We just stayed at the Yelton Manor for my husband's birthday. the end of June. You know the old saying, there's no place like home, well we have found a second home at the Manor! The owners, Rob & Elaine, could not be nicer. Their 5-star rating is exactly that. Great food, great hosts, spotless rooms and common areas, and...

My wife and I have been patrons of the Yelton Manor many years. Each time we visit, we have an incredible experience! First and foremost, the Yelton Manor is impecably clean. The rooms are very well appointed and very well updated. We have stayed in at least 5 or 6 different rooms, from the quaint IVY ROOM to the large...

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful week at the Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast. Our stay was outstanding. The property itself, both inside and out, is beautiful. The Gardens are lovely and welcome you to the property. There are numerous comfortable and cozy rooms to sit and relax. We particularly loved the screened-in porch. We had our breakfast...

What a peaceful sanctuary! From the soft music playing in the common areas, to the plethora of books that tantalize your reading taste buds, the yummy veggie "salsa Elaine" for topping my eggs, to the lush flora that surrounds the inn....all of it provided me with a much needed break for my body and soul. Just across the street I...

"Top of the Crop" isn't just advertising--they deliver. Thoroughly professional and yet welcoming, warm and filled with gracious and thoughtful touches. An ideal relaxing setting for couples. You'll want to return.

My husband and I returned today from celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary in South Haven, MI. Not knowing the area, I searched the internet to make our lodging reservations. I decided on Yelton Manor. Elaine Herbert was the innkeeper that assisted us. The Manor is so beautifully decorated it's difficult to put into words. There are several sitting areas where...

We stayed in the Samson room. The room was relatively small. The manor provided chocolate and DVDs which was nice as well as chocolate chip cookies. For the price, the room was just OK. The location was also just OK. While across from the beach access, the beach that it is across from is a sliver in between private areas....

The South Haven beaches were named #2 "best Beaches in Michigan" by Lake Magazine this spring. The beach is 5 straight miles of white sand, clean, uncrowded, beautiful. There is a public beach at nearly every street intersection, some small neighborhood beaches, several huge beaches. This guest needed only to walk to the next block in either direction to discover...

We absolutely loved and would recommend this bed and breakfast. It was one of the nicest bed and breakfasts we have stayed at and we have stayed at many. The hosts were fabulous and attended to our every need. They recommended restaurants which turned out to be excellent choices. Breakfast was very good and the afternoon o'derves were excellent.

Recently one of my best friends and I wanted to spend time together before she moved away. We wanted a place where we could spend time relaxing. We chose the Yelton and it is the BEST!

I have stayed with friends in South Haven many times so already knew I would love the area. But this time I needed to find someplace to stay with a friend visiting from Paris. I've walked past the Yelton many times and was amazed at the lovely garden. I even noticed the smiling gardender, who I now know to be...
