I have never been to a place like Yelton Manor. It is awesome. The rooms, service, food and extra touches are like no other. Elaine and Robert tend to their guests like they are special family members. The book collection is amazing, and lots of nooks and crannies to take advantage of reading. A great DVD/VHS movie collection as well. I look forward to my next visit to Yelton Manor.....soon, I hope!

Our stay at Yelton Manor was just what we needed. A get-a-way nested in the quiet, artistic community of South Haven, MI. The town is filled with quaint shops and cafes. The manor’s interior is elegantly decorated and the gardens are some of the finest you will ever see. The ambience alone made for the perfect romantic setting.

For my husband's first weekend off from a busy football season, we decided to get away for a relaxing weekend at a Bed and Breakfast. Having never stayed at one I did a lot of research. We found the Yelton Manor and truly believe we found the very best! I can't say enough about the comfortable and very cozy atmosphere. Elaine and Rob are so friendly! The minute you meet them, you feel like you've known them forever. In fact, our first night we learned that many of the other guests were "returning" guests which I think says it all. If you're looking to get away for a romantic weekend, this is most definitely the place. How often is it that you wake up in the morning to the sweet smells of a delicious breakfast cooking? Every bit of the food was scrumptious and I can't even begin to talk about the cookies (which by the way were always available!). A very sincere thank you goes out to Elaine and Rob for making our stay such a pleasure. We'll definitely be back! :)

We are so happy that we chose Yelton Manor for our brief 3-day honeymoon in September. We are from Kalamazoo and didn't want to spend the short time we had off in travel time, so South Haven was just right, with Lake Michigan almost at our doorstep and the shops and restaurants in town just a short distance. The Manor is so wonderful -- just being there with all the books and the beautiful furnishings is such a treat. The breakfast and hors d'oeuvres offerings were glorious (the chocolate chip cookies are amazing) and Rob and Elaine are so warm and giving -- the perfect hosts! We will be back and we recommend the Manor to everyone.

What a great place! The innkeepers were very friendly and accomodating. We felt at home immediately. Lots of nooks and crannies filled with inviting furniture, games and books galore - a rainy day paradise.

The rooms, each with its own bathroom, were very clean and spacious with a sitting area to read or watch TV, VCR, or DVD (with a wide selection of both available at no charge). A radio/CD player was also located in the room.

The breakfast was excellent.

Would highly recommend this place to anyone.
