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 Texas Hill Country

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.

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!

A great find!

Five of us enjoyed our two nights at Monarc Ranch B&B. We would certainly stay here again. The kitchen was well stocked, baked items were delicious, and it was very clean. The rockers on the front porch were a great place to unwind.

Monica was a great host! Her and Mark's place "Among the Pecans" proved to be an excellent choice since it put us really close to the beginning of where the wineries are located on 290. We rented Suite 1 and 2 since we had the 3 couples and I couldn't have a chosen a more perfect place for that arrangement. All room have queen beds and 2 of the rooms have both a shower and jacuzzi tub in a huge bathroom! The third room had a combination shower/jacuzzi tub but was not an issue for the couple that stayed in it. One suggestion was to place handrails on the shower sides for those that find it difficult stepping into the tub. Other than that, no shortcomings on anything. There are two hot tubs outside, a fire pit with chairs and working gas fireplaces in Suite 2 living area and in the bedroom of Suite 1. We especially loved the firepit and Monica left a smores basket to enjoy that evening among the stars. She baked us goodies for breakfast and the kitchen came fully stocked for breakfast and our cooking needs. Even the kitchenette in Suite 1 was stocked! The entire house is tastefully appointed with antiques and we found candy jars in each room! I could go on but this is definitely the place to stay and we will return soon!!! Kathy Yates
