Spent Thanksgiving weekend and had a fabulous time. To us being able to enjoy the fire pit and wood stove was great. The walks and seeing all the abundant wildlife was a plus. Shopped downtown Fredericksburg and Wildseed nursery, great time. Also checked the wineries which are abundant. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing time. Come back FOR SURE

Fantastic getaway to relax and unwind. We were able to take our pet with us. We knew that we were in the right place when he settled immediately in the house. Just a short drive to all of the attractions that Fredricksburg can offer. Then when the day is done we could go home and sit back and relax to a fine glass of wine from the wineries that are abundent in the area. The hot tub is a plus. We will return for sure. Easy check in and out. Homemade bakery items were a special touch!

Thank you so much for the beautiful review. We are so glad to know you enjoyed our little cottage. The homemade goods were made from scratch, so I am glad they were enjoyed as well. We hope you do return and appreciate all the wonderful words. Thank you for choosing Monarc Ranch B&B's

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for for our Honeymoon; somewhere quiet to disappear and unwind after the wedding. It was exactly what we needed! The breakfast foods provided were incredible: from farm-fresh eggs to made-from-scratch biscuits. The location was incredibly convenient, just an 8 minute drive into town. But when you're out there, it feels like you're the only person on earth. Don't expect too much from the hot tub on the patio. It had trouble getting up above 96 degrees, and some of the controls were broken, but that wasn't a deal breaker for us. We would still highly recommend this cabin. Monica and Mark have put together something really special, and we look forward to our next stay with them.

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us while you were celebrating a wonderful occasion. We have taken your words on the hot tub into consideration and decided to replace the hot tub. We have a brand new one in place of the old one with new controls and it heats perfectly. We hope you will return in the future to enjoy it! Thank you for you beautiful review and we hope to see you again soon.

Thanks to Monica and Marc for having such a fantastic B&B!! The cabin so cute and had everything we could have wanted. The view was great. Was super quiet. And the homemade brownies were absolutely delicious. Thanks so much and we definitely plan on coming out again!! :)

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B out in the country. It was very relaxing to sit in the hot tub and watch deer during the day and the heavens full of stars at night. It had all of our favorite treats and a nicely stocked refrigerator which allowed us to make our own breakfast and enjoy our stay at the cabin longer.

This was the best vacation we have had in years! The b&b was so peaceful and relaxing. We have definitely found our home away from home. Monica's attention to detail was aparent through out the house. The baked goods were made from scratch and fantastic. The huge tubs in each bathroom and the super large hotub on your own private deck were amazing. The house is set on seculed acerage so at night you can see the stars while relaxing in the hotub. We loved it, will definitely be back and we have already been telling our friends and family about "Among the Crepe Myrtles." We are so glad we found this place.

We were looking for a b&b near Fredericksburg and we were very lucky that Among the crepe myrtle was available. The house is so beautiful and well kept, breakfast in the fridge, home made cake and the jacuzzi. Texan skies look marvelous! The surroundings are also beautiful, path to the river, horses and cows. For us traveling with three children for some days washing machine and dryer were the perfect complement. Living in Europe I know it is difficult to say that we'll be back, but if our destiny takes us to Texas again we know where to stay!

We rented the entire house (Among the Pecans) for 6 adults. It was very comfortable! The host/hostess supplies all that you could possibly want, including the seasonings! We played games in the evenings that they provided, and had a blast. The porch rockers and swing were so nice to enjoy the evenings, and we also were able to view a beautiful night sky full of stars. Hope to be back in the Fall or Spring when it's cooler and we can enjoy the outdoors.

Very pleasant and secluded. Comfortable bed, well-stocked pantry, refreshing hot tub. Convenient to many Hill Country destinations. And thanks for making our late arrival easy. Highly recommended. Robert Silvey, Berkeley, CA

By far my favorite cottage to stay at in the area so far - my husband and I have stayed at 5 and my sisters and I visit for the Holiday Wine Tour and have stayed at three other homes. I've already told them that this Christmas we will be staying at Among the Crepe Myrtles because I adored my stay at Among the Texas Stars! What made it stand out?? Lets start with the personal touches the hosts left - homemade biscuits and jam, ice cold milk in a bottle and a full stock of snacks and breakfast items. In addition, she made us a homemade chocolate cake (Divine!!) and left a bottle of champagne in honor of our anniversary. How thoughtful!!! The room has a stove/oven, full size fridge, iron, blow dryer, tv with satellite and a CD player equipped with relaxing music. There's a canopy bed that's even draped with lights - very romantic! The romance doesn't end there .... We took that bottle of champagne and sat under the Texas Stars in our two person hot tub :). We even got to watch the 4th of July fireworks from there - awesome!! Location-wise, this cottage is perfectly situated off 290, close to Luckenbach, Fredericksburg and Johnson City. Close to many wineries! My husband and I both loved our stay here and will definitely return.

We rented both joined units and really enjoyed the living space. Clean and well furnished. The baked treats were an awesome surprise. We invited other family members to join us on the property one evening and all were really glad to have some romp around time in the large yard area. The dogs really appreciated having a fenced area to play in rather than the tyical leash only scenario. We were about 10 minutes from Fredrickburg so access was excellant. We definately recomend this property when vacationing in the area.

A very nice place to stay close to the winery's! It was a perfect place to come back to!

We loved our stay at the ranch! It was quiet, clean, relaxing, and home-like. We were a little disappointed by the red wasps around the hot tub area daily. They didn't sting but just flew around everywhere. We also killed quite a few insects inside the house like scorpions and spiders. The daily pastries were great, but we somewhat expected that the milk, eggs, and other items provided in the refrigerator would be replenished and they were not. Overall, we would still go back!
Risposta del proprietario
We leave a substantial amount of eggs, milk, and juice, but occasionally the guests run out during their stay. If they call us, we bring them over immediately. We leave wasp spray outside for emergencies and I would have been more than happy to come over to exterminate them. We hope you will come back and stay with us. Don't forget to call if you need anything at all.

Among the pecans was wonderful! It was beautiful and so charming! Beautiful HUGE bathrooms and comfortable accommodations! The private hot tub was so nice and relaxing! We have already decided to return to celebrate our anniversary And cannot wait! Only thing is we wish the baked foods had been replenished...they were homemade and delicious!

We had a wonderful time. The owner thought of everything an took good care of us! We often stay in properties like this one in different parts of Texas, but the attention to detail at Monarc Ranch is unparalleled. It is always a pleasure to work with this owner. The property is beautiful and the location is perfect! We will stay here again!

It was peaceful, very clean, and welcoming. Would definitely stay here again!

I booked a weekend stay at Monarcranch's "Among the Texas Star's and from the very start from booking, certain discounts, home made baked goods, champagne and even home made Wild grape Jelly these guy's made our stay one to allways remember, my wife and I have found our home away from home, we are still giddy over the attention paid to make up confortable and I can honestly say when planning another stay in Fredericksburg it will Monarcranch or nowhere.

Thanks Monica!!! The ladies loved it. They liked the rooms, the tubs in the rooms, the hot tub outside, the swing-chair, the rocking chairs, and the atmosphere. We enjoyed the Among the Pecans suites during our stay June 7-9, 2013.

Quiet, quaint, little cottage on a ranch. The private hot tub and fire pit were perfect for relaxing and getting a little time away from all stress and hustle and bustle of everyday life. Was the perfect place to spend our anniversary.

My husband and i stayed here for our honeymoon and it was fantastic! We had a full kitchen, grill, firepit, hammock, hot tub, and porch swing! The hostess was extremely pleasant and her baking skills should be advertised as outstanding! The perfect place to stay! Deer everywhere and a great little cabin about 10 miles outside of fredricksburg!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it could not have been any more perfect. It was such a beautiful place. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch or on the swing in the evenings. Enjoyed the hot tub as well. So close to Fredericksburg and just a great place. We will definitely be back again.

Monica made our 50th anniversary very special with the cake with the gold sprinkles and champagne in a bucket candle, the bottle of champagne and of course all the delicious home baked goods. It was the honeymoon we never had and it was like heaven on earth. She definitely "has it right". Out of this world for special occasions and great for quiet relaxing get aways.

We celebrated our 29th anniversary at Among the Texas Stars and we cannot overstate how wonderful our stay was! From the charming cabin to the amazing baked goods to the banks of the Pedernales we felt like we had found our little piece of paradise!! We have taken little getaways for our anniversary every year and we rarely go back to the same place because there is just so much to see and do....but we will absolutely return to the Monarc Ranch B&B....soon and often!!

Everything about the Among the Texas Stars cabin screams private, romantic, get-a-way!. The property is gorgeous! And the owners are great! All of the little ammenities, like the treats left by the owners, the hot tubs, and the charm of this place just makes it that much better! And everything you need is there. I would highly recommend Monarc Ranch to anyone who would like to visit the Hill Country and have a relaxing get-away!
