The Blue Heron Inn is a true hideaway. We had a two night stay and were absolutely charmed by the location and our wonderful hosts Bill and Jan. The setting is directly off the marsh with great views form our balcony. We stayed in the Blue Heron Room which was HUGE! There are plenty of birds to watch and the peace and quiet was perfect. Breakfast was wonderful with the first one being lime french toast and the second morning having shrimp omelets.
Bill and Jan were the BEST hosts that we have ever had in all of our B & B experiences. They booked our trip over to Sapelo Island for us including a tour of the island with George. George was born on Sapelo and has lived their his whole life. What a tour! I do not believe that there is anything that our hosts weren't prepared for. They even came through with a cooler for us to take to the island when we found that we had left ours at home.
Being located just around the corner from the ferry to Salpelo and less than 30 minutes away from St Simons and Jekyll Islands, Darien was the perfect location without all of the "touristy stuff." We will certainly be visiting the Blue Heron Inn again and again and by the way, ask Jan about her award winning KEY LIME ice cream.
