“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2011

We are from Utah and our favorite B&B is in Park City. After moving to Chicago we looked for something that would rival it nearby....we found it at the Carriage House! It was an excellent weekend. Not only did this B&B rival it, it topped it! The view out onto the Harbor was fabulous, the breakfast was the best we've ever had at a B&B and the B&B was clean, quiet and relaxing. David and Suzanne were great and had wonderful suggestions for dinner and things to do. If you go, definitely take the drive to Douglas to eat at Everyday People Cafe. South Haven is a beautiful little community. Walking down the pier and through the shops was so relaxing. We can't wait to go back to Carriage House at the Harbor!!!

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The inn in beautiful. We stayed in the Concord room; beautifully decorated, fireplace and hot tub. The breakfasts are unbelievable; the food is just delicious. David and Suzanne are gracious hosts and very helpful when it comes to suggesting restaurants, things to do, directions to places, etc. It's a great place to get away and just relax.

My husband and I have never stayed in a Bed & Breakfast before, but after this stay, I am not sure our experience could be topped! The room was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and the view was amazing! David and Suzanne are so knowledgeable about the area it is like having your own built in tour guide! This is a MUST stay for anyone wanting that perfect, romantic get-away. The gormet breakfast and smooth coffee starts your day in their breath-taking dining room overlooking the harbor. Then get ready to wind your day up with home-made cookies that hit the spot. The extra touches, amenities and hospitality makes this the best stay in town. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: be sure to ask for a room with a balcony! It is awesome!

After years of trying my wife got me to a B & B; it was a grand experience. David and Suzanne are gracious host and hostess. The breakfast are out of this world. South Haven is one of our favorite places and now we have another reason to vacation here.

This is still a favorite of ours to getaway for a few days. The inn is very cozy, comfortable and clean. The location couldn't be any better being right across from the beach and a five minute walk into town. The owners are very accomodating and treat us just like family coming for a visit. The morning breakfast is delicious. My only complaint is they don't share the recipes! :)

We stayed at the Carriage House this week for 2 nights. It was our first B&B experience and we can't wait to go back. Our hosts, Dave and Suzanne, were marvelous. They gave us wonderful tips on restaurants, activities, etc. The rooms are immaculate and very charming.
There is exceptional attention to every detail, from the beautiful decor to the delicious breakfasts. The location is ideal and the view from our balcony was phenomenal. Oh, we would be remiss if we didn't mention Khaki...what a beautiful, gentle dog! Our experience was a 5-star plus!

My wife and I stayed here for 2 evenings this last weekend. Truly a first rate experience.
Lovely third floor room with a balcony and view of the harbor. Terrific breakfasts both mornings. Great suggestions as to where to go and what to see from David and his wife.
I truly believe this should be the number one (and not number 2) rated b and b in South Haven.
