The Robin’s Nest Bed and Breakfast

Now this is what I call a Bed and Breakfast! (Robin's Nest Bed & Breakfast) We were welcomed by the spunky and energetic Mrs. Robin (thus the name of the B&B). She showed us around the house, and then up the stairs to our room named “The Blue Jay Room.” 
The Blue Jay Room was HUGE! Queen sized bed, with a Christmas tree to the right. And OMG the bathroom was a dream. A huge clawfoot tube was the central focus, with beautiful hardwood floors and charming décor. 
The B&B overlooks downtown Mount Holly.  We had to stay in Mount Holly, as McAdenville (the place we were visiting for the Christmas lights) was a residential neighborhood with no hotels.   Mount Holly is about 10 minutes away, which was perfect!
So here we go, the pros and cons of our experience at the Robin’s Nest Bed & Breakfast:
·         The breakfast was AMAZING! Moist quiche, with homemade banana loaf, fresh fruit with yogurt, sausage patty, coffee and orange juice.
·         24/7 Coffee! Thank god for the 24/7 coffee (plus to-go cups!)
·         The Blue Jay Room was beautiful and big
·         The innkeeper was extremely nice, and easily accessible
·         Afternoon snacks were left out to munch on throughout the night
·         Small and quaint
·         Location was perfect to McAdenville
·         The Clawfoot Tub in the Blue Jay Room (for those who love to take nice long relaxing baths)
·         Train passing in the morning. Although this is not the B&B’s fault – the train is an inconvenience for those who like to sleep in
·         No bottled water available (at least what we could see)

Michael and I definitely want to come back to the Robin’s Nest as there were tons of other places to explore close to Mount Holly.
