SOLD OUT FOR THE 2021 SEASON IN GUSTAVUS & GLACIER BAY.
HAPPY TRAVELS & HOPE TO SEE YOU ANOTHER TIME.
After being closed due to Covid19 for the 2020 season, we are pleased to reopen with caution for the 2021 season. We are completely sold out at Blue Heron B&B and are sorry to disappoint our many guests. Perhaps we will get to meet you another year and help orchestrate the perfect stay at Blue Heron for a trip of a lifetime!
May you have a fabulous stay in Gustavus and Glacier Bay or elsewhere in Southeast Alaska.
I would like to suggest our 3 favorite guest trips over the past 20+ years:
1) the tour back in time through the amazing landscapes and wildlife viewing of the Glaciers of the Bay
2) the incredible and memorable half day Whalewatch tour on the naturalist led trip on the M/V Taz/Cross Sound Express, departing from Gustavus 2x/day
3) and a guided kayak trip into the sheltered waters of Bartlett Cove
with trained naturalists.
Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast in a field of wildflowers
Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast is unique! Our octagonal cedar home sits adjacent to Heron Guest House and the two Deluxe cabins with kitchenettes. All are nestled in a wildflower meadow filled with lupine, shooting stars, Indian paintbrush, cowparsnip, and fireweed. It creates a virtual artist's palette!
An important part of our homestead is our large garden with its renowned, oversized cabbages, carrots, potatoes (eight varieties), root crops, fragrant herbs, and flowers. Then there is the inviting sunroom attached to our cedar home where you can
unwind over a cup of coffee or save yourself for the morning's
Cabins & Lupine
We offer Glacier Bay, Icy Strait, Pt. Adolphus and Outer Coast tour packages so you can explore this unique land of fjords, calving glaciers, spouting whales, and spectacular wild life sightings.

Gustavus provides visitors with an authentic, small town Alaskan experience without the crowds or lines. Come enjoy the friendliness of our B&B with its personalized service, exceptional fine dining opportunities and amazing views. The average stay of our guests is 3-4 nights so they can get in all their chosen activities in a perfect environment with knowledgeable guides and better weather than most Southeast communities.
We can even loan you extra warm clothing for this adventure of a lifetime. You will find binoculars in each room so you can view our spectacular Fairweather Mt. Range, marsh hawks, eagles, herons, cranes, or an occasional bear or moose.
