“Incrediblly romantic getaway - there is no other place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

We had the most wonderful and incredibly romantic time ever, even though it was in the heart of the winter, it was amazing. The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast is a magnificently beautiful place with a friendly, sweet and exceptionally attentive staff. It is an easy drive from Indiana and if you want to get away as a couple and truly enjoy moment, this is the best place. The coffe, breakfast and treats are are scrumptious. You cannot find a more wonderful B&B place. I hope that we can go there again soon and perhaps they will be open in the winter, as that is when we prefer to head out to South Haven.

Just returned home from our annual visit to Yelton Manor. As we expected, Robert, Elaine, and their staff were warm and cordial. Once again, our hosts achieved the perfect balance between attentiveness and offering a quiet refuge for their guests to unwind. The Manor's beautifully appointed common areas provide a welcoming spot to relax and perhaps browse the extensive book collection after a busy day enjoying Lake Michigan and the nearby town of South Haven. We look forward to our next visit, for we have come to feel as if Yelton Manor is our home away from home!

Visited in June '12 and had such a splendid, wonderful time. There is tranquility here - and it flows from the owners who have truly fostered a place of peace for body, mind and soul. Elaine and Robert care deeply about their guests, the quality of their stay and about the entire community. The cares peel away as you enter, and stay at bay while you're there. If you feel like finding that center, and nurturing it, then stay with the Yelton Manor. After repeated visits, you'll be family and always look forward to going back. Enjoy!

Room Tip: The Lily Room is "the rock star room". It's the beautiful room tucked away in the cor...

Staying at Yelton Manor is always wonderful - from the beautiful gardens, to the breathtaking house to the amazing sweet treats. Elaine and Robert couldn't be more gracious hosts and their amazing staff pays utmost attention to every detail. Amazing homemade treats are always beckoning and breakfast is homemade and healthy, not to be missed. The french toast casserole is my hands down favorite. The house is so cozy and absolutely immaculate, not to mention steps from the beach. Staying at Yelton Manor is always a rejuvenating rereat.

Room Tip: The Jasmine room is my favorite because of the huge soaking tub and the shape of the room, but the R...

We had a relaxing, beautiful getaway at Yelton Manor, an easy two and a half hour drive from the north shore of Chicago. Elaine and Robert were expert hosts, making us feel welcome and comfortable throughout our stay. Breakfast each morning was fresh and delicious, and the little snacks and treats around the house were a great bonus! We stayed in the Forsythia room, which was very comfortable and clean. There are many cozy nooks in the Manor for reading and relaxing. The location was perfect: across the street from beautiful Lake Michigan and white sandy beaches and a five minute walk to downtown South Haven. We only had to walk a few steps from our front door to see the spectacular July 4th fireworks display! The inn keepers are very well connected in town and could get us in to some of the best restaurants. Thank you Elaine and Robert for an awesome holiday!

We were on our way from Chicago to Northern Michigan, so this was an overnight stay. The hosts were amazing, from making our reservation to saying goodbye! Comfortable and immaculate! Delicious food and treats and wonderful stories....beautiful garden. My version of the perfect Bed and Breakfast!

We had a great time at the Yelton Manor as we celebrated our 11 th anniversary.... From the beautiful gardens to the exquisite rooms/ eclectic decorating in the home, to the friendly, vivacious hosts... We would return again in a heartbeat. Within walking distance to town and across the street from beautiful Lake Michigan, how could you go wrong?
