What do Our Guests Have to Say about Blue Heron Inn?
"You will not be disappointed! The rooms are beautifully decorated and the view is spectacular from sunrise to sunset!"
"The B&B is incredible. It's a super location off of the beaten track on the lowland coast of Georgia."
"stopped in Darien @Jan and Bills B&B. Once I found it through the forest a small paradies opens. I have had a very nice stay with great hosts and even the opportunity to use a canoe and interact with a pelican. I definitively recommend Blue Heron Inn and look forward staying there again when I am back in the area. Best regards from a Swiss traveler." Winter sunrise on the marsh
