My husband and I spent a quick one night here to get away and celebrate our 5th anniversary and babymoon before #2 arrives in a month. We were upgraded for no extra cost, to one of the nicest rooms they have, on the day of our arrival. We stayed in the White Chapel. Such a treat. We had a fantastic...

Comfortable room, great view, easy 10 min. walk to downtown, very close to beach, delicious breakfast with just the right portions, great friendly and helpful service. Perfect home base for travel in this area. (The dog is perfectly mannered and friendly.)

Our favorite place to stay. So relaxing. Short walk to the beach, town, restaurants, rent bikes. The breakfasts are delicious and the view of the harbor is beautiful. David, Suzanne and the whole staff are the best. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in South Haven.

Can only reinforce other positive reviews - we loved every minute of our four nights here. Very clean and tastefully decorated guest rooms and common areas. Wonderful breakfasts. Suzanne and David thoughtfully give ideas to fill your day and let you know about local events that otherwise you might miss. A short stroll to the beach or to town; Michigan...

Just returned from 4 nights at the wonderful Carriage House. We couldn't have asked for a more charming inn with fabulous service. Suzanne, the owner, is a delight. The breakfasts were delicious, the rooms extremely comfortable and the staff, very accommodating. Well worth a stay if you're contemplating a trip to South Haven.

Lovely guest house with owners and staff keen to provide for any need. We only mentioned an interest in quilting to find a print off of shops in the area pushed under the door. Very relaxed atmosphere with board games and books provided. Even a fridge with glasses and ice for own wine. Rooms were decadent and maintained in the...

“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.”
