Lake Michigan sunsets out the front door is just the beginning of the amazing pleasures of Yelton Manor B&B. If you are a gardener, or just enjoy a glass of red wine surrounded by flowers, this is garden paradise! The inn is very luxurious but comfortable, very social but private too. The victorian mansion charmed us with it's old world beauty and it's new world luxuries and cleanliness. We enjoyed the wonderful food, the innkeepers are very healthy people who put the extra effort into making beautiful, delicious and healthy food. The attitude is fun. We will be forever guests!!!

Yelton Manor B&B puts all the elements together for an outstanding beach holiday! Lake Michigan's sandy sunset beach out the front door, friendly and professional hosts who guide you to everything you need and want, and a beautiful inn. We loved the firm bed, spacious clean suite, flat screen TVs with a choice of 1000s of movies, 1000s of beautiful picture books and healthy delicious food. This is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Fall was so beautiful in the cute town of South Haven too. We'll return every year.

Superior hospitality, luxurious amenities and a prime Lake Michigan location, Yelton Manor B&B is a wonderful inn! We loved the breakfast and the attention to healthy, delicious food. The suite was very spacious and bright, with great wing chairs and a firm bed with 6 pillows! Everything was clean and perfectly maintained. We'll be back!!!

Unlike most of my Motown neighbors, we go West, not North, for our summer vacations. The beach of Lake Michigan is so fabulous, with pure white sand, warm water and amazing sunsets. Yelton Manor B&B is our favorite place to stay and we have now visited 3 times. The location is great, walkable to everything in the cute resort town. The gardens surrounding the inn are beautiful. Inside is very elegant and comfortable. I always appreciate the cleanliness, the delicious food and the relaxed fun with the innkeepers. We also appreciate the 1000s of DVD and we get caught up on the movies we missed all year in our busy lives with work and children. My parents now give us an annual Christmas gift for this much anticipated escape and we can't wait until July, 2011 to go again! 100% recommended!

My wife and I were extremely impressed with Yelton Manor B&B. We stayed in The Camelia Room during the quiet fall season and loved every minute of our visit. We especially appreciated the healthy food and outrageously NOT healthy treats! We'll be back again and again!

WORLD CLASS is an understatement! In today's travel world, even the so-called very best hotels and inns are in sorry repair and suffer from service issues. But NOT Yelton Manor B&B, which is at the top of its game! We loved the old-fashioned warmth and beauty of the decor, but were thrilled with the cutting edge location, service, luxury, cleanliness and attention to detail. The food was delicious and head and shoulders over the usual meaty/fatty/sugary options at old-fashioned b7bs. This inn is WAY new age, vegetarian and gluten free options without even asking for them. The hosts were very kind and professional, 20+ years of loving hospitality shows in all they do. Thanks Yelton Manor, you have a lifetime guest in US!

Superlative on all counts, Yelton Manor B&B is exactly what we look for in hospitality, service, location and luxury. The gardens and the beach, wow! The inn itself is amazing, clean, classy, comfortable. Owner/Innkeepers work it themselves, very hands on, very engaged and fun, knowledgable and generous about the area. Great food too. We stayed in The Camelia Room and the jacuzzi tub was wonderful, a big 4 poster king bed too. VERY plush, but rates the same as much lesser places we have stayed. We have been to 2 other inns in South Haven and they don't compare to Yelton Manor, which truly has it all. We loved it, will return again and again.

Yelton Manor is the best B&B we have ever visited, and we travel using inns all over the world. Longtime owners are on every detail for cleanliness, great food and all details for fun and rest. The rates are great too. LOVED it!

A sparkling gem of an inn, that's for sure. Clean, maintained impeccably, lovingly decorated,
artistic gardens, homemade and delicious food. The innkeepers have been at it for 2 decades, they knew exactly how to make sure that our visit was perfect. We'll return again and again for the beach, the fun, the luxury, the relaxation!

The Yelton Manor B&B is the very best B&B that I have ever been to. Everything, from the location on Lake Michigan, to the firm beds and beautiful interiors, fresh food and great hosts is first class. I enjoyed the huge video library as well as the 1000s and 1000s of beautiful books in the inn. I have been to the other inns in South haven and none stack up to the luxury of The Yelton.

We spent a Sunday night in the Lily Room at Yelton Manor recently and our one regret is that we didn't stay longer. It was impeccably clean, absolutely beautiful, extremely comfortable, and the food was out of this world. Breakfast was abundant and delicious, and the owners, Robert and Elaine, were so very warm and friendly. We were attracted to Yelton Manor because of their great reviews and their competitive prices. It turned out to be so much more than we expected. We not only highly recommend this B & B, but - even though we rarely visit the same place twice - we will be returning ourselves. And next time, we'll stay longer.

The Manor is the perfect escape. Growing up in Michigan, South Haven??s Yelton Manor was always a desirable harbor town getaway. Living in Chicago; Yelton Manor was an easy drive around the lake when you needed to feel worlds away. Now that I??m in Charlotte NC, Yelton Manor is still a worthwhile trek for the incredible, and affordable, luxury getaway.
Yelton Manor is known for a romantic relaxing atmosphere (coming from Chicago, it is nice to catch the sunset over Lake Michigan). Regardless, if it??s a solo trip or with a significant other, The Manor is a refreshing break from everyday life. It really is the stop-and-smell-the-roses vacation we all need (literally); the grounds are covered in lush gardens like you??ve never seen. Every time I??ve been there the lovely staff makes sure I get absolute most out of all that South Haven has to offer. Though sometimes, I??d just as soon stay in the beautiful manor with something from their unbelievable selection of movies and books. If you??ve never been, this is a must stay.

If you love the white sand beaches of Lake Michigan and you want the very best hospitality for your holiday or romantic getaway, The Yelton Manor B&B is for you!!! This perfect inn is nestled into the prettiest expanse of garden flowers, very wow, very special, and is walkable to everything in the town of South Haven, so you never get back into a car for your entire visit. The rooms are gorgeous, very stylish, elegant, totally comfortable, totally clean. The porches and living areas are also very beautifully decorated, but not fussy or formal, like home.
The food is all homemade and delicious and the delightful innkeepers, Elaine and Robert, are always available in the kitchen for chat and personal concierge attention. They set us up with bikes, restaurant reservations, the best place to get a bottle of wine, anything we needed. The inn is also full to the brim with pleasures that you have to pay extra for anywhere else, sweet treats, free CD music and DVDs, games, and the most amazing collection of beautiful books this side of a library. The value is high, rates are reasonable and you get more than you pay for. We have been to B&Bs all over the country and this one is in the top 3, a real find. We will return again and again!!!

My husband and I are frequent guests at Yelton Manor B&B in South Haven, MI. We go about 4 times a year and have been going for about 10 years. We have never found an inn anywhere that is better for location (what a great beach!!), luxury, gardens, amenities (books, videos), delicious fresh food and wonderful, caring, funny innkeepers. Better than any 4 Season's Hotel we have ever been to, totally tops. If you want to treat yourself to the very very best (at rates that are amazingly affordable) Yelton Manor B&B is for you. It surely delights us!!

In all our years of getting out of the city and resting at some of the best B&Bs in the country, no single inn has ever put it all together like The Yelton Manor B&B in South Haven, Michigan. The beach of Lake Michigan is right out the front door, and everything else you could possibly need or want is inside the door. We loved the professional but personal assistance of the hosts, the fresh and delicious food, the walkable location to everything, the pleasures of 1000s of beautiful books, recent movies, games, treats. The beds are firm and cozy, everything is totally clean, the decor is gorgeous and very tasteful. This is the best ever, we will never go anywhere else!

My wife and I just joined several great friends for a weekend of fun and relaxation at The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast in South Haven, Michigan. We had a blast! The B&B is really wonderful, perfectly located on a beach corner and walkable to everything we wanted or needed for the entire 3 days there. The innkeepers are a lot of fun, and were helpful with everything we needed. I especially liked that they seemed to enjoy how much WE were enjoying ourselves, we never felt overwatched or judged as we had a rocking good time together as friends. We played cards, laughed out weekend away, watch a few movies together and overall enjoyed the elegance and luxury of this clean, comfortable, terrific inn. The food was first rate too. We'll be back!

Every year on our anniversary (since our honeymoon in 1993!!) we have enjoyed a romantic and spiritual escape to the Lake Michigan beach, staying at The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast. The inn is everything a leisure or celebrating traveler could want, beautiful parklike setting on the beach, flowery gardens, many private nooks for personal reflection and 1000s and 1000s of beautiful books to enjoy. The rooms are loaded with personal luxury, like the DVD players in the flat screen TVs, but I especially enjoyed the selection of music that was included with the CD player. We also had a fireplace and jacuzzi this trip, something we don't usually treat ourselves to. The food is very fresh and plentiful, the treats are devilish, the innkeepers are loving and fun. Cleanliness is #1 here too. My wife and I love The Yelton Manor (you can also choose The Manor Guest House on the same property) and we are so pleased that Elaine and Robert have always been there for us. We hope they keep the inn another 20 years!! Our anniversary photo album always has a picture of us at The Yelton, so now we want to continue the tradition! South Haven is a great little town too.

We felt completely at home in the luxury and comfort of this beautiful inn on the shore of Lake Michigan. The beaches are huge, sandy, fabulous. The inn is priced right for the depth of luxury and the warmth of longtime innkeepers who love to take care of people. 10s of 1000s of book and DVDs, antiques, music, loved the screened in porch too.
We will be buying holiday gifts for our extended family and returning here ourselves!

Yelton Manor is our annual romantic escape destination B&B. Everything at the inn is excellent. We absolutely recommend going there. It's a great value and sure beats spending extra gas dollars to go north in michigan. What a gorgeous beach!!! The innkeepers were very professional and fun and point you toward all the things you want to do.

We recently had the pleasure of being guests at Yelton Manor. It was all we expected and more. It is an elegant property surrounded by stunning gardens. The owners and staff obviously love what they do! You can tell they love each and the guests who walk through their door. We had a relaxing escape from our world, into the arms of the innkeepers at the Manor. The breakfast was delicious, the hors d' oeuvres were very tasty and so beautiful. They use flowers and herbs right from the gardens. The staff were so helpful pointing us in any direction we wanted to go, from dining, shopping, massages, local blueberry farms, etc. I had never felt so well taken care of.
The Manor is so well maintained and spotless.We highly recommend Yelton Manor! We planned on going to Mackinac but decided to stay in South Haven instead. We are so happy we did! We will be return guests year after year. It was spectacular!!!

My wife and I consider The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast our favorite romantic destination. We have been
leaving Chicago, the kids, the pets, the work, all of it, several times a year for almost 20 years, just to relax in the comfort of this wonderful inn.
How fine to be alone, quiet, no agenda, fussed over by the attentive innkeepers. Go for the beach, the gardens, the comfort and cleanliness, the laughs,
the books, movies, and, of course, the dark chocolate. All of South Haven, Michigan, a great resort community, is walkable from the front door.
Longtime innkeepers keep the rates down and the value high, accept no substitutes! We love it, and guarantee that you will too.

My husband and I have been to quite a few B & Bs and the Yelton Manor was hands down the best ever. Where to begin...Oh yes...how about the always present fresh chocolate chip cookies and brownies? Or maybe the help-yourself popcorn machine? The beautifully decorated and comfortable rooms? The fantastic breakfasts and hors d'oeuvres? The beautiful gardens and cozy sitting places? Hundreds of books to peruse and private nooks in which to do it. Those are just some of the amenities.

The location of the Manor is excellent too. Downtown South Haven is within walking distance and is great to explore. Across the street is beach access to Lake Michigan. The sand there is unbelievable. Saugatuck is less than 30 minutes away and has great galleries and shops. We visited a winery and fell in love with some local wines. Don't worry - the Manor has glasses and a corkscrew available!

I would definitely recommend this B & B to anyone and hope to return again very soon.

We have celebrated our last 5 anniversaries at Yelton Manor. We love the hospitality and service. I cannot think of a more peaceful place to get-a-way from it all for a special weekend. The house is filled with books and warm loving atmosphere. We plan to go in the fall as we here Michigan Autumns are breathtaking. Lake Michigan is directly across the street and it is a short stroll to the quant shops and restaurants in South Haven.

There is nothing better than stepping out of a busy, concrete jungle like the city and then stepping INTO a magic land of relaxation and rest. That's why we drive one hour out of Kalamazoo, MI and fall into the heaven that is South Haven and, even more, the delights of Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast. Across from the most lovely stretch of sandy beach we have ever seen, this inn is the ultimate escape.
It's huge, so it's not so intimate that your privacy is sacrificed. Yet the innkeepers make sure that your every need is satisfied. Most of the needs are already anticipated: beautiful furnishings, fabulous gardens, great food, lots of diversions like books, movies, games. you can also get in-room massage. The beds are first rate and the upscale amenity products particularly luxurious. The innkeepers are very gracious and lots of fun. My husband and I heartily endorse The Yelton Manor B&B and would never stay anywhere else! And hooray for the wonderful, friendly and beautiful town of South Haven!

There is nothing better than stepping out of a busy, concrete jungle like the city and then stepping INTO a magic land of relaxation and rest. That's why we drive one hour out of Kalamazoo, MI and fall into the heaven that is South Haven and, even more, the delights of Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast. Across from the most lovely stretch of sandy beach we have ever seen, this inn is the ultimate escape.
It's huge, so it's not so intimate that your privacy is sacrificed. Yet the innkeepers make sure that your every need is satisfied.

We completely enjoyed weekend visit to The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast in summer, 2007 Everything about our visit was perfect. We stayed in The Iris Suite, a gorgeous 3rd floor room with windows overlooking the gardens in all directions, a big oval jacuzzi and a lovely 4-poster king size bed. Everything was perfectly clean, which is the ultimate luxury to me. Hors d'oeuvre time is a delightful social affair that spreads to all the parlors and sitting rooms, and some seriously delicious treats blend nice with the good conversation. Elaine and Robert, the owners, interact happily with the guests, making sure everyone has everything they need, dinner reservations, etc, they know the town completely and are very helpful and honest with tips for restaurants and things to do. They're naturals for this business, and their staff is no less than top-notch professional. Sunday morning's breakfast was delightful, and we enjoyed the blueberry specialties. I especially liked that dining tables were set in 4 separate dining areas, letting everyone have space for privacy or social time, whichever they prefer.
The gardens are surely the most amazing surprise, a labor of love that cannot be found elsewhere. We sat in the beauty and quiet of the flowers and birds for hours every night.
If there's one thing people might not mention much about the Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast, it's value. I must say, you get what you pay for. A perfect B&B experience is hard to find at any price, and rates at The Yelton Manor aren't much higher, if at all, than some other inns in South Haven that show guest reports of messy rooms, worn furnishings, lousy food, and untrained staff. The extra pleasures, like the 1000s of books and DVDs, all free, the classy, upscale art and furnishings, the gardens, the location at the beach and walkable to town, the decades of experience and obvious pleasure in the work shown by the innkeepers...this is worth every penny.
We'll be back again to escape from the noise and agenda of Chicago to find peace, pleasure and rejuvination at The Yelton Manor B&B.

The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast delighted my husband and I in every way. The inn is only 2 hours from Chicago, so we escaped our big city business trip and treated ourselves to some quiet/together time on the Lake Michigan shore in South Haven, Michigan. The B&B has a great website, informative and fun, but we were still surprised and delighted to find many wonderful aspects that we were not expecting. First, the warmth and hands-on care of the owners, Elaine and Robert. They seemed to recognize our every need from the first minutes of conversation, developed a full plan for everything we wanted to do, go and experience, including massages, a nature walk, restaurants with good wine. Then we were blissfully left alone unless we wanted anything. The inn is loaded to the gills with beautiful art, games, books, diversions like DVDs. We watched 4 first-run movies in 3 days, tucked into our pretty suite eating fresh popcorn and brownies like a couple of happy kids. We took silent walks through the gardens, on the beach, shopped a bit in the cute town. This is the most perfect inn we have ever been to and give it top grades. The rates are so low for the value provided, but don't even whisper it to anyone...we want to be able to continue to afford it when we return.

Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast is the place to go to get away from your life--even if your life is wonderful--and find your own spirit, your quiet inner peace. This is a destination lodging--sort of 'rehab" for those of us living whole lives but still need inspiration, rest, relaxation, pampering, rejuvenation. There are 1000s of books to read, 1000s of movies to watch, a lovely beach and cute town and miles of serene walks, including the Kal Haven Trail, a nature/woods walk. The inn is totally clean, luxurious, loaded with charm.
Owners and staff are 100% involved and fun, like caring family. Food is fresh. healthy, yummy. Holy Moly, I can't wait to go there again and again and again and again. 100% recommended.

My wife and I stay at B&Bs exclusively when we travel. We appreciate the personal touch. This inn gives us all that, with longtime owner/innkeepers who are connected to your comfort like family, plus all the professional luxury and location you could dream about.
We appreciated the healthy food, 1,0000s of books, in-room CDs, 1000s of DVDs to borrow, beautiful decor.
The location in south haven on the sandy beach of Lake Michigan is sublime. In summer this inn has the most beautiful gardens you have ever seen.

We loved our restful and inspirational holiday at The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast. The scene is already set for optimum enjoyment by the best location imaginable: steps to 7 miles of perfect sandy Lake Michigan beach, a walk to shops, restaurants, attractions. We never got back into our car in 4 days! The inn itself is enveloped in gardens, a flower paradise. The inside is pure luxury, gorgeous parlors and porches loaded with books and sweet treats. The staff is happy and knowledgable, especially the owners Elaine and Robert who are always available for full concierge services and delightful conversation. The food is fresh, delicious.
The beds are firm and we slept like dead people, lol! Everything is maintained in peak form, extremely clean and updated. The fireplace in our room was particularly appreciated on a crisp autumn night. We immediately purchased 4 gift certificates for family and friends before we left, concluding our Christmas shopping in one step. We travel to B&Bs exclusively and must say that The Yelton Manor is in our top 3 best B&Bs ever. 100% delighted!

I suspect that The Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast could be the last of a dying breed of A++++ lodging and hospitality: luxury, service, location, cleanliness. Located sublimely on a corner overlooking Lake Michigan's beautiful sunset shore, this inn has it all. It's big--20 rooms or so--so it's not so intimate that it's invasive. The owners live and work it, so they are present at all times to make everything perfect, but they are not intrusive. They seem to really "get it", also seem to love it, always having a great time and being in great moods. We loved the fresh food, the huge gardens, the 1000s of books and free DVDs, flat screen TVs, wireless internet, I could go on and on. All this and the rates are not outrageous at all. My wife and I absolutely recommend The Yelton Manor B&B and we will be returning as often as we can. One hour out of Kazoo, but stepping into a star-lit, quiet, relaxed paradise.

This is the Top of the Crop without fail. The staff is hard working to make sure you have the best of the best, the housekeepers are quick and excellent and the best part about it is the fact that the owners will always have time for their guests. Of course there are always plenty of things to do.....read, relax in one of many salons, porches, the widows watch or enjoy some friendly conversation with many of the other guests. The added little touches make staying at this inn the reason to return time and again.
