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.

nice quiet get away

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.

wonderful country setting

  • 5 of 5
I was in town for my wedding and needed a place I could stay, get ready in, and a pretty location to do a couple photos. The owner was very accommodating and helped me find parking for everyone. It was very quiet at night so slept very well. I absolutely loved my stay, I LOVED the shower, but there was a few minuscule things I noticed that probably aren't even noteworthy. At night it is very dark so the walk to the staircase and a couple steps up are in the dark until a light comes on for you. There is no curtain or anything on the front door window which is beautiful during the day but at night not so much lol. In order for the bedroom to get as cold as the rest of the house you have to leave the door open which if anyone is like me can't stand doing. Like I said before minuscule but there you go.

Tranquility and comfort only a stone's throw away from TAMU

The property is located just minutes away from campus yet provides comfort and privacy. We utilized the kitchen and dined on the porch - and later enjoyed the occasional firefly! The host is very accommodating and communication was excellent. Highly recommend.

Very Nice place. Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
We used the apartment when we moved my daughter into her dorm. The apartment was very close to campus. it was spotless and very comfortable. A/C worked well. Plenty of hot water.

Do not hesitate to rent this place. I'll rent it again when we go visit if it's available.

great alternative to a hotel

  • 5 of 5
I stayed three nights during a conference. Its not a bad drive into town, just a few minutes. I pictured a more spacious front yard to park in but its not real open. It was no problem, just not the picture I had formed in my mind.
The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean and as described. It was very quiet and the owner communicates well. I would definitely like to stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your sincere review. I would like to clarify to avoid confusion with regard to football game parking. The Free Football Parking advertised are reserved spots located a couple of blocks just south of Kyle Field.

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
Apartment was 90 degrees at check-in, took over 6 hours to cool. No information or instructions left at property. No wifi information. No toilet paper. Very disappointed.

Owner's Response: The guests had three ways to ask for assistance: my personal mobile phone, knock on the door, phone number of a neighbor on call, and (a fourth, actually) the VRBO staff. No one was contacted. In fact, I sent a text to the tenant upon arrival asking if all was OK. Their only response was they had arrived and needed the wi-fi password. Had they mentioned anything about the A/C or other concerns, we could have handled everything right away. (For example, there is a turbo mode on the A/C for quick cool-down in such cases.)
The real disappointment here is the guests' failure to communicate, even when directly asked! We cannot help you if you keep information from us until a week after you've already left.

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.
