PEACEFUL COUNTRY SETTING WITH FREE TAMU FOOTBALL PARKING

Bryan - College Station Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Pixel has lived here almost as long. She is a very friendly lab-hound mix. She hasn't spoken (barked) in several years, but she loves to go on walks and to swim in the various neighborhood ponds.

Adam purchased this cottage in 2001

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!

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. There is a large pond with a pier adjacent to and accessible from the back of the property. It is a great place for leisurely fishing, relaxing, or taking the dog for a swim.

This was our first VRBO experience and it was excellent. The rental property was perfect for us, just outside of the hustle and bustle, but close to everything we needed! The full kitchen was wonderful, the furnishings comfortable. Home owners are very friendly and accomodating. Would definitely stay here again!

The Piper Place was cozy and comfortable and very well maintained. It was very well planned out for a small rental, and we enjoyed the nicely done interior. We found it just as the pictures and listing description said it would be. The owner was very helpful and friendly. We will look forward to staying at Piper Place again!

The description to the location was very accurate. The rental's appearance and amenities were accurate to the description of the photos. The property was under construction but well kept and maintained. The owner was very helpful with any questions or concerns we had during our stay. Yes, I would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

A little out of the way but very nice. Owner was very nice and provided necessary info/directions. Lodging is located above the residence garage. Long stair climb up to the room may be an issue for those with mobility challenges. Pictures accurately depict accomodations. All accomodations were clean and very nice and met our short trip needs. 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 like 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.
