Recently my wife an opportunity to go to the Blue Heron inn. I had purchased a package through Living Social. Based on the info furnished this sounded like a wonderful getaway. Upon talking to Jan ( one of the owners) I felt very welcome and looked forward to meeting her. Upon our arrival we were rreeted by Jan, Bill and Nancy. Immediately we felt like we were visiting old friends. The pictures online did not do this property justice. The house is very homey with coastal decorations. Our room (Shell Room) was very neat and roomy with the quaint feeling of going back in time. Outside our room on the patio were all sort of beautiful flowers, plants, pineapple plants (with real pineapple growing on them). The view was breath taking, you could see miles of coastal marsh, water canals and all sorts of birds (both large and small). This location is very near the ferry that goes over to Sapelo Island. A trip to Sapelo Island is a must if you are in this area, it takes you back to a time with out all of the modern conveniences. It was cool and rainy the day we went to Sapelo Island, upon our return to the Inn we were met with a cosy fire in the fire place. And guess what? It was cocktail hour and Bill had beer and wine waiting for us. This location offers kayaking, bird watching and a wonderful place to just walk and enjoy nature. We were not able to kayak due to the weather but we left with an invitation to return and claim our kayak trip. Our two night stay was too short. Oh, I almost forgot the best part, BREAKFAST! It was like being in a five star restaurant. The dishes were not only beautiful ( in presentation) but delicious. Mama sure didn't cook like that! On the morning of our departure we felt as if we were leaving family.
