Quiet Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The property is closed off and feels very private. It’s a charming old house... just missing doorknobs and locks (including the bathroom) but if your with family it would be okay. Also could use some more pots and pans but other than that it’s a great vacation with little ones.

Quaint, rustic Texas getaway

  • 3 of 5

Our family had the pleasure to stay for one week in this remote cabin. It was great for kids to enjoy the outdoors and to fish. While the fishing/catching was not great for the amount of time we fished, it was a great setting. In general the furniture and amenities were very good and it was a comfortable place to relax. We did arrive to no hot water, but found the property manager quite responsive. Unfortunately the owner was not as responsive and never did follow up to help us determine the issue. After no response, I decided to start investigating and discovered that the propane company had not turned the propane valve on, which meant I had to get the propane appliances (water heater and oven) set up to work. Although I never received any communication or apology from the owner, the manager dealt with the issue immediately and reimbursed the cost of our first 2 days (the time we were without hot water) for the inconvenience. A few things to consider when planning to stay here: 1) There are not enough pillows (unless you use throw pillows) for more than 3 people; 2) there are limited towels, so be sure to bring additional towels; 3) there is no internet and sparse cell phone connectivity; and 4) although rustic, none of the doors to the bedrooms or bathroom latch or close properly. In spite of these minor nuisances we truly enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I have spoken with the owner and there is no excuse for the propane being turned off. I am so sorry... I cannot say it enough, it was inexcusable. I advised him about your suggested furnishings and completely agree with you!

Nice & Rustic as expected.

  • 3 of 5

However, it was stated to sleep 6. But it actually slept 4. It was a nice place with nice furnishings. I didn't have huge expectations going in, but the sewer lines were messed up and we could not go on one side of the house because of the mess & smell.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your honest feedback. The septic backing up is a mess that no one wants to encounter! (the owner says the system has been repaired and it working wonderfully) We have no excuse for the missing queen air mattress and have asked the owners to replace it or we will change the advertising. We hope and pray that you will give us another opportunity to enjoy the peace and serenity that Gigem Getaway brings most guests. Best wishes sir, again thank you for your honest feedback...we strive to improve our properties and need that honesty!

Wonderful, peaceful out of the city cabin

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay in between selling and buying. Planned to stay a few months, but stayed for 12! It was fantastic. Owners are extremely nice, helpful and accommodating with all of our needs. He was always helpful with any questions we had. Would highly recommend this place! We enjoyed the wildlife and fishing. It was quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed eating and relaxing on the deck and walking the grounds.

Our favorite were the wild geese we watched set on eggs and raise goslings on the pond all summer.

We were about 15 minutes to College Station and a very easy drive for anything we needed.

You'll want to come back again and again!!

Country Living to the MAX

  • 5 of 5

Came down for school, stayed for 3 months. Just wonderful. No issues. Kitchen was excellent, everything we needed. All appliances worked. Washer and dryer was amazing. Showers were beautiful, inside and outside. Talk about living the life! BBQ did the job, propane was always full. Garbage day was always on point, Thursday mornings. It was just amazing. Backyard was the best, big deck, light fixtures, fans, and spot lights made it beautiful morning, and at night. The pond was awesome! Went fishing a few times, caught like 15 fish, mostly bass, a few big crappies. Fish tacos all day. Some evenings, you would see some wild boar, and some early mornings, you might spot a few doe's. Wildlife was all around, birds, owls, cranes, etc. We were about 15 minutes from College Station. Not a problem at all if you needed to go to the store or have a great evening. Just a straight shot. The owner was an amazing man, very busy guy but always stopped and said Hello. Anytime there was an issue, he was there for you. He had 3 dogs that always secured the land, so you would know if something was close. My favourite was when there was a rain storm, steel roof just made it perfect. Puts your mind at ease, and makes you wonder where you are! Texas. I would live there if I could, and I would totally recommend this place to anyone attending school (with a vehicle) or vacation. Price is right, out in the country, no traffic, no complaints, no hidden fees. I came here with my best friend, and we did great. Had people over for events, everyone loved it. Quiet, peaceful, just nature.
