My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights during the tulip festival in April. The place is very inviting -- wish we could have stayed 1 more day to enjoy the fireplace and a good book. We had massages on-site which were fantastic, and the breakfasts were a nice start to the day. Restaurants all within walking distance. Alvin is very knowledgeable, and the girls were very sweet.

nice place to stay

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Heron Inn and Spa. Alvin and team went above and beyond in terms of making us feel welcomed and making sure we had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay. The Inn is beautiful and perfect location in downtown La Conner.

Rooms were nice. Employees were friendly and helpful. Rooms are ok, the only issue is that the shower had some mold on the edges.

Ladies getaway

My stepmom and I stayed here two nights. We came to see the tulips and putter around La Conner. The rooms were quiet and beautiful. There was a fruit and yogurt buffet with a sit down breakfast of quiche one day and frittata the next, both served with grilled vegetables. Very healthy. The staff was very nice. We hated to leave!

Owner/ manager friendly & helpful

I contacted Al via email & phone to verify that our special needs would be taken care of. He was fabulous and helped in every way. It was easy to care for our aging dog on this trip, with access to the porch and backyard just outside our door. Our bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spacious with a great shower. We enjoyed the living room fireplace. The location was good and onsite parking available. Food was healthy and tasty. Enjoyed the egg dishes both days. Loved the self-serve chia pudding, yogurt, and nice variety of the freshest fruit you could find! The only thing I would change is to increase the portion of side vegetables. It was a very relaxing experience and we will return.

Loved it
