The Blue Heron Inn was a wonderful experience. First of all it is in a beautiful location, the Suislaw river practically at the front door. The inn itself is so lovely and homey, you feel like you are staying with good friends, Maurice and Stella, your hosts, are most hospitable and gracious providing amenities not usually required. They are so... More

I have been staying at the Blue Heron once or twice a year since I stumbled on it in about 2009. Maurice and Stella are like family now, and my visits with them are a highlight of my trips to Florence! The breakfasts are incredible, scenery is awesome, and the rooms are wonderful, with character, space, and plenty of amenities.... More

We were welcomed with open arms.We were shown round, where to find tea and coffee should we want any at a later time.We were then shown to our room, which was quite lovely. After we had settled in, and had come downstairs we were told... More

We were comfortable in the Blue Heron Inn. It's not in the heart of Florence, but close enough not to be a problem. Maurice and Stella welcomed us and gave lots of good advice on places to eat and see. The room we had was spacious and the breakfasts were excellent. The hosts were willing to accommodate our eating requests... More

My husband and I recently spent two very comfortable nights here. We were in the Heron room which is very nicely decorated - and from the other rooms I caught sight of, it is the nicest. Stairs however are steep and narrow so be prepared to carry luggage with some difficulty. Maurice greeted us at the door on our arrival.... More

The house and the room were beautifully decorated and furnished. The location is peaceful, but beware, it is almost 3.5 miles drive from historic downtown Florence. The breakfast was very good and out-of-the-ordinary. Maurice is a genial host (Stella was not permitted to get much of word in) but, by the time we had heard all the rules, regulations and... More

My daughter and I stayed here for the third time ... and each time it just gets better. Maurice and Stella couldn't be more friendly or helpful, the rooms are beautiful and well appointed, and the breakfast was gourmet. The location is a bit outside of the main town, and enjoys a beautiful view of the river. When we come... More

Perfect location off hwy. 101. Rooms are clean and private. Host/hostess made us feel right at home, offering whatevere needed. We came in late and we offered a drink that was much appreciated. Breakfast was amazing! We really could not have asked for more.
