10/10 would recommend!! Such a cute place! I stayed in one of the smaller rooms but they made wonderful use of the space! Bed was comfortable. The breakfast blew me away, by far the best I’ve had in a long time! And only a short walk across the street to get to the water/ beach!! Also a short walk into town for dinner. Would definitely stay here again!!

We loved our room, the harbor view, the fabulous breakfasts and the personal touches! All of the special amenities included were awesome! Loved the delightful cookies and popcorn each afternoon and evening. All of the fireplaces were a big hit! We watched several movies in our room! Great place!!

This was our second stay at Carriage House at the Harbor. They have several rooms with small porches that overlook the harbor. Breakfast is very good - the scones are the best! We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and watching the activity in the harbor. It's a short walk to the beach. Just a little longer walk to town.

Spent my Birthday weekend at the Carriage House. This is our fourth year in a row. We have tried different room each time and have enjoyed them all. Breakfast is always wonderful, and we try a different restaurant in the area each time we come. Looking forward to next year.

Sadly I can't tell who is writing the review but thank you for taking the time. I'm sorry I wasn't here this past weekend to greet and speak with you. I was with family at a Happening in Cincinnati called Bling - massive outdoor light show all through downtown. Your lovely comments are really appreciated, Suzanne

This was our first visit to the Carriage House. The location is perfect...an easy walk to town and the beach...yet away from the traffic... The setting inspirational, overlooking the black river and South Haven’s great harbor. The beautiful historic home is well maintained with exceptional amenities...and the staff is friendly, attentive and professional. Breakfast was a gourmet daily creation brought to our table...not the typical buffet of off the shelf items. As a plus...the owner is at the house to answer questions, make local suggestions and entertain you with the home’s history. As you can tell...we loved everything about the Carriage House. One of our favorite B & B experiences ever.
