Guestbook comments from the manager

We made a road trip to College Station to visit Santa's Wonderland. We stayed at The Aggie Retreat for the weekend. We were very pleased with the home, the location, and the price! The deposit was returned in full and everything was exactly as described. The Aggie Retreat has hot showers and great water pressure! It is also clean and well equipped for cooking! It is very comfortable and there is plenty of room for 8!

Perfect for Aggie Football

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended for an Aggie football game! It’s a short, easy drive to the campus, but remote enough to get away from the commotion. If available, we hope to return next season. A two-thumbed Gig ‘em for the Aggie Retreat!

Clean, Cozy, kid friendly home

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to College Station for a weekend to tailgate with friends and family. This house was perfect for us. It was very clean. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking necessities for making breakfast. It was nice having access to park in the garage. We had an almost 2 year with us and the home was kid friendly. There wasn't much we had to worry about him getting into or hurting himself. We would stay here again!

Spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Aggie Retreat for 9 days during Hurricane Harvey. The home was well equipped with everything we needed for a home away from home. The kitchen was very well stocked, the beds were extremely comfortable, and it was obvious that the property owner put a lot of care into the home. The property owner was very responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend!
