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. 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. The property has hunters during hunting season (October to January) so be very careful about roaming the property during this time.

Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen which is fully equipped with range/oven, large refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. There is also a washer and dryer for those longer stays. Two private bedrooms both with queen iron beds have their own bath. The beds are topped with quality, elegant down comforters. Both baths have a large champagne bubbler tub and separate shower (both of the showers is built for the physically impaired). Outside the kitchen a deck leads you to a large private area with table, chairs plus loungers, and a charcoal grill. But the best part of the deck is the large hot tub waiting for guests to enter and enjoy soft twinkle lights for those starless nights. There is a cellar located on the deck and although it is not for guest's use it is there in case of weather emergencies.

Double Booked
Good luck. The owner double booked; even though I booked almost 4-months in advance I didn't find out until the day before my birthday vacation. She did try for hours to find me another place to stay, but so close to a holiday none were available.

Cozy, Comfortable, and Quiet
Very private and quiet location, yet close enough to the wineries and downtown. Our house was perfect. My sons and I spent a few days here celebrating birthdays and Christmas. We enjoyed the hot tub and the special breakfast goodies and homemade birthday cake Monica made. The grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. We will definitely return.

Love the Country setting of Monarch Ranch!
Among the Crepe Myrtles was a lovely country setting! Loved being able to drive in and see Deer running in the fields. Also horses and cows nearby. Lovely Baked goodies the day of arrival. Very comfortable house with lots of outdoor seating. We had rain a couple of days, so we did not use the Hot Tub. We certainly enjoyed our stay. The owner was a delightful person!

Out in the country
We had a nice time in the little country house "Among the Crepe Myrtles". The kitchen was complementary stocked with fresh eggs, milk, cereal, snacks, fresh baked biscuits and muffins. We only had one issue with this place which was a scorpion in the bed. So if you stay, make sure to inspect your room carefully. I'm sure people who live in the hill country are used to these types of pests. Other than that, we soaked in the hot tub, went to main street Fredericksburg for shopping, went to enchanted rock to explore, and had a wonderful anniversary.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, with one exception. The little critters are part of Hill Country Life. We don't usually see them inside, unless we are going to have rain soon, and as a farmer and rancher, well we love that little forecast prediction. Hope you will come back again soon.

Country Home
I surprised my wife for our 30th anniversary with a getaway to Fredericksburg. We stayed on Monarc Ranch in Among the Crepe Myrtles. Monica and Marc made our visit so special with daily, home baked breakfast goodies and generously provided champagne and dessert for our anniversary. The 1925 farmhouse among the trees and wildflowers was comfortable and loaded with thoughtful extras (hot tub, wifi, kitchen goodies) to make our stay relaxing. Since we also live in the country, Among the Crepe Myrtles made us feel very much at home. It was such a pleasure meeting Monica and Marc. We definitely plan on visiting again.

Little Piece of Heaven
Truly a little piece of Heaven. This was the perfect place for our "Geriatric Spring Break". We loved the peacefulness and privacy. Even when there were neighbors we felt like we had whole ranch to ourselves. The homemade goodies were DELICIOUS. We could taste the love in every bite. I highly recommend this place. Monica is super nice and pours her heart and soul into making sure everything is perfect. We loved seeing the deer run in the field and graze all around the property as well as the horses and cattle. We can't wait to return.

Perfect place for a weekend get away.
Great place to spend some time with friends or family. The house is comfortable, very clean, and really quiet. We had a wonderful time here, enjoyed the hot tub, and home made food. There are several areas to sit and relax.

Such an amazing experience!
Four of us stayed her for a Girls Wine Weekend and it was phenomenal!! The house is awesome, the ranch is breathtaking. We could have stayed forever. You have wonderful grounds with tons of animals keeping you company. At night you have a sky filled of beautiful stars. Sandwiched between an awesome 8 person hot tub and a beautiful area with a hammock and fire pit. We all cannot wait to head back!!!

Country charm at it's best
Well, what can I say? Monica and Marc did it again. This was our 2nd time on the ranch booking the cabin last time, we needed more room to bring my parents. Monica's treats where outstanding as always, and everything was charming. Can't wait till next year to return. Loved waking up early and take advantage of the hot tub under the stars and the full moon before the sun was up. Then enjoyed a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise with all the nature sounds of turkeys, woodpeckers, geese, cows adding to the atmosphere.
