My wife and I were returning to Idaho Falls from Jackson Wy to make a flight back home. Mary had researched B&Bs in the area and found Blue Heron Inn, in Rigby ID. We pulled in around 4:00 P.M. just in time to watch a herd of cattle cross the Snake River. The view from our Suite was beautiful and...

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Blue Heron Inn. We give it the highest marks. The grounds are beautiful. Our room was spacious and had a wonderful view of the river. Sandy and Dennis prepared a delicious Sunday brunch that was exceptional. They were wonderful hosts. We even picked apples, pears and plums right off their trees....

As evidenced by all but one of these reviews, my wife, Kris and I also had an excellent experience at the Blue Heron. We stayed three nights, had three great breakfasts and thoroughly enjoyed the well-kept, well-stocked inn. The location is perfect for trips to Yellowstone, Jackson Hole and Craters of the Moon. And, the hot tub in back was...

We spent three nights at this exceptional B&B with every detail provided. The location, property, furnishings, care and information allowed for an experience to be remembered for a long time. The hosts, Dennis and Sandy, provide with a removed presence which feels like home. The residence design is functional and roomy. The breakfast is above any B&B we have enjoyed....

I think we would have enjoyed our stay at the Blue Heron Inn has our room been part of the main house. We were in the carriage house witch is separate and not all that close to the main house. It is a beautiful B&B. Our hosts were friendly and the breakfasts were special. We would happily stay there again,...

This charming B&B was even better than the enticing on-line write-up and photos! Our friendly hosts, Dennis and Sandy, offered a welcoming retreat - every aspect of our stay was wonderful: the serene creekside setting; the home decorated in country elegance; the magnificent breakfast; relaxing on the private deck in their hot tub under starry skies; a comfy luxurious bed...

We spent two nights on the way to & from Yellowstone National Park in the South Fork room. The owners go over & above on every detail - beautiful rooms, breakfast, cold drinks in the small fridge, plush bedding & bath linens. We also enjoyed eating breakfast out on the back deck while having a great view of the Snake...

The Blue Heron Inn is the perfect place to stay. Relaxed atmosphere, beautiful scenery, great rooms, impeccably clean, and an absolutely fantastic breakfast. But, most importantly are the friendly hosts and assistants. New owners took over about a year ago and have continued the warmth that the previous owners had developed. Highly recommend and will be going back for sure....

My colleague and I were lucky enough to stay at the Blue Heron Inn while in-town for a business meeting in Idaho Falls. What an absolutely pleasant surprise! The lodge was located near the river and all sorts of wildlife called the Blue Heron its home. I woke up early the morning we were leaving to see quite the "show"—...

We visited as a side trip when headed for Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Stayed in the Carriage House room -- very comfortable for 2 adults and a teenager. Good mattresses, including the day bed (not the usual for an extra bed -- just ask my daughter). The house and grounds are beautiful; we enjoyed a walk by the...
