Physically not a 5 but hospitality and location make up for it. Rooms not fancy but comfortable porch and tiki bar and hey, it's a beach house. Good basic breakfast and snacks all day. And location, location, location!... Beach a block away one direction and harbor a block the other. You can walk everywhere. Owner and staff very accommodating.

Our family of 4 stayed for the first time at Sunset Inn and it was the perfect place for us! Charlie, the owner, was very hospitable. The property has been in his family for decades and it's obvious that he cares a lot about it and South Haven. Our suite was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were tasty, with options... More

What a quiet place to relax despite being nestled in between 2 houses. The location is great as well. The beach across the street is beautiful and there's a nice path to walk along the river. Charlie was also very accommodating. We'll definitely return!

We have stayed here several times and keep going back when visiting South Haven. They are always very nice and accommodating. It is an unconventional B&B with a laid back vibe we love. The location is across the street from north beach and can't be beat. You can walk everywhere from here and enjoy the quaint town of South Haven.

This was our first bed & breakfast stay. We had a wonderful time. The house was great. Nice & close to the beach and marina. Great for sunsets or a bike ride around town. Charlie was an excellent host & I love the tiki bar in front to have drinks & breakfast. Great place to relax and enjoy the area.... More

This is a great place to stay in South Haven.....its a short trip to the beach. The room I stayed in was very clean and updated. The owner was very informative and served an excellent breakfast every day of the stay. The Sunset Inn is a close walk to downtown and it will definitely be the place I stay when... More

Wonderful room, huge bathroom, great location. It's not directly on the lake, but that's ok. A quick walk across the street. South Haven is a walking town, so no matter where you stay, you'll park the car and walk. Be sure to check out Tello Italian Bistro for a delicious Meal. We'll be back for sure!

We stayed at the Sunset Inn- Harbor lights cottage for the weekend. Great location! We almost didn't stay here because of some of the reviews-so glad we decided to go. The cottage is much bigger than it appears on the pictures. We had 8 adults-(one person slept on a air mattress) It has a nice wrap round deck over looking... More

It is clean! Water pressure was great and not once did we blow a fuse-even using my 1875 watt hair dryer! Charlie takes pride in running a laid-back atmosphere Inn. Not to say he is not paying attention to details, he is there to help you enjoy your stay, not orchestrate it. He was more then willing to help us... More

Anyone looking at reviews on tripadvisor, yelp, or google can see that this is a very polarizing property. Seems it's kind of a love-it or hate-it place for most people. I'll try to provide a balanced and candid review, although my own travelling strengths and hang-ups will obviously color my review. On one hand, I'm low maintenance; I don't feel... More
