Had a peaceful and relaxing time at the Heron Inn. Alvin (the attentive host) showed me around the property before I settled into my clean and comfortable room. Easy walk to downtown from the inn. Made use of the wine glass and corkscrew kindly provided in my room (Alvin even helped me securely wrap my opened bottle the next morning...

We celebrated a wedding anniversary here. Staff was attentive and accommodating. Their photos make the rooms seem overly grand. They have interesting antiques, but the large furniture crowds the small rooms. We had to sidle past each other to access our luggage. Alvin set a fire in the lobby, which we enjoyed in the evening. The breakfast did not measure...

I am glad you enjoyed the lobby fire place and that our staff was helpful during your stay with us. I'm very sorry that the room you selected did not meet expectations. We try to make all of the rooms comfortable with a side seating area. As a solution we will add room dimensions to the website to give a...

We enjoyed our day in La Conner and decided to spend the night, found a great room at The Heron Inn & Day Spa. Friendly service and our dogs were welcome too. In the morning we enjoyed a wonderful healthy breakfast to start our day off right.

Nice enough room and bed. Very clean. Bathrobes provided were in need of replacement. Host, Alvin, and other staff were very friendly. Breakfast was big disappointment, especially for a B&B. Offering was very sparse and appeared to be pre-prepared and not fresh or homemade except for fruit. None of the usual B&B fare of fresh baked goods offered - in...

I appreciate the compliments of our clean accommodations and warm staff. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy our breakfast. We pride ourselves on offering fresh in season fruits and vegetables. On our website, we do state that we cater to all types of dietary preferences with the default assumption being gluten free. So it is correct that we do...

We didn't stay at the hotel, but I received a wonderful 75 minute massage from Judy. I highly recommend Judy and the relaxing environment provided in the spa room. I popped into the Inn and they were able to book me a massage within in an hour.

Nestled near magnificent farmland and walking distance to the La Connor Waterfront is the lovely Heron Inn. Rooms are spacious, staff were friendly and helpful with info about areas to explore and local restaurants to try. We were fortunate to spend 3 evenings there and each morning's breakfast was better than the last. Various homemade quiches, bacon, roasted seasonal vegetables,...

We stayed for one night to be close to our whale watching excursion. It's a very clean, bright and convenient establishment. We had the two queen beds and they were SO comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. It was also an easy walk to town (however, be aware during the week nothing is really open past 9 or 10pm)....

Traveled solo and stayed in the standard queen room, which was absolutely lovely. The bed was very comfortable, the water pressure in the shower was great, and the air conditioning was excellent. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. I enjoyed relaxing with a book and a cup of tea on the porch and in the lobby in the evenings. The...

Dana, Thanks for the very nice comments. We tell potential guests that the standard queen is a small room, best suited for those traveling solo, but that it has the same amenities as the other rooms, same comfortable bed, same delicious breakfast, etc., just without a sitting area. I'm particularly glad that you enjoyed our lobby and other common areas....
