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...

The wife and I stopped in while vacationing. Enjoyed the different musicians playing as well as the singer! Very good atmosphere. We also had dinner. The selection was limited but adequate. I didn't notice any handicap accessible entry. My wife did have a difficult time handling all the stairs. But nevertheless she enjoyed herself. This would be a place we...

We went on a Thursday for the Jazz jam session. We had a couple of drinks that were reasonably priced. We did not have any food. The music was terrific! After the house Trio played a set, all comers were invited to the stage and the audience was treated to about 10 t o 12 guest artists who took turns...

This was simply delightful in every way! The staff was both efficient and entertaining, the room and the building is full of charm, and the music was amazing! We stayed for one night on our way from Baltimore to NYC and we really can't wait to come back. Next time, we plan to bring friends and family with us!!

We actually do not sleep over here. We go for the music. Our waitress, Jenna, is always amazing. Skip Wilkins, piano; Tony Marino, bass; Walt Bibinger, guitar were awesome together. Food was good with the exception of shrimp scampi, way to much lemon. You want a nice night out listening to music go here.

We,d never been to the Deer Head Inn before but we'll be back! Everyone was so friendly - bartender Jen, server Erica, etc. Great place with a lot of history and a great old style room - Bill Charlap was the draw for us! Wonderful well prepared dinner (French chicken breast for me, salmon for my constant dining companion) and...
