Ditto for the other reviews. B&Bs don't get much better than this. A couple of nits - we booked late and had choice of very small double bedded room or twice the price suite. We took the less expensive room - it's a little tight for two! Also, middle of nowhere. The closest restaurant was the Golf Club - definitely...

Checked into the Blue Heron Inn for the weekend. Dennis and Sandy Koffel are the best innkeepers/owners. There's a very nice family atmosphere and welcoming feel to the whole lodge. It was nice meeting and getting to know other guests. The breakfast is freshly prepared and delicious, perfect way to start off the day. I enjoyed a wonderful relaxing and...

Needed a place to stay between Glacier NP and Salt Lake City. Found the Blue Heron Inn online and I'm so glad I did! Nicest place we stayed on our entire 17 day trip! Made me wish we could stay longer! Great suite (Blue Heron), very roomy and comfortable bed. Balcony with table & chairs, complimentary refreshments, jacuzzi tub, fabulous...

Stayed at Blue Heron Inn and was interested in a place I could bring my dog. You contact the owners for permission to bring a dog. They have 1 room the carraige room that will accomadate a pet. Their rules are basic, pick up after dog and keep on leash on property. The dog is not allowed in the lodge....

We spent our first night at Blue Heron Inn after flying into Idaho Falls airport. We were heading to Jackson Hole, but felt that staying near the airport the first night would be a good idea since we arrived in Idaho at about 7pm. The Inn is really cute. The host was fantastic and is more than willing to discuss...

What a treat to find Blue Heron B&B. The web-page shows the lodge, surroundings, and rooms just like they are. We were not disappointed. The breakfast each morning was great, and so much that it was early evening before we ate again. Dennis and Sandy were great cooks and hosts. We made an easy day trip to Jackson Hole WY...

My husband and I have stayed at many B&B's and this would be one that we would definitely go back to. It is located on a spacious, green, well manicured lawn. The inn itself is very well decorated. We had breakfast outside on the porch which was very pleasant. The food was yummy! There was a welcoming basket in our...

We booked the Blue Heron Inn while visiting friends in the area. We just left this morning and are already thinking about our next visit. Check in was pleasant, unhurried and efficient. The property is beautifully situated on a bend of the Snake River. The grounds and property show evidence of being very well cared for. We enjoyed our undisturbed...

My husband and I flew our airplane from Boise to Rexburg and we stayed at the Blue Heron Inn. The inn was beautiful and super clean. Sandy and Dennis were fun to get to know. The breakfasts were amazing. We stayed two nights in the Mallard Room then the Blue Heron Suite. I would recommend either for the perfect stay!

The reason for our trip was a late birthday present for my wife, which was to stay at the Blue Heron and then a visit to nearby Bear World. Suffice it to say that our room was excellent-very clean and nicely decorated. The common areas were all very well furnished. We enjoyed the hot tub and the peaceful atmosphere of...
