“What a gem!!!!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

What a lovely get away! We had a great time exploring the Verde Valley. The Blue Heron is a total hidden gem. Quiet, clean, charming, cozy, friendly, romantic - what else can you ask for?!!! We only stayed one night and really wished we had allocated more time for the sweet Blue Heron. Tom was such a delightful host. We are really looking forward to our next visit!

This was an experience we'll remember! The Blue Heron Guest House is beautiful, charming and clean. Tom and Truly are excellent hosts with an eye for detail. The guest house has a way of providing you with all that you could possibly want while reminding you that all you need is the one's you love. The ambiance is fun, romantic and casual. The wonderful fireplace in the back was a beautiful place to toast to our wedding anniversary. We can't wait to come back!!

I cannot speak highly enough of The Blue Heron Guest House, it was quiet, charming, cozy and perfect for our romantic weekend away. Tom was so friendly and accommodating. The front porch was a beautiful place to enjoy a glass of wine, the bed was comfy, good size bathroom and kitchenette. The best part was that it was clean, cozy and felt like home, I would absolutely stay there again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Blue Heron for two nights cause we needed a get-a-way weekend last minute that wasn't going to cost us mega money. Thankfully the Verde Valley is just an hour away and it has wineries, flowing water, and beautiful scenery. Since we live in Flagstaff, its easy for us to drive down the mountain but finding a decent place to relax at a reasonable price can be difficult. I found the Blue Heron on TripAdvisor and it was an awesome find!

We checked and met with the proprietor, who lives next door. He showed us around and gave us some dinner recommendations. We payed him in cash and he bid us goodbye. We only saw him in passing and he made sure we had everything we need.

We had dinner at Nicks in Cottonwood (about 5 minutes away from the Blue Heron) and it was sooo delicious!! Great food and cool atmosphere. We spent the next day wine tasting throughout Cornville. In the late afternoon, we met up with some friends camping near the creek outside Sedona and headed back to the Blue Heron at sunset.

The actual little studio is cute and clean. There's wi-fi, basic cable, and a fridge. What else do you need!? I would definitely recommend it to anyone. The owner even gives you fresh fruit and muffins :)

This place has everything you'd want to enjoy your stay in the Verde Valley. It's tucked away in the lower part of Clarkdale; 2 minutes from the Verde River, 5 minutes to the downtown Clarkdale, 10 minutes to Old Town Cottonwood (with great tasting rooms and antique stores), and 10-15 minutes to Jerome (which needs no introduction). The owners, Tom and Truly were full of recommendations and absolutely wonderful. The building itself has tons of character, I believe it was original to the property and they did an outstanding job modernizing the interior, while keeping the exterior's "patina". The bed was comfy and the room had everything we could need. I honestly couldn't think of a better experience, especially considering the extremely reasonable price.

This is a lovely hidden treasure, ideal for couples who want a quiet getaway. We enjoyed the clean air-conditioned comfortable cabin, with our every need anticipated. How nice to sit on the front-porch rockers and listen to the birds and watch other wildlife in their own milieu, including a skittish raccoon one cool evening. The proprietors were personable and helpful in every way. A true hideaway, yet with easy access to restaurants and shopping, to the Verde Valley train, and many other interesting places. We look forward to our next visit.

Just the perfect size and the price is great! We stay here every time we are in the area. Lot's of peace and quiet, my husband and I love sitting in the rockers on the porch and enjoying the views. Tons of places for walking and it's close to everything in the Verde Valley including Jerome, Sedona and the Verde Valley Railroad. Very quiet neighborhood making the perfect place to enjoy the night sky and listen to the Verde River. Super clean and comfortable, they provide a little fridge, coffee maker and everything you could need to enjoy your stay. The perfect off-the-beaten bath gem of a guest house.
