“Delighted in Darien”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

We decided to leave Savannah a day earlier than planned and stop somewhere for a night on our way to Cumberland Island. On a whim I called and talked to Jan, one of the Innkeepers at the Blue Heron who was able to answer all my questions and booked us in. They have a beautifully remote location, waterfront and nicely landscaped. The room was very comfortable, the resident cats and dogs were fun to play with and Jan and Bill were great companions and conversationalists over a glass of wine or two. My wife and I have stayed at many b & b 's and the Blue Heron receives a gold star from us and our unreserved recommendation. Did I mention the great breakfast?

Room Tip: No worry about choosing a room. You will be more than satisfied whichever one you select.

We stayed at The Marsh House, the next door property affiliated with the B&B, and had breakfast each day at the B&B. The Marsh House was amazing in every way--the attention to detail in the design and decorating was phenomenal. The wraparound porch with rocking chairs, benches, tables, bars etc. was cool, comfortable and relaxing no matter what time of day or where the sun was shining at that time of day. Private tour of Sapelo Island arranged by the B&B for us was enjoyable, as were the lunch and dinner locations recommended by the inn. We'll be back and recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: If you want more privacy than the B&B, stay next door at The Marsh House. 3 bedroom, 2 bath, fu...

We spent 2 nights in the Savannah Room at the Blue Heron Inn and were made to feel at home by Jan and Bill. They arranged a private tour on Sapelo Island which was great and offered other suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the area. The view of the marsh from our porch was fantastic. The breakfasts were tasty and filling, especially the sweet potato pancakes. We would definitely stay here again but probably in one of the bigger rooms.

Really enjoyed our stay here once we asked for the aircon to be turned off, (it was very noisy especially when you're not used to it). Jan and Bill were great hosts really helpful, welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and our room was lovely, we were upgraded to The Blue Heron room, it was huge with a great bathroom. The setting is idyllic and would love to come back and see more of this part of the coast and paddle the river outside the Inn

Warm and welcoming people, beautiful location, comfortable and pleasant rooms- highly recommend for a much-needed getaway! We didn't want to leave when it was time to check out. Hopefully we will have excuses to go back and visit soon. Don't miss the sweet potato pancakes at breakfast in the morning.

What an amazing place. Great people, great food. The show from Girls on Trapeze over at the Marsh Studio was just so awesome.
The Blue Heron Room was beyond our expectations. With the soft and luxurious King size bed. Jetted tube to wash away any stresses that you brought with you. Breathe taking views over the marsh. Do you remember the days when you were a kid and you could actually see the stars in the dark night, well at the Blue Heron Inn that’s what you get standing on the deck at night and all you see is the stars.
Breakfast of champions cooked by Bill in the morning. Wonderful, beautiful, amazing yard to walk around and see the plants and trees or just watch the birds and look for the little crabs all around. Sit out on the dock and enjoy the evening. Tree swing to float in the air watching the wind blow across the marsh. If you look close enough you can see boats going to and from Sapelo Island. Just minutes from fresh Georgia caught shrimp and crabs at many of the nearby restaurants.
A must visit and stay for a while Bed and Breakfast

The Blue Heron Inn was a beautiful welcoming place to stay. You could not ask for more gracious hosts than Jan and Bill. Our room,as most did,had it's own private balcony were you could sit outside and view the waterway marsh. The Breakfasts were gourmet and a delicious start to your day! The beds were very comfortable;soft linens and pillows for a good night's rest. Their pets are precious too. We really loved staying here and I hope we get to go back soon. I would most definitely recommend The Blue Heron Inn.

Room Tip: All of the rooms looked to be very nice depending on how large you wanted. We had the Shell Seekers...
