Everything was first rate here. Very pretty and comfortable rooms. The gardens were beautiful and a nice spot to sit in the sun and read and relax. We will come back again. Elaine and Robert were very helpful in recommending places to eat. We tried Taste and really enjoyed the food there.

We have stayed at the Yelton Manor and Guest House several times, both at the Manor and most recently at the Guest House. The accommodations are beautifully appointed and immaculate, the location is excellent across the street from Lake Michigan and walking distance to the downtown South Haven shops, restaurants, and pier, and the atmosphere is both relaxing and very...

My son & I were fortunate enough to be able to spend 2 nights at the Manor. My teenager found plenty to keep him occupied on the beach and in town and I greatly enjoyed the chance to relax for a while. The owners and their staff are wonderful people and gave us plenty of suggestions for ways to spend... More

We have been coming to Yelton Manor for almost twenty years, on and off as opportunity presents itself. This is the perfect place for a romantic long weekend getaway. The owners, Elaine and Robert go all out to make each of our stays memorable. Our favorite is the Dewey room but all of the rooms we've stayed in have been... More

This B&B is truly a step above! Innkeepers Elaine & Robert have found the perfect blend of luxury and comfort, hospitality and oasis. The rooms are immaculate and charming, but high tech with strong wifi, blue tooth speakers, and all the latest DVDs for your in room viewing. The grounds have an amazing Sun & Stars Patio for dining on... More

In one word, our stay at the Yelton Manor was outstanding! My husband and I were recently in South Haven for a wedding and wanted to stay in a bed & breakfast rather than a hotel. Having never been to the area before, I couldn't be more pleased with our choice of accommodations. The rooms were luxurious and the property... More

What a great, friendly, wonderful place! Being greeted on arrival by one of the smiling, helpful staff made for a great start to a fun relaxing stay! The Gardens are amazing even in early May! We love the themed rooms and the food is to die for! The brownies are a revelation! Its obvious that Robert, Elaine and Cindy love... More

From our moment of arrival, we felt so welcomed and pampered! Robert and Elaine promote enrichment of soul and body in a most amazing setting. Details were not overlooked in food or decor. They set the standards for B & B. Perfectly located across street from Lake Michigan beach and near downtown South Haven without the noise provided a most... More

Just returned home from another delightful visit. My husband and I are already missing Innkeepers Elaine and Robert's enthusiam, attention to detail, and extraordinary pampering! We love unwinding at the beautiful Manor and are excited about the new changes to the gardens. Breakfast is always delicious and healthy! Looking forward to returning soon!

I have stayed at Yelton Manor three times, and the place is fantastic. I stay for the wonderful house and the wide selection of books, not the innkeeper. If you've read the negative reviews about Elaine, I can assure you that most of them I believe to be true and I can relate...she is the most unfriendly innkeeper I've ever... More

loveandhardwork, Owner at Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

I appreciate this kind review of our beautiful inn. As the joyful, hands on owner/Innkeeper here for nearly 30 years of love and service, I am saddened that anyone would consider me "unfriendly". I love people and I love this ministry. More
