We were very impressed at our arrival. The inn is beautiful, the rooms are tastefully decorated and so comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic. We enjoyed complimentary beverages. There were so many things to enjoy that we didn't leave the inn once we arrived. We enjoyed billiards, the hot tub, scenic walks, and also had access to a library, exercise room games and movies. the innkeepers are amazingly friendly and willing to accommodate. We will be back. . Thanks again Dave & Claudia

I really enjoyed my stay at the Blue Heron Inn. The proprieters were very friendly and the breakfast was more than delicious. The setting is beautiful around the inn. I would definitely stay there again!

The home is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside...a designers dream with gorgeous views of the Snake River and mountains. Claudia is an excellent chef as well as creative. Make sure to look at her handmade quilts. Our friends had never stayed in a B n B...I told them that they were going to be spoiled for any other. If you are anywhere near Rigby, ID make certain to stop for a few nights here. There is so much room as well as a big porch overlooking the river. Big comfy sofas and chairs adorn the vaulted great room.

The location of the Blue Heron Inn on the banks of the Snake River north of Rigby, Idaho is one of the more striking features of this elegant bed & breakfast inn. My friend and I stayed at the Blue Heron for three nights in late August, and we enjoyed watching the moon rise over the Teton Range while soaking in the Blue Heron's hot tub. We also sat on the deck outside our rooms and watched fishermen patiently casting into the waters of the Snake. When we managed to tear ourselves away from the comforts of the Blue Heron, we traveled via Teton Pass to Jackson Hole or turned north to explore the mountainous beauty of the countryside along the Henry Fork of the Snake River. We even visited Yellowstone Bear World, a very nice wildlife preserve that is close to the Blue Heron. No matter how much traveling we did, we were always happy to return to the Blue Heron and our beautifully decorated, comfortable rooms. Dave and Claudia Klingler, owners of the Blue Heron Inn, provide a warm welcome to their B&B guests and strive to make everyone comfortable. Claudia is an excellent cook and provided a gourmet breakfast each of the mornings that we stayed at the Blue Heron. These delicious morning meals were enhanced by the lovely light-filled room in which breakfast was served. Beautiful art work, quilts, and other decorations are present throughout the Blue Heron, and there are cozy areas (for example, a small library) where one can sit and read as well as a pool table in the basement. The location of the Blue Heron is a bit further from the national parks than I normally would have chosen, but the location is so beautiful that I found I did not mind the lengthy drive to and from Grand Teton National Park. I would highly recommend the Blue Heron to my friends and colleagues.

It will be worth your while to visit the "Blue Heron Inn." The innkeepers are delightful, as well as the beautiful and tranquil setting. The inn sits on the Snake River and is located in such a natural setting , that we were able to observe a family of deer in the foreground. The food was extremely unique and on the level of 1-10, i would say it was a definite 10.

Found Blue Heron when looking for middle location to stay near Harriman State Park and the Grand Tetons. Did a quick b and b search and Blue Heron popped up. What a great find. We had a wonderful visit in a very relaxing enviorment. Dave and Claudia were wonderful host and hostess. Inn was relaxing and impeccably maintained.
We did alot of driving on this trip but great place to relax each evening.
