we stayed in the walrus room for two nights. its tiny, but the website said it would be! we enjoyed the skylight (though small) and the view from the tiny balcony.breakfast was good, though very carb-heavy, and our hosts were very nice. we loved the location right on the west sound! great deal for what they charge!

We stayed at the Blue Heron this past weekend. When picking a room I saw that one had a sky light and chose that room. Honestly, it was TINY! LOL I'm 6'3" tall and it is a very small room. Super comfy bed, bathroom is across the hall. (Knew that from the web site description.) Kept bumping my head on... More

We stayed here this winter for a night and didn't feel like getting out of the room at all. We stayed in the Pelican Room which has a balcony with a nice romantic setting with a view of the harbor and night sky. This is one of those stays where the reality outlives the photos posted. The room was very... More

After being closed for renovations, we were thrilled to have such a nice couple on our opening day! These are the kind of folks that make having a B&B so fun! More

We found out about the Blue Heron from researching Trip Advisor for B&B's on Orcas, since coming from Florida we had no idea what was good and what wasn't. We fortunately hit the right one - it was perfect. We showed up from the ferry late afternoon on a rainy day and Bogden was there to greet us and show... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast in the cozy Walrus Room. The room came with a private balcony overlooking the harbor and sitting on the balcony with coffee (or wine) was a nice, relaxing way to begin and end each day. Carol and Bogdan were wonderful hosts and truly accommodating. I didn't bring... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Otter room which is toward the back of the house and you get to the room from an outside door, so it is very private. Since this room is on the main floor and backs up to the kitchen we did hear a little noise in the mornings but nothing overly loud. The room... More

My husband, son, his fiancee and their sweet but anxious large rescue dog stayed here in early August. The event was a good friend's wedding- which required that we leave the anxious dog at the B and B. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. As well, our rooms were comfortable and breakfasts very good. If you're looking for a... More

Reminiscent of staying at my grandmother's farmhouse. Inn would benefit from updating. Perhaps we expected more as the two other B&Bs we stayed at in the islands were top notch. Room was clean, which was a definite plus. Mattress in need of replacement, linens far from luxurious. Breakfast very, very basic, not up to par with what we've experienced at... More

We stayed in the tiny but lovely Walrus room. Everything was perfect and clean and comfortable. The private full bathroom across the hall included shampoo, soap, and a hair dryer. The side balcony offered a great view of West Sound. Breakfast both mornings was amazing: migas on Saturday and Dutch babies on Sunday, along with fruit, granola, English muffins, and... More

The Blue Heron B&B is a fantastic place to stay if you're craving a friendly and mellow environment. With regards to location, the Blue Heron is 10-15 min away from the main town on Orcas, East Sound, and is just minutes away from the ferry terminal, making its placement very convenient. The view of the West Sound Marina is phenomenal... More
