The staff of the Yelton is exemplary, from the cheerful Check-in tour guide to the expertly serving breakfast staff! Elaine... More

This place is unique. From the buffet breakfast including French toast bake, scrambled eggs with broccoli and sprouting seeds to the elegantly decorated Victorian style bedrooms, if you want charming and different, this is it. It's relatively expensive but this is a prime example of getting what you pay for. I certainly won't forget it and in a country where... More

Yelton Manor has the best of everything! The staff is extremely friendly, and their attention to detail is second to none! The gardens are gorgeous and well cared for, and the food… out of this world!!! Everything is made fresh daily, and deliciously healthy. If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful surroundings inside the Manor, the beach is... More

Enjoy a perfect West Michigan waterside sunset... then stay the night: Yelton Manor. Thank you, Elaine... More

Our girls trips to South Haven begin with our stay at Yelton Manor. The service and attention to detail is outstanding. The gardens are a wonderful place to soak in the atmosphere. Being across the street from the beach allows early morning walks to begin your day. The inviting common rooms allow us the opportunity to visit together. Many wonderful... More

Yelton Manor is nestled in absolutely gorgeous gardens that you can tell are given a lot of love. Inside, the public rooms are filled with 100s, if not 1,000s of books and DVDs if you want to just chill. Or if the weather is sunny and warm, the beach is right across the street, and a walk to town for... More

Revisited Yelton Manor again this Spring - a wonderful birthday trip - and the Manor was the highlight of the weekend. Innkeepers Elaine and Robert are so gracious, and the staff is so friendly - it was a pure delight. We stayed in a different room this time vs. our "regular" favorite room - but found the different rooms wonderful... More
