At breakfast Brian asked Sharon to marry him. she said 'yes!" Thank you so much for the wonderful food and warm hospitality!  we will never forget our stay here.  
Brian & Shannon Aug. 5, 2012

"Our children have made us promise we will come back to stay at BH! Their favorites were swimming and canoeing, as well as the game corner upstairs. The 2 stuffed animals to greet them on their beds were a real treat! They enjoyed every breakfast. The Gingerbread pancakes with lemon sauce was both their favorites. We could not have asked for better accommodations or hospitality! Thank you! We will be back!"

"We liked it in '99 before the fire and we like even better now.  It is great to come in cold & tired after a day on the frozen lakes and snow covered trails.  Warmth, great hospitality, good food, and that wonderful sauna!"

"Northern lights green & yellow on the 26th.  Wolf howling the 27th. Cross country skiing & hiking the 27th & 28th. Dogsledding 28th & 29th."
-Tony Schaeffer & Brad Bruno

"Thanks so much for the homelike ambiance, great food and friendly staff.  I'm already thinking about when I can
return again to the northwoods.  
The Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast served as a wonderful  home base for my March vacation.  To be able to explore the boundary waters right outside your door first thing each morning by foot, x-c skis or snowshoes was incredible.  
At night after the wolves quieted down, I'd walk our onto the frozen lake to simply enjoy the stars and the quietness.  And of course my two dogs seemed to enjoy the whole adventure, even when I remarked to them about their naivety in scent marking wolf tracks.   Thanks again to Derek for showing me the Hegman Lake pictographs and being so patient while I photographed wolf scat and myriad types of lichens that we found
along the trail.  And of course, thanks again for scheduling that fantastic dogsledding excursion with White Wilderness!"  -Jeremy
