Our stay at the Blue Heron B&B began with owner Deb meeting our flight at the Gustavus airport with a sign and a smile. Deb started our stay out on a great note by giving us a personal tour and history of Gustavus before we arrived at our home for the next four nights (Heron House). Our room was comfortable... More

My plan was to meet a sailboat in Glacier Bay and decided that a B&B would be a luxurious treat before that. After speaking with Deb I changed my one night plan to two nights so I could check out the area. Less than a week before my trip I was informed that the sailboat wasn't going to make it... More

Comfy & convenient -- affordable with lots of extras -- the Blue Heron Inn does not disappoint! If you are planning a trip to this magical little island without a car -- transportation is key! Despite arriving 8 hours behind schedule, Deb picked us up at the airport with a big smile and promptly drove us to the only restaurant... More

Comfy cabin; substantial, tasty breakfasts. Airport pick up & drop off. Common room a bit dated, needs spruce-up. Host very knowledgeable, helpful - but at times we felt over-managed. Tended to over-hype Gustavus attractions. Likely one of the best of Gustavus' limited options.

We had the most wonderful experience in Gustavus thanks to Deb. Our rooms were clean, nicely decorated...breakfasts were the most incredible experience...but the real treasure is Deb herself. She went above and beyond to make our trip to Gustavus a memorable one and anticipated (and met) our every need. We are hopeful that we will be able to return another... More

Deb goes above and beyond to try to make her guests as comfortable as possible. If you travel and stay in B&Bs a lot you know this is what makes them a step above a hotel.

We saw a lot of recommandations about the Blue Heron here. Must say we didn't like it. Deb was doing a lot of effort for us but she mentioned it all the time and we felt that we should be very greatful. She didn't give us a moment of privacy. When we ate breakfast she was standing and lecturing about... More

We had three wonderful days in Gustavus while staying at the Blue Heron. The rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated. Since we booked a bit late and by then Deb did not have three nights available in the same room, she offered to move us to a different room at her B&B after two nights into our stay so we... More

Deb is the most on the ball B&B host I have ever met. We flew to Gustavus from Juneau but due to some weather systems, the plane was having issues trying to land. What was supposed to be a 15 minute flight was closer to an hour and the pilot announced that he would make one more attempt to land... More

This place was fantastic. It was clean, pristine, bright and sunny, well appointed, and the breakfasts served were terrific. Our host, Deb, was friendly and knowledgeable and arranged our trips for us to glacier Bay and whale watching.
