Part of the reason that we came to this part of Georgia was seeing the website for the Blue Heron Inn, its location and beautiful rooms. We were not disappointed - Jan and Bill are great hosts first and foremost. The Inn is wonderfully situated in the marshes around the Golden

This is one of the loveliest places we have stayed at. It is in a secluded spot overlooking a marsh full of birds and beautiful vistas. At breakfast we watched two Painted Buntings just outside the window. Bill and Jan are wonderful hosts. There isn't a thing they overlook.

Blue Heron is a comfortable inn/bed and breakfast (great breakfasts) with views of the Georgia coastal marsh, abundant flowers, and many birds, including Great Blue Herons. Jan and Bill are wonderful and interesting hosts, full of information about where to go and what to see.

Our two day stay at the Blue Heron Inn, a charming bed and breakfast, was a true delight. We loved that the home was situated down several Darien, Georgia blue highways and nestled right in the marshes of coastal Georgia. The abundance of bird feeders and live plants on the

So very sorry you were disappointed but am assuming the complaint is of the Trip Advisor site? As the property booked clearly states on my website and anywhere else it is posted VRBO, AirBnB etc., "Private cottage at the Oaks of Eden. Set among towering live oaks this cottage is like a fairy tail escape nestled in lush ferns, palmettoes and live oaks. Queen bed, bath with shower, full kitchen, flat screen TV and a sitting area with a pullout sofa bed. Private porch with a grill and bicycles. Follow the path to the observation deck to gaze over marsh and tidal creeks. This a self catering unit....." Breakfast is provided only for guests staying at the B&B. Guests are always sent an email with links to local restaurants and interesting places to visit and explore. My reservation system sent you a map of the location of the property. I provided the address.There is a map in the cottage with most every retail entity marked on it including 2 grocery stores. I am always available to answer questions of guests staying in our vacation homes, condos and cottages as well as at our B&B. You mentioned on arrival that you thought you were staying on Saint Simons Island. I am so very sorry there was confusion about this. I understand sometimes when you book through a third party like Trip Advisor or Expedia instead of directly with a business it can be confusing. If I had something available on Saint Simons I would have been happy to accommodate you there. Unfortunately my properties on SSI were booked as was our B&B. In the age of conglomerate booking engines it is wise to click on "check property website" or check on the map usually provided for a location before booking so one knows what and where they are booking.

Oh My! For some reason I am just seeing this. We love pets, unfortunately our pet does not tolerate other dogs on her property. For this reason we have gone with a no pet policy at the inn. We do have a number of vacation rental homes and a small cottage that do permit pets.
