“A disappointing stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2005

We spent two nights at the Blue Heron Inn. While the accommodations are lovely, the non-smiling hosts appeared to be rather frazzled and not very pleasant. The constant reminders of being careful with the teak dining table, not walking on the sink side of the kitchen (oops, I forgot and rinsed my coffee cup...the host grabbled my shoulder and carried on like I committed a crime), and the general tension made for an unpleasant visit. The hosts did go all out and cook a wonderful breakfast, however, they raced around us while we were eating. As soon as we finished our last bite on our plates, the hosts grabbed the plates from underneath us. I would have enjoyed a second cup of tea, but my empty tea mug was taken so quickly, I just gave up.

In addition, the B&B sits on Rt. 126...the constant traffic and tractor trailers buzzing by all night make it difficult to get a good night's sleep.

If you are looking for a B&B in which to relax and feel at home, this is not the place to stay!

Nice B&B with a friendly host. The host knows every restaurant in town and gave us a great recommendation at ICM near the river. Stayed in the honeymoon suite - which was very spacious and comfortable.
