“Great place to head for your Mackinac trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2011

Beautiful place! We were made welcome in this B & B. We stayed in the Hemingway room. I would recommend the extra charge for the privacy and beautiful room. Breakfast was hearty and our host Barry is very knowledgeable about the area. The ferry station and downtown are literally steps away, yet the place has a neighborhood feeling.

My husband and I stayed recently at the Deer Head Inn for three nights. Innkeepers Barry and Nancy really made us feel at home and were very helpful with suggestions for things to do in the area. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. Previous Tripadvisor reviews said that the breakfasts were fabulous and they did not disappoint! We would definitely stay again if we are in the area!

We were looking for a quiet weeklong get a way and the Deerhead Inn fit the bill perfectly. It is within walking distance of everything in Mackinaw City, yet it doesn't feel like part of the busy downtown. Barry and Nancy were at the ready with tips and suggestions of things to do and see every day. Our day began with time for coffee and an enjoyable breakfast. People of all backgrounds were also present during the week we were there and everyone was made to feel welcome. We recommend a visit to the Inn and will definitely be back.(<:

5 minute walk to ferry for Mackinac Island. Excellent location for touring upper peninsula of Michigan.We stayed in the Hiawatha room which was most comfortable, large bathroom w/shower and tub. All other rooms we saw were outstanding quality as well. We would love to return to this B&B and wish there were more of this quality.

My husband and I stayed at The Deer Head Inn for our honeymoon in October 2010 and LOVED every bit of the place! Barry and Nancy are such wonderful people! The breakfast was sooooo good and the converstations at breakfast were always fun! We were originally staying in The Wilderness Room but after learning we were on our honeymoon, Barry and Nancy upgraded us to The Hemingway Room for free!! It was a lovely gift and we were very thankful! This B&B is very close to shopping, restuarants and the ferry to the island. We are planning on staying there again within the next month or so and again for our one year anniversary! We would absolutely recommend this to anyone!

Nancy and Barry are excellent B&B keepers. The rooms are immaculately clean with a very well done animal-themed decor. Our bed was very comfortable, and breakfast was scrumptious. The extra bonus is to be able to walk to restaurants and all the shops in downtown Mackinaw City.
