Recently my husband and I stayed here for two nights. Our main goal was to be close to the mountain and enjoy an attractive looking B&B. Our experience far exceeded our expectations. Our host was welcoming and gave us the grand tour, which was impressive. The property was actually designed as an inn, with seven private rooms and several lovely... More

We needed a place to stay overnight after visiting Mt. St. Helens area, so were fortunate to find this B&B along the way (we were supposed to stay at Eco Park Lodge, which closed without our knowledge). We were the only guests on that one night, and had the entire place to ourselves. The place is extraordinary with nice French/European... More

First, google "Blue Heron Chateau" for bookings - there's also a website for Blue Heron Inn, but nobody responds to requests from that website. The inn is pricey, but well located for Mt. St. Helen's, with big, clean rooms and a good breakfast. The operators seemed a little bemused by the whole process of taking guests but this didn't affect... More

My experience was very similar to the others at the beginning but that's where it ends. I also had placed a deposit with "Chris". Upon learning at my arrival the Inn had been sold at auction, I took the time to discover the circumstances as I was losing my deposit and preferred to be correctly informed as to my options....

Be aware that there are new owners here and they claim to have no record of previous reservations. There are not a lot of places to stay in the Mt. St. Helen's area and we reserved a few months before our visit. Fortunately we decided to stop by to drop off our luggage in the morning and the new owner... More

First off let me just say that I think this place has been hit hard by the down turn in the world economy. The owners seem genuine people but they have other jobs and trying to make this place pay as a going concern looks like a mill stone around their necks. The view from the rooms is fantastic. Right...

This is our second time staying at the Blue Heron Inn. It's a fine B & B that is family owned. The rooms were simple and clean with a view of Mount St. Helens, which is a 45 minute drive away. The B & B was probably decorated in the 1980-1990's. So what? It was clean, neat and met our... More

If you’re looking for a place to stay after spending the day at Mount St. Helens, the Blue Heron is the smart choice. Don’t book your stay with the expectation you are staying at a historic or luxurious B&B, because the Blue Heron is neither. But, it does offer a great panoramic view of Mount St. Helens, balconied rooms that... More

Dealing with this "inn" is like dealing with a hotel from the mid-1970's. I called to make a reservation (you can't reserve online), and when they could not timely get me a written confirmation of the reservation (after all, I was traveling across the country with 2 children, and wanting confirmation of the reservation is not unusual), I called and...
