Go soon as there aren't too many places like this left in the good old U.S. of A. Get the Jazz Package and enjoy the dinner, show and next morning's breakfast. Mrs. M and I checked in at the bar and met our new best friend Jim, the bartender. He showed us to our room while telling us all about... More

Great jazz, make a reservation for dinner, lots of locals who seem to get the best tables, great food and service, charming Inn and town but we did not stay as we had a reservation elsewhere... Definitely would return again when in the area... Very close to the AT

We come here quite often so I can have an Irish coffee with my breakfast. We usually split the Mexican omelet and have a muffin as well. We enjoy the light atmosphere and the outdoor seating. The morning cute is what it's all about, the service is good and the food is always hot and prompt. Good place for locals... More

Unique destination with world class jazz artists performing in a small, historic inn steps from the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware River. Peaceful during the day, but the real draw is the chance to see and hear great jazz musicians in a quiet setting. The air is great here.

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Inn and absolutely loved it. Although the inn is like visiting, one's great-grandmother's house, the accommodations were clean and comfortable. However, that is not what one goes to the DHI for. One goes for the fabulous food and jazz. The menu, albeit short, had an excellent mix from which to choose.... More

We wanted to get away for a weekend of autumn leaves, hiking, and music, so we booked two nights at the Deer Head Inn in Delaware Water Gap, PA. The Deer Head Inn is at 5 Main Street in town and is famous for its jazz programs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The Inn's website claims that the Deer... More

When we arrived no one was there to meet us so we walked around and when we came back someone was there. We entered through the bar and paid for our room in the dark bar. The bar is only open on the weekends for the jazz. The porch is in need of sweeping and cleaning, giving first impression that... More

This Inn is a quaint old hotel that made us feel like we were stepping into another era. We could almost sense the generations of visitors who had been there before us. Upon arriving, all the doors were locked and we could not figure out how to get in and register. This did not happen to only us, as we... More

This 1850 inn has terrific entertainment, very good food and phenomonal entertainment. On the recommendation of a friend we decided to stop for an overnight on the way to our cottage in the Endless Mountains. It was our good fortune to happen upon a night when the artist was an amazing young pianist, grammy nominated, who blew our socks off.... More
