I stayed at the Deer Lodge for several months, while waiting to move into my new home. The room was very nice and clean, with amazing views. The staff was always friendly and helpful, and made you feel really welcome. It is like a little piece of paradise with the beautiful gardens, as well as close to shopping and the... More

We stayed there for 2 nights for a family wedding in Mill Bay. Staff address questions immediately and are very helpful. They have lovely gardens and beautiful views front and back. They have a small balcony with each room that is private and enjoyable to see the grounds and relax. Our room was large and very comfortable. We enjoyed our... More

Recently I had a rather lengthy and pleasurable stay at Deer Lodge. All staff members were very friendly, accommodating and professional. I had a fabulous ocean view from my private balcony which I'll never forget. You can easily sense the pride of ownership and accomplishment of staff members as the grounds and gardens are absolutely beautiful! Thank you Deer Lodge:)... More

GORGEOUS views, and the staff were super helpful!! We had our wedding in Mill Bay and some of our guests stayed there, and all of them had nothing but great things to say. It's very quiet and peaceful, rooms are a good size!

I booked 3 rooms for myself and 2 out of town guests who were attending my son's wedding nearby. There were also a few guests at our son' wedding who also stayed here. Can't speak for them but for us it was a great experience. Sure, it's out of date somewhat but who cares. We were there to rest and... More

This motel/hotel is a place we use ONLY when our daughter who lives close, has an event and her beds are full. It really needs to be updated. It has n a lovely view however a lot of trees are too overgrown. The rooms are large, clean, and have a fireplace in them which would be cozy if it was... More

The flowers in front of the rooms patio were very pretty. There were flowers everywhere! It had no phones in number 18 where we spent the rest of our... More
