“Just what a B&B stay should be - comfortable, home-like, and gracious”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

The rooms are creatively decorated and very comfortable, thoughtfully appointed, and quiet. Breakfast was fantastic - fresh fruit, blueberry coffee cake, eggs Benedict, juice, and coffee or tea. The hosts were very friendly, gracious, and considerate in every way.

My wife and I stayed in the master suite on July 3rd, 2010 and were absolutely blown away by how nice this place is. The views from the private back porch is unbelievable. I would recommend this place to anyone. The breakfast consisting of stuffed french toast was to die for!

We spent one night at the Blue Heron Inn on our way to Yellowstone; great location (albeit away from nighttime entertainment, if that's what you are looking for...); we had a wonderful restful night. The place is spectacularly beautiful, the owners friendly and at the same time very professional. Great attention to detail. Some families there with smaller children enjoyed the game room and local wildlife watching. Great home-cooked full breakfast.

What a treat to find the Blue Heron Inn. Claudia and Dave are wonderful innkeepers. Our stay felt like being welcomed in the home of dear friends who made sure all was perfect then stepped away so we could enjoy as if our own. Bob even caught a 15" Rainbow trout on the river out back. A whole moon rose reflected in the river into our room each night as we fell asleep. Best stay of our 4 week "40th Anniversary Road Trip" to the west from Cincinnati. We will be back!!!

hosts were gracious and extremely helpful. food was outstanding. we asked for french toast, and they provided a banana/walnut/foster type of toast. scrumptious! the inn is purpose built and furnished with lovely pieces. handmade quilts and fabric artwork abound. would give this a huge recommend!

On our return to Montana to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, my wife and I had the pleasure of spending a night at the elegant Blue Heron Inn, just outside of Rigby, Idaho. The Inn is located on the banks of the scenic Snake River with a deck overlooking a good stretch of the crystal clear waters. The stunning architecture of the Inn, the friendliness of the Innkeepers, Dave and Claudia Kingler, and the overall ambiance created an experience which far exceeded our expectations. In the morning Dave and Claudia prepared a sumptious, gourmet breakfast which surpassed our experiences with other top rated B&B's. This relaxing, beautiful Inn is recommended for anyone who wants to jump off the rat race for a day or two, or three, and kick back to smell the roses. The rooms are very reasonably priced and it brings tears to my eyes to compare the value with what I would've had to pay for just a so-so room in New York, Los Angeles, or any other big city. Go, treat yourself to the pleasures of the Blue Heron. You'll be glad you did.
