Overview

About the property

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, barbecuing, 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 Canyon Creek

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.

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.

Beautiful little cottage in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best examples of good design and use of space that I have ever seen. It felt much larger than it actually was. I loved the rural atmosphere, yet it was close to everything you need. The big deck was really nice and the view was gorgeous. The owner and his family were really good people. They were there if you needed them, but made sure you had your privacy. If you want a quiet little get away, you need to see this place.

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!!

  • 5 of 5

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!! Everything about this place is amazing...the location, the amenities, the feeling of "home," and the availability and genuine hospitality of Adam and his family. If available, this will be the only place I will stay when I come back to TAMU each Summer! What a blessing!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of it. Nice clean homey property. We ate out on the balcony for breakfast. So peaceful. We will for sure stay again this time next year if my son makes State Equiene Special Olympics again.
