The room was very clean & housekeeping did a great job of tidying things up while we were out so they didn't bother us. The view is so beautiful & relaxing its the perfect place to unwind & recharge.... More

The Blue Heron is one of our favorite places to stay. We have booked for this year and looking forward to enjoying the room and the view of the lake. The free breakfast is like no other. They also provide homemade cookies for the guest. It is a quiet homey atmosphere.

My wife and I love the Blue Heron. The location is great, we have enjoyed all four seasons and had a great time on the lake. Rooms are great, the food at TBones is great and we've even made friends with the staff. It's just a great get away.

I stayed here for a getaway. I enjoyed the view and the staff. I would recommend it again! I just needed time to myself to unwind. My only complaint was breakfast was not very tasty but the view from my houseboat was breathtaking. I think if I do this again I will choose the boat on the end for a... More

We chose to stay on the bigger size house boat because we had our grandchildren with us. It was a lot of fun and a very unique experience. YES, the house boat does rock so get prepared to be awaken at around 6:00 in the morning when the fisherman start the morning out with their quest to find the biggest... More

I booked a surprise wedding anniversary trip for my husband and I to the beautifully tranquil Blue Heron Inn. We had gotten the Lakeview whirlpool room and were quite pleased. The front desk clerk was happy to show us around the property and when we made it to our room we were happy to see that updates had been made... More

We've spent several nights over the years in LaPorte because it is a good stopping point on our road trips across I-80. Usually have stayed at the very mediocre (but ok) Holiday Inn across the street. A waitress at T-bones restaurant gave us a tip about the Blue Heron. Glad we stayed here on our return trip. The hotel is... More

We had a fortunate experience as walk-in, no reservation, after stopping at one chain and trying to book at another. No standard doubles available, but we had a choice of discounted suites on the lake, chose quiet main floor unit next to pool. Night clerk was wonderfully helpful. Good internet, good restaurant dinner specials on site, seating on the water... More
