We stayed with my husband at the Grand Suite View and were very pleasantly surprised. The view is indeed awesone and the suite itself very spacious. I really liked the nice touch of having some basic stuff in the fridge for breakfast (but for European visitors would be nicer to have fresh bread and jam/butter than a tea or coffee cake - just a suggestion for the future).
We loved the binoculars and the cozy atmosphere.
Some previous reviewers complained about the fact that nobody welcome them when they arrived but actually we loved this - it enforces the feeling of intimacy and quiet. The black heron inn is like a retreat for nature and silence lovers. And if you need help, Mamie answers email (thanks Mamie!) which is exactly what I would expect
Loved our stay and we would go again
