Yelton Manor B&B does everything right. In a world of empty vacation rentals and smarmy highway motels, The Yelton is the ultimate way to travel in style. The rates are low if you consider the all-inclusive values. We appreciate that the inn is "Adults Only", whew, sometimes we need just that kind of quiet space. Most amazing if all: crazy...

Over my daughter's break from school we decided to spend a weekend at the Yelton Manor in South Haven and it was delightful!! The hosts were amazing and very knowledgeable about the area. The manor was super clean and well maintained. Most of the food is homemade with ingredients from their own garden. I highly recommend the brownies and blueberry...

We highly recommend Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast if you need to relax and renew and be pampered! The hosts make you feel at home and the food is healthy and delicious. There is always popcorn, brownies and fruit to munch on as you play games or tuck in to a quiet place with one of their many books. Lake...

What a wonderful few days we enjoyed at The Yelton Manor! The beauty of this Victorian Inn was surpassed only by the gracious hospitality of the owners, Elaine and Rob!

The Yelton Manor B&B is perfectly located in South Haven, Michigan. The Lake Michigan beach is right across the street and the shops & restaurants are an easy 10 minute walk away. All of the common areas are thoughtfully decorated and extremely clean. The gardens alone will make your trip worthwhile. We had originally reserved a gorgeous room on the...

We enjoyed hosting you for you extended stay! Thanks for enjoying the gardens, which are now gorgeous all the way into the winter months due to the sustainable dunescape of perennial grasses in full bloom through the fall. I hope you'll return again soon!

These two homes are just incredible. The common areas and book collections alone are worth the notion to stay here. It almost made us wish for a rainy day so we had an excuse to stay in all day and relax. First the Room, the Biltmore. One of the more unusual room layouts we have encountered and it quickly charmed...

We were very fortunate that our decision to spend the night in South Haven led us to Yelton Manor after reading many helpful and positive reviews. We were not disappointed! We were greeted by Robert who explained in careful detail about the Manor, how to get to the nearby beach and restaurants/shopping. Our room was on the third floor and...

We loved The Yelton! We have stayed @ B&Bs from Maine to Michigan. This one is spotlessly clean from top to bottom. Loved our room, The Magnolia. Clean, comfortable and relaxing. Awesome book nooks filled every corner of the home. The enclosed porches are so inviting, filled either with books or ferns, depending on the specific porch. The outdoor patio...
