The Fine Print

NO NYS Sales Tax!

Thanks to a provision in the NYS sales tax code, short-term rentals (such as the Blue Heron) that do not provide housekeeping or food service are exempt from charging 8% NYS sales tax. However, we are required to add Chautauqua County's 5% Occupancy Tax onto all reservations.

Peace of Mind (POM) Travel Insurance

This non-refundable POM Travel Insurance $79 fee is required in lieu of obtaining a security deposit prior to arrival. The POM Insurance protects you in the event there is unintentional theft or damage to the premises during your stay.


3 night minimum required uness otherwise noted


Check in is available on Monday, Tuesday and Friday unless otherwise arranged

We provide handicapped access to the first floor where there is also a handicapped-accessible bathroom. However, all guest rooms are located on the 2nd floor and are, therefore, not handicapped accessible.
