This Bed n Breakfast was very nice and comfortable. Innkeeper was super and made us feel at home. Our room had a balcony which overlooked the harbor marina. Very relaxing watching the boats coming and going from the marina. We would definitely go back to this B&B.

We love going to the Carriage House. The beds are perfect, the staff is wonderful, and we always make new friends when we want to mingle with the other guests. The views of the harbor and the 60 second walk to the beach are constant reminders that all is well in our world.

This was one of the nicest B&B's I've stayed at. We were met by Amy the Innkeeper and our room was ready at check in time. She was very helpful telling us about South Haven's points of interest and made us feel at home. We had a room with a porch that overlooked the harbor, this was AMAZING! I read... More

This was our first B&B experience and we really enjoyed it. The innkeeper was nice and promptly showed us room at check in and was always available if we had questions. The back of the inn overlooks the harbor and the view is stunning. We played cards and sipped wine on the back patios while watching the boats come and... More

This was my our first B&B experience ever and wow! What an introduction! We stayed in the Barouche room, which was beautifully decorated. The DVD library, board games, books, magazines, and afternoon cookies & popcorn were a huge bonus. The staff were friendly and generous and ready to help with any questions we had. The best part was the view-a... More

The location and accomodations are excellent. BUT a 3:00 checkin means doors are locked until then with a note with directions to public restrooms. Likewise, breakfast is served AT 9:00 and not a minutecearlier. Breakfast was good but was totally plated- all at once. No choice for more, or, for that matter, less. This place is run for the convenience... More

We stayed at the Carriage House and visited South Haven for the first time. And a first time at a Bed and Breakfast. What a great time! The Innkeeper was smiling and hospitable and answered all our questions about places to see. Upon our arrival there was fresh popcorn and cookies...(and that popcorn scent was so intoxicating!) Our room was... More

We were excited to stay based on the reviews, but ended up being very disappointed. The room was advertised as having a large deck with a great view of the harbor. The deck was actually small and only one of the chairs had a view of the harbor. The inside of the B & B was clean but the outside... More

I will first start out by saying that if you are under the age of 50, do not book a room at this place! My husband and I chose South Haven for our honeymoon due to it being a relatively short drive from home as well as it's location near Saugatuck and southwest Michigan's "fruit belt" with all of it's...

My friend and I wanted to see the tulips in Holland, MI and found this delightful bed and breakfast 30 minutes away in South Haven. It is worth the scenic drive. Amy and Suzanne are so helpful and gracious. The 12 rooms are spacious and decorated so beautifully. Many have porches that overlook the harbor and we have spent hours... More
