This inn is very quaint and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! The staff was exceptionally helpful, courteous, and friendly. The room exceeded our expectations and served all of our needs. The view of the lake was great too, especially at sunset! The adjoining restaurant had atmosphere, good food, and reasonable prices. They even provide chocolate chip cookies to their... More

We were driving from the west coast to the east and as it got late one night passing through Indiana we decided to stop in La Porte. All the chains were sold out but we came across the Blue Heron Inn. Very courteous reception, very reasonable price to a large, clean suite and a great breakfast. Real scrambled eggs (with... More

We absolutely loved our 2nd floor king suite with jacuzzi and beautiful views of the lake. There was a small balcony where we could watch the sun set over the small but pristine lake. Just off I-80/90 and if you're anywhere near LaPorte you should visit. We dined at T-Bones which is right at the Inn. We enjoyed everything about... More

I loved the idea of being on a floating cabin on a lake! We stayed on the 4th of July so the atmosphere was great and the fireworks show that some homeowner did (we watched from the park next to the cabins) put our city fireworks display to shame! You could also see the fireworks from the fair grounds in... More

My wife and I live in the suburbs of Chicago. A friend recommended this hotel, so we ventured out last Saturday for a one night mini vacation. What a wonderful relaxing time. The hotel is located directly on Pine Lake, was well maintained and clean. There is a pool, attached restaurant / bar and a brand new tiki bar on... More

The Blue Heron is a very nice, friendly hotel. It has 2 floors but no elevator. They offer breakfast in the morning. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, large beds and I mean high off the ground. If you are short bring a stool....I'm 5'3" and I had a hard time getting on the bed.... More

I saw a piece about the inn in the Indiana visitors' guide, so I booked a floating boat house. It was so relaxing -- I had only planned to stay for 3 nights, but I booked a 4th because I didn't want to leave! I felt the motion of the waves, especially the second night when some storms went through,... More

This Inn is the best Inn that I have stayed in my entire life! The people there are so incredibly kind, they give you free cookies and coffee when you come in and they are just so nice and thoughtful. They allow dogs there so if you need to take your pooch somewhere, this place is definitely it! Right outside... More

We ended up here by chance (good luck) when we were trying to find a vacant room to stay for the night during our road trip. Lady at the front desk was extremely helpful and nice. She even gave a tour of the two available rooms to me, and a second tour for my parents five minutes later. This review... More
