a slice of vegan heaven
Posted on 03 / 16 / 2013
Where to start? Deer Run is a slice of heaven. Very apropos that we stayed in the "Heaven" room, upstairs and oceanfront with a lovely screen porch to enjoy the views from. There is a saltwater pool and spa as well as kayaks available for the ocean and a pass to the nearby Bahia Honda beach. The entire inn is absolutely vegan, so it's lovely to enjoy a vacation without a single worry. It's also green as much as possible, from the landscaping to the flushable composting toilet to the curtains and bedding. The breakfasts are organic and divine. They alternate days between sweet and savory. We got pancakes, frittata with potatoes and waffles. Everything is served with a baked good (i.e. muffin, scone) and fruit. Smoothies and great coffee too! There are Key deer all over the island and they are quite friendly, so it's hard to resist feeding them (it's against the law too). Best of all are the innkeepers, Jen and Harry. They are vegans trying to share the message with their community. Most guests are not vegan either, so it's a wonderful opportunity to plant seeds. As fellow vegans, we enjoyed chatting with them and hearing about their experiences in the Keys. Defintely take them up on their recommendations! We hope to someday return as it was difficult to leave.
all vegan, wonderful innkeepers, lovely location
