My husband and I spent two nights in South Haven at the start of our 5-night road trip along the sunset coast of Michigan and, believe me, Yelton Manor was a tough act to follow. Our entire experience was spectacular! So relaxing and delicious. Robert, Elaine, and the other innkeepers (Abby, Tyler, and Anna) run a place that is impeccably... More

We live only 45 minutes away and had never explored South Haven. Such a beautiful downtown and harbor area. This was our first visit to Yelton Manor and we'll definitely be back. The attention to detail was impressive. The food was fantastic. It's located across the street from beautiful Lake Michigan and a short walk away from all the downtown... More

This was the first time that my sweet wife and I had been able to get away together, alone, since our twins were born. They are 18 months old. They were born very early, and we have been unable to leave them with anyone until now. We left them, along with our 3 and a half year old, with my... More

We planned a last minute trip to South Haven for the 4th, and were lucky to get the last room at this beautiful B & B. Elaine and Robert were fun hosts, and the staff was wonderful. Conversations were always entertaining and interesting...The food was superb and plentiful, and very healthy. I loved the buffet table that was filled every... More

The Yelton Manor is beautiful and well-appointed. The location is idyllic, very near the lake. My husband and I spent 2 nights there. The Breakfast menu was fresh and snacks were readily available throughout the day. The experience was almost perfect. However for 300.00 a night, there were a few details missing that I expected, based on our experience at... More

Thank you for your kind words about our beautiful inn and lakefront location. As a high quality hospitality experience we do indeed offer many extraordinary amenities. True to our ongoing commitment to have sustainable, ecologically progressive inn practices we deliberately no longer serve bottled water or Kuerig coffee. Refreshing icy cold cucumber water infused with mint growing in our garden... More

I took some real, meaningful time off work this year - 10 days!! (Yes, that is a lot for me), and spent six of those days at Yelton Manor. What a relaxing "step away"! The Guest House suite I stayed in was beautiful, spacious, crisp, cool and terrifically comfortable. I went out to the beaches, or to town every single... More

I wanted to take my wife away for our anniversary and she had mentioned that she wanted to go to South Haven. I did a little research and found Yelton Manor. What caught my attention is they served vegan and vegetarian food for breakfast. The property itself is just spectacular with attention paid to many minor details (which I appreciate).... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the cutest B&B I've ever seen, Yelton Manor. For context, I'm not one to stay at B&Bs....I'm a little OCD on cleanliness and I don't go on vacation to socialize with people I don't know, so I prefer to stay in nice hotels. That being said, there are not many decent hotels in... More

This our the 4th stay at Yelton Manor and Guest House. Wonderful, as usual! A few tips about the Avery Beach room in the Guest House. The room is as beautiful as the pictures on their website. For infrequent B & B travelers you just need to be aware of a couple of little things that could surprise you. First,... More
