About

Blue Heron is a historic home located on the North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain, just 45 minutes from New Orleans. We are conveniently located on the main street through Old Mandeville within walking distance of all the local hotspots, including the lakefront, the Tammany Trace, the Dew Drop Jazz and Social Hall, the Pontchartrain Yacht Club, restaurants, shops, farmers markets and more. Blue Heron has two luxurious guest suites, each with a king size bed, private bath, dining area, refrigerator, microwave, coffee service, and essential oil diffuser. Each suite is accessed by its own private entrance from a large porch that overlooks the property's gardens. Guests can relax on their private porch area with rocking chairs, dining table and daybed, and outdoor curtains for additional privacy. Breakfast is fully stocked in the rooms each afternoon so that guests can wake and dine at their leisure in the morning - either in their suite or on the porch. Breakfast consists of fresh pastries, quiche, fruit, coffee, tea, juice, milk, cereal, oatmeal and more. Blue Heron is owned and operated by Northshore natives Steven & Sarah Federer, who also live on the property. Steven is a third-generation restauranteur with a passion for food and Southern hospitality, and Sarah is a public relations practitioner and Young Living Essential Oils Executive who grew up in her parents' B&B in downtown Covington. Together they bring more than 30 years of hospitality experience to Blue Heron.
