Wonderful spot. If you want a place to chill out that offers spectacular views and birding, this is it. Bicycles and kyaks are included too. Local chocolates at night and scrumptious breakfasts, yum. Innkeepers Bill and Jan have created a special haven for lovers of beauty and comfort. The rooms are elegant, airy, and spotlessly clean. Bill and Jan offer...

We just returned from spending the weekend and our 25th wedding anniversary at The Blue Heron Inn. All I can say is this is one of our favorite places to relax and unwind. Jan and Bill are the ultimate inn keepers. They are friendly and welcoming and share a wealth of knowledge about this historic area in Georgia. The rooms...

Oh, thank you. We like nothing more than to know our guests have enjoyed precious down time here at Blue Heron. Yes, the birds are truly amazing especially since the new rookery has formed on our pond. Today the butterflies are everywhere....and also amazing. Hope to see you again soon.

We loved every minute of our stay with Jan and Bill at Blue Heron. The Inn is beautiful, quiet, comfortable and...perfect. We kayaked, biked, visited Sapelo Island (Jan took care of our reservations), joined in the Saturday night bonfire - it was a wonderful extended weekend. The breakfasts were lovely and delicious. You won't be disappointed. We cannot wait to...

I stayed only one night, solo traveler, but I wished I'd known how exquisite this inn was going to be because I would have stayed another night or two here, and less on Jekyll and St. Simons Islands, which is where I had just spent most of my vacation. As soon as I pulled up on the driveway, I was...

You are so right about one night not being enough. I hear that more than anything else...the stay is never quite long enough. I'll be looking for you to return. Thank you.

We traveled to the Blue Heron Inn with another couple for the weekend. This was our first visit since the Inn had burned down and was rebuilt. The place is absolutely beautiful! The rooms are large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was scrumptious and our host, Bill, and Jan were awesome as always. We had to be up at 5:30...

We stayed for 3 wonderful nights with Bill and Jan who made us feel so welcome and comfortable in their beautiful home. Our Seafarer room was immaculate with a fabulous verandah to take in the views of the salt marshes. As keen birdwatchers we logged 31 different species in and around the area and had many helpful hints from Jan...

You don't want to hear this but....a few males have shown up since you left. They were in various stages of molting and likely did not want to be seen. Hope the rest of you trip was wonderful and thank you for the pictures you sent

This is a first class inn on the outskirts of Darien. I hesitate to recommend it because I want to keep this gem for myself. Jan & Bill are extraordinarily welcoming and make you feel at home. There is beautiful scenery and kayaking available with advanced planning.

My husband and I have stayed at the Blue Heron 6 or 7 times. We always made a stop here when we had homes in Maryland and Florida, during our biannual treks back and forth. Now that we only live in Florida we haven't been here for several years. Although the original Inn was charming, due to a fire it...

And what a delight to see you again! So glad you enjoyed the new Blue Heron. We love our snowbirds and of course our many return guests and friends like you.

Jan and Bill are incredible hosts and certainly make you feel right at home. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. Each room has it's own temperature control and private bath. Breakfasts are delicious; especially the Key Lime French Toast. I highly recommend this B&B and will stay there again.
