Deer Run Bed & Breakfast Review

Key deer wander the grounds of this beachfront bed-and-breakfast, set on a quiet street lined with buttonwoods and mangroves. Innkeepers Jen DeMaria and Harry Appel were way ahead of the green-lodging game when they opened in 2004. They continue to make strides in environmental- and guest-friendliness, and have been recognized for their sustainability efforts. Two large oceanfront rooms are decorated in soothing earth tones and furnished with mahogany and pecan-wood furnishings. The beach-level unit is decorated in key lime and flamingo-pink, with wicker furnishings, and the garden-view room is an eclectic mix that includes Victorian farmhouse doors serving as the headboard of the queen-size bed. Guests share a living room and a veranda. The mostly organic breakfast menu is suitable for vegans. Guest rooms are stocked with organic cotton towels and cruelty-free toiletries.
