I stayed at South Cliff for one evening while on route to another location. I was warmly greeted, shown my charming room, given a tour of the cozy seating areas and even offered a glass of wine as my welcome to this lovely home. While I wasn't up for the wine, I did enjoy a fabulous sun set and great... More

We stayed at the South Cliff Inn for 3 nights and I have to say that we absolutely loved our stay there. The house is adorable and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The owner Bill makes homemade breakfast every day and it was delicious! We were there for the 70.3 Ironman in Benton Harbor and the Inn was... More

Stayed here for 3 days for a well deserved break and a friends wedding. What a great place to relax after a day exploring the St. Joseph area. Checked in just in time for cheese and wine. How perfect, a glass of wine and relaxing on the deck with a die for view of Lake Michigan.Breakfasts were delicious and filling.... More

We were fortunate enough to get a room for one night and would have stayed longer if available. We had a delightful experience from the moment we arrived until departure. Our room felt so welcoming; the view was fabulous! The sunset was perfect ;) The hosts were very kind, with a passion for what they do. Breakfast was yummy; served... More

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was comfortable and clean. There was wine and cheese at 5pm each day - what a treat! The breakfasts were amazing! The innkeeper provided delicious gluten-free baked goods with breakfast. The other baked goodies were excellent, according to my husband. The garden was pretty and it had a nice lookout over the...

Had a nice two-night stay here in June of 2014. We had 3 rooms. The main attraction of this place is the backyard, which has a large porch with plenty of seating and another smaller deck further out in the backyard that looks over Lake Michigan. Nice trees. Quiet and peaceful place to have a drink and watch the sunset.... More

We were attending a concert by Brass Transit at the college with friends and stayed at the South Cliff Inn. The rooms were comfortable, very clean, and a very good buffet style breakfast was served. We enjoyed our winter getaway although it was too short! Dinner recommendations were excellent and the innkeeper wonderful.

Just spent one night on our way farther north but it was well worth it. Stayed in the Gable room, with a queen bed and mock fireplace. Everything was super clean, the inn keeper was amazingly nice and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and enough food to really get you full. You cannot get down to the water from the inn... More

Wanted a quick getaway and chose South Cliff based on reviews we found there. Bill did a great job and had excellent recommendations for dining and activities. Wine and cheese at 5PM and 10AM were great and provided a chance to visit with other guests and share recommendations for local attractions.

We spent our anniversary night in the Sunset Room (thanks again for the upgrade, Bill!). The room is wonderful, with a breath-taking view of the lake. The bed was terrific -- very comfortable, the pillows were perfect, the linens luxurious. We loved the deck near the cliff at the western boundary of the property; what a great place to enjoy...
