College Station apartment description

The Square 1 Loft is a three bedroom, two bathroom vacation apartment, with kitchenette and den, in the heart of Downtown Bryan, TX. The Square 1 Loft can house six (6) adults comfortably in three queen bedrooms. We also provide a queen inflatable bed for group should there be a need for an additional single bed, upon request. Why stay in a crowded two bed hotel room when you could have a home-like atmosphere to stay in with your group of 4-6 people during your Aggieland sport event, graduation ceremony or when visiting Bryan or College Station? Our Studio and Loft has all the comforts of home and is within walking distance of everything that Historic Downtown Bryan has to offer. Please note that we are in a Downtown Historical District, so if you prefer complete silence, you may want to look for a VRBO site ten miles outside of Bryan/College Station. With any urban setting, you will hear the sounds of trains and trucks, which we have no control over, so be prepared for this if you book with us. As with any urban setting, most everything is within walking distance! Shop at the downtown Bryan boutiques! Eat at the excellent restaurants that Bryan has to offer! Listen to live music at anyone of the six music venues Bryan has, or just walk around town and duck into the coffee shops or wine bars! The Square 1 Loft has everything to make your visit memorable. Please call Dr. Bob Pankey, Professor, and owner/operator of the Square 1 Loft if you have any questions, or simply click on the 'Book Now' button and we'll get back to you with a quote on our daily and weekly rates within 24 hours. Check In - 4:00 p.m., Departure 11:00 a.m.

              Bryan is within close proximity to Texas A&M University (6 Miles). The Square 1 Loft is a perfect getaway for weekend or weekly stays to attend an Aggie Sport event such as the Texas Aggie Football and Basketball game in College Station. The Square 1 Building is owned by Jill and Bob Pankey who use the Studio Space (3000 sq. ft.) downstairs for their working Art Studio. Please note that the Loft is located in an downtown urban setting, So before you book with us, you need to be aware that with any urban settings, there are city sounds, such as occasional trains and fire engines, trucks, etc. When everything like restaurants, shops, churches and pubs are in walking distance, it makes being in an urban setting worth while! For those who prefer complete silence, you may want to try staying at one of the VRBO Spaces ten miles outside of town. The Pankey's are often asked by their guests who stay in the Loft, 'why would anyone prefer to house their family or group of friends in a couple of motel rooms when they could rent a spacious and private Loft Apartment where their family can spread out, relax, walk to all the restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, shopping, churches and bakey in downtown Bryan? We have a kitchen with microwave, gas stove, refrigerator, coffee maker and newly installed air conditioning/heat system. Although we do not serve breakfast, there is a bakery across from our parking lot and great restaurants less than a block away. So, come visit us and see for yourself. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. Our check in time is 4:00 p.m., check out time is 11:00 a.m. on day of departure.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: The Square 1 Building is owned by Bob and Jill Pankey. Jill and Bob purchased this building to use as Jill's working art studio. The studio downstairs serves as a place where Jill showcases various Texas artists and her own works of art that are in galleries in Austin, San Antonio, Santa Fe, Ft. Worth and New Zealand.

              Why the Owner Chose College Station:
              Why stay in one or two hotel rooms in College Station during an Aggie sport weekend, festival or conference when you can have a three bedroom, 2 bathroom loft apartment where your whole family or group can stretch out, cook, and/or walk to the many pubs and restaurants in the Bryan Historical District. There are eight parking spots available, that will also hold an RV, camper or boat trailer.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              After the game or any event you are attending in Bryan/College Station, you can simply come back to the SQ1 Loft and walk to the pubs and restaurants and not worry about driving after your event with your family and/or friends. Listen to live bands next door at The Village Pub or do some wine tasting at the Uncorked Wine Bar. Taste authentic Italian Pizza at Mr. G's, or just head to Goodtime Charlie's, Casa Rod's, or Murphy's all withing a one block from the Square 1 Loft.
