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

We stayed at the Blue Heron last week. The Inn is beautiful and the setting is spectacular. The room was wonderful and included everything you could possibly want. Breakfast was delicious. The inn is perfect.

When you enter the grounds, the place is immaculate, Walking thorough the front door and seeing the view of the River behind was beautiful. Dennis and Sandi were on top of their game with service. the breakfast was wonderful and would most certainly stay there or recommend them to anyone.

We stopped on our way back to Salt Lake City from Yellowstone. The facilities are first rate, beautiful; location on a river, large lawns, beautiful grounds, wildlife; quiet, peaceful; and a excellent, fancy breakfast. We think they should charge more than they do.

This was our first time at the Blue Heron and we were very pleased with the stay. Dennis and Sandra were excellent hosts, and helped us find local restaurants, as well as provided clear directions to our next destination. The whole lodge had a very welcoming, comfortable feel; and our room was very tastefully done. A great overall lodging experience,... More
