WE LOVE IT - IT'S SO ROMANTIC AND BEAUTIFUL!!!! Jurgen and I (Jennifer) were just married last August, 2007. I, Jennifer am from the west side of Michigan and had stayed at the Yelton Manor when it was first built, 20 yrs. ago. We decided we needed to get away from the Detroit area and celebrate our 1 year wedding...

We completely enjoyed our stay at Yelton Manor. That begins with Rob and Elaine, the owners. They are both friendly, outgoing, and helpful -- but also don't intrude or wear out their welcome. Rob was the one that greeted us when we arrived and was particularly skillful and suggesting activities and restaurants that would appeal specifically to us (though Elaine...

As a mom of a two little ones, I desperately needed a break! I emailed Elaine at Yelton Manor, who set me up in a gorgeous air-conditioned room with SIX pillows on the comfy bed, a flat-screen TV with DVD player (and tons of current movies), free bottled water and delicious CDs for mood music. The Manor is just across...

My husband and I have been to quite a few B & Bs and the Yelton Manor was hands down the best ever. Where to begin...Oh yes...how about the always present fresh chocolate chip cookies and brownies? Or maybe the help-yourself popcorn machine? The beautifully decorated and comfortable rooms? The fantastic breakfasts and hors d'oeuvres? The beautiful gardens and cozy...

My wife and I have stayed at Yelton Manor close to ten times. It is simply the best B & B we have ever experienced. We live almost 4 hours away, but if we are anywhere close to South Haven, we find an excuse to stay. Elaine and Rob have been running Yelton for 20 years, and they know what...

Yelton Manor was the perfect escape. Between demanding jobs and graduate school schedules, my fiance and I were in dire need of a chance to slow down for a couple of days. The inn is incredibly cozy, and with the shelves and shelves of books, the delicious cookies and brownies available at all hours, and the friendly and entertaining staff,...

Yelton is THE perfect place to renew and refresh with your significant other, favorite friends or even yourself...go ahead, you know you deserve it! Its the best prescription for the stressed- out and overbooked life we all seem to lead these days. The Yelton is a special place that you want to tell others about after you have been there....

The Yelton Manor is the best B&B in South Haven hands down. Each time I stay at the Manor I am continually amazed at the new discoveries within. An immediate feeling of relaxation comes over you when you enter the Manor. They maintain an amazing library of books to read while enjoying the fireplace or hanging out in one of...

No, there are no beach chairs provided by Yelton Manor however they do have towels you can take to the beach. We were told by more than one individual that there are no beach chairs for rent in South Haven. Bring your own!

My first choice would be Chicago but it's still a ways away. Midway is closer than O'Hare. Chicago also on Central time, we are an hour ahead in EST. South Bend, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids are all just an hour away
