We enjoyed our overnight visit very much. We stayed in the Hemingway room which has a 2 person jacuzzi tub, a fireplace, and a sitting area. The bed was very comfortable. Barry and Nancy are both very nice and helpful about things to do and places to eat in the area. The B & B is located in a quiet... More

Deer Head Lodge has an excellent location, just off the heart of the community, bvut still quiet. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfasts are outstanding, and the prices are among the best in Mackinaw City.

If you have an idea of how a B&B should be this is it. Beautiful rooms, great breakfast and a great location! What more could you ask for? Fantastic mounts all about the house of deer, pheasants.... Barry and his wife take time to be sure their guests are happy. We were very happy!

We stayed for a night in the Wilderness Room - a spacious and cozy suite on the 2nd floor of this home. The temperature outside was cold and the fireplace in the room was especially delightful. The king bed was comfortable and the room was decorated tastefully...so relaxing and quiet...clean enough that I even walked barefoot in the rooms!! Barry... More

We recently stayed two nights in the Wilderness Room at Deer head Lodge. My husband and I were impressed with the size of the room and the warm, cozy feel to it. We also appreciated how quiet the room was in the evening (which we could not say about the hotel we stayed at the following evening). As other reviewers... More

This was our first time staying at a B&B after being married for 35 years!! We absolutely loved the time we spent there. We will definately go back. Barry and Nancy are extremely friendly and accomodating. They make sure everything is perfect for your stay there. From the food (absolutely wonderful stuffed French Toast!), the 2 room Bear Room w/... More

Best Eggs Benedict I've ever had - and the accommodations were very nice too. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next day was also excellent. Barry and Nancy were friendly and knowledgeable and happy to make recommendations. Location couldn't have been better -- an easy walk to attractions in Mackinaw City and to the ferry to Mackinac Island. All around excellent... More

My husband and I had never stayed in a B&B before. We took the recommendation of a friend and decided to give one a try. We are so very glad we did! The Deer Head Inn was perfect! Barry and Nancy are so nice. We were greeted by Nancy who checked us in and gave us the tour of the... More

we just returned from a whirlwind trip around the Michigan UP and Door County, Wisconsin. Stayed two nights at the Deer Head Lodge in Mackinaw City, MI and found the inn keepers to be a vast source of local knowledge as well as great cooks. Our room was on the small side but very well equipped and maintained. But the... More

We are actually still in the Hiawatha Room checking out soon. I couldn't wait to post this review. We did a Bed and Breakfast tour of the area and this was the BEST all around experience. The Inn isn't your typical old fashioned B&B, although it is almost 100 years old. So if you're looking for that victorian feel, it... More
