We biked the Kalhaven trail from Kalamazoo (32 miles) and stayed the night in South Haven at this B&B. We were allowed to spot a car a night ahead in their parking lot. The staff was extra friendly and helpful. The facility (I believe) was built in the 1920's and has been very nicely refurbished in a very professional way-nothing... More

We stayed at the Sandcastle Inn B&B in South Haven, MI for four nights, starting on Labor Day. It was a great experience; the food, staff, cleanliness, accommodations, location, and ambiance were all wonderful. It's a short walk to the beach, there's a great pool, and large patios or decks off each room. We will definitely return.

So quaint and cute. Very clean and great location. Staff is friendly and helpful, food is wonderful and the best part of all is that they serve Starbucks coffee. High quality inn just a short walk from the beach. It was our 2nd time staying and we will be back!

My husband and I found ourselves with a last minute opportunity to plan a Friday night getaway. Sandcastle Inn provided wonderful accommodations - comfy room, beautiful porch, great breakfast and endless coffee on Saturday morning! Staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful, and the complimentary snacks and beverages were a very nice touch. PERFECT location within walking distance... More

We stayed here the Fall of 2012 the weekend after Labor Day. We had a wonderful romantic stay in the Trellis Room - the room was cozy and comfortable and a good size with a closet. It also has a nice TV and Fireplace. It had a separate entrance as well. The room is off the kitchen so you may... More

After 25 years as a meeting planner and staying in hotels all over the planet, this was our first experience with a B & B and we could not have picked a better one than Sand Castle. The room was very, very nice; the food was fantastic; but the front porch was the greatest.

My husband and I stayed at the Sand Castle Inn on a weekend in August 2014. While we enjoyed the room, porch (breakfast area), and pool, we think that the price (over $300/night including tax) was quite high. We stayed in the Majestic suite (#7). The memory-foam topped king sized bed was quite comfortable but the room lacked a table... More

This is a very well maintained and attractive property with excellent amenities, and on-site private parking. Our room (Royal Suite) was adequately furnished; bed was comfortable; effective and quiet air conditoning; clean, fresh, and inviting. Had a large porch/deck just for that room. Area is quiet, but near everything South Haven is noted for walkably. Staff was friendly and helpful;... More

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
