Although a nearly century-old building, the Blue Heron rooms are updated and well appointed, clean and well maintained. The location, directly across the street from deep inlet of West Sound, was perfect for our kayaking adventures. A restaurant just steps away made dinners easy when we were too tired to go further afield and the “bustling” town of East Sound, with its ample offering of small clothing and craft shops as well as a full grocery store, is only about 15 minutes away. The hamlet of West Sound is tiny and quiet, yet only about 7 minutes driving from the ferry landing on Orcas.
Carol & Bogdan were wonderful hosts, warm, friendly and helpful. They were especially accommodating when my wife and I caught colds. They are charming and engaging, sharing the history of the building and about themselves. The B&B is warmly decorated in a nautical theme with historic photos of the area and their families. Breakfasts were delicious, unique and varied each morning. We had a wonderful visit and look forward to returning in the future.
