When we arrived in Heron, we were worried! But as we drove up the drive to the Amber Bear..... we were all smiles! Our host met us at the front door with a big welcome and there was accommodations for our eighteen wheeler and our straight truck..... after our six hour drive in snow storm, it was nice to have someone take care of us! We were fed wonderfully huge portions of home cooked meals before and after our work day - We felt the care takers were very considerate and kind and the Inn was more beautiful than any that i have seen. Thank you so much for the care and kindness..... we will stay there again when we are up in your neck of the woods. Tell Shelby hello for me!
