“Great mini vacation, we'll be back again!”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

My husband and I stayed here last September for a short trip to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Hemmingway Room, it definitely lived up to it's charm and coziness as displayed in the photos on the website. Barry was very informative on other ways to explore the Mackinaw area other than all the usual tourist things to be done during your stay. We took a scenic drive through the Trail of Trees, stopped and had lunch at an amazing Polish restaurant called Leggs Inn and found an amazing bakery that had the best peanut butter brownies! Aside from tourist information, we had some great conversations and heard some great stories from Barry as well. And the breakfast put on by them was wonderful, eggs benedict, and baked apples, so yummy!

Room Tip: Hemmingway room was spectacular!

As you can read in the other reviews this is a beautiful house, in the center of it all but off the main street. The hosts are a real pleasure and a trove of information and assistance. Great breakfast is served by the hosts that create an amazing atmosphere.
We cycled a long distance to get to Mackinaw City and Barry and Nancy went out of their way to assure that we had a very secure place for our bicycles and a quick access to the room and a great choice between a very good, large and clean shower and a real clawfoot tub.
The bed was very comfortable and the room was decorated in a way that situate you up-north with strong natural and native American motives.

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!
