We stayed at the Deer Head, and took advantage of their jazz package. For $199, this included a double room, music charge, a $65 credit towards food at dinner, and $15 credit towards breakfast in the morning. The room was comfortable, if a bit plain, but immaculately clean, with a lovely bathroom with plenty of hot water and strong water pressure, something often lacking in the many b & b's we have stayed at. Dinner was delicious - absoluetly the best cooked salmon I have ever had anywhere, with a tasty risotto and fresh veggies. My husband enjoyed the pasta special, linguini with a beet-based sauce, roasted beets, pickled onions and goat cheese, to which he added grilled shrimp. Very unusual, but very tasty. Music is from 7 - 11, after which we climbed up to our room (be warned, 4 floors, no elevator), and slept soundly. Excellent air conditioning, which was essential, since temps were in the high 80s. Breakfast the next morning was very tasty, we ordered the eggs benedict and spinach, feta, artichoke and olive omelette. Friendly service, altogether a very enjoyable getaway at a bargain price. Thank you!
