We had stayed here before and were so impressed, we stayed again. This time we not only had several members of our family stay but had them host our son's wedding reception. GREAT choice! Salmon was prepared perfectly, service and atmosphere excellent! Our son and his new bride very much enjoyed their stay. Breakfast definitely a step above local hotels...

Had a one night get a way trip to the Blue Heron and everything was terrific. Grounds are beautiful and immaculately maintained. Can't imagine the hours that go into that. Sitting on the balcony listening to the river while reading a book was just what we wanted for a restful evening. Breakfast was great and friendliness of the inn keepers...

Beautiful B&B about 10 miles south of Rexburg. We stayed in the upstairs King Suite with Balcony. Gracious inn keepers. Great Breakfast included French toast, muffin, fresh fruit with yogurt and more... Would have enjoyed some bacon but still great. Wide selection of beverages in fridge and snacks in room. Grounds and inn well maintain and beautiful setting overlooking snake...

A welcoming home, everything one could need. Beautiful location on the Snake River. Enjoyed watching the fishing boats/fishermen float down the river from the rear deck. Delicious breakfast. Grounds kept in pristine condition. We would return.

If you want an idyllic country inn this is the place to stay. It is close enough to Yellowstone to stay while visiting there but it is so much more quiet and restful than the places right by the park. The lodge is exquisite, with extreme attention to detail--right down to the choice of book on the bedside table and...

This place is a real treasure. The house is beautiful. The rooms are all themed and beautifully decorated and really comfy beds. There is a gorgeous sitting room full of character. There is even calming music playing (if you don't fancy playing the piano). The grounds are stunning. There is even a cinema room and library/games room. Breakfast is delicious...

Our family flew from Virginia to Salt Lake City to begin a Yellowstone/Grand Teton adventure and we were reluctant to drive the entire 5+ hours to Yellowstone once landing in SLC - but also wanted to get some distance behind us. I found the Blue Heron Inn here on Tripadvisor and decided to book based on the reviews. And we're...

We really enjoyed our stay at Blue Heron Inn in June! Our accommodations were great! The Koffel's were a great host and breakfast each morning was wonderful! Their advice on what to see in the area was great. We went up to Mesa Falls on our visit and really enjoyed the beauty around the Falls.

The view of the river from the room is amazing and peaceful. I stayed in the Mallard room, which has a door to a small porch with an area to sit and enjoy the view. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good with fruit, an omelet, choice of juices, and coffee. The house is beautiful, and is...

The Blue Heron B&B is a picture perfect place from its location to the "attention to details" everywhere. The landscaping is beautiful, the Snake River is memorizing, the rooms have everything that you may need and the breakfasts are scrumptuous. We must say that out of the numerous B&B's that we have stayed at, the Blue Heron is one of...
