Reviewed 6 October 2013

Our daughter got married in Point Reyes and we had never been there before. This Inn was quiet and off the main road. It was clean and had a nice view also. The decor is a bit dated, it could use some newer items throughout, but it was a pleasant stay! They provided some fresh fruit, 2 small breakfast breads and it has a small kitchen area, no microwave though. Also the ice machine outside was completely empty. A nice touch was the personal note from the owners in our box!

We didn't want to leave the Black Heron Inn. We could have stood on the balcony all day and night looking at the steller western view of birds, flora and fauna. We were greeted by a private note from the owners who had delivered coffee cake and fresh fruit for our morning breakfast. The room was spotless and very comfortable. We can't wait to return.

This was a perfect location. Off of the main road, very quiet, yet a short drive into town.
Enjoyed watching deer, bobcat, wild turkeys, out side of our picture window. Close to hiking, horsebackriding, etc. Wish American had European style beds. Basically two twins pushed together, so you don't feel the other person moving.
It would be nice if there is a way to shut off the outside lights for star gazing, since it's so clear at night.....

We spent 3 days here & hated to leave. Large deck overlooking the bay and rolling hills & we could sit in bed watching the raptors performing for us. Total quiet privacy.
Breakfast supplies left in room in our arrival so it was nice to sit on the deck or at the table & watch the deer go by. Short drive to town for some fun shops & restaurant @ great hiking made for a perfect getaway. We will be back!

We enjoyed our one night stay in the Grand View room at the Black Heron Inn. It is a small B&B where the rooms are a part of the same building as the owners' residence. It's one of those places where you don't really have any contact with the owners unless you wish to, as the room is fully stocked before you arrive, and are not serviced during your stay. This is just fine with us.

Our room was nice with a gorgeous view. There's a downstairs portion with a small living room, kitchenette and bathroom, and a sleeping loft with bed. The bed was very comfortable.

I only have a couple of minor quibbles. First, it would be nice if there's a sofa in the living room rather than two recliners separated by a huge coffee table. On a romantic getaway, it would be nice to snuggle up on the couch rather than sitting 3 ft away from each other :). The other thing is the breakfast. There's plenty of cereal, fruit, and a home-made loaf cake (I think ours was persimmon). A little more variety in the pastry would be nice for the price of the room ($225). My husband didn't like the loaf cake so could only eat cereal.

One other note. Despite that it's only about a mile into town, you really can't walk after dark, as the road is windy, hilly and without sidewalks. So don't think you can walk to dinner.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: I think the Bay View room would be the best as it's upstairs so you can see the bay. The Ridge w...

Traveling Northern California, the Blake Heron Inn has been my favorite place to stay. Waking up each morning with breakfast already in the room so that I could simply make coffee and sit at the kitchen table looking out on a beautiful view was wonderful. The inn is very quiet and i was the only person there one of the three nights I stayed. There are great hiking recommendations in the room and I took one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever made based on those recommendations...take the Sky trail to Arch Rock if you have the time and energy.

I loved the privacy and beauty of this place. My expectations were set by other reviews on Trip Advisor, which I found to be really accurate. The directions were easy to follow to find the place and it is only a few minutes outside of town where restaurants are located. Cafe Reyes and the Bovine Bakery are also well worth the visit.

The Black Heron Inn is in Pt.Reyes station, yet far from any noise (an issue if you are close to Hwy 1 and its bikers). Our room on the top floor was pristine at check-in. The open view from our front loggia over the Tomales Bay is spectacular, do not miss the colors at sunrise. We like the extreme privacy, the freedom to make our own bkfast at our own leisure, the banana bread was superb. We did not see the owners during our two days stay, yet everything was right. The inn is close to a park trail head. A great place to relax.

Room Tip: The extra $ for the top floor room is well worth it, though we had used the lower floor rooms some y...
