tub and gorgeous outdoor space. While this property is nestled away from town, it took us only a few minutes to get to Main Street and the wineries in the area. Thank you again for helping us create wonderful family memories!

Monarc Ranch

  • 5 of 5

We were faced with the challenge of evacuating from Corpus Christi for Hurricane Harvey with 3 adults, 2 children, and a dog. Monica ensured we had everything we could possibly need. The house felt like a home away from home. The beds were cozy, the kitchen fully equipped, and the jetted tub was a hit with our boys (ages 4 & 6)...they thoroughly enjoyed their nightly "bathtub parties." Fredericksburg is one of our favorite Texas vacation destinations. We look forward to visiting Monarc Ranch again!

What a great property

  • 5 of 5

My guest and I had a wonderful time at this property. We felt very comfortable and welcomed. From the moment you walk in to homemade biscuits jelly and zucchini bread to the ice cream in the freezer. House was roomy and we really enjoyed the out door living areas. Fire pit was enjoyed by all. Thank you for a wonderful experience in the hill country!
