Smal room with window AC unit 18" from bed, no nightstand, one chair, rusted fin tube in bathroom, risked toilet bowl, small fiberglass shower with no light, no shampoo. "Lake view" is through power lines. The place is tired and below the standard I have previously experienced in the region. For $168/ night, I expected much better.

We had an excellent weekend in Findley Lake, NY. The area is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the location was perfect. The Blue Heron Inn was clean and comfortable. The staff was very polite and accommodating. The food was delicious.

Our family party of 7 enjoyed dinner--excellent Reuben sandwiches, Philly steak sandwich, chef salad, ribs, and grilled cheese on rye--all very delicious! Our server was so polite and attentive. The portions were very generous and the rye bread was super! The setting on Findley Lake is special and the restaurant is very quaint and well-appointed. The Blue Heron was a... More

My husband and I spent our 28th anniversary at the Inn this past December. It was very quaint, quiet and relaxing and the food was excellent and service was 1st rate. It was off season but we felt at home and very welcome. We will go back.

My Mother and I stopped for lunch today. We were looking forward to a nice lunch since it has been reviewed in the Erie Times a News Showcase.

The food is overpriced and nothing to write home about. Portions are skimpy, at best. The kebobs are less than an appetizer. Service is shotty, at best. The location is very nice, which is the best part about eating here. We did not stay at the hotel, so I can't comment on that.

After 27 years together, my partner & I got married with the ceremony held here. We spent the night before so we didn't have to rush on the day of the wedding. From first contact to leaving, we had great, positive experiences. The beds were great, the rooms comfortable & the food (we had a buffet) was excellent. We think... More

Me and my husband ordered the steak which was a good size. But not the most flavored. I had a small potatoe he had a larger one. The cole slaw was like two, three bites in a small condiment cup. Not worth what we paid. My son had the salmon which was quite small, with the same cole slaw. We... More
