Deb answered all of our questions promptly and thoroughly. She suggested activities fo rthe family and we extended our stay to include her suggestions. She made accomodations for our whole family to fit into a cabin room. She helped with bikes, planes, boats, kayaks and any other mode of transport. She loves her town and she shared her joy with...

Our stay at the Blue Heron was, by far, our best B&B experience. Deb is a marvelous hostess, cook, and tour guide. The cabin was gorgeous, well furnished and stocked, and had beautiful views. What I appreciated most was the care I received when I had a minor bicycling accident (entirely my own fault). Because Gustavus is such a small... More

We stayed in the Fireweed Cabin during our 4-night stay in Gustavus. It seemed to be the more private of the cabins since the porch overlooks a field of fireweed. Our cabin included in one large room, 2 queen beds, one chest of drawers, a small open closet and a kitchenette and table. The one chest of drawers is located... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Blue Heron at the beginning of September. From the moment she picked us up at the airport, to the time she dropped us off again(and sat with us while waiting for our plane) Deb took such wonderfully good care of us. We felt like we were visiting a longterm friend. This has... More

My girlfriend and I stayed with the Blue Heron last week and had an amazing time in Gustavus. If you're really looking to be one with nature and have a great small town experience, this is an amazing place to visit (and not just for the Glaciers). Deb the owner of the Blue Heron is really friendly and went out... More

It's hard to add anything to what has already been posted about a stay at the Blue Heron B&B - Deb will make sure you leave Gustavus with fond memories. Be sure to book all your activities with Deb as she knows the area, the guides and the daily counts on the tour boats - she helped us avoid a... More

We spent 7 nights at the Blue Heron and it felt like "home". Deb and her late husband, Charlie, built the guest house and cabins, along with their home which features a communal sunroom. Everything is immaculate and comfortable. The breakfasts are enormous and delicious. Such pampering!! We observed Deb working tirelessly to make arrangements for all of her guests,... More

This is a place you'll want to hang out! Gustavus is a pearl of a destination, and Deb Woodruff (Blue Heron's proprietor) made it even better. The property is both lovely and very, very comfortable. The breakfasts are large and truly delicious. Her fleet of bikes make getting around the area both fun and easy: both the boat dock and... More
