Overview

Bryan - College Station Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1bdr + living area w/pull-out sofa bed, full kitchen, laundry, large deck

The newly-constructed guest house includes one bedroom with a comfortable queen-sized bed, closet, living area with pull-out sofa bed, full-size kitchen, pantry, bathroom, and laundry room. The front door opens to a large, upper-level deck with tables and seating for four.

The fully-functional kitchen includes a full-size refrigerator, oven and cook-top with vent hood, large microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. There are place settings, cookware, cooking utensils, glasses, and other basic items for cooking.

The living area includes a sofa that expands to a queen-size bed as needed, table and chairs, and a flat-screen TV with local channels and DVD player.

The large, outdoor deck has two bar-height tables with seating for four. The deck overlooks the oak tree forest to the back of the property. It is perfect for relaxing, barbequing, and entertaining.

The guest house is located on the second level of the building and is accessible by stairs only. The building is completely private (no one lives downstairs). Solar panels on the roof supplement the building's energy systems and provide most of the electric and hot water usage.

About Adam

Adam and Kathrin both attended and obtained degrees from Texas A&M University. We have lived and worked in the area for more than ten years. Adam owns a solar business and teaches at the university, and Kathrin is a veterinarian and doing research at Texas A&M.

Adam purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Adam chose Bryan - College Station

This property offers the best of both worlds: It is a peaceful, country-like setting on 2.5 acres, away from busy town life, town lights, and town noise -- yet it is only seven minutes away (by car) to the university or downtown Bryan!

What makes this cottage unique

The New England style construction is cozy and somewhat unique in this area. The wooded setting and large area of natural landscape offers more privacy than typical neighborhoods. The neighbors are friendly, helpful, and many are often out walking on the main road.

Sparkling clean !

  • 5 of 5

Our son's knee surgery was moved at the last minute and the owner was kind enough to allow us a late arrival so we could be at the hospital. The property is new, well built, nicely furnished, and well stocked. There were plenty of paper towels, toilet paper, soap, laundry detergent, towels, etc. The kitchen is also well stocked and easy to work in. The bed was our favorite though......wonderful linens and a quality mattress. We slept like babies! One of the cleanest places we have ever stayed at. Absolutely sparkling clean! Our GPS took us right to the place which is good as the address was hard to find in the dark.

Charming nest in the trees

  • 5 of 5

This cozy, well-appointed property has everything you need for a relaxed weekend, just a few minutes from the A&M campus. The place is nestled in the woods, and there's nothing like enjoying a cup of fresh roasted coffee from the deck. The cottage was spotless and furnished nicely. The owner is right next door, friendly and very responsive to requests. We certainly hope to stay again next time we visit!

Wonderful guest house!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! The pictures are exactly what you'll see when you stay at Piper Lane. It's like being nestled in a treehouse and very private. It feels as if you are out in the country, but services are just a few minutes away by car. It's very cozy, comfortable, and quiet. I hope to return some day!

nice quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay! Quiet country setting just outside of town with a nice layout for a couple. Owners are very pleasant and helped make our first stay at a rental other than a hotel very pleasant. Highly recommend.

Situated on 2.5 acres in a quiet and friendly neighborhood, our guest house includes a large, upper-level deck that overlooks the peaceful oak forest. The wonderful country setting feels miles away from busy city life, which is why our guests find it hard to believe that downtown is only a seven-minute drive. You're just five miles from the Northgate area, five miles to some great, local restaurants, and only five miles to Kyle Field!

While you're here, be sure to visit the newly-restored, picaresque, historical downtown Bryan area as well. You'll find many local specialty shops and unique restaurants, including a popular German restaurant modeled after the owner's original restaurant in his home country. (The elaborate bar woodwork, which stretches from the first to the top of the second floor, was imported from Germany.)

If you enjoy golf, there are at least four courses to choose from around town. The closest (about three miles) is Traditions Gold Club, a Jack Nicklaus Design Championship course - considered one of the best courses in Texas.

Texas A&M Aggie football games are probably the biggest local attraction. Hotel rooms and other accommodations are usually booked to 100% occupancy many _months_ in advance. The Piper Place Guest House is perfect for home games because it offers a quiet getaway just minutes from town, and it INCLUDES FREE PARKING just two blocks from Kyle Field! We have reserved a great, convenient parking space for you in the historic neighborhood across the street (south) from Kyle field.

INTERNET: Free, fast Wi-Fi service is included.
