The Blue Heron B&B...a Hidden Gem on Orcas Island
by Tom & Brenda Martinson, from Carlsbad, CA

Little did my husband and I realize what an incredible place Orcas Island could be. We began on trip by taking the Ferry ride to Orcas--a very picturesque and soothing experience. Our vacation was just beginning.

Then we arrived at the Blue Heron. My first thought--pinch me. What a charming and comfortable place! The B&B and is but a stones throw from the beautiful waters surrounding the San Juan islands. So, peaceful and picturesque. We'd awake each morning with our "delicious, kick off breakfast" and look out at the shimmering waters and nature all around us. So quiet.

We spent our days driving all thru the island in all its nooks and crannies, just experiencing more of natures' beauty. After a long day of breathtaking scenery and touring the galleries with the local island artists, we'd come back to the Blue Heron for conversation or quiet time around the fireplace.

Then off to a peaceful night's sleep. Our bed was so cozy and soft I had to ask the owner's where they bought their sheets.

The owner's, Bogdan & Carol were such gracious hosts and have made the Blue Heron and Home away from Home. Their passion for hospitality has made this place a favorite return vacation spot for us.

The value in service and accomodations we received--far exceeded the price of our stay.

We are so looking forward to our return in 2006!
