My husband and I were spending the day in Yellowstone and needed a place to stay on the way back to SLC. I called in the morning and they had a room left. We arrived quite late because we got side tracked on the way by moose that I HAD to photograph. There was a nice note on the door... More

I wanted to live there. Beautiful western log and stone home with all the amenities in a perfect river front setting. Fall trip allowed us to have the door to our private porch over looking the Snake river, open most of the time. Quiet. Did not hear the nearby highway at all. Huge breakfast. World class fly-fishing nearby. Very helpful... More

A friend and I were traveling to West Yellowstone and found this B & B on the internet. What a lovely surprise. It is a beautiful setting, a lovely home, and a wonderful breakfast. I really enjoyed visiting with Dennis and Sandy and would highly recommend this inn for travelers!!! Weta Phillips

This is the second time we've stayed at the Blue Heron Inn, and it certainly won't be the last. The setting is picturesque, and the inn itself is clean, comfortable, and really beautiful. I sat on the back porch, read a book, and enjoyed the view of the Snake River, while my husband took a nap. It's close to Idaho... More

Delightful, all around! The accommodations were very nice, the main lodge felt like a beautiful home that I was visiting, and the breakfast was outstanding. Great place to get away, enjoy some nature and serenity, and dip in the hot tub on the back porch!

Unlike many travelers to this inn, we were not going to Yellowstone - we were headed from Missoula to the Craters of the Moon and on to Sun Valley. I looked long and hard for a place close to Craters that would be more than a roadside motel. I am not a hotel snob, but I do like a level... More

We didn't spend much time here, but it was time well spent. We arrived after dark, our room view was nothing but stars. How lovely to wake up to the beautiful view we couldn't see in the dark! Our room was spacious and lovely. Bathroom was spacious as well and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed lovely conversation... More

This place is something of a paradox. The grounds are immaculate. The buildings are beautiful. The setting is idyllic. But there's this one thing...... It sits on a bend of the Snake River. In the morning, the sun reflected into our room with a peaceful ambiance. The grounds are large and manicured. The main lodge is as close to perfect... More

I work for a very high end brand of resorts and let me be the first to say this place is great. The property is beautiful. The people are as friendly as they come and truly treat you like family when you are staying with them. I felt like more than a guest but like someone who has been here... More

My daughter and I stopped here the night before she started school at BYUI. This place is exactly what a B&B should be..welcoming, comfortable, immaculate. Every tiny detail was perfect. Unlimited soft drinks and snacks. A beautiful back deck with a river running by. A movie theater room with DVDs perfectly organized. Big leather couches by a fireplace.
