We loved our stay at the Sand Castle Inn. We were able to park our car and not get back in it until we were ready to go home, which was our goal. We loved being across the street from the beach, the park, and the short walk to all the downtown shops and restaurants. The porch is beautiful and...

Sand Castle Inn in South Haven is a cute, cozy B&B 1.5 blocks from North Beach. The Inn is adorable with an "I feel right at home" feel. It's a very quick walk to the beach or downtown. Check in/out was very quick, snacks were plentiful, and staff was very friendly.

Our favorite aspects: cleanliness, comfortable bed with nice linens, ample and delicious breakfast, very close proximity to beach, good pool area, excellent staff: cordial and helpful, beautiful porch. No problems, but the common areas seem somewhat cramped and carpets are worn (but clean). Not a top-of-the-line luxury place, but very comfortable. We will return.

What a great place to get away! Home made breakfast in the morning and appetizers in the afternoon. Only a quick walk to the beach to check out the sunset and enjoy the sand and water.

The Sand Castle is in a great location - one block from the Dyckman public beach access and just a short walk (5 - 10 minutes) to the North Beach public beach access. It is a short walk or shorter drive to the downtown shopping area and Black River harbor/marina area. The room was very nicely decorated, bathroom was clean...

Good job of giving a nice vacation very close to everything. They are one of the few B and Bs that offer twin beds. The front porch is worth the whole room. We took our bikes and had an easy on to the Kal-Haven trail.

Excellent host. Breakfast was delicious. The room was clean and comfortable. They tailored breakfast times to our schedule. We stayed during some off-peak times and had the whole place to ourselves. Highly recommend.
