We live in the Philadelphia area and this is our place to go to relax and rejuvenate. We have been here several times and plan to go many more. If we take a 1/2 day off on Friday, we can be there in 2 hours and sit out on the porch before having dinner and listening to great jazz. Every... More

We went here for dinner and music on a Friday night. I must say, Walt Bibinger and Vicki Doney delivered. What an awesome duo. I would definitely love to see these two play together again. Vicki also sang the song Ain't No Mountain High Enough accompanied by her husband on the piano. The food was awesome and we love our... More

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
