Mt-Nest Bed and Breakfast is close to great birding, with wildlife areas close at hand. Sit in the back yard and watch the Green Jays, Great Kiskadee, Orioles and the Tricolored Herons. You’ll love the location. It's a quiet country setting great for relaxing, bird watching, star gazing, sitting around the fire ring or just unwinding. Just a short drive away you can enjoy several locally owned restaurants. We welcome couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and small groups.
Your room is located at the end of the guest wing with easy access from the parking area. You'll have views of the large back yard and meandering herd in the back pasture. There is a separate living room for our guest use with a mini fridge and microwave. Separate entrance as well as parking area.
Guests are invited to wander around the property. Stroll along the canal located along the property and watch for Great Blue Heron, Tricolored Heron, Snowy Egrets and Ringed Kingfisher. Or bring your fishing license and test your luck at catching a fish or two. Lil Bit, our resident donkey, loves to have her head scratched when you walk along the pasture fence. Two hammock chairs await you in the back yard for a bit of relaxing and just letting the world go by.
We respect our guest privacy. During your stay we will only come into the wing for housekeeping needs.
We are south of Harlingen and an easy drive from the airport. Things to see and do in the area include: Harlingen Downtown with it's murals and antiques stores. The Valley Greyhound Park is just up the road with live racing during part of the year. Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival is the first Wed - Sunday of November. Marine Military Academy and the original mold for the Iwo Jima Monument are well worth a tour. Just a short trip away is South Padre Island and Sea Turtle Rescue. Head the opposite direction and visit our Outlet Mall in Mercedes.
