College Station house description

(We DO accept single night reservations. Please call us at 979-255-0702 before booking to reserve single nights.)

Our unique 4 bedroom/2 bath home is located in the best of college station locations. At either end of the street is a shuttle bus, at the end of the street is popular wolf pen creek park and amphitheater where locals walk, run, play and listen to free and paid concerts outdoors. Drive around the block to Post Oak Mall where you might shop or hop an A&M shuttle to the big game. No on campus parking during football games, just park and ride. Restaurants and bars are 2-3 blocks away and campus is just a few turns away.

Carnation Cottage has a large master bedroom with Sterns & Foster pillow top king and private master bathroom with walk-in shower, garden tub and two sinks. The orange and green rooms have very comfortable pillow top queens and the blue room has twin beds. Ideal occupancy is 8. We welcome large groups and can accept up to 2 additional guests at an additional per person charge of $25.00/pp/night. The living areas in our property are open and large so it has a hospitable 'gathering' atmosphere for your group.

There is a patio and grill available for cooking out and it is equipped with washer/dryer/microwave and the oh so important coffee pot. Coffee included!

During football game weekends and special events, we provide a continental breakfast on Saturdays with fruit, muffins, milk, juice, coffee and tea.

For parties of less than 8, please contact me for availability and rates. I will consider 1, 2 or 3 MONTH TERM RESERVATIONS from January 1, 2014-July 31, 2014. ADDITIONALLY, I WILL ACCEPT 1 NIGHT STAY RESERVATIONS M-F BUT YOU MUST CONTACT ME IN ADVANCE TO CHECK FOR AVAILABILITY AND TO RECEIVE A REVISED QUOTE. Please contact me before booking to discuss rates and availability.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: My name is Lori and I am an independent real estate broker, living in College Station since 1980. I grew up on the coast of Texas in Brazosport, came to Aggieland for the best education in the world and never left (except for a short stint in Houston after I graduated)! I help buyers and sellers with real estate transactions in the traditional sense but my real love is treasure hunting! I love to find bargains, whether that is a great piece of real estate or a pair of Justin ropers! I specialize in investment property and often rehab property. I play tennis and enjoy being with each and every one of my 6 children. We have a grand life here in Aggieland. There is really no better place to raise a family.

                  Why the Owner Chose College Station:
                  I love travelling and treasure hunting. This home is the beginning of a grand adventure where I can meld my hobbies and work. This home is unique in that it is in the central area of College Station but newer construction and up to date. It's hard to find this kind of housing close to campus, restaurants and shopping. I have spent hours shopping for interesting, useful, beautiful treasures to use in this home. I think you will enjoy exploring my finds. If you are a fellow treasure hunter, ask me for a list of my favorite resale, thrift, and antique shops in town.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I purchased this home for my soon to be Aggie oldest daughter back in 2006. What a great investment it has been! I waited for a home to be listed on this particular street because of the awesome location. Map it and you will see!
