Reviewed July 30, 2013

This was our 4th visit to the Yelton Manor and Elaine and Bob never fail to make our stay an enjoyable one. The rooms our immaculate, warm and inviting. Each morning we were awakened by the aroma of a delicious breakfast being prepared for us. In the afternoon some delicious appetizers to go with a nice glass of wine. in between, visits to beautiful lake Michigan or in town for some shopping. Several nice restaurants are a short drive away and our hosts are more than happy to make a reservation for us. After a busy day as you head for your room to relax there's one last stop to make for a snack of popcorn or the never ending brownies. You won't go wrong staying here!

We stayed in the Camellia room. Our first night, we relaxed in the tub with a glass of wine. Breakfast was delicious and congenial - we chatted with other guests, as well as Elaine and Robert. The gardens are spectacular and the location is perfect! We parked at the inn when we arrived and didn't drive again until it was time to go. Everything was a pretty walk away: the movie theater, restaurants, and shops.

What a great place! My wife and I needed rest and had the most restful and peaceful time. We enjoyed the Lily room with its comfortable bed. The whole house is charming and is surrounded with a lovely garden. Elaine and Robert and their staff are very gracious and helpful. They gave great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. We could tell they love serving their guests. Lake Michigan is right across the street affording morning walks on the beach. Great coffee and with a tasty breakfast with healthy choices. The afternoon refreshments featured homemade hummus, the best we have ever eaten. We were there a week and enjoyed leisure sightseeing in South Haven and the surrounding towns. Good selection of movies to choose from. We would definitely return and enjoy it all over again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lily Room. Whole house is peaceful.

My husband and I visited to celebrate our anniversary. This vacation may have been the most relaxing ever. Our room was very comfortable, very quiet and very clean. The gardens were beautiful . Be sure to sit on the swing and enjoy the flowers. Breakfast was outstanding: a savory and a sweet dish were offered every morning. Robert and Elaine were very attentive to our questions and requests. We will be back soon to rest, relax and recharge

Our third stay at Yelton Manor was just as delightful as the others! We stayed in the Rose suite in the Manor House and found it to be spacious, supremely comfortable and lovely. Everything about the house and grounds is superb, but the factor that makes this B&B stand far above the others is the cordiality of the owners and staff. Guests feel very welcome and very relaxed as soon as they enter. Brownies, beach towels, and blooms are so nice, but Elaine, Robert, and Cindy are remarkable people who know just how to make you feel at home.

Room Tip: The breakfast served to the guests who stay in the Manor House rather than the Guest House makes the...

My husband and I celebrated our 42nd anniversary at the Yelton Manor. What a fabulous time we had! The Manor is beautiful inside and out. Lovely gardens surround the manor and the rooms are very attractive, clean and comfortable. It is evident that a lot of thought and hard work went into creating this very pleasant and inviting environment. You could not ask for a better location...walking distance to downtown and across the street from the beach. Robert. Elaine and their staff were very attentive and went out of their way to make the weekend delightful and relaxing. We appreciated the delicious healthy breakfasts and snacks. The brownies are exceptional. My husband can definitely attest to this, since he plucked one off the plate every time he went by them. If you are going to South Haven, this is the place to go. You will be well taken care of.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifully appointed. Can't go wrong with any one you pick

It would be hard to find a more perfect B and B! Yelton is gorgeous; immaculately kept inside with extensive perennial gardens embracing the outdoors. Great location; easy walk downtown to shop and dine, and right across from the lake. Yelton also specializes in hundreds of wonderful books to read, movies to watch, conversations to be had; perfect for a solo get away, a couples vaca or a small group retreat. The rooms and baths are decorated perfectly and uniquely. Elaine and Robert, as well as all of the Manor staff were kind, attentive, accomodating, polite. They provided healthy, gormet breakfasts and afternoon snacks , as well as offered excellent advice about local/regional restaurants and other attractions. We left, wishing we could have stayed longer and knowing that we will return.
