View from balcony was of Mt. The accommodation is clean and comfortable with great areas to relax and read. The only downside which may just be me was there was no one to greet us.
There was a note on the door and a key left for us. We had to enter ourselves and make home in an empty property. There was only one other couple staying there that night. The proprietors turned up early in the morning to cook a great breakfast. Please don't let this put you off as it was just my expectation. This may be different for others, or indeed may not be the norm at the Blue Heron. Jonathan, United Kingdom The view was amazing!!!!
Gigantic windows give you the perfect view of Mount St. The innkeeper was very knowledgeable and even gave us the tip to go up to the observatory early to miss the traffic. Helens, perfect location for visiting the volcano and not too far from the highway for dinner options. Owner was very welcoming and breakfast was very nice. Room was comfortable, we were offered an upgrade from a queen to a king room because there was availability. Very comfortable communal sitting areas both inside and outside to enjoy the view, and sweet treats and soda left for the guests to enjoy.
Jamie, United States of America Breakfast was nicely done with table set up for conversation with other travelers. Fresh ingredients and local berries were tasty. Wynn, United States of America The folks at Blue Herron were friendly, helpful and very concerned with the comfort of their guests. This was an enjoyable stop-over and extremely handy to Mt.
The State Park is almost adjacent to the Blue Heron, but the National Park is about an hours drive out and an hour back. Good place to consider an over night stop. Immaculately clean carpeting, bathroom facilities, main dining area, kitchen, common deck. I loved it and would highly recommend it to all who love the bed and breakfast accommodation style. The hostess is wonderful, very accommodating. Marion, United States of America Great ambiance. Healthy breakfast with stay. Close to Mt St Helens Visitor center and plenty of great hikes nearby Anthony, Australia The chateau is in a great mid way point for those traveling between Seattle and Portland.
We spent the night and then made the trek out to Mt. Helens in the morning. Kristen, United States of America The view from the front porch is excellent. The rooms all have windows that face Mt.
If you are travelling to see the mountain then this is an excellent place to stay for your visit. The house itself looks like a mountain retreat. I really like the layout of the place. There is a general gathering area and a large front porch. If a group is travelling together I expect that they would enjoy the large open feel of the place.
The restaurant options are limited, but this is not a reflection on the location of the property. When You can find some good options just 6 miles away. Pizza, subs, take-out, that kind of food is located 6 miles away. There is a general store about 5 miles away.
This was my first time back to this area in several years and when I come back again, I will stay at the Blue Heron. Louis, United States of America Excellent location!
