About the property

Lovely And Elegantly Appointed 4 Bedroom, Boutique Hotel Style Accommodations.


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 (and 6 month depending on season). River Valley Vacation Rentals owns this and other guest homes in the Brazos Valley. We work hard at this business every day and want to earn your repeat business.

About Lori Walker

Hi Travelers! My name is Lori Walker. I am the broker-owner of River Valley Realty and River Valley Vacation Rentals in College Station. Originally from the Gulf Coast, I have lived in the Brazos Valley since 1980, continuing on as a resident after graduating from Texas A&M University! We operate a portfolio of furnished guest homes/corporate rentals/game day rentals in here and we take pride in providing exceptional, immaculate housing to our guests. Our homes are all fully appointed and tastefully designed and maintained offering guests clean, convenient, comfortable housing for their short term needs.

Lori Walker purchased this house in 2006

Why Lori Walker chose Eastmark

If you are looking for short term housing near Texas A&M, shopping and parks, this home is ideal for you. It is unique in that it is in the central area of College Station but newer construction and up to date. The shuttle bus stops at both ends of this street if you are going to campus or games. Wolf Pen Creek Park and Amphiteather is located at the end of the street, offering live music venues, walking and jogging, or frisbee!

What makes this house unique

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! I own River Valley Vacation Rentals and we own several guest homes in the area. It is a business for us and we strive to be the best! We love repeat business!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know that your place made us feel at home. It is a beautiful home and the perfect place to hang out with friends after a game!

Why would you pay for a cramped hotel room when you could relax in a spacious, larger accommodation with full kitchen and secure garage parking with remote control? And it's almost impossible to house 8-10 people comfortably in a hotel.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Found this charming cottage in great condition, so clean and welcoming. Was the perfect place to commemorate our daughter getting her Aggie ring. After a happy day of celebrating we were exhausted and slept like babies in very comfortable beds. We didn't want for anything, except maybe to have stayed for more than one night as it would be a great place to just relax. The owner was very communicative and accommodating.

Clean, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our stay in Aggieland! We had 6 adults and 3 teenagers. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and not feel cramped while we were visiting. The home was very clean, well equipped with all necessities. Will stay again and recommend to friends or family!

Warm and Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at this home! We were in the middle of the move and Lori let us rent the place out for the entire month. With our personal items still tied up in the move, it was nice to be able to utilize this fully furnished house! The extra space was great for our family. The kitchen was stocked with all tools and dishes you could need! The house is located in a cul-de-sac so there wasn't much traffic. Great proximity to town. It's also a block away from Wolf Pen Creek, a nice area to walk and excercise.

Very spacious property

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious. Large living room, three nice size bedrooms, and a big master bedroom with an awesome master bath. The property is located just a few miles from the A&M campus. Had a great parents weekend.

Howdy! College Station is the home of Texas A&M University, a world class institution known for it's high moral character, excellent education, and loyalty and camaraderie among it's former and current student populations.

The highly successful 2012 football season and Heisman winning QB have brought the world's attention to this middle sized metropolis. We, the Twelfth Man, welcome you!
