My mother, sister and I wanted a one night getaway. We chose the Blue Heron Inn for the "Boathouse" experience. Our check in was smooth. The desk clerk escorted us to boathouse and showed us where breakfast would be served in the morning. The boathouse was clean. Part of the ceiling wallpaper was starting to peel and the carpet was old. The TV was not a flatscreen and it had a VCR. The room consisted of a queen bed and a sofa sleeper. The bathroom was very nice. It appeared to be newly remodeled. The boathouse has sliding glass doors that open up to the deck. The view was great. In the morning we looked out and saw 5 turtles swimming and many fish. It was a fun experience.
