The view of the water was beautiful and peaceful. Carol was wonderful and helpful. She had menus for the various restaurants downstairs. Nothing on the island... More

We spent 3 wonderful, restful days and nights at the Blue Heron, which is run by Carol, her husband Bogden, and their dog Pulaski. The inn is very dog- (and child-) friendly, and has 2 rooms facing the water, and the larger, very private "Otter" room (where we stayed). Carol and Bogden are terrific hosts, and made us feel very... More

Stayed with my 3 dogs for 2 nights in the Otter room. Very comfortable bed in a room that was in the back of the house with a separate entrance. Carol, Bogden, and Pulaski were gracious hosts who went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Would stay there again for sure!

Great location, right on the water. We stayed in the Pelican room which was big enough for our family of 4. This was one of the few places that had one room big enough for all 4 of us. The location is about a 15 minute drive to Eastsound where there are lots of places to eat and shops. The... More

Moonlight on the water and a full moon! What a view outside the french doors and balcony. This B and B is as cute and cozy as it gets. The breakfasts were "ambrosia", delicious and varied. Snacks were served every afternoon and disappeared quickly. This B abd B has a beautiful setting, friendly, knowledgeable hosts, and is close to everything.... More

Our short stay at the Blue Heron was fantastic. Carol and Bogden are great people to talk to and very hospitable. The almond rocha and oatmeal cookies that were there when we arrived were delicious, we probably ate most of them. We stayed in the Egret room, where the view from the deck is nice and a good place to... More

If you have a dog, this is the place to stay! Even if you dont have a dog, this is the place to stay! Carol and Bogden are amazing hosts! They are right on the harbor. You can see the sea lions playing out your balcony. Upon arrival, you will receive a doggie basket complete with treats for your dog.... More
