Our stay at the Carriage House was perfect in every way. The home and furnishings were very neat and clean and looked like they were right out of a storybook. The grounds were attractive and well cared for. The staff was kind and helpful. We stayed in the Brewster Room on the first floor. It was clean and the bed... More

When we visit South Haven area (at least once a year) we always choose to stay at CHH. The hosts are so friendly and helpful. The rooms and house beautiful; we opt for a balcony which we really enjoy. The breakfasts are out of this world. Location is perfect for walking the beach, channel and marina. Thank you CHH for...

Family run and the little details show. Antique stained glass, tea sets, pitchers, and other art are in abundance throughout the house and in the guest rooms. Service is excellent. Gourmet breakfasts were absolutely phenomenal featuring unique pancakes, sconces, egg dishes etc. Can enjoy the harbor view during breakfast inside, or can sit on the deck outside and take in...

A cozy and clean room comfortable bed, a great breakfast. The view of the harbor second to none.

Another visit is a given for this... More

This Inn is located in a perfect location. It's walking distance to the beach, the marina, and town. It is very decorated in a very Victorian style and is very charming. We appreciated the "adults only" policy and it was very peaceful and quiet. Loved the patio and the deck overlooking the marina. The breakfasts were amazing- so delicious -... More

We have been returning to the Carriage House for some time. Repeatedly, we return for the charm of the place, the ambience, the solitude, the staff, the 5 star breakfasts and the close, hassle free access to the beach. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with period furnishings and immaculate. We love the views of the harbor. We like the walkability... More

We decided to stay overnight in South Haven with no reservations. We found there was an open room at the Carriage House. We quickly took it and it was wonderful. The accommodations and service were excellent. We will stay there again in the future and highly recommend this B&B

Beautiful third floor room with a fantastic view from our own balcony. We had a stunning view of the river and all the yachts, and only a one-block walk to the beach at Lake Michigan. Easy walk to the drawbridge and lots of fun bar/restaurants right on the water. Breakfast was terrific and complimentary snacks were appreciated.

Staff are wonderful. Food is 5 Star! Entire house is extremely clean and beautifully decorated. Location is convenient to beach and downtown plus quiet. This is a wonderful place to relax. I always look forward to a return visit.

After returning to the Carriage House for the third time, it overdue to write a glowing review! It is a great location in South Haven, close to town overlooking the marina and one block to the beautiful beach. The breakfast is always wonderful, decor charming, owner and staff amenable.
