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

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

Literally everywhere you look in Yelton Manor there is something charming to behold! Reading nooks, cozy fireplace, restful porch, and books, books, books galore. The food was fabulous (try the lemon curd and the chutney)!! Huge DVD lending library with many new and old movies. There are so many excellent reasons for all the glowing reviews here. But what surprised... More

Perfect getaway from reality. Great romantic weekend away. The innkeepers Robert and Elaine were amazing so friendly and helpful. South haven has so much to offer views are enchanting. Breakfast was the best I have ever had. Can't wait to stay again. I will surely be back soon.

My stay at Yelton Manor was absolutely the best two days of my year! Fabulous homemade appetizers in the afternoon and an outstanding delicious brunch. Thousands of books you can read while relaxing in beautiful antiques. Everywhere you look, there are special touches -flowers, little candies, gorgeous art work, and delightful music. I will never stay anywhere else while on... More

My husband and I were married in South Haven in August, 2014 and were so delighted that we hosted our closest family and friends at Yelton Manor B&B. Everything was perfect and the hosts were helpful in every detail. The food was very fresh and healthy and inspired us all. The inn is gorgeous, very peaceful (all adults, ahhhhhh) and... More
