“Beautiful place--restful and very peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We were given a coupon for a bed and breakfast so went online to find someplace to use it. We wanted to be near Rexburg and this was the only B&B. We spent 3 perfectly wonderful days here celebrating our 50th anniversary. The setting is beautiful right on the south fork of the Snake River--we would sit outside and take walks beside the river and enjoyed the geese and eagles and just watching Nature. The beautiful log home was beyond words--so well decorated, clean, comfortable with lots of views of the river. The rooms were all decorated with themes and there were lots of things to so--books, games, movies theater in the basement, very peaceful music playing throughout--totally restful and relaxing. Most of our time we seemed to be alone in the whole place--made us really feel at home in our 'dream' log home. Sandy and Dennis were very helpful and mindful of our needs. And the breakfasts--what can I say?!! They were delicious, beautifully prepared and served, and very plentiful. We truly felt special with all this wonderful service, beautiful place, and the peace and relaxation we enjoyed. We would highly recommend Blue Heron Inn to everyone--and do hope to be able to return again some day.

My husband and I went for a weekend getaway and we were pleasantly surprised when we walked through the front doors. The Blue Heron Inn is absolutely beautiful! The atmosphere is so relaxing, comforting, and peaceful. It is the perfect place to go to leave the stresses of the world behind. You can’t get any closer to heaven than this! All the rooms are spacious, immaculately clean and inviting. You can walk out onto the back veranda and experience the gorgeous landscape that Idaho has to offer. Dennis and Sandy are amazing! They made us feel right at home and we were treated to a scrumptious breakfast! I miss being there already…Thank you Dennis & Sandy!

This is the second time we've stayed here! Hospitality is very nice. We stayed in the Carriage House because we brought our large dog with us. The Carriage House is the only building where pets are welcomed and our dog caused no problems and was a good time for a birthday get-away for my wife. The room was very clean and had plenty of views of the property and the adjoining Snake River. We have been to few other B&B's before but this is considered by us to be the best! We arrived Friday afternoon and left late Sunday morning. The breakfasts that we have were very large and filling. Saturday's Breakfast was Eggs Benedict. two large poached eggs with Canadian Bacon over homemade bread! Wonderful! Sunday's Breakfast was stuffed baked apples between two large homemade French Toast. Another wonderful meal! These breakfasts kept us filled till late afternoon. The Blue Heron Inn's living room has a baby grand piano and they allowed me to entertain everyone to my hearts content! Downstairs in the Media Room there is a pool table and a huge 120" TV screen for watching movies! We highly recommend the Blue Heron Inn to anyone wishing to be treated as almost royalty! Dennis & Sandy treated us as if we were the King & Queen of Siam! Wonderful place!

Room Tip: "Corner suites are large and sunny" and each have very large bathrooms & fireplaces! V...

Sandy and Dennis were very welcoming, we enjoyed our stay so much. They walk to the river was very close to the Inn. The place was very clean and not only do you get a breakfast but you get the Idaho experience. We will be returning. Thank you.

Room Tip: The Suite had a jetted tub perfect for couples.

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights. Absolutely wonderful experience at the Blue Heron Inn. Beautiful inside & outside. Pleasant, comfortable, and had everything I expected a B&B would have and more. The owners, Dennis & Sandy, were both helpful and friendly. We highly recommend the Blue Heron Inn.

My Wife And I were recently Married. My Brother and Grandparents went in on a room for our wedding night, luckily they booked us with the Blue Heron Inn. We got there to check in at 3 then returned for our evening of festivities for the reception. At around 9:30 we headed back from Idaho Falls. This wonderful bed and breakfast is tucked away just off the highway and right next to the Snake River. We could not ask for a better setting. The room was large and the fireplace really heated it up, even though it was in the negatives that night. The jacuzzi tub was very wonderful and My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves there. Now here comes the real kicker... Breakfast! The Innkeepers served a 3 course breakfast which I have never experienced in my whole life. We started out with hot freshly made scones, then came a large bowl of berries and cream, and to top it off we had stuffed french toast with hashbrowns. Never have I had a breakfast like this one, and I was very very pleased.

When we first got there my wife had mixed emotions she wanted to be up in the Destinations Inn, but after the wonderful experience we had here, and now we already have Valentine's Day booked!

Me and my wife stayed here for our honeymoon and it was amazing. I cannot say enough about this place. It was clean, beautiful views of the river, the owners cook the most delecable breakfast. We plan on staying here anytime we visit this region.
