This bed and breakfast is my favorite ever. Harry and Jen are great hosts. The theme is human comfort and pleasure in harmony with nature. The vegan breakfasts are huge and delicious, and the hosts' warmth and friendliness make everyone feel at home. The backyard is a beach--the water is right there, and beautiful--especially at night with the moon glittering... More

I travel a lot. I have stayed many places. This place is like coming home. ALL details and comforts are considered by Jen and Harry. The extreme ease that this couple bring to the B & B experience has made this place my favorite of all time. I loved the breakfast and save half for lunch every day...LOVE your place!... More

My lovely wife and I stayed at Deer Run Bed & Breakfast on 5-14-15 through 5-18-15. The trip was easily one of the top vacations we have ever had and I will explain why. If you are a 1st timer I recommend flying into the mainland (Miami or Fort Lauderdale) because it gives you a perspective of the keys that... More

Our recent trip to Deer run was nothing short of a revelation. Located on a quiet finger of land off the main highway DR is an oasis from the more tourist-y keys. Located on a nice small beach the inn has sweeping views of the Atlantic that never get dull. While the beach is not the best for swimming (just... More

Our stay at Deer Run was the highlight of our trip to the Florida Keys in April. It’s on a quiet road that leaves the main highway and follows the southern edge of Big Pine Key. At Deer Run you are totally removed from the commercial activity that lines much of Highway 1. Although there is a house next door... More

I was incredibly excited to find a vegan bed and breakfast in the Florida Keys. I am vegan, and it was such a relief to find a place that had the same convictions. It is located 2 miles off the main highway, so there were no traffic sights or sounds. My husband and I stayed in the room called “Eden”.... More

A haven of tranquility just 2 miles off the US1. The room was comfortable and clean. We made full use of the kayaks, bikes and complementary Bahia Honda park passes to explore the area. You are in such a nice location you really don't want to be travelling far. The breakfasts were beautiful but we stayed 3 nights and had... More

My husband and I stayed at Deer Run B&B twice, many years ago. In some ways, it was the same as we remembered: great location, lovely setting, stellar breakfasts. In other ways, though, we were disappointed. Since it is quite expensive, we assumed it would be even better than in the past. Instead, the facility seems a bit 'casual' in... More

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.
