The staff was really nice which was great. We came for the film festival and they had things well in hand. Breakfast was good. The room was clean and well sized. I liked the semi-private balcony and access to a pool. Close enough to downtown to be able to get there quickly without having any of the attendant noise and... More

We would like to thank this guest for visiting the Sand Castle and for taking the time to review the Inn. We look forward to seeing this guest again at the Inn. Just wanted to make a clarification about the “clanking pipes, expected in an older place.” The Sand Castle Inn is one of the historic buildings in South Haven... More

We stayed three nights at the Sandcastle in South Haven Mi.. The facility was impeccably clean and the employees of the Inn were extremely helpful. Always trying to please us. Not that they were annoying, just enough so that you felt welcome. The location is perfect. So close to the beach and yet close to the river and shopping and... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a B&B in South Haven extremely close to the lake, an outdoor equipment rental, and walking distance to the downtown strip. Sand Castle Inn was perfect for us. We were able to enjoy casual breakfast each morning, rent equipment throughout the day, and then walk to dinner each evening. Couldn't have asked for... More

In town on the Memorial Day Holiday visiting friends. We only needed a place for just 2 nights. Most places required a 3 night minimum. Sand Castle did not have that requirement. We stayed in the "Trellis Room". It has a private, ground level entrance with a very small patio/deck with seating and a small table. Our entrance into the... More

LOVE the Sand Castle Inn! As soon as we walked in the door we felt like we were at "home away from home". The house is beautiful, our suite (the Tower Suite) was lovely and oh so comfy! Carlene is an absolute sweetheart and so is her mom! Breakfast was DELICIOUS. We loved the whole atmosphere of the Inn. Can't... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sand Castle Inn! We stayed in the Tower Suite. The room was very clean and very cozy! Loved the fireplace that you can turn on just by flipping a switch! The innkeeper was very nice and the breakfast that was prepared for us in the morning was delicious, too! We highly recommend staying... More

I loved being there in the summer (of 2012)and using their secluded pool. Being partially paralyzed, I appreciated that they had first floor rooms AND that the pool had STAIRS & a RAILING. I'd return every summer if the price was lower.

The location and outside of this B and B is great. The inside is only OK. But our problem had to do with the fact that (1) the owner does not live in town, nor on the premises. If a guest has a problem like we did one must go through the Innkeeper or other employees--all of which were not... More

We would like to thank the guest for visiting the Sand Castle and would like to encourage the guest to visit again at either our Inn or other area bed and breakfast inns. If there had been no power outage, all of the guest complaints would not have occurred. A tremendous storm hit South Haven on the first night, Wednesday,... More

We were looking for a B&B between Holland and South Haven to stay at for one night. There aren't too many that will allow a one night stay but the Sand Castle will allow it this time of year. We booked the Majestic room on the 2nd floor with a two story turret ceiling. The room was spacious, clean and... More
