We stayed in the Hemingway room at the beginning of the season for two nights. The negatives are the walls are very thin. Could hear other people come in, talk, and on the stairs. I could not believe the noise on the street as well...people going to and from the Crossing, very loud. The single most disconcerting thing was the street cleaner (very large, huge machine) that went up and down the street at 5 in the morning. The positives were that this place was immaculate. The breakfast was okay, standard and the owner did ask for dietary restrictions. Also, be aware the owner likes to talk.

My husband and I stayed in the lighthouse room for 3 nights. Our only complaints were that the bed was a little too firm and the walls were kind of thin. The Inn is very well kept and the rooms clean. Breakfast was amazing and different every day - don't expect simple pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Breakfast conversation was always interesting and everyone was so friendly.

The owners were great. Breakfast was exceptional! The location was only one block from the ferry to Mackinac Island and only 300 ft from the main shops in town. We stayed in the "Henley room" which was very roomy. Would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at Deer Head Inn was our first B&B stay in the States, although we have stayed in several excellent B&B's in Europe. Barry and Nancy Dean are terrific hosts who are most knowledable and helpfull with tips and suggestions on the area. The Inn is spotlessly clean and well furnished. Breakfasts are gourmet. Check out their website deerhead.com - the real thing is better than the pictures. We heartedly recommend a stay at Deer Head and will be back ourselves.

My husband and I stayed at the Deer Head Inn Bed & Breakfast in Mackinaw City, MI and give it our heartiest endorsement. The owners, Barry and Nancy, were great hosts and very engaging. We stayed in the Bear Room, which had its own bathroom, bedroom, and a sitting room with an extraordinary, almost magical star-painted ceiling. Our room, with two TVs and WIFI, was very clean. The home-like atmosphere was comforting after lots of sight-seeing, and the location made it easy to walk to our destinations. We especially enjoyed Barry and Nancy's warmth throughout our stay. The conversations around the breakfast table (wonderful food) and on the front porch added to the charm.
