Nancy (a practicing attorney) and Barry (the innkeeper extraordinaire) were welcoming and gracious hosts! Parking is a bit tricky ... on side of house down an alley. Full payment is expected as soon as you arrive and check-in. Home was decorated nicely with lots of little-touches that added to the experience. The location of this B&B, as many have noted,... More

We stayed in the Bear room for two nights. The owners are so wonderful and talkative. Sharing conversation with them and the other guests was very pleasant. The house is decorated very tastefully and meticulously. The beds were very clean and soft. The towels were very soft also. The room is very cozy and perfect for two. Breakfast was delicious... More

Barry and Nancy were delightful hosts. The room was very clean and attractive and the breakfasts were over and above what we expected. Nancy even shared recipes for the delicious treats she created. We enjoyed getting to know our fellow travelers at the shared breakfast table. When we told them our next destination all had helpful hints and Nancy even... More

The inn is just steps from shops and the ferry to the island. The house is beautiful and very clean. The hosts are very nice and knowledgeable about the area and had great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. The breakfasts were delicious, eggs Benedict were my favorite. The only suggestion I have for them is to... More

I would highly recommend this inn. We stayed in the Hemingway room which was very tastefully decorated,and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. I just loved the two leather chairs that were facing the fireplace! We had two wonderful breakfasts,very filling. Our hosts were eager to share tips on our trip to the island and things to do there.... More

We had a lovely stay here! Our room (Hemmingway) was very clean with modern appointments, including a memory foam bed, a selection of pillows, wi-fi, fireplace, DVD player and whirlpool. Very comfortable and up-to-date even though the house is 100 years old. Breakfast was delicious both mornings, and Barry and Nancy were welcoming hosts, making sure all of the guests... More

I would reccomend this place. The innkeepers were very friendly. Nancy was outgoing and interesting. We stayed as a fmily 3 siblings and parents. We had 3 rooms. All three rooms wer clean and tidy. Many books and reading material in the common area. The only thing I'd have asked to be different is possibly a coffee maker available in... More

We stayed in the Hemingway room -- meticulously decorated, every detail carefully considered, beautiful furniture, large space, very clean. The Inn is ideally located near shops, restaurants and the ferry. The set up of our room surprised us. There is no door between the bedroom area and the sink, shower, and tub. Only the toilet has a door for privacy.... More

Thanks Barry and Nancy for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the breakfasts and had a lovely nights sleep in the Hiawatha Room. Only a couple of negatives it would be nice to have access to hot water and drinks throughout the day. And it would be better for you to give people a chance to settle in before taking the... More

This place won't disappoint if you choose Deer Head Inn. Barry and his wife made you at home with their knowledge of the area and the nice breakfast spread. I really had no idea where in town it was located, but greatly surprised to find it was only a block of 'the strip', to which we walked to Shepard's Dock.... More
