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

This place is a gem! I looked and looked for a reasonably price place close to Saugatuk where we could stay for only 1 night and this fit the bill. The outside of the inn is beautifully maintained with a lovely garden and wrap around porch with rockers. Brenda showed us to our room, the Tapestry Room. Big bed, beautiful... More

This was our first trip to South Haven and the Sand Castle Inn. We could not have been more pleased with our choice! From the moment we checked in until we left, Brenda, Carlene and the staff made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Our room (the Royal Suite) was spotless and perfect with a huge private... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in August, 2013. The Inn is beautiful, great location to town and activities. The pool was a welcome and relaxing feature. The staff, especially Brenda, were friendly and would go out of their way to assist guests. For example, when we first checked in, the central AC was not working in our... More

This is a great b and b. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts on the porch. This b and b has a pool which is very nice. The afternoon treats and evening cookies were a pleasant surprise. Located one block from the beach and an easy walk to town we will definitely return.
