A true (vacation) home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage by the pool could never disappoint! I traveled to College Station, along with my elderly mother, for a family reunion in Navasota. I wanted the trip to be easy on my mom so that we could focus on the various family events scheduled. Beth has created a true haven -- beautifully appointed with fresh linens, lovely decor, and a kitchen that allowed us to make our own meals on a regular basis. Add to that, a swim in the pool just steps from our door each evening -- this oasis gave us all the privacy we required, Beth and Kyle were consummate hosts, and our stay could not have gone better even though there was a heat wave at the time! As a vrbo owner myself, I can confidently say that this prize in Bryan, College Station, Texas is a great example of what happens when we take pride in our properties and joy in sharing them! Thanks for making our stay so memorable, Beth and Kyle!

Hidden gem

Stayed here 2 nights while moving our daughter into her college home. This quiet & relaxing place had everything we needed plus a hot tub! Loved the history of the main house! The host were very accommodating. Loved it and we'll be back!

Incredible Cottage & Great Texas Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

I was on the road traveling to several college campuses doing recruitment for our firm. We were staying in several Comfort Suites throughout Texas and got the opportunity to stay at this cottage for two days. It was a great time for my colleagues and I to relax from our grind on the road. There was a great pool we were able to enjoy and had our fridge pre-stocked with some waters and juices. We will be staying here again for when we come back through College Station for recruitment. Thank you for a great stay!

The PERFECT place to stay while in Bryan/College Station (for work or for fun!)

  • 5 of 5

Can't even begin to describe the hospitality and quality of people that Beth and Kyle are! This place is a real gem, and SO CLOSE to everything you need while in Bryan College Station. I was in town for work for three days and decided that a "Hampton Inn" really didn't sound all that inviting...when I found this spot, I was not only pleasantly surprised but it exceeding so many expectations.

To begin, the cottage is located perfectly at the divide of Bryan College Station with easy access to the local highways and main roads, and only a couple minutes from Texas A&M University. Beth and Kyle are top-notch hosts with such fun personalities - you will feel like you've known them forever!

The cottage is quaint and a perfect size - fully equipped with a kitchen, washer/dryer, large screen flat TV, and a King size bed. The cottage is also separate from the main residential quarters (which is a BEAUTIFUL large house in the historic district of Bryan Texas), so you truly feel as if you have all the privacy you need.

The best part happens to be the outdoor shower! If you haven't had the opourtunity to take a shower outdoors in privacy, you will be thankful you did. After a dip in the saltwater pool or hot tub, you can relax on the back patio reading a book, and finish your night with a hot shower outdoors.

I've stayed at many hotels in College Station - and there aren't any that are as nice & comfortable as this cottage. You will honestly feel like you are in your own home with the coziness that this place brings.

Even though I stayed here for a few days during work, there is no doubt in my mind that I'll be back on Game Day! Thank you Beth and Kyle for your impeccable Texas hospitality!
