We loved our short stay at Deer Head Inn. The hosts showed us to the Hemingway Suite which was spacious and spotless! The fireplace was so cozy while we watched movies from the hosts collection. Comfy recliners, great 4-poster bed, jetted tub and scrumptious breakfasts were just the start. The hosts are really knowledgable about local attractions as well as... More

My husband and I escaped our lives for a couple of days and choose the serenity and quiet of Mackinaw City (AFTER TOURING SEASON). It was a good plan. All was quiet and the Inn provided comfort and relaxation. Barry and Nancy were wonderful hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed breakfasts! While some of the restaurants and common shops (summer t-shirts... More

The Deer Head Inn was a wonderful surprise. Our room faced the street but it was very quiet at night. The room was cozy and the bed was comfortable. You do have to carry your suitcases up a short, narrow stairway. Breakfast was outstanding! The innkeeper and his wife were friendly and gave us great tips on seeing Mackinac Island.... More

I stayed here while attending a conference up north and enjoyed my stay. The room I stayed in was the lighthouse room which was well decorated in a lighthouse theme. The bedding was comfortable with a fireplace in the room. The inn keepers have soaps made up for them that they put in the rooms. The one downside to the... More

My wife and I made a reservation at The Deer Head Inn based on a recommendation from a friend and great reviews on tripadvisor. We stayed in The Bear Room at the inn during our first visit to Mackinaw City. Barry and Nancy were very friendly and served excellent breakfasts for both days during our stay. They were very helpful... More

We stayed in the Hiawatha room, this past weekend (10/4 - 10/6/2013) and enjoyed it very much. Barry and Nancy and kind and interesting people who are a pleasure to talk to. The accommodations are cozy and comfortable and the location of the Inn can't be beat at all. We had a lovely stay, here, and would return in a... More

Just returned last month from a two week MI/WI vacation and spent two nights at the Inn. The hosts, Nancy and Barry were very nice, warm, and welcoming. We stayed in the Hemingway room and found it quite adequate for the two of us. However, you need to get use to the animals mounted all over the room and the... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Deer Head Inn recently. You can't beat the location in a quiet neighborhood for taking the ferry to Mackinac Island. The home is comfortable, and the hosts, hospitable. We were in the smallest room, the one with the Lighthouse decor. It was manageable, but a bit cramped for two people. There... More

We stayed here three nights after being five nights on Mackinac Island. This B and B is VERY close to town and the ferries, yet felt quiet and peaceful ( like a country setting.) Barry and Nancy were awesome hosts. Nancy made terrific breakfasts and we enjoyed visiting other guests at the big table in the huge dining area. Barry... More

We stayed there last year for our yearly trip to the Mackinaw City area and stayed again this year. Wonderful room, short walking distance to downtown, great breakfast and wonderful hospitality. It is our go-to place to stay in Mackinaw.
