Great first B&B experience
May 20, 2013 by: Shannon S from Columbia, VA
We just stayed at the Blue Heron Inn for our very first bed and breakfast getaway, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Even though the Inn was nearly full, it felt completely private. Our room was large and very comfortable, the place was immaculate, and the staff were warm and friendly; available without being intrusive, Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short because of bad weather, but I would have loved to stay longer at the Blue Heron. A truly terrific experience for first time B&B guests! I would recommend the Blue Heron Inn as the ideal place to stay in Solomons, it is centrally located, but quiet and comfortable. Amazing!!!!
Perfect place for daughter's wedding
May 17, 2013 by: cbpercy from Alexandria,Va
Especially since someone had connections and turned a 60% chance of rain day into the perfect weather for a waterside wedding. :-) We booked all four rooms for two sets of parents; the bride and her maid of honor; and a room for the groom. Very spacious rooms and as mentioned, the 2 on the second floor have direct access to a balcony. The bistro level also has a wide balcony perfect for enjoying your morning cup of coffee with a spectacular view. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are on the upper level, so climbing somewhat steep stairs is a must. Very quiet up there though. The bathroom in #1 was huge and perfect for five bridesmaids to help each other and the bride get ready. The sitting area in room 2 provided a nice gathering spot for snacks during the preliminary activities. The brick walk across the lawn to the water made for a perfect aisle for daughter and the water was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony and photos. We rented 90 chairs and a 20 by 30 tent from a nearby vendor....the tent being a last minute addition because of predicted rain - but it ended up providing a nice shade covering from the sun. We only ate breakfast at the Inn because our reception was at a private club next door, but the breakfasts were very ample and totally yummy! Lots of fresh fruit, warm banana bread and a hot main course served each day. We slept very well, after the Tiki Bar noise flowing across the water died down....but since many of the patrons there that weekend were from our event, I guess we couldn't really complain. :-) Would definitely go back for a quiet getaway.
Belle Maison Bistro and Blue Heron Inn
Jan 30, 2013 by: Hey_Joe54 from Solomons, Maryland, United States
We selected Blue Heron and Belle Maison Bistro for a place to stay and entertain friends for a double birthday celebration. We knew we were not taking a chance because of the sterling repution of Amanda (owner/operator/chef) whose schooling as a Chef at Cordon Bleu in Paris and Culinary Institute of America comes through in every aspect of her entire menu (changes weekly so there is always a surprise in store). Amanda suggested a platter style multicourse experience and served us the entire menu for our party of 9. It was simply amazing. As to rooms, they are spacious and well appointed and breakfast the following morning was another culinary feast.

Blue Heron is a unique facility that doesn't have the feel of a true Bed and Breakfast, it's much more private. Guest accomodations are excellent, the breakfast outstanding and the hostess goes out of her way to make the guest feel at home. Highly recommend!
Beds Hurt My Back
Nov 12, 2012 by: Customer111212 from Washington DC area
For the high price, I didn't find this BB worth it. My back ached from the soft bed and they didn't bother to clean up the room on the obligatory second day. I was in the top floor-so it was a long haul to the coffee and tea. I had an upset stomach and really could have used a cup of tea. But the kitchen/dining room is turned into a restaurant each night, so you can not make tea in the evening. Frankly, it apears that the food and restaurant is more of an interest to the owners than the lodging part. It would be a good idea for them to have a coffee maker on each of the four rooms. I definitely didn't feel that it was worth the money.
