“Romantic and Beautiful!”
Reviewed February 25, 2010

My husband and I visited the Blue Heron for the 2nd time and it was even better than our first stay. The innkeepers make you feel right at home, the Inn and the views are just stunning and we had great massages! The breakfast in the morning was definitely a highlight!! A fabulous romantic getaway!

We stay in B&Bs as often as possible when we travel and know a great place when we stay there! The inn itself is open and spacious and decorated with wildlife photos taken by innkeeper Dave and quilts made by his wife Claudia. They are locals and know the area and are willing to make suggestions and recommendations for places to eat, things to see, etc. The location on the Snake River is very scenic and it is not uncommon to spot wildlife such as an eagle or even a moose. And if you don't see one there, Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks aren't far away. Finally, you won't be disappointed with the breakfast - one of the reasons to stay in a B&B in the first place!

We loved everything about the Blue Heron Inn. The atmosphere, the views of the Snake River, the Blue Heron Suite, the breakfast, the hospitality... everything! We are looking forward to staying there again.

What a unique gem! Claudia and Dave make the place all it is. They helped us remember what "relaxed" is. The food is excellent, the rooms spotless and filled with art and quilts. We had the biggest room with the fireplace and jetted tub and we never wanted to leave. (Alas we are back in Denver.) Caught 8 fish in a day. Heaven.

I stayed at this wonderfully located Inn for only one night. I wish I could have stayed more. The Blue Heron is located in one of the most beautiful spots in Eastern Idaho - on the South Fork of the Snake River. The scenery is also benefitted by the occasional visit by wildlife on the river including moose, deer, fox and even bald eagles. The vistas are incredible, especially at dawn. If you need a place to reset, this is the place.

The hosts, David and Claudia prepared our stay with a personal touch. David, a renowned photographer, encapsulates his love for the outdoors in the ornate and beautifully adorned Inn. Claudia, also lends her personal touch by providing a warm decor and interior design. Her quilts are especially beautiful and elegant. Bring your camera, you are going to need it.

Being a fly fisherman, I couldn't help but notice the absolutely incrediible fishing just outside the back door with cutthroat and brown trout surfacing regularly within eyeshot of our back window. The outfitters are professional and pick you up at the Inn for an incredible guided trip down the river.

This is by far, South East Idaho's hidden treasure. If you want to avoid the crowds, and the commercial fishing pressure, this is the place.

We've stayed at a number of bed and breakfasts--but this is BY FAR the nicest! The common areas are much larger than at most B & B's with gorgeous, but very comfortable furnishings, lighting, and other decor. The house looks out over the Snake River with lots of wildlife and the owner even provided binoculars to fully enjoy the view! The food was delicious and well-presented and every aspect of our room and bath were perfect. Thank you!

One of the best B&Bs we've stayed at. Claudia and Dave have created a beautiful retreat with wonderful views of the South Fork of the Snake River. They both love to cook and treat you to gourmet breakfasts with fresh fruit from their orchard or nearby farms, homemade breads, pastries and preserves, and hot entrees that will impress any foodie. Don't forget to take time to enjoy Claudia's award-winning quilts and the wonderful architectural details of this exemplary inn.
