We spent a long weekend at the Yelton Manor Boutique Hotel B&B in October (2019). I find it's best to let the experience marinade in my soul before it's time to share. I noticed the new and enhanced property name: "Yelton Manor Boutique Hotel B&B" and this says quite a bit. "The Yelton" as my wife and I call it for shorthand is a Boutique Hotel and it's a full service B&B. It's precisely what you want it to be, perfect for meeting interesting people and engaging in fascinating conversations, or ideal for chillaxing with a good book (or movie) and indulging your inner introvert. The Yelton and its staff have a way of meeting you exactly where you need to be. In October, I left with a smile and a relaxed sense of calm. I can't wait to go again, hopefully early in the Season this year to see South Haven in Springtime. I'm also looking forward to seeing the continuing evolution of this unique resort experience. The innkeepers seem to be casually gathering feedback that becomes part of their never-ending guest experience improvement process. Some years the changes are significant and others times minor, but it's always noticeable and impacts your stay in a positive way. Last Season's changes to breakfast service were incredible - delicious, homemade menu-style food choices for varying meals (over several days) with table service. It was just the perfect way to start the day! I'm eager to see what's coming next... still Top of the Crop!

Just see the website for how the innkeepers anticipate and deliver the perfect getaway. Elaine and Robert are hands on hosts at this elegant inn and are so nice. Their simple vegetarian restaurant (My husband is a vegetarian) is amazing. We especially loved the screened in garden porch with the sparkling Victorian chandeliers, beautiful palms and ferns and candlelight in the evening. We walked to everything, there is free parking, the best brownies you ever tasted 24/7, and warm popcorn with movies. A+++

We loved this wonderful hotel! South Haven is our favorite Lake Michigan vacation town but has very limited hotel lodging choices especially for those preferring really clean, super close to the beach and still walkable to town. Add “adults only” ambiance to the mix and there is only one: this one. Rates were pretty much the same as the much inferior inns we have stayed in previously, but amenities like plush linens far superior. Innkeepers Elaine and Robert were very helpful, the food was delicious and we loved everything about our stay at Yelton Manor Hotel B&B. Everything was perfect.

South Haven is my favorite summer vacation beach getaway when traveling back home and this is my favorite hotel. Smack on the beach, clean as a whistle, friendly as can be. This will be our 3rd summer. We love the big patio with the umbrellas in the big private garden, we are ALL about the cocktail hour there !! for enjoying Innkeeper Robert’s tray full of delicious munchies. We are addicted to The Biltmore Suite with its cute balcony looking to the water and beautiful stained glass windows. I love the lush linens and flexible breakfast times between 8AM and noon. Say yes to the fruit smoothies! Also, as many say, I love that there are no kids, sorry families. I definitely recommend this wonderful large inn on Lake Michigan. Free on site parking is much appreciated.

When I discover a real gem I intend to write a "thank you review" then life happens so I don't follow through. So better late than never? Anyway...I can’t wait to get my feet back onto that warm sandy beach and my hands around a salty margarita at sunset, I need a return trip to South Haven! And the best lodging in our favorite resort town is this comfortable but urbane small hotel. We love to park our car and not get in it again until we are headed back home, everything’s an easy walk...all the beaches and town. The hotel itself is gorgeous escape with plenty of adult amusements including a current DVD library, board games and pretty porches, gardens and patios. The guest suites have every personal amenity you might need or want. The linens are luxurious. The innkeepers are gracious & the food is delicious. We particularly appreciate that the hotel is “all adults”, the WiFi was always steady enough to stream and the coffee was spectacular! This will be our 3rd year returning in June for HarborFest.
