Reviewed 12 August 2012

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 Victorian style but with modern comfort and facilities. In all a lovely place to spend time in a gorgeous part of Michigan

Room Tip: River view room at front of house have balconies

Clean, comfortables beds, friendly staff, delicious breakfast and helpful dining recommendations make Carriage House a top place to stay in South Haven. It's close the beach, shops and attractions. Their common areas are comfortable and the breakfast rooms have great views of the harbor. Amenities include robes, jetted tub (some suites), evening snacks, and a nice coffee and juice bar in the morning. Rooms are on three different levels with stairs (no elevator) and ground-level rooms are available. On a personal note, we had a special dietary need in our group which they gladly accommodated. We'll stay there again.

Rooms were clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Loved sitting on the balcony in our rocking chairs looking at the harbor. Terriffic location...close to the beach and town. We will defintiely go back!

We spent last weekend at Carriage House with 4 other couples. We could not have had a better get away. Went biking on the Kal-Haven trail, visited Saugatuck, and had the beautiful Carriage House to come home to. Amy did a great job, (and quick wit) of making us feel welcome. Best breakfast ever...worth the trip for the Carriage House Eggs..

We had visited several years prior, and everything is still top notch. Location is wonderful, walking distance to everything...you can't go wrong!

Room Tip: all rooms are great - several have balconies overlooking the harbour. Lovely...

While fairly new to the B&B experience, this is a benchmark others should be judged against in comparison. The rooms were comfortable and quiet with a great view of the marina from our private deck. The location put it in easy walking distance of the historic part of town along with a few easy minutes to the beech. The staff could not have been more helpful and helped us extend our stay an extra day even though it was peak season. Don't miss the breakfast.
We were in town for a wedding and will have an easy decision on where to stay for our next visit.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony facing the marina are a great place to relax any time of day.

The Carrige House at the Harbor is our favorite place to stay in South Haven. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The house is very nice, clean and in a great location (a block from the beach and an easy walk into town). We like to get a room with a balcony so we can watch the boats in the harbor. Breakfast is also a real treat at the Carriage House as they serve a gourmet style meal to perfection. They also have bottled water available all day and popcorn and cookies are provided in the afternoon. We always enjoy our visit and would highly recommend it to couples who are looking for an enjoyable stay in South Haven.

We stayed here as one of three B&B's to celebrate our 15th anniversary. In terms of convenience and location this was the best of the three and all 3 were incredible. The location here is fantastic! South Haven is a perfect little harbor town with a great lighthouse, beaches, beautiful views, and great food.

We stayed in "The Barouche" room which has a great private balcony overlooking South Haven's harbor. I absolutely loved this place and wish we had stayed longer!

Room Tip: The Barouche is VERY nice!
