We went here for a short couple's getaway! What a great time! The Sandcastle Inn was within walking distance to the downtown area of South Haven with great restaurants and bars.Also down the street from the beach! We had a room with a patio, which was great in September when we visited. The pool was small yet very warm and...

The Sand Castle Inn was the first bed and breakfast stay for my girlfriend and I. All of the rooms were very clean and the breakfast provided was always tasty. This B&B from what I gathered from the other guests isn't a traditional B&B with the innkeepers living on the premises. I would definitely recommend staying here, the location can...

We stayed in the Crown Room and the weekend of our stay was an important reprieve from a very stressful month at work. Kind of a last minute decision to get away, this inn gave us what we needed. Being mid October, the weather was cool but sunny and the glass panels on the front porch was richly warm and...

My husband and I stayed at the Sand Castle Inn for a birthday weekend. We were in the Tower Suite and loved it. Very spacious, huge bathroom (but small shower), deck, cozy fireplace, and nice furniture. There was a vaulted ceiling which made the room feel even bigger. It was completely private as we were the only room on the...

I booked a room at the Sand Castle Inn just a couple of days before our weekend getaway. I researched quite a few BnBs in South Haven and I'm glad I stayed with Sand Castle. The location is fantastic, only a block from the beach. We stayed in the Garden Room, which was clean, good-sized, and very comfortable. The staff...

I took a friend to The Sand Castle Inn to celebrate her 50th birthday. We stayed in the Tower Room. We were more than pleased with our stay. The Innkeeper and her staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. We arrived early and although our room was not yet ready, they gave us our parking pass and directions...

My wife and I stayed at The Sand Castle Inn for a weekend. it was our first Bed & Breakfast experience. Overall, we were extremely satisfied. From the moment we walked in, we felt very at home, and it was easy to relax and enjoy ourselves. You could stay in your room if you wanted privacy or hit the town...

This was our first visit to the Sand Castle Inn, staying in the Tower Room. The room was very nice, clean, and spacious. The location was excellent: only a block from the beach and a few blocks from downtown. We stayed two nights. One breakfast was adequate (more akin to a continental breakfast at a hotel) and the other was...

This was our first time staying at The Sand Castle Inn. We stayed int he Garden Room. The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable and clean.

My husband and I recently went for a quick getaway for one night at the Sand Castle. Our room had a king size bed, flat screen TV, electric fireplace and its own private deck on the first floor. It was very clean and the breakfast served the next morning was great. You can't beat the location. It was one block...
