My boyfriend and I booked a whitewater rafting trip at Crabapple for the day and searched online for a nice bed and breakfast to stay. I found a $10 off our stay on since we were rafting with Crabapple on their website and they didn't hesitate to honor that which was great. Since my boyfriend and I don't get a lot of time together with our busy schedules, a peaceful, romantic night was definitely in order. I stumbled upon Bird's Nest B&B and didn't realize booking a room here would be the best decision we could make all weekend. There are so many things I loved about our stay that I'm not quite sure where to start exactly. Pat was so accomodating. Since we didn't make our 3:00 check in because our whitewater rafting trip didn't end until 7, we showed up late and Pat came greeting us at the door. She set up zucchini brownies and some beautiful teacups with all varities of tea on the table on the screened porch. It was so relaxing sipping hot tea, eating the delicious brownies, listening to the nearby brook. We stayed in the Goldfinch Room and enjoyed our room very much, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The bathroom (which is a shared bathroom) was very clean and had everything we need to make our stay comfortable. Although we were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves, which was an added bonus. In the morning we woke up to a beautiful display of orange juice, tea, a fruit cup, and last but absolutely not least the bird's nest omelet. There aren't enough words to describe how delicious and fresh everything was. Most ingredients were from their vegetable and herb garden. It was exquisite. Cyndy kindly shared her recipe with me, although I know I won't be able to make it nearly as good as she did. Pat and Cyndy came out after we ate our meal and chatted with us about this and that. I felt like we were hanging out with some old family friends that we haven't seen in a while. They told us about some hiking trails and other activities for us to do in the area before we left. I'm glad we were able to talk to them because the Bridge of Flowers, not far from there, was absolutely beautiful and I've never seen anything like it. Before we set off for our hiking and exploring adventure, Pat sent us away with a bag full of goodies and a smile on our faces. My boyfriend and I were looking for a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere for us to reconnect after a very busy summer and at the Bird's Nest, that is what were able to do. We are eager to come back here and make more memories with some wonderful people at an amazing B&B.
