My husband and I usually go to a great B&B in San Antonio for our anniversary but this year we decided to head to Austin and try something new. I should have gone with my gut when it took them almost a week to confirm our reservation. Upon arrival I felt that the lady checking us in was frazzled and that she was rushing us to get our motorcycle untrailered and settled in. After that we were taken up to the Western Room that per the web site boasted beautiful views of the lake. All we seen were trees; enough trees that even if the lake wasn't 50 feet down we still wouldn't have been able to see it. The room itself smelled a little musty and didn't have its own have its own thermostat to control the temperature, so it was slightly on the warm side. While tastefully decorated when I put our carry-on sized suitcase on the bed it visibly sagged in the middle, I would highly suggest support slats under the box springs! We were told that breakfast would be served around 9-9:30 when it finally arrived after 10 it was cold and wasn't very appetizing (scrambled eggs are not suppose to be runny). After choking down "brunch" we did the tourist thing for a couple of hours to return to a room that hadn't been freshened up (bed remade, garbage taken out, that kind of thing) and the fresh towels were left in a dirty chair on the deck by the room door. So very disappointed in the whole Robin's Nest experience, especially for the rate!! How this place was voted best b&b on lake Travis is beyond me... My guess is all the others have folded with the decline of the lake and they got the title by default. Will not ever stay with them again and would not recommend to anyone either!!
