Great B&B experience. Excellent food and accommodation. Friendly, helpful staff. Short walk to funky shops and a wonderful seaside walkway. Good level biking area. Really enjoyed touring the local floral fields.

My boyfriend and I stayed 1 night in La Connor and to our surprise the Inn ended up being more of a B&B, which neither of us had experienced before. My boyfriend had booked the place and he reserved a queen suite with a Jacuzzi and it was very cute. we were on the top floor and had a corner... More

My mom, sister-in-law, her sister and I stayed 3 nights. Wonderful breakfast, comfortable rooms, great staff, lovely setting and 1/2 block to a GREAT restaurant. Easy walking distance to waterfront if able bodied. Only reason I would not go back if is mom is with me, it is getting harder for her to walk up stair and the Inn does... More

The best in LaConner. We wouldn't stay anywhere else! A great location within walking distance of all the stores and restaurants. No need to go out for breakfast as you will receive a home cooked tasty one right when you wake up. They owners have thought of everything to make your stay the best. Would highly recommend The Heron Inn... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful B&B. Our room had the biggest jacuzzi I've ever been in - it fits two adults side by side! It was also in a lovely location in the cute town of La Conner. We loved walking down to the little shops and restaurants along the river. We came for the Tulip festival, and... More

I've stayed at The Heron Inn twice now since I've attended an art show at the Gail Harker school in La Conner. This time we made it for tulip time - gorgeous. The inn is quiet, very comfortable and has a great breakfast. Well worth it. I haven't taken advantage of the spa treatments yet - maybe next time.

Thank you for your review. A number of Gail Harker artists have been staying at the Heron practically since we opened four years ago. I have been to every Gail Harker art exhibit. The work you do at Gail Harker is stunning and you are all such lovely creative people. You are all an inspiration and a delight. Thank you... More

I stayed solo at the Inn last summer for two days as a short weekend to weekday retreat. The location was a bit more remote than I had expected but easy to find off the GPS. Check-in was painless and friendly. Accommodations in the Standard Queen Room were fine and just right for a solo traveler. Noise level was ok... More

Thank you for your review. I hope you get time to see the waterfront 4 blocks from the Heron next time you come. It is chocked full of art galleries, restaurants, clothing and specialty shops. I found more beautiful scarves in that 4 blocks of La Conner than all of Rome's shopping district (where I spent a day looking for... More

My husband and I stayed in the Romantic Couple Suite for 1 night in mid March. I'd never been to La Conner before and had always wanted to check out the little town. I had a job interview in about 10 days so was looking at some R&R to keep my stress level down and to help me focus. Prior... More

Did you get to see MeerKerk Garden? 75-acre natural woods setting with paths running through it and 150 varieties of Rhododendrons and Azalea's that bloom (usually) April-mid June. As you know, Meerkerk's bloom is early this year so my mid April it's going to... More

In my two night stay I never saw/met a manager/owner/greeter, which is usually a positive feature of a B & B.. My room was very clean and quiet, but it was also very small without a desk or a chair. I'd suggest you request a larger room with more amenities, which I was expecting. The bed was very comfy, but... More

Cozy, quaint, absolutely lovely place. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day stay. Very clean & quiet. Serene. Conveniently located within the walking distance to the main street. The service provided was impeccable, the staff were very amiable, accommodating and most importantly, attentive to our needs and satisfaction while respecting privacy. The breakfasts were pure homey delicacy. We had one-hour couple's massage +... More
