Stopped here for two nights to take a rest from the Appalachian Trail before heading into the rocks of Pennsylvania. Very comfortable rooms and good location both on the AT and close to eating and other establishments. I think there were only three of us since it's a bit early in the season. My biggest regret was not being here...

Four of us went to Deer Head Inn for a couple of nights. There was a bit of a delay checking in as the only person available was the cook. We made good on the time though and went for a short drive to Shawnee Mountain Resort; which was very nice. So we toured that area for a bit and...

I wish I could give this place a 3.5. I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday because they are known for their jazz performances and he loves jazz. We are 24 and 30. Overall our experience was a positive one and we had a lot of fun but to give a completely honest opinion I have a couple nit...

Went her based on a recommendation from a local. Was told there was a brunch. Unfortunately there was no brunch. However the atmosphere was relaxing with jazz playing in the background. Staff was very friendly. Menu was your basic breakfast selections. Food didn't take long and was decent. You had a view of the little borough of the Delaware water...

The Deer Head Inn is awesome. This is why I love the US. You can go to a small town and find a great bar with great jazz! Mary, the owner/manager was so friendly and helpful. We decided to go there with our daughter who has a food allergy and Mary made sure we had nothing to worry about. Our...

Found this in Oct 2009 for a place to stay for East Stroudsburg Univ homecoming. Best off the beaten path place to stay. tons of history at the Inn and in town. Simple accommodations, good food and great Jazz. Be mindful of the expectations of a Jazz club, this is true deal. No chatter, no loud banter. This is true...

This Inn has been around a long time, the foundation has settled leaving some area floors uneven but I felt it added to the experience. A live 3 piece jazz band playing during a delicious meal. Breakfast is full dining and fabulous with a live guitarist. The rooms and Baths modern and very comfortable.

A group friends went to support the daughter of a friend who is a rising jazz singer/song writer and was performing for the night. The music was awesome and the sound system was pretty good. The food I must say was average nothing to write home about, and the prices were good, over all it was a nice time. The...

The building dates from the mid-19th century, perhaps 1853, so it is old, but the rooms have been updated in keeping with the sense of the building. We have stayed here several times, and this time in suite 301, which features a four-poster bed in a room with pocket doors so guests could seal off the room if desired, and...
