“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

We have stayed with Jan and Bill before and loved the ambiance so much that we asked to book the whole place for a week with our entire family. Jan and Bill used the time for their own vacation and it was an outstanding experience. All of the aspects of the Blue Heron, great location with beautiful views of the marsh and wildlife, were enjoyed by all. Before Jan & Bill left they made sure we had everything we needed and gave us lots of us suggestions on how to entertain the various ages of our group. I highly recommend either a vacation for yourself or consider booking an extended stay for your family.

Room Tip: My favorite is the Seafarer.

Yes, booking the entire house without innkeepers is a great option for a family get together. We are all so scattered from family these days.....so good to have family time especially during the holidays.
Thank you

The innkeepers were exceptionally nice and accommodating. We slept great! The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the Inn is very quiet. Breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area.

What a fun and relaxing weekend. Breakfasts were amazing. Attention to detail was exceptional, from the directions emailed to us prior to our trip, the careful consideration of our food allergies and preferences, to the evening turn downs and mints on the pillows. They also arranged a last minute trip to Sapelo Island. Great hosts.

Jan and Bill have created at the same time, an oasis of pure relaxation and stimulation at their wonderful home. The lush tropical front area along with the view of the salt marsh, esp. from the large balcony is absolutely perfect. Bill and Jan are worldly, yet down to earth people who have worked very hard to construct their vision of an inviting B&B, and every bit of it shows. If you are adventurous enough(as I am), Bill will help you launch one of his kayaks into the marsh and give you guidance. Jan and Bill don't just cook a breakfast, they fabricate and forge a dining presentation that any four star restaurant would be proud of. My wife and I stayed in the "Shell Seeker" room which is a large and cozy suite with all sorts of terrific books from birding and astronomy to Winston Churchill. The view out the back to the marsh was nothing short of fabulous. Can't wait to go back and stay longer next time!
As a footnote, we stayed at another B&B in the city of Darien, which was very nice, but did not compare to The Blue Heron Inn.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a view of the marsh

We got to see a flower bloom at night, and meet an interesting couple at breakfast. This is an "out of the way" place, that is relaxing and comfortable. The food was wonderful and the hosts are engaging and friendly. If you are in to B & B's this is a must.

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...
