My wife and I stay at this beautiful B&B approximately 3 times a year. It rests on a hill next to, and overlooking the South Haven Harbor. It is a short walk (1 block) to a really nice beach.
You can literally walk from the Inn to town with all their interesting shops and great restaurants. Or walk along the beach, out on the piers. There is plenty to do, or . . . more so (for me) a wonderful place to relax and just "be". The breakfasts at the Inn are fantastic. It puts other B&B's to shame. Likewise the evening appetizers would temp one to skip any plans for going out to dinner (although we always look forward to walking to one of the nice restaurants in town). There has only been improvement to the quality and service over the years we have been staying there. The husband and wife owners are entirely involved with every aspect of the operation and are genuine and nice people. The Inn is clean, quaint, beautiful and very interesting.
A little pricey maybe, but worth it.
I would advise anyone to book a stay way in advance because even though it feels like 'the best kept secrect" while your there . . . the secret has gotten out somewhat and the reservations can be a year out.
