About

Ten guest rooms/suites. All fabrics are custom sewn specifically for us. The Inn is painted in warm colors, appealing textures and original designs; hand muraled or stenciled. Valuable antiques are mixed with vintage, and new, pieces. Our breakfasts are front and center. Fresh, imaginative, colorful (at least three colors besides brown and white), some organics with vegetables, fruits and protein. We cater to vegan, vegetarian, as well as the breakfasts our grandparents used to make before they headed to the fields to work until dark. Please advise in advance if you have a specific dietary need. We've been written up in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine, Woman's Day, Southern Living, Texas Highways, Outsmart Magazine, etc. The Inn has been the backdrop for several professional photo shoots, including M.D. Andersen's Christmas Cards.

Cecelia's Room

Cecelia's Room is soft but determined with red English Toile fabrics hand sewn by Robin for this room. The floors are the now-rare Longleaf Pine. The walls are MacArthur Park Green. The bathroom carries through with a red silk check. Cecelia's Room is on the second floor. It faces east so you get morning sun; however, the English toile drapes are beautifully lined so you can close out the light if you wish. There are five windows, a queen bed plus a twin or day bed should you need it. The room can sleep three comfortably.

  • Maximum Capacity: 3
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 Queen , 1 Twin

Antonio's Room

Antonio's Room is a strikingly handsome bedroom, upstairs, with a queen-sized bed, private bath and charming kitchen. The fabrics and window art are rich, warm and bold, for the avant garde Victorian in all of us! There's a coffee/tea station just outside your door. Check in time is After 1 p.m. and Check out time is 11:00 AM. 10' ceilings, original, rare, Longleaf Pine hardwood floors. A good room for writing poetry, I think.

Aunt Mae's Room

Aunt Mae's Room: an artist's space with a color wash on the walls and exterior Bermuda green shutters over the five windows.

Ruth Ann's Room

Ruth Ann's Room is the only room downstairs which renders it somewhat isolated. Because it's the only guest room downstairs your space de facto extends to the sun room, the parlor and the dining room. If you are a light or late sleeper another room may be better, however, as we serve breakfast from 7 - 9 a.m. If it doesn't bother you, it doesn't bother us. The bathroom is a good size, with tub and shower inclusive, a muraled shade tree and a giraffe to keep you company. Check in time is After 1 p.m. and Check out time is 11:00 AM.

  • Maximum Capacity: 3
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 Queen , 1 Twin

Nightly Rate: $159 - $169

Barbara Joyce's Room

Bold, warm colors. If you're planning to pop the question or close a business deal, this is the room that will give your adrenalin an extra drop or two.

It's especially private because it's detached from the main house. It's in the second house (c.1920) called "The little Nest", toward the back of the property. A queen bed, original art, a French pedestal table for an intimate chat, which Robin brought back from Paris: or, if you must, work. A shower for one, or a deep whirlpool for two, or just you after a long day and before that oh, so comfortable, bed.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 Queen

Nightly Rate: $169 - $179

Will go back!

5 on February 18, 2014

I am not familiar with the area so I was very worried about booking but we stayed valentines night. It was wonderful, they looked up resturaunts in our area and where they were. It was very private and romantic! And breakfast was different but absolutely fabulous ¿¿


Quirky charm

4.0 on February 12, 2014

Great breakfast, funky fun decor. It's a real anti-hotel and that is meant in a good way.


I loved Robin's Nest

5 on January 08, 2014

Wonderful place in a nice neighbourhood, near Houston's "gay-village". Friendly, wonderful owners. My stay was short, but I loved it and will stay there again, should I make it to Houston again.


Very Nice place to stay

4.8 on November 24, 2013

Innkeeper Response
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are most appreciative. I noticed that you gave us five stars on everything except the rooms and you gave us a four. I appreciate that. It renews my priority to go through the rooms one by one and rethink, as needed. Thanks again, Robin, Robin's Nest


Robin is the Greatest

Heard it was great. It was better than expected. A very nice experience.


Robin's Nest Bed and Breakfast Inn

4.4 on October 23, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It is the perfect place for a romantic get away. Robin and the staff are so friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious! We are considering going back for an in-city vacation for our whole family.


Beautiful place to stay

3.8 on October 21, 2013

It was a very beautiful and peaceful place although the little nest was smaller than I thought was described. It's in a beautiful neighborhood. I would recommend bringing some sort of personal insect spray since there were bees and Mosquitos everywhere.


NRPA Conference

5 on October 14, 2013

The place was very clean and in a great location. I would highly recommend the 3rd nest to anyone wishing to stay in the Museum District. It's only 3 miles from the Convention Center, so we took advantage of the B-Cycle rental program (there's a station as close as 2 blocks from the 3rd Nest) to commute to and from the conference.


Great place to stay and enjoy Houston away from traffic and crowds.

4.2 on October 13, 2013

The apartments are spacious and cozy, clean and comfortable. We enjoy the neighborhood and the easy access to restaurants, museums, and stores without the cars and noise. Definitely recommend Robin's Nest.


Wonderful place to spend the night!

4.8 on October 09, 2013

Quaint house makes a lovely bed and breakfast. The staff is charming and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious. (Bacon, eggs, sausage and a great fresh fruit salad, think healthy not greasy spoon.) I would definitely recommend the whole experience and look forward to staying there again.
