Our family group was made up of 3 adult couples, and we stayed in the Bear Room, Wilderness Room, and the Hiawatha Room. We stayed one night on our way to Pictured Rocks. We were all very impressed by the beautiful house, the deco in the rooms, and definitely the hospitality of our hosts, who knew everything about the area... More

Wonderful owners Nancy and Berry!! They were very accommodating!! I have a milk allergy and she went our of her way to make sure I had an amazing breakfast! Our room was very clean and comfortable. I felt like we were in a chalet on Tennessee! We will be visiting here again!!

We were the only couple at the B&B so we were upgraded for free to a room with a bigger bathroom. That was just within the first 5 minutes! Barry and Nancy were warm and welcoming, provided great restaurant recommendations for dinner, and served a delicious breakfast. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Our room was large, pleasant, and spotlessly clean. The cast iron tub was wonderful! The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully served. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this B&B.

Found myself in Mackinaw City on business (!) in early April, and could not have been more pleased with my stay at the Deer Head Inn. The Innkeepers went out of their way to make me feel comfortable - even offering me Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream in the evening as I was working on my laptop in the dining room.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend, and it was the best bed and breakfast experience I've ever had! The hosts, Barry and Nancy, are very accommodating, take the time to talk with their guests, and cook amazing breakfasts! We made friends with some other guests at the Inn, and every morning at breakfast Barry would regale us... More

Hubby and I snuck away for a long weekend and stayed in "The Wilderness Room" at the Deer Head Inn - oh my gosh, what fun! Beautiful (and comfortable!) king size bed, with a stained glass window behind us. Large suite which extended into the bathroom area, with one of those two sided gas fireplaces heating both sides. Hard wood... More

We stayed in the room pictured on the TA site. It was two rooms with a private bath. It was extremely clean and the bed was decent. It did have very nice linens. We enjoyed the "stars" on the ceiling of the sitting room. The breakfast was very good, fresh fruit, eggs, and many accompaniments. We enjoyed speaking with the... More

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,...

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...
