We stayed with my husband at the Grand Suite View and were very pleasantly surprised. The view is indeed awesone and the suite itself very spacious. I really liked the nice touch of having some basic stuff in the fridge for breakfast (but for European visitors would be nicer to have fresh bread and jam/butter than a tea or coffee... More

First of all, one needs to know that address 51 comes AFTER 61, not before. That makes finding the place much simpler. The view is fabulous. The atmosphere is fabulous. The banana nutbread is fabulous. Owner is friendly and accommodating. This is a great place for a short vacation.

I recently spent three days at Black Heron Inn and found it a good experience. I stayed in the Bay View Room which was clean and ready to occupy. Fresh fruit, loaves of fresh bread and continental breakfast items provided a start to the day and snacks along the way. The view was soothing, the nights silent and dark. I... More

We stayed at the Black Heron Inn two nights. When we woke up the first morning, we saw a green heron at the pond without having to step out the door. The Inn was comfortable, quiet and had an incredible view. The innkeepers provided us with soy mile and gluten free cookies for breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the... More

We spent 4 days at the Black Heron Inn so we could explore the wildlife of the nearby Point Reyes area - sure there was plenty of birds moving through on migration and we saw the start of the Grey Whale movement as well as the odd Racoon and Tule Elk as well as Californian Sealions and Elephant Seals.

This was our second time at Black Heron Inn, our first in the beautifully situated Grand View Suite. This was just what the doctor ordered -- a quiet mid-week stay in gorgeous surroundings. If you're looking for a more typical B&B experience, with shared meals and new best friends and chatty hosts, be aware that this is not for you.... More

A wonderful spot, comfortable accommodations, and great view just a minute or two from excellent restaurants in Point Reyes. Great place to base a Pt. Reyes birding outing. Especially liked the Black-crowned Night Heron rookery right on the property!

Just outside (north) of Pt Reyes Sta. a great first stop on the drive up the coast. Comfortable spaces with unobstructed views from the deck and dining area, it borders Tomales Bay Preserve. Walking trails steps away. Hosts are ready to assist or allow privacy. Convenient to everything Pt Reyes. We would stay again!

Very low key, nice room, close to everything and quiet. Not much service, breakfast is provided in the fridge upon coming-in. Had coffee, and a good selection of teas. Internet was slow, but hey you don't come here to browse, do you?

Our daughter got married in Point Reyes and we had never been there before. This Inn was quiet and off the main road. It was clean and had a nice view also. The decor is a bit dated, it could use some newer items throughout, but it was a pleasant stay! They provided some fresh fruit, 2 small breakfast breads... More
