THE SQUARE 1 LOFT, DOWNTOWN BRYAN, BOOK EARLY FOR AGGIE WEEKENDS 2014

Bryan - College Station Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Will Sleep Maximum of 6 in the Loft 'Bed and Breakfast' Like Apartment.

The Square 1 Loft is a three bedroom, two bathroom vacation apartment, with kitchenette and den, in the heart of Downtown Bryan, TX. The Square 1 Loft can house six (6) adults comfortably in three queen bedrooms. We also provide a queen inflatable bed for group should there be a need for an additional single bed, upon request. Why stay in a crowded two bed hotel room when you could have a home-like atmosphere to stay in with your group of 4-6 people during your Aggieland sport event, graduation ceremony or when visiting Bryan or College Station? Our Studio and Loft has all the comforts of home and is within walking distance of everything that Historic Downtown Bryan has to offer. Please note that we are in a Downtown Historical District, so if you prefer complete silence, you may want to look for a VRBO site ten miles outside of Bryan/College Station. With any urban setting, you will hear the sounds of trains and trucks, which we have no control over, so be prepared for this if you book with us. As with any urban setting, most everything is within walking distance! Shop at the downtown Bryan boutiques! Eat at the excellent restaurants that Bryan has to offer! Listen to live music at anyone of the six music venues Bryan has, or just walk around town and duck into the coffee shops or wine bars! The Square 1 Loft has everything to make your visit memorable. Please call Dr. Bob Pankey, Professor, and owner/operator of the Square 1 Loft if you have any questions, or simply click on the 'Book Now' button and we'll get back to you with a quote on our daily and weekly rates within 24 hours. Check In - 4:00 p.m., Departure 11:00 a.m.

About Dr. Bob Pankey

The Square 1 Building is owned by Bob and Jill Pankey. Jill and Bob purchased this building to use as Jill's working art studio. The studio downstairs serves as a place where Jill showcases various Texas artists and her own works of art that are in galleries in Austin, San Antonio, Santa Fe, Ft. Worth and New Zealand.

Dr. Bob Pankey purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Dr. Bob Pankey chose Bryan - College Station

Why stay in one or two hotel rooms in College Station during an Aggie sport weekend, festival or conference when you can have a three bedroom, 2 bathroom loft apartment where your whole family or group can stretch out, cook, and/or walk to the many pubs and restaurants in the Bryan Historical District. There are eight parking spots available, that will also hold an RV, camper or boat trailer.

What makes this apartment unique

After the game or any event you are attending in Bryan/College Station, you can simply come back to the SQ1 Loft and walk to the pubs and restaurants and not worry about driving after your event with your family and/or friends. Listen to live bands next door at The Village Pub or do some wine tasting at the Uncorked Wine Bar. Taste authentic Italian Pizza at Mr. G's, or just head to Goodtime Charlie's, Casa Rod's, or Murphy's all withing a one block from the Square 1 Loft.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Square 1 Loft was perfect for our needs. It was spacious, very nicely appointed, and spotlessly clean. We were busy while we were in town so we didn't spend much time in the loft, but it would be perfect for a longer stay. The rooms were all a good size with nice beds, so none of us felt he was making a sacrifice by taking one room over the other. The location, as well, was excellent. Everything in town was within short walking distance. Dr. Pankey and his wife were there to meet us and they were both very charming. Excellent hosts! I strongly recommend staying here.

Fabulous Place for Camp participants

  • 5 of 5
We arrived for an equestrian camp and stayed two nights. They rooms are exactly as portrayed and the place was spotless. It so very nice to come "home" at the end of a very long day feel at home. The only draw back is the proximity of the train. But we were so tired, it really didn't matter~

The Owner was super to work with and communications were timely and well received.

I would highly recommend Square 1 Loft!!

Owner's Response: Kelly and her group were excellent guests and left our Apartment VRBO Loft in great shape upon their departure. I'd recommend them for occupancy at any time. I would also like to thank them for being such great guests and hope that they will come again and visit Square 1 sometime in the near future. Keep your saddles on tight and take good care on your journey! Bob

Excellent Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
What a great weekend away....the loft was beautifully decorated and funky. We had access to an outside patio that was great for a bottle of wine and take out. Excellent location and the owners are super pleasant.

Great space

  • 4 of 5
We loved the loft! It is so eclectic and fun! It had a great floor plan with a nice location close to everything in downtown. The only downside is the noise from the train, fire station, and live music down the alley. We had to buy a sound machine the second night to help us sleep through the noise. Despite the noisy neighbors, we would still stay there again because it was such a great space :)

60th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the pleasure of meeting Jill & Bob Pankey and were treated to a personal tour of their gallery during our stay at the Square 1 Loft. We loved their colorful,Texas inspired art and they could not have been more accommodating to me and my family. I grew up in Bryan in the 60's and had not been back there in over 30 yrs, We had a great time visiting the renewed downtown Bryan and the Loft was the perfect location for our trip down memory lane. I would high recommend the Square 1 Loft to any one visiting the Bryan,College Station area it was just as it was pictured on the web site. Thanks again Jill & Bob for helping to make my 60th memorable.

Charming apartment in the heart of Downtown Bryan

  • 5 of 5
This apartment located above an artist's studio was perfect for a weekend getaway. Comfortable beds, two full baths and a complete working kitchen provided every convenience. Not to mention the artists' work displayed on the walls. So fun and so Texas! Nearby restaurants, shops, a wine bar, coffee shop and pubs provided a full weekend of rest and relaxation without ever getting back in the car. If you're lucky, you will get to meet the artists downstairs. Generous, warm-hearted people!

Bryan is within close proximity to Texas A&M University (6 Miles). The Square 1 Loft is a perfect getaway for weekend or weekly stays to attend an Aggie Sport event such as the Texas Aggie Football and Basketball game in College Station. The Square 1 Building is owned by Jill and Bob Pankey who use the Studio Space (3000 sq. ft.) downstairs for their working Art Studio. Please note that the Loft is located in an downtown urban setting, So before you book with us, you need to be aware that with any urban settings, there are city sounds, such as occasional trains and fire engines, trucks, etc. When everything like restaurants, shops, churches and pubs are in walking distance, it makes being in an urban setting worth while! For those who prefer complete silence, you may want to try staying at one of the VRBO Spaces ten miles outside of town. The Pankey's are often asked by their guests who stay in the Loft, 'why would anyone prefer to house their family or group of friends in a couple of motel rooms when they could rent a spacious and private Loft Apartment where their family can spread out, relax, walk to all the restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, shopping, churches and bakey in downtown Bryan? We have a kitchen with microwave, gas stove, refrigerator, coffee maker and newly installed air conditioning/heat system. Although we do not serve breakfast, there is a bakery across from our parking lot and great restaurants less than a block away. So, come visit us and see for yourself. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. Our check in time is 4:00 p.m., check out time is 11:00 a.m. on day of departure.
