Three nights here, but we could have happily stayed twice as long. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel more than welcome. Orcas Island is a relaxing and tranquil place within the San Juan Islands, and the small village of West Sound where the Blue Heropn B&B is located is tranquil and peaceful indeed - an ideal...

We chose the Blue Heron because it was the most reasonably priced on San Juan or Orcas islands, but did not sacrifice anything in terms of quality. The Egret Room was cozy, with an outdoor deck with a breathtaking view of the water. Breakfast was delightful, with the staff cheerfully accommodating my low-carb-yet-meatless diet. Speaking of the staff, they were...

This B&B is cozy and friendly. The hosts are helpful and gracious. The food is fabulous. Best of all, the scenery and atmosphere provide a break from everyday hustles and hassles. It's in a quiet part of the island, near Turtleback Mountain. We'll be back.

My wife and I spent 6 incredible days with our gracious and extemely helpful hosts Bogdan, Carole and of course Pulaski. The views from the B&B are beautiful and made me nostalgic for the Maine coast where I grew up. It is centrally located and within minutes of restaurants, kayaking, hiking, biking etc. Carole and Bogdan were helpful with tips...

This is a lovely B&B on a very scenic part of Orcas island. Carol and Bogdan were very kind and gracious hosts. We had a great time while staying here. You can reach most parts of the island in 15 minutes (or less) from this location. They have 4 rooms at this B&B so if you plan to stay here...

I stayed here in September 2010 with my wife on a soggy trip to the San Juan Islands. We stayed here for two nights in between camping to treat ourselves and we weren't disappointed. Carol, Bogdan and Pulaski are excellent hosts and were always available to suggest places to go on the island, give cycling tips and, in the case...

Spent one night at the Blue Heron on a three day trip to thew San Juan Islands. Bogdan and Carol could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We stayed in the Pelican room which was very well decorated, clean and most comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and the price for four of us represented excellent value for money. Would...
