“Nice Getaway weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2007

After looking at the prices for the "budget" hotels in Mackinaw City, I stumbled upon the Deer Head and immediately booked a 2 night stay. I booked a 2 room suite thinking it would be nice to have the extra space, but we never really used the extra space as we fell into bed exhausted after sightseeing both days.
I thought the breakfast was great, but I had mentioned when booking that my boyfriend doesn't eat eggs and he wasn't offered any real alternatives for breakfast either morning.
Overall, I would definitely stay again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2006

We were staying elsewhere, but while walking around, we met the owners of the B&B. They were very friendly and invited us to tour their Inn. It really is a beautiful place and each room has a different theme. They are all quite large, too.

We weren't there for breakfast of course, but some of the people staying there were saying very complementary things about it. The Inn is very convenient to all downtown attractions and a very short distance to the ferry docks. You can't see the water from the inn, but it is an easy walk away. Several good restaurants are close by, also.

I doubt that anyone would be disappointed with a stay at Dear Head.

  • Liked — As I said, we didn't stay there, just toured it.
  • Disliked — Nothing to dislike that I saw
Stayed June 2005, traveled as a couple
