About Tammy Martine

Mike and I have been married 30 years. We have a daughter and son in law that live in College Station , with two precious grand daughters and a grandson. Our son lives in Florida.

Mike grew up in this area(Hearne) and I grew up in Brownwood, Texas. We met working at Texas A&M

University and married that same year. We love people and have a desire to serve. Hospitality brings us both great joy. This new adventure of running a lodge has been loads of fun. We have met so many lovely people on their travels this past few years and look forward to the guest to come, hope you are one of them!

The beach and the mountains are two of our favorite places to visit. Our goal is to show you hospitality while you are visiting in our area.

Tammy Martine purchased this lodge in 1998

Why Tammy Martine chose College Station

We were riding in the country years ago, before we were able to move here, thinking how amazing the countryside made us feel.This land and property has brought our family and many others great peacefulness and lots of laughter. The indoors brings an atmosphere of rest and relaxation, along with the beautiful outdoor area that shows the glory of God.

What makes this lodge unique

Start your morning on the patio with a cup of coffee and the birds. The garden area allows an outdoor meditation time away from our busy lives. Be sure to pack a swimsuit for an evening under the stars in the hot tub. Sitting on the deck or in the front yard in the evenings as the sun sets is a great way to bring closure to your day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Written by Kathy in the guest book.

"Where do I start? We have had an amazing time at this fabulous haven! Everyday my husband said he was in his "breathing point" , where all cares were swept aside. The amenities of this cozy lodge are terrific- comfy seating, soothing beds, refreshing hot tub, inviting fireside and let's not forget that MASSAGE CHAIR! Our hosts were so warm and friendly, we cannot say thank you enough."

We are excited to return for a longer stay in 2018 and are so grateful to God , He led us to this place!

Sincerely Greg and Kathy

Great stay for Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend. The lodge was adorable, the gardens were beautiful. We came for our son's graduation, and had a little get together there. Tammy and Michael were very accommodating. They set up a canopy and sprayed for mosquitoes and filled the tiki torches before our party. It was so nice to have a place to hang out with the family. Wish we would have stayed there sooner. Thank you for helping to make our weekend memorable.

Peaceful Setting!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely place had a cozy cottage feel with all the amenities. The hosts are wonderful and very accomodating. The beds are comfy and the massage chair is a fabulous treat. Kitchen is well stocked. We loved the hot tub and fireplaces! Great value!

A Garden Gate Lodge was just what we needed for our Family Thanksgiving.

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge is out of town far enough to be quiet and peaceful, yet close enough for us to get to the Texas A & M football game easily and to our daughter's house very quickly. She has roommates, so having her come out to the Lodge to spend time with us was ideal, but if we needed to go to her place for things we may have forgotten, it was so handy. Our hosts thought of everything. So many little details were taken care of and provided in such good taste. We look forward to our next stay at A Garden Gate Lodge.

Very nice, quiet setting. Excellent location for game days. It is often difficult to "get out of town", but this location is the actual direction that traffic control sends you away from the stadium.

Pleasant snacks, breakfast foods and delightful massage chair. This last item will probably be on a Christmas Wish list!!

Adorable and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Garden Gate Lodge exceeded all our expectations. We decided that afternoon to rent the lodge and three hours later walked through the door. It was spic and span and packed with little goodies, like muffins and cake, water pitcher filled, milk, juice etc. The bed was very comfortable. I'd like to say I enjoyed the massage chair but between my husband and sons I never got a turn in it. I will say they loved it! With the peaceful setting, yet minutes from town it's the perfect location. We will be back!

quite, peaceful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as advertised. We all felt right at home soon as we walked in, fresh chocolate chip cookies on table, everything was great. The home is very nice, quite, peaceful, the perfect location right out side of town. We were in College Station for our daughters fastpitch softball tournament and wanted a quite place to relax and cool off between games. We really enjoyed our stay and the massage chair was pretty awesome too. If we ever get back down that way we will definitely stay here again. Owners, Tammie and Mike, are very friendly.

Thank you,

Chris, Dot, Karlie, and Hannah
