We loved our two-day stay at the Black Heron Inn. The view was marvelous--a panorama of Tomales Bay, Pt. Reyes mountains and the Marshall hillsides. Bill and Mamie were wonderful hosts--gracious and welcoming without interrupting our restful stay. We chose the Grandview Suite for its wonderful view. A perfect choice! The room was huge, with a cozy loft bedroom, big... More

This is a real find. Beautiful views right in the park with birds, cows, bobcats and deer all around. Perfect location to get up and out in the preserve. It's simple- no daily cleaning and only a fridge. We thought we would have microwave so brought food but had to make do with the Coke stuff and left a bunch... More

Great area for scenic beauty. Room was very comfortable and in great location. It was clean, very quiet and better than photos for scenic beauty. Loved the national sea shore, historic lighthouse. Would stay again.

Setting was excellent, we had the Grand View room - a full kitchenette, etc and were highly impressed with the overall surroundings, quiet, and amenities. One of us stayed on the aerobed which was quite comfortable and large. For those who are sensitive to noise - the walls are thin, we were able to hear talking in the room next... More

We stayed for one night at the Black Heron in the Bayview room and wished we had more time. The setting is beautiful, the room was well appointed, with good choices for a continental breakfast and Mamie was very helpful with suggestions on how best to use our limited time in Point Reyes. We look forward to a return visit... More

My husband and I stayed at the Black Heron Inn at the end of September. We had a room on the first floor with a stunning view - I don't think we've ever had such a gorgeous view from a hotel room EVER. The room was clean and spacious. The person helping at the Inn that night brought us fresh... More

I almost hate to say how wonderful this place is because I want there to be availability the next time we want to stay there. Great view, plenty of room, peace and tranquility, easy access to walking trails and we didn't want to leave.

My wife and I stayed at the Black Heron Inn this past weekend and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. The rooms were very clean and all have a walk out to a balcony where you can sit and relax. It is only a 5 minute drive from Point Reyes Station. The only thing about... More

The location is lovely, the room clean and well provisioned as many have noted. We have stayed in countless B & B's in the US and Europe and this was the first time our hosts actively did not wish to meet us! We found it bizarre.
