Robin's Nest Bed and Breakfast on Lake Travis

1010 Stewart Cove , Austin, TX 78734 USA (Show map)


Lake Travis is 60 miles long. Our adorable "fishing cabins" are lakefront properties, preserved between multi-million dollar homes. From the decks, you can hear the chimes of the masts from nearby sailboats.

5.0 star rating 4/1/2016 I found Robin's nest strictly by accident. and what a divine accident it turned out to be. I am in Texas from Florida to complete a travel nurse assignment the hospital I worked at was 5 miles from home. I stayed in studio B for 3 months with my yorkie in tow. Robin, Bubba, Traci, and Don are very welcoming. They took us in and made us feel more like family than quests. The view of the lake the sound of the masts on the sail boats next door all the animals and wonderful eclectic whirly gigs and general stuff Robin adorns this place make it one of the most peaceful places on earth. I will definitely remember my time here fondly. I Love this place and the people here simply are the best!

Spontaneous Get away

We were thrilled that Robin accomodated our short notice get away. She was very pleasant and thoughtful. The room was fabulous and we woke to the birds surrounding us. Hope Lake Travis comes back soon. Lovely spot.

Gr8 B&B in Austin!!

My wife and I fell in love with this quaint bed and breakfast back in 2012. Since then we've stayed there at least 10 times. Robin and her staff work hard to make your stay enjoyable... and we highly recommend that check it out if you're needing a quite place to get away from it all.

surprise on the 4th of july!!!

Wow, what a gr8 time at Robin's Nest. I highly recommend this place!!!! First, the Manager was terrific! Ramona was absolutelly the best! On the phone she was friendly, and helpful with the reservation, it seemed like we knew eachother for years.... at the end of the call i was actually excited to meet her, Robin and the staff. Also the place sounded beautiful. Next, we arrive in Austin and i called her and she checked our reservation, oh no! Over booked in a room. No problem, Ramona worked her magic and found us another room, a bit smaller and the bathroom was tight, but she gave us a free night and it was well worth the down size.... after all, there was too much to do in Texas!!! 3rd, we were going to 3 nights of music at the 'Back yard' so we arrived at the 'Nest' after mid nite, no problem there either, she gave us directions to the right house, they have 3, and left the door open for our secret arrival by1 am. In the morning, breakfast was very good, the portions could have been bigger, but i eat alot. the Gardens were in great shape, since im a professional landscaper, i know! Also the Bonsai patio was impressive, done by Robins husband. We found great food and a natural cold springs 'krauss springs' i think. At the end of the 2nd night of shows, we unfortunatly had a flat tire.... a small mid-nite inconvenience, but the spare worked. No worries though, Ramona to the rescue again!!! she found us a great place to repair it... Anyways, i would return there again, hopefully sooner than later! Robin and the whole staff were wonderful!!!! Thanks, Robins Nest. James

Wonderful experience

We stayed in Biscuit's Room for two nights and enjoyed every moment. The property is beautiful, the staff is very attentive and the breakfast was delightful! We will definitely stay again soon! Ivan C.

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary and my husbands birthday. We stayed in the tower room and it was lovely! We had our own private bathroom and it was very clean and up to date. Breakfast in the morning was amazing!!! My husband keeps talking about the eggs, but I loved the pancakes! :) We will definitely return to the robins nest. I love seeing people so happy to be doing what they are doing! Very refreshing.

Great times at Robin's Nest Bed & Breakfast

I stayed in two different rooms during my stays at Robin's Nest. When you drive up you just feel the love of the place. Robin, the owner, will do anything she can to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. The rooms were both clean and everything I was looking for in a relaxing, peaceful stay. If you are looking for the Hilton, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, great food, pleasant people and staff that will do everything they can to make your stay pleasant well then, this is the place!!!!! I have nothing but wonderful things to say and am looking forward to my next stay there.

Very Relaxing

This place far exceeded any of my expectations and was the most relaxing and beautiful place to spend a weekend. You will get a great feeling of being at home with the family and yet get that get away feel that you love. Spending 3 nights here is not nearly enough to really enjoy what this place has to offer. Great views and great location. Not far from great restaurants and great locations.

Most wonderful place

This b&b combines wonderful rooms, awesome service, cleanliness, friendliness and the great nature around lake Travis. My husband and I enjoyed our stay more than any stay at a hotel or other b&b ever before. We will definitely come back to experience more of the unique rooms. The staff was extraordinarily friendly and fun!
