The Blue Heron Inn is located over the Moosse Cafe, an excellent restaurant. The owners should either change many things or get out of the room rental business and stick to what they do very well, running a fine restaurant.
Cons: No closet - No chair - No phone - No clock
No radio - No TV - No wastebasket in bath
No hairdryer - No shampoo, cream, etc - No curtains
No luggage rack (and no room to put suitcases on floor)
We arrived and were told we could not check-in until 4pm though there was no one else there. When we arrived at 4pm the door was locked so we went around through the kitchen door and found one of the cooks who let us come in. The rooms (there are 3) are spartan and very small. The water view was had by leaning out the front window. We were ask if we intended to stay for breakfast and when we said yes, they were less than happy. Since we were the only people staying there and we were having dinner with them, it would have been nice if they had said - "How about we comp dessert tonight and skip breakfast tomorrow". We would have been happy to do that and could have been on our way earlier. We ask if we might get coffee since we were early riser and were told they certainly wouldn't be up at 6:30 or 7am and we could probably get it a couple of blocks away at a cafe. When we went down to dinner there were curtains and curtain rods lying on the stairs which it was difficult to get around. The owner was watching - and after dinner when we went up to our room - they were still laying on the stairs. The next morning we walked to local cafe and had nice cup of coffee. We packed and waited for breakfast. At 9am, with no breakfast and no one around, we packed our car and I left a note suggesting that maybe they needed to rethink being in the room rental business. I thought we might have a reply from Carolyn Moore, the owner, but I do intend to send her a copy of this review.
