When you stay at a bed & breakfast, you expect a comfortable bed, a clean room and a good meal. However The Blue Heron Inn gives you much much more. It's all about the details here...the fresh flowers in your room, kindness of the innkeepers and the good china and silver for your breakfast on the wrap around porch. Check...

Thank you for your review. We love showcasing our inn as well as our delightfully fabulous downtown area! We were so happy that during late fall you could enjoy a yummy breakfast out on our porch! Hopefully we will see you again when you can also enjoy the backyard and pool! Take care!

My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's—Blue Heron Inn is simply everything a B&B should be. Julie and David are ideal hosts. So accommodating, super friendly, relaxed yet busily making sure we were lacking nothing. The house was at full occupancy and Saturday was the annual "Cookie Tour" for which they had baked over 900 cookies! Yet with...

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review, especially this busy time of year! Yes, each time this year we host the B&B Cookie Tour for which a portion of the proceeds benefits a local charity. It's fun but as you said very demanding! We are glad you were able to enjoy all the fun downtown including all...

We have stayed in most of the inns in Fernadina, and although they are all very nice, Julie and David are the best innkeepers! They are so personable and make you feel like old friends. They are what makes our stay seem like we are "the only guests in the inn"! Breakfast is an elegant treat and so good that...

Julie and David made for the perfect get-away (only about 2 miles from our home!) and special birthday celebration. Happy hour in their cozy sitting room, comfy digs in the Sandpiper Suite, plus a relaxed but gourmet breakfast to send us on our way. Bravo and cheers, to the Jones's. Thank you so much.

I love older houses and staying at the Blue Heron made me feel right at home. David and Julie were wonderful hosts-- in addition to providing good conversation at happy hour by the pool, they made dinner reservations for us and cooked a great breakfast at a slightly earlier time than normal so we could catch a morning ferry. The...

We loved our one night stay here and regret it wasn't longer. Right from the start the service from David and Julie was amazing. Really taken in like they genuinely are happy you are there and not like it is a business. We were on our honeymoon making our way down the east coast. Loved the Island and this B&B...

This is perhaps the most welcoming B&B we have erer stayed at. Our room was excellent, with all the usual amenities including a great shower head over a large tub, and comfy robes in the closet. Our room (Blue Heron) was on the first floor, which we found very convenient. The place was comfortably cool with their whole house AC,...

We enjoyed our stay in the Princess Room. Well-appointed, comfortable and quiet. Julie is a great baker; do not pass up her parmesan crackers. Location is perfect on the edge of the business center where there are plenty of excellent restaurants and interesting shops.

Our first visit three years ago was so wonderful we decided to go again and are so happy we did. David was there this time and he and Julie are just a lovely couple and make you feel relaxed and welcomed in their "home".

My favorite part of the Inn was breakfast! Julie served an amazing quiche, savory scone and baked bacon with a brown sugar and pecan glaze! Being served on the front porch was charming. On the downside, I wouldn't choose the room with the very deep whirlpool tub again....it was very hard to climb in and out of!!
