“Weekend getaway at the Deerhead Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The Deerhead Inn was a very nice B&B. One of the nicest I've stayed in. Our room was spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. Every room was tastefully decorated. Nancy and Barry were gracious hosts and the breakfasts were delicious. The snowy weather made it a winter wonderland. My only complaints is there isn't much happening in Mackinac City this time of year, but it still was a nice getaway. i loved the fireplaces in all of the rooms. It was a perfect spot for our family get together.

Room Tip: All the rooms were nice. i don't think you can go wrong in any room

This is a B & B everything one would expect from an inn! Barry and Nancy were so friendly and accomodating. They sure know their Macinack history and are more than willing to sit a spell and chat with you. Excellent location to walk into town, to the ferry, to the park...
Our room was roomy, yet cozy, with a sitting room off to one side - complete with fireplace. Each room has its own bath. We stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed each breakfast Nancy made. Her recipes are to die for! If you have the chance to stay in Macinack City, make sure you stay at the Deer Head Lodge!

We enjoyed our overnight visit very much. We stayed in the Hemingway room which has a 2 person jacuzzi tub, a fireplace, and a sitting area. The bed was very comfortable. Barry and Nancy are both very nice and helpful about things to do and places to eat in the area. The B & B is located in a quiet area yet it is a very short walk to shopping and the bridge. The breakfast the morning we were there was excellent and included eggs benedict. I enjoy staying at B & B's and this is one of the nicest rooms I have stayed in. A great place to stay in Mackinaw City!

Deer Head Lodge has an excellent location, just off the heart of the community, bvut still quiet. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfasts are outstanding, and the prices are among the best in Mackinaw City.

If you have an idea of how a B&B should be this is it. Beautiful rooms, great breakfast and a great location! What more could you ask for? Fantastic mounts all about the house of deer, pheasants.... Barry and his wife take time to be sure their guests are happy. We were very happy!

We stayed for a night in the Wilderness Room - a spacious and cozy suite on the 2nd floor of this home. The temperature outside was cold and the fireplace in the room was especially delightful. The king bed was comfortable and the room was decorated tastefully...so relaxing and quiet...clean enough that I even walked barefoot in the rooms!! Barry and Nancy were friendly and eager to meet all our needs - the breakfast in the AM was delicious and the conversation at the table was enjoyable as well. Would recommend this delightful spot - close to ferry docks and right near downtown.

Room Tip: Wilderness Room - cozy and romantic

We recently stayed two nights in the Wilderness Room at Deer head Lodge. My husband and I were impressed with the size of the room and the warm, cozy feel to it. We also appreciated how quiet the room was in the evening (which we could not say about the hotel we stayed at the following evening). As other reviewers noted, the breakfasts were incredible. My husband even raved about it and he can be a picky eater. The inn's location was within walking distance to the shops, restaurants, ferries, bridge and lighthouse. If heading to Mackinac Island, we recommend the Seabiscuit Cafe for lunch. Best sweet potato fries I ever had.
