Nestled in the middle of the Museum district, the Robin's Nest was a remarkable feast for the eyes both inside and out, as the grounds were as well maintained as the rooms. While the lack of 24/7 staff was somewhat disconcerting at first -- especially for after hours check-in -- it was quickly dispelled by their availability to answer any... More

My husband and I stayed here with our son when we were dropping him off at Rice University for orientation week. It is located near (within 1.5 miles) of the university, the Museum District and the Texas Medical Center, in one of the most pleasant parts of Houston. The B & B is beautiful and lush semi-tropical plants interlace the... More

The comfortable and welcoming Robin's Nest is very well-located (even for someone without a car) in a quiet, leafy neighborhood. A good bus line is just four blocks away, and museums, galleries, restaurants are all within easy walking distance. Robin, the owner, has an easy way about her, which was reflected in the details of my own room (comfortable couch,... More

I love B&Bs and this one was great! Everything here is a M-C original or the owner/artist has painted it herself to match! It is an overload of color/pattern but that's what I love. Robin and her staff were friendly and helpful; breakfast was not elaborate but delicious; our room upstairs in main house was huge and quiet. The house... More

I love old houses, it is hard to see the old with all of the paint and decor. After my initial shock, I started to appreciate the place. Beds were comfortable, place was quiet with only one other room rented during the week. I had a private bath with Cecilia's room, good shower and plumbing. They asked for special needs... More

I was recently in Houston with my best friend for a long, summer weekend. We stayed inside Beverly's Tree House- & it was perfect for our needs! The room is located upstairs in a brick building with a private entrance from a side street. The location is west of the lobby/breakfast area- at the end of the block with a... More

I am not, as a rule, a B&B person. The chaotic decorating, endless knickknack collection, ceramic cats … not my style. But I enjoyed my three day stay. It was the FULL - two ceramic cats in my room and a total of 29 knickknacks (I counted) - B&B experience but the rooms are large, the bed was firm and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the heads up. I am grateful for your feedback. I don't like too many nonessential items in a room either, especially in an 1890 Victorian. It reminds me of an old Hitchcock movie. Cats be damned, they'll have to spread out . . . and I'll take a hard look at everything else. Come back... More

Upon arrival at designated check-in time, nobody answered the locked door. We had to call and leave a voicemail and waited on the porch for about ten minutes. We received a call back and the owner asked if I was visiting with my sister. I was with my husband and our daughter for our five year anniversary and it appeared... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Robin's Nest consists of three houses setting side by side (The Big Nest, an 1890 Victorian Farm house; The Little Nest, a 1920s Craftsman, and the Third Nest, a 1938 Southern Saltbox), in Houston's Museum and Arts District, also called Montrose; adjacent to downtown Houston and the Texas Medical Center. We serve a full or continental breakfast. We were voted Audience Winner by Citisearch and best B & B in Houston by Houston Press. We welcome children and pets. The rules are the same: We ask that they be clean, groomed, pest free, and well behaved. Several suites are suitable for long term stays. Robin created Robin's Nest in 1990 after another Houston oil bust. There have been numerous articles on the Inn, among them The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Houston Post, Houston Chronicle, Texas Monthly, Southern Living, Houston Press. Come see us in the heart of Houston. You are welcome. ... more   less
