Stayed here for a brief overnight en route to Yellowstone from Salt Lake City. Could not have been more impressed with the property and lodging. I had the Bunkhouse room, which was very comfortable. Breakfast was ready the following morning, and amazing! Pristine location literally right on the banks of the Snake River. I highly recommend and my only regret... More

This is beautiful B&B with a convenient location for visiting Idaho Falls as well as about a 2 hour drive to Yellowstone. The owners are warm and welcoming. Breakfast is delicious. Wildlife frequents the property and there is an awesome view of the Snake River which runs beside the property.

This was an anniversary trip and was beyond our expectation. The property and the setting were off the chart beautiful. The hosts, Dennis and Sandy, were exceptional as was their staff; friendly and hospitable to the extreme. The breakfasts were five star and the rooms were all clean, unique and beautiful in their own way- we wanted to try them... More

The Blue Heron Inn in Rigby is a great place to stay, rest and unwind. Quiet, but also love the sounds of the trains occasionally coming through, and the river in front. Plus a killer breakfast! Super luxury for the price too. They should also be with airbag..

My fiancee and I booked the Blue Heron for one night during a cross country trip with our small dog. The building and grounds were lovely and the setting was amazing, but we weren't able to enjoy anything about this place because of how poorly we were treated for bringing our dog. This place is advertised on hotels.com as being... More

This is more of a large B&B than an Inn. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and the room clean and comfortable. The setting for the inn could not be more beautiful. Even though a main thoroughfare runs near the house, the backyard seemed so private and quiet with a wonderful view of the Snake River. It is a place... More

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms in this beautiful log Inn. Our room was comfortable. The grounds were lovely...right on the Snake River. We enjoyed sitting on the lawn with a glass of wine in the evening. Our hostess prepared delicious breakfasts for us and had suggestions of things to do and restaurants to go to.

Sandy and Dennis have a wonderful B&B--the place was obviously built to be just that. Even though it is close to Route 20, the rooms are absolutely quiet--you hear no road noise and no noise from other guests. This is a great place for an extended stay because there are so many nooks and crannies and wonderful seating areas--you can... More

We stayed here as a mini vacation for 3 nights and 4 days. We loved it! The homemade breakfast was made by the owners themselves and it hit the spot each time. It was a very comfortable place. We did hit the hot tub each night under the stars. We saw lots of wildlife, to include a momma moose and... More

We just loved the Blue Heron, the building was lovely with nice gardens to walk in and close to the river. Our room had a small balcony, which was great to sit on and watch the sunset over the river. Everywhere is nicely decorated and there are plenty of places to sit and read quietly if you wanted to. The... More
