Reviews of Blue Heron
This resort was beautifully landscaped in a secluded Peter Pan forest environment off the highway. There was a very nice club house with separate women and mens showers and spa. The was a pool tablel, a pingpong table, a jacuzzi right out the club house door and a large swimming pool. There were also chairs to sit in and an inside mini open kitchen where we could BBQ and mingle with our guests. We loved the fireplace and the management was the best. They were family oriented, established on the premises and very kind and helpful.
The private bridge from the resort to the waterfront was fun to walk over. The private beach like setting had a picnic table and many row boats and motorized fishing boats that you could rent from the resort. (Only in certain seasons though).
The family went in February and it didn't rain one drop. The trees and lawns were tones of rich green colors. Little pathway lamps made the forest enchanting at sunset and breathtaking at sunrise. Quiet was the 2nd word we could think of and beautiful was our first. (We almost past the entry to the resort because it was off the main road about 500 feet.
The closest town was about 5 miles - we found a Walmart and other small stores. We drove 1 hour to catch the Ferry to Seattle and loved the entire trip. From Seattle, we traveled onto Victoria Canada by Ferry and was back by 10 p.m. that evening.
There was also a Valley Ball court and a very nice tennis court. The units were very nice townhouses with entry ways from the front and back patio.
We would definately stay there again. There were also 2 laundry rooms on site for a minimal price and the view overlooking the lake was offered by each unit. A casino was also about 20 min down the road with a fantastic buffet. The owners told us all about it - and we even found a small church about 5 miles away that welcomed all visitors.
For adults the resort was very beautiful and relaxing. For teenagers it would be a pleasant experience because the club house is so close to the units and the resort is an enity by itself.
Love at first sight!!! Yes..we are definately coming back! We never dreamed there could be such a beautiful place in Union Washington. Our timeshare was a two story townhouse surrounded by a Robin Hood forest setting. The grounds were very lush and green, with scenic pathways guiding us to the recreation building. There was a game room, a fire place, a mini kitchen, a sauna, showers, a jacuzzi, and outdoor pool.
The property upkeep was immaculant and the on site managers were very gracious, informative and perfect hosts.
All guests and owners had access to a private bridge that started on the property and extended to the other side of the overpass. The Hood Canal was a beautiful site with the the Blue Heron (birds) swimming in the bay. There was a picnic table, a fishing bridge and boats that were available throughout the year.
The nearest large store was about 16 minutes away. There was a casino about 18 minutes away with a great buffet and the ferry boat to Seattle was 25 min away in Bremerton.
We also took the ferry to Victoria Canada, which we had to catch in Port Angeles. That was an hour and forty minutes by car, then the ferry took us to Victoria in a little less than 2 hours. A fun day in Canada was leaving at 8:00 am on the ferry and coming back at 4:00 pm from Victoria.
Our vacation was taken in the early part of February 2003 - and the temperatures averaged between 39 and 49 during the day and as low as 27 at night. We did not have any rain that week, however we were told umbrellas were definately a must during that time of the year.
Even though we could have driven to Seattle and even Vancuver Canada, the ferry boats offered additional relaxation with cafeteria foods, comfortable tables and lounge chairs.
