Carriage House at the Harbor is our favorite Anniversary getaway destination. This year we stayed in the Phaeton Room. The view of the harbor was amazing, and even visible when lying in bed! We enjoyed sitting out on our little deck sipping coffee, watching the birds and enjoying the sunshine. Suzanne, the Innkeeper, and her staff are always so friendly...

We had a wonderful time at Carriage House at the Harbor! My sister & I decided to come to this town for a random weekend getaway and we loved every minute of it. Although the weather wasn't what we had hoped for, we didn't let that ruin our fun. The staff at Carriage House was more than helpful and were...

This bed and breakfast nook gives off a 1950's vibe! The decor in the bedroom arrangements (bed, wall paper, and fireplace) are adorable and cozy. Perfect view of the lake out from our balcony! The B&B has board games and dvds that are available to guests. My partner and I felt right at home with the warm service from the...

Our first 6 hours at the Carriage House was wonderful! Then the guests staying in the room above us returned and the ship known as wonderful left the harbor. The noise from the folks above us was disturbing to say the least. Everything from thumps, thuds, knocks, and other various noises disrupted us until well past 1 am. After it...

My husband and I spent a weekend here during Ice Breakers in South Haven. We stayed in the Concord room which had a fireplace and jacuzzi. The Inn is beautiful and is super clean and cozy. There were lots of games, movies and books to peruse. We actually spent the evenings at the Inn playing games and sitting in front...

We have been going to the Carriage House for years. This year was another great experience. Carlene checked us in and couldn't be more sweet or welcoming. Everything was clean and ready for us. We've stayed in more than half of the rooms and the Phaeton was another good choice. It was spacious, clean, and had a great view. Love...

I have never done a review on a B&B or hotel, however I felt like I needed to make sure and share our great and wonderful experience with others. Carriage House at the Harbor is one of those experiences where it's more than just a great nights sleep or a really nice breakfast............it's the way that the Innkeeper makes you...

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. We felt very welcomed and enjoyed our visits with innkeeper and staff. They were very helpful with local info. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and typical Victorian. We had a little balcony, which was nice. Breakfasts were almost more than we could eat, and delicious! Easy walk to town and 1...

“White Chapel is the best but you can't go wrong with the Barouche or Brett(both these two are on the 3rd floor”

“We chose the Concord because we wanted a double jacuzzi. It had a queen size bed. The room was a bit small but worked out ok.”

“Make sure to choose a room the over-looks the harbor. It's well worth the extra money!”

“Having a balcony was a nice amenity. Rooms in Victorians are small, so getting a "larger" room affords a little more space.”

“We love the White Chapel.....definitely the best in the Inn, but a little more expensive. The Caleche is wonderful as is the Barouche.”
