We stayed at Deer Run last week, March 3-6... From the moment we got there to the time we left, we felt very welcomed and at home. Jen and Harry are so helpful, letting us know places to visit, restaurant suggestions, and general information about Big Pine Key. We stayed in the UTOPIA room, and found it to be very... More

If this place isn't careful, i may give Vegan a good name. A friend was staying there and we joined him. The food was great. Then he told us it was vegan. I almost died. Who ever cooked this food is amazing.

You cannot come here without knowing what you're getting yourself into. I think the only reason I did well here was by reading the critical, yet very valid comments. The location is lovely and the B&B accommodates almost any island activity you may be interested in, even bikes. Unfortunately, it was a bit too chilly and windy during my stay... More

Our room was large and comfortable with a big porch overlooking the ocean. The beach in front has comfortable chairs and a hammock available. Bicycles, kayaks, and snorkeling gear are there to use anytime. It was hard to walk out into the ocean despite wearing aqua socks as the coral surface is slippery and uneven. We opted instead to swim... More

We just spent 5 nights at Deer Run. First, the positives: our 2 room suite was clean, quiet and faced the ocean. We could kayak right off the coral beach in front of the hotel. The location near Bahia Honda State Park was the main reason we were on Big Pine Key. The little deer were cute and hopefully did... More

We stayed here for a full week in early February this year. Found it delightful. Great location, charming owners, intimate feeling, close to nature and wonderful kayaking right from their back door. Yes, the place is just a little quirky but that is also its charm. Found the owners Harry and Jenn to be delightful and interested in their guests.... More

We stayed here in December because we wanted a nice, quiet, relaxing few days after spending the first part of our vacation in the more congested parts of the keys. We were extremely disappointed to be greeted right off the bat with constant LOUD construction noise from the neighboring property. This construction started at 8am every morning and there was...

We are so very sorry that work was going on next door during your stay which detracted from your experience. We do truly and profusely apologize. Unfortunately we have no control over what neighboring properties choose to do, or when, to their establishments. What we are able to control is making sure contractors and homeowners adhere to local noise restrictions... More

On the ocean, with kayaks, snorkels, and bicycles available for use, this place is a little slice of paradise. The grounds have a wonderful "Keys feel": both beach-y and funky. And those grounds, including a salt-water pool and spa area, light up magically at night with thousands of points of laser light. Jen whips up the most magnificent vegan breakfasts,... More

From the moment when we drove through the gates of Deer Run B&B our first night there, my husband and I knew this place was unlike any other we'd ever been to.
