Great owner/host that makes you feel at home. Wonderful cooked breakfast. Comfortable room and bed. Conveniently located just out of town on a quiet street. Historic feel with parking onsite and lots of attention to architectural detail and furnishings.

This is a very nice historical home outside South Haven. The host Rashid is very welcoming. The home itself is very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Monroe Suite. The queen bed was very comfortable with a nice private bathroom with a nice shower w/additional body jets. Instead of eating breakfast in the formal dinning room we had it served on the large front porch. We were offered several choices for breakfast which was excellent. Rashid had the backyard firepit going Saturday evening which we quite enjoyed. While the home is more out in the country you can drive to South Haven in a few minutes We will definitely be back

Stayed here one night with my sister, it was her first bed and breakfast and she loved it. The host at the Monroe Manor is the best one that I've had at an inn. Incredible customer service, delicious breakfast, nice country setting away from the hustle and bustle of downtown South Haven. We stayed in the master suite, the tub was dream worthy and the bed and pillows were comfortable, absolutely loved the tea lights outside at night on the relaxing porch. We really enjoyed sitting outside in the evening and taking in the quiet and the beautiful surroundings and the outdoor cats were so friendly and made the experience extra special. I thought the price was very affordable especially compared to other ones in the area. The inn was incredibly clean and loved the architecture. Would highly recommend and would stay again.

My wife and I have been visiting South Haven during the Blueberry Festival for the past 20 years. We’ve rented houses, stayed at hotels, and for the past half dozen years or so, have chosen the comfort and convenience of B&Bs. This year, our usual choice was no longer accepting reservations, so during the very earliest days of the Pandemic, (when I thought FOR SURE this “would all blow over” by August) we selected the Monroe Manor Bed & Breakfast, and crossed our fingers. Then the Pandemic Pandemonium began: Schools, businesses, bars, restaurants closed, economic turmoil, millions unemployed, and as the months dragged slowly by, we kept checking two things: The festival website (still on!) and the B&B reservation desk (still open!) so we held onto that flickering candle of hope that we’d still be able to get away for a nice weekend (didn’t we deserve at least that much?) Then the two days of Musical Entertainment turned into ONE day and ONE band. Well … okay, that’s better than nothing, but then a week out, we learned that the ONE day turned into NO days, so we pinned all of our mini-vacation hopes on the Monroe Manor Inn. And I gotta say, this was probably the most pleasant and relaxing weekend I’ve had in South Haven. Turns out, the guy I’d been harassing over the phone was actually the owner (no WONDER he sounded so calm and reassuring) and he runs a VERY nice B&B. You hear a lot about businesses that successfully “pivot” during the Pandemic, and I a lot of time wondering whether he had to change everything around to fit Social Distancing Guidelines, or whether his Inn just happened to be exceptionally suited to make the adjustments to a Global Pandemic. Although we had a large, lovely, airy room, in a beautifully elegant antebellum building which perfectly blended the charm of yesterday with modern amenities (multiple shower-heads, towel warmers, wi-fi throughout, complimentary Netflix on the wall-mounted flat-screen TVs) the true strength of this establishment lies in the people behind it. Rashid, the owner, is welcoming you into his home, and as his guest, his desire to show you true hospitality is evident. So while we did forego the impressive dining room for a more CDC-friendly outdoor setting for breakfast, I was just as impressed with his (okay, probably his wife’s) decorative touches, especially incorporating the symbol of hospitality – pineapples - into the decor. The wraparound porch/veranda has ample (and socially distant!) seating for all guests. The place settings, china, silverware, were all exquisite, and Rashid, as your host, could not have been more welcoming, and the full breakfast was both tasty and tastefully plated. I look forward to many more weekends at The Monroe Manor Inn. (By the way, did I mention there was a fire pit with comfortable seating?)

We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Monroe Manor Inn Ned & Breakfast. This was our first time to stay in a B&B and it did not disappoint!! The owner was so nice and accommodating to us. Each morning started with a delightful breakfast. Would highly recommend this place and we look forward to going back again soon!
