Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying in the Fry's apartment. It was so spacious and perfect for our families needs. Their home and grounds were just beautiful. The neighborhood is just beautiful and quite a surprise tucked away in College Station. We enjoyed seeing all the music memorabilia in the apartment. Mrs. Fry went above and beyond to meet our needs! We are so glad to find this property.

Shady Estate

  • 5 of 5

This property is spacious with plenty of sitting room. This is nice if you have plans to entertain. There is a nice gazebo accessible for use which also makes a nice place to enjoy a meal or coffee in the morning.

Owners the Fry family live on the property in the main house. They made us feel very welcomed. Would acknowledge us with a wave, good morning whatever the case may have been. Would ask if anything was needed. This was done in a way one would not feel watched but welcomed. The Frys truly make you feel at home.

Shady Estates is within minutes of A&M campus. Making getting to each event we attended easy. Several restaurants are also located near by.

I would definitely stay again.

Great Place to gather!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for an Aggie Football weekend and found the Shady Estate to be a great place for our group to gather. The older folks stayed here while the young ones stayed with our Aggie, but we spent some of our free time all gathered together here with plenty of space to spread out. We found all the music related items to be fun and quirky. The owners helped us figure out where to park and were super friendly. Great location close to campus and many restaurants. Would recommend driving to these locations but they are walkable depending on where you want to go and how far you are willing to walk (we walked to the Northgate area in about an hour). In general comfortable place, not fancy, would stay here again if going BCS for the weekend.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay at Shady Estate. The location is great, very close to campus and convenient to other amenities in BCS. It is a gem tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, on several acres. It is very peaceful and relaxing. The accommodations are very spacious and well maintained - very comfortable. The owners are gracious and welcoming. We were delighted to discover their fondness for music - the decor in the living room was a wonderful surprise! I highly recommend this property for visitors to BCS, and for extended stays.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, and as advertised. Although only a 1br/1ba it has a huge living room and bedroom. We had a bunch of friends there for the A&M football game and weekend, and it was a great place to congregate. We would definitely stay there again!
