This is our second time staying at the Blue Heron Inn. It's a fine B & B that is family owned. The rooms were simple and clean with a view of Mount St. Helens, which is a 45 minute drive away. The B & B was probably decorated in the 1980-1990's. So what? It was clean, neat and met our needs. Chris made a nice breakfast. They did some unusual things like putting orange slices in the store bought orange juice and sliced cucumber in the ice water. I'm a foodie and would suggest putting half the amounts in both. The fruit was day-old but certainly acceptable. I was a little concerned that there wouldn't be enough food. However, because the other couple didn't come to breakfast, we were fine.
There is a road nearby and traffic was using it until around midnight. After that, it was quiet and didn't start up again until around 7 a.m. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't absolutely quiet, either.
*FYI - no one associated with the B & B stays on the property overnight. This was a little unnerving to me the first time we stayed there. (I'm from the city...) However, we merely locked up. Chris was there early enough so it was not a big deal.
