“Delightful Inn”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

So many interesting details in this Inn, from handmade quilts to antler chandeliers. Very artistic food presentations and excellent coffee from very cheerful innkeepers. Couldn't wait to see what the next breakfast would bring.

Beautiful rooms, super clean, gorgeous food and great hosts... I really enjoyed the time I spent at the Blue Heron and would come again anytime! It was a restful and charming inn with delicious breakfasts and lovely grounds.

Why is this the best B&B of my life? Blue Heron Inn is the most relaxing B&B I've ever been to... the great room was amazing, being on the river, sitting on the deck - so much peace and "ahhh" all in one place... We were truly the most comfortable and relaxed we've ever been at a B&B. I must stay place if you're in the area... and do not miss out on Yellowstone Bear World only one exit away!

Room Tip: The three upper suites have their own private balconies...

We recently spent our honeymoon night at the Blue Heron Inn. The suite was nicely appointed--a very spacious bathroom, comfortable bed, and wonderful deck view of the Snake River. The hosts, Dave and Claudia, were most gracious and availed themselves even though we arrived late that evening. Breakfast was wonderful. The stay at the Blue Heron capped a wonderful day and was the perfect setting to starting our lives together.

Among best B&Bs we have stayed in. The house and location are beautiful, along the Snake River with the mountains in the distance. We stayed 3 nights and were delighted with the accomodations and the warmth and hospitality of Dave and Claudia. Each of our 3 breakfasts was different and of gourmet quality, and with picture perfect, first class presentation. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed 2 nights on our way to Yellowstone and couldn't have been happier. The house was very comfortable with a gorgeous view of the Snake River from the back deck. Dave and Claudia were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The gave us great suggestions for a day trip. The breakfasts were fantastic. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Dave and Claudia Klingler make you feel like you are visiting them at home not at an B&B. The rooms are clean and well appointed and the views from the main room, breakfast room, porches and grounds of the Snake river and its abundant wildlife are spectacular. Claudia and Dave combine considerable culinary talent to produce a varied offering of breakfast fare appropriate to the diet considerations of the guests and designed to carry you to lunch with no snacking required. We use this property to recovery amid relative luxury from a week of trail riding and find the hot tub, relaxing walks by the river and hospitality just what we need.

Room Tip: The variety of rooms is sufficient to meet many different needs but we like the Bunkhouse best.
