About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Located less than a mile from downtown Bryan and just a few more from Texas A&M University, our home is perfect for game and event weekends as well as stays during the week. We recently renovated home and it is bright and open. We have two bedrooms with queen beds. The TV room has a pull out couch and an extra large 8ft sofa, and the living room also has a couch. All together, 8 people can sleep very comfortably.

We are a kid-friendly home and neighborhood. All wall outlets are covered, and we have a pack-n-play for anyone who needs it. We are also less than a block from Sue Haswell Park which has a nice playground, tennis courts, horse shoe courts, basketball courts, and pavilions that can be used for large gatherings and events.

About Jane Sherman

I grew up in College Station and moved around the country before settling back in the area a few years back with my husband and two young kids. I am an artist, and love hanging out at the cafes and galleries in downtown Bryan. I mainly paint with oil, and as I am surrounded by kiddos, they are my muse and I find myself painting portraits and scenes that capture their innocence. But then, I look up, and where else is the sky as big and inspiring as the one we have here.

My husband and I stayed at HomeAway guest houses before have enjoyed our experiences. We find staying at a home is so much more comfortable than a hotel. We now have the opportunity to provide others the same hospitality, and we hope we will be able do it well.

Jane Sherman purchased this house in 2013

Why Jane Sherman chose Texas Lakes

When we bought the house in 2013, we realized we needed to renovate the whole house. I was pregnant at the time, and so it was a labor of love to make this home the home we wanted for our new family. We opened up the floor plan, added windows and tried to make this place cozy and welcoming.

Now we have two kiddos, we need a larger space, but we didn't want to sell this house because we love it so much. So we thought we would try to turn it into a guest house. This way, we can share it with other people and use it ourselves when we need it.

What makes this house unique

This is our home, and we want this place to be our guests' home away from home. When we bought this house, our top criteria were, close to downtown, close to a park, and neighbors that you can talk to. We saw the potential with the front and back porches and a remodel to make it our own.

great stay and great value

  • 5 of 5

The House is in great condition, it's not too far from campus and North Gate. When compared to hotels on a game weekend, you can't beat the price. Went with two couples total and there was room for more with the pull out bed. Will definitely be coming back next year.

everything expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit couldn't have been any better!! The owner kept in great contact prior to our arrival making sure our arrival would be a smooth one. The home itself is very lovely, charming and CLEAN. Even with the home being a 2 bedroom our 8 people had plenty of room to spread out and with the 2 living spaces it made the house even roomier. We rented for an Aggie game (gig 'em) and though not walking distance it was an easy drive and were there within mins. We found the home to be conveniently located near stores, restaurants and fast food for those after yell practice icecream runs. The owner made us feel very welcomed and even had extra supplies for those pre teens who did not pack their toothbrushes. We also were greeted by some staples of the house like fruit, eggs, milk etc. (what a huge help and greatly appreciated) I know our party WILL stay again. I give this property 5 stars for location, comfort, cleanliness and details/pride the owners put into the house and our stay.
