Property description

Aside from the casual cottage style, there is little rustic about this eclectic 1951 Cape Cod in the quiet old Bryan golf course neighborhood. The cottage facade belies the large interior space which is updated throughout and ready for entertaining or quiet enjoyment for 1 to 10 or more guests. The house is available for game weekends or to host special events with small or larger groups. The Link House is one of the best private accommodations in BCS for comfortable retreats, TAMU events, holidays with family, wedding parties, family reunions, scrapbooking weekends, and more. Available for weekends and holidays only through the school year.


The Link House hosts small intimate groups and larger gatherings equally well. It is ideal for reunions, accommodating out-of-town wedding guests, hosting showers, etc. The living room is spacious and ready for quiet gatherings or table games. The large screen TV and high performance sound system are great for music, electronic gaming, cable TV, or full surround sound for movies on DVD or streaming from the internet.

The house kitchen is open, completely updated and well equipped and stocked for breakfast or gourmet cooking. Serving and table service for 16 or more is available to guests. The kitchen opens over the bar to the Billiard Room for an extended gathering.

The kitchen and guest rooms overlook the large patio and woods outside. You can watch finches, cardinals, jaybirds, mockingbirds, squirrels, hummingbirds, rabbits, dragonflies, and a few surprise visitors feeding and moving about the patio and woods adjacent to the creek on the premises. The fire pit is great for a quiet fire on a cool evening or for grilling or open pit barbecue on game or event days. Outdoor seating is available for large groups.

The Link House is convenient to everything in the BCS area. Shopping centers and many of the best local restaurants and shops are nearby. Chicken Oil, historic Martin’s Barbecue, The Burger House, and Farm Patch are just around the corner. Northgate and Main Street Bryan are a short drive away. Event venues and sports facilities are easily reached and the Bryan Municipal golf course is one block away. Just over one mile down Wellborn or South College you reach the TAMU campus. Blinn College is easily found a short drive up Villa Maria. Convenient transportation to either campus is available through the shuttle service with a stop just one block down the quiet street.
