Lovely historic house! Will book again!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for a leadership transition retreat. The pool was perfect for leisure time during the day. We got a tour of the house after our stay to learn more about the history of the house and memorabilia inside it! If you're looking for a quiet place to stay just a 20 minute drive outside the city, then this is the place for you. Very interesting and historic place to stay! We cannot wait to come back in the fall!

Great place and wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We loved Oak Hill! It was a wonderful place for our three families to spend a week. We had plenty of room... much better than staying in a hotel. And the location was great, allowing us to easily drive in for softball games but also to escape for some downtime. We loved exploring the house and its history. Our stay allowed us an opportunity to experience Texas in a wonderful way-- the house, the awesome pool area, the wildlife, and the stars in the Texas sky.

I can't say enough about the hospitality shown to us by the owners. They truly outdid themselves when it came to answering our questions and being responsive. From making sure we had access to a washer and dryer to arranging extra trash pick ups... they did a great job in making us feel at home.

We had a wonderful time and will always remember this trip and our stay at the Plantation. If we come back to College Station, you will definitely find us at Oak Hill.

Great Property for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

This is our 6th year renting this house for our biannual leadership retreat, and it never disappoints. The house itself is so spacious which is awesome for groups of 14 like we have. The best part though is how serene and historic the property as a whole is. It is always such a relaxing weekend and just a 15 minute drive from Texas A&M!

Very unique location

  • 5 of 5

Really great house for a big group. Very unique location to stay for a gameday. We have stayed here twice when coming in for Aggie games and loved it both times. It's a little far from campus (20-30 minutes), but the house makes up for it. Fits lots of people and has a great backyard or pool area for cooking out/hanging out.

A Texas Gem for Any Occasion

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the simple beauty of the past in this Oak Hill Plantation. We celebrated my nephews graduation from ATM College Station, Whoop!. The home lend itself to everything we needed from space to furniture that could be staged for the event.

We had a great time in this plantation styled home that immersed us in Texas History. The rain didn't stop us from having a great time.

Also, the pool,dance deck area,and train caboose are outside extras that make the outside more interesting.

All in all a great place to rest, relax, enjoy, and celebrate.....Oak Hill plantation!
