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... More

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... More

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... More

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...

My husband and I honeymooned at the Carriage House two years ago, but had to leave early to attend a funeral. David and Suzanne honored the night we paid for at our most recent stay. I was amazed that they were so willing to have us back and honor our credited night over two years later! Needless to say, the... More

“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.”

“Do not book or pay for the Victoria King Room”
  • extremely small sink area
  • metal window blinds were in really bad shape...unacceptable for the price of the room
  • Ridiculously small bathroom... the door hits the toilet bowl
  • There was a frig.. not working but they stored christmas decor in it
  • Windows were filthy...inside and out
  • small bathroom and narrow step up to the tub
  • This was the advertised flat screen TV.. .in the closet, wires hanging out

“Definitely suggest the White Chapel or any other room facing the harbor. Most of them have a private balcony.”
