Above and Beyond all Expectations !

We decided to treat ourselves during the A&M graduation weekend by staying at the Rudder-Jessup B&B. We could not have been happier with our decision. The food was amazing, Jennifer's Room met all of our needs and George and Hillary could not have been more welcoming and helpful during our stay. When a group of us returned to the house for an impromptu graduation celebration, George provided cheese, crackers and wine to get the party started. This B&B should be your first choice for any College Station stay.

Loved this B&B!

We recently stayed at this B&B and it was wonderful! The owners were out of town, but an innkeeper named Ivan was there to greet us and help us with everything. It was very clean and homey, and very conveniently located right by school. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we will be back!

Fantastic Stay!!

We just stayed this wekend and what a wonderful experience. My daughter's sorority closed for spring break and Hillary was more than accommodating, allowing her to stay with us and feel welcome. We just visited Ireland this summer and stayed inincredible B&Bs throughout the country and Rudder Jessup compared and exceeded all of them. We will be back and I will reccommend this B&B at my next Aggie mom meeting!!! Thanks for a great getaway Theresa

I am so grateful for the hospitality offered by George and Hillary when we traveled from Virginia to College Station, TX to take our son to Texas A&M! Everything about the B&B was perfect and we really loved our time chatting with them as they shared stories about their life, their family and their wonderful memories of Texas A&M. I know they will be there for my son Patrick since we're many miles away and that's an extra comfort you'll never get from an ordinary hotel. I look forward to our next stay at the Rudder Jessup B&B!

Everything is awesome!

The owners were out of town during our stay but Jessie took great care of us! Everything detail is taken care of so we did not have to worry about anything. The bed was comfdortable with different types of pillow firmness. The breakfasts were so delicious. We were totally spoiled. What a great bed and breakfast!

Very enjoyable stay!

My wife and I decided to try a b&b versus the same old thing at a chain hotel on our trip to Aggieland to pick up our daughter. What a great choice we made! Rudder Jessup B&B owners, George and Hillary, are fantastic! From the moment we arrived to the time we boarded our vehicle to go home, we were treated like family! VERY comfortable, clean and quiet room (Jennifer's room). George and Hillary also provided an excellent full breakfast and great stories! We will definitely be staying at the Rudder Jessup B&B in the future!

The Rudder Jessup B&B has made visiting Aggieland even more special for our family. George and Hilary welcomed us as if we were favorite relatives, and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The home is stunning and full of interesting A&M memorabilia. And I've been craving the delicious lemon chiffon pancakes ever since!

Rudder Jessup B&B - AggieLand Weekend

This B&B was lovely; and our host, George (his wife was out of town at the time), was wonderful. The atmosphere was pleasant, homey and very relaxed. The accomodations were clean and beautiful and the bed and bedding were extremely comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous! I will definitely stay here again should we make another visit to A&M.
