We loved the Yelton Manor! A friend told me about a special B&B in South Haven that really was "too good to be true" and she was right! It has everything to soothe mind, body, and spirit: fireplaces, porches, amazing gardens (and Elaine can answer any gardener's questions), and a spotless renovated decor that feels like long ago and far...

When we were married in 1991, my new hubby and I enjoyed our honeymoon in the Forget-Me-Not room. We loved the cozy Victorian atmosphere, delicious food, and all the nooks and crannies where we could cuddle up and read so many interesting books, or talk and snack at the snackbar. Fifteen years later we decided to re-live our honeymoon for...

My husband and I had been at the Yelton Manor for Valentine's Day a few years ago. We enjoyed it so much that we went back for our 6th anniversary celebration. Elaine did a fabulous job of selecting two fantastic restaurants for us, which made our trip even more noteworthy. The inn is beautifully decorated. All details are taken care...

My girlfriend and I didn't have to search long for the perfect place to usher in the new year. The Yelton Manor has a reputation that proceeds itself but which could not possibly do it justice... The Manor is a strikingly beautiful victorian B&B which only becomes more awe inspiring inside. What really stood out to us were the details...

We spent a lovely 3 day weekend here for our anniversary. It was only supposed to be 2 days but it was so wonderful that we asked if we could book an extra day. Robert and Elaine graciously accommodated our request. They were so sweet and helpful. We asked about places to eat and had a complete list of all...

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful New Year's Eve Weekend at the Manor. Elaine and Robert were wonderful hosts. We were greeted warmly by Robert outside the front door and he engaged us in a charming conversation several minutes before we realized he was the "Robert". Elaine treated me like a family member from the moment I crossed the...

I have to say a close friend recommended this B&B, and I couldn't have been more pleased with our accomodations. Not only is the house comfortable, but it's in a lovely location as well, close to fabulous shopping. We enjoyed plentiful gourmet breakfasts and comfortable, relaxing time in our spacious room. The innkeepers were friendly, warm, accomodating and we just...

My husband and I stayed at the Yelton Manor for three nights and each passing day gave us a more unsettled feeling with the innkeeper. The accomodations were nice,but the food was average. But what was most alarming was the often paranoid and illtolerate demeanor of Elaine the innkeeper. She often made snide criticisms about other b&b's. And had a...

One of my favorite times to visit the yelton manor is in the fall. This year was no exception. I love the idea of being truly isolated from our busy life - a walk on Lake Michigan, a warm, welcoming home to return to. It made a wonderful destination on a great color tour - despite rain at times. We...
