Lovely guest house with owners and staff keen to provide for any need. We only mentioned an interest in quilting to find a print off of shops in the area pushed under the door. Very relaxed atmosphere with board games and books provided. Even a fridge with glasses and ice for own wine. Rooms were decadent and maintained in the...

Clean, comfortables beds, friendly staff, delicious breakfast and helpful dining recommendations make Carriage House a top place to stay in South Haven. It's close the beach, shops and attractions. Their common areas are comfortable and the breakfast rooms have great views of the harbor. Amenities include robes, jetted tub (some suites), evening snacks, and a nice coffee and juice bar...

We spent last weekend at Carriage House with 4 other couples. We could not have had a better get away. Went biking on the Kal-Haven trail, visited Saugatuck, and had the beautiful Carriage House to come home to. Amy did a great job, (and quick wit) of making us feel welcome. Best breakfast ever...worth the trip for the Carriage House...

While fairly new to the B&B experience, this is a benchmark others should be judged against in comparison. The rooms were comfortable and quiet with a great view of the marina from our private deck. The location put it in easy walking distance of the historic part of town along with a few easy minutes to the beech. The staff...

The Carrige House at the Harbor is our favorite place to stay in South Haven. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The house is very nice, clean and in a great location (a block from the beach and an easy walk into town). We like to get a room with a balcony so we can watch the boats in...

We stayed here as one of three B&B's to celebrate our 15th anniversary. In terms of convenience and location this was the best of the three and all 3 were incredible. The location here is fantastic! South Haven is a perfect little harbor town with a great lighthouse, beaches, beautiful views, and great food. We stayed in "The Barouche" room...

We stayed at the Carriage House in May, 2012. Our suite was cozy, clean and comfortable with a deck overlooking the river. It is a beautiful property, the hosts are great. The food is excellent. We were one block from the beach. We were very pleased.

Spent our anniversary here and it couldn't have been better. The location is ideal. The staff couldn't have been more kind and accommodating. The inn was nearly full, but we didn't hear much of a peep from the other guests. It seemed very private. My picky husband even loved the food. We don't typically stay at B&Bs, but this experience...
