Reviewed 23 December 2006

The owners of this well-appointed establishment make the guests feel welcome and special from the moment you enter. Not only is the property easy to find, but being situated on a large, wooded park-like setting makes it a welcome escape from the crowds of the beach. Excellent food and charming rooms.
We will be back!

We stayed just one night at Monroe Manor on the tail end of a business trip but wish it could have been longer.. Our room was comfortable and everything we need was right at hand. The entire house was charming. Most importantly our hostess was welcoming and warm. We had a terrific time and would definitely go back again. We are new to the B&B experience but we loved it -- so much better than any luxury hotel.

I would give this place 4.5 stars of I could. We stayed at the Monroe Manor to celebrate out first wedding annversary. Overall this is a great B&B. You can tell that the owners care about making it a great place to get away. The food is simply amazing, the rooms clean, and the grounds very well maintained. Although not located next to the water, the benefits of being a five minutes drive away are true ability to get away from it all. Overall a wonderful B&B that I would recommend when needing to get away.

The only small complaint is that they did not have ice and wine glasses available at all times. I'm sure this will be corrected the next time we visit.

Not sure where to start . . . our stay at the Monroe Manor was wonderful! After a long day in town shopping or sunning ourselves on the beautful beach of Lake Michigan, coming back to our room at the Monroe Manor was like coming home. We found ourselves wanting to go back to the B&B to relax and enjoy the jacuzzi, a game of Baggo or just sit and read. The B&B is a vacation all in itself!

Our day would start out with a sumptuous full course gourmet breakfast! This was a pleasant surprise as not all B&B's put out such a spread at breakfast. The breakfast is well thought out, healthy and mouth watering! You have your choice of dining in the beautiful dining room or out on the veranda at your own private table. If you are staying in the Master suite, you may have your food brought to you and dine in your room.

If you stay at the Monroe Manor, take advantage of the jacuzzi! We liked to go in at night after a late dinner. The view of the stars is wonderful! You can't get that view from a B&B in town with all the lights around you.

The owners operate the B&B themselves and are there waiting for you upon check in as well as every day to meet your needs. They are both very friendly and thoughtful in everything they do for you.

Thank you Doug & Nancy for making our 10 year wedding anniversary so memorable! We'll be back!

We got back from our short vacation in South Haven a few days ago. We spent 3 nights at Monroe Manor Inn and had a great time. Our room was spectacular (we chose the Master Suite), and so was the whole house. The owners, Doug and Nancy, did a great job renovating this gorgeous house and were very welcoming. Every morning we were served a tasty breakfast, and at 5pm we enjoyed wine and cheese. You can also relax a huge Jacuzzi in the back yard, or schedule a massage right in the B&B (we had a couples massage and it was probably the best massage we have ever had!). Besides South Haven, we also visited other beach towns in the area worth seeing. The location of Manor Inn was great for many reasons, it is close enough to the highway and far enough from the crowds. If you are looking for a relaxing place, this is the place to pick!

This was my first time staying at the Monroe Manor and it turned out to be a delightful find. It's a beautiful mansion located on a wooded lot just minutes from the main drag in South Haven, but so serene that deer and wild turkey play in the yard. The rooms are quiet and spacious, the bathrooms are totally updated and modern (loved the multiple shower jets!), and there's an outdoor whirlpool tub with a view to the gardens. The Gingerman Race Track is 10 minutes away: came back after a tough day racing and had a great time relaxing on the porch at sunset, with a glass of wine in one hand and a bird guide in the other. Breakfast was another pleasant surprise and worth getting up early for. Nancy is a gracious hostess and a fine cook. The proprietors could not have been more accommodating. This is a romantic getaway for a couple, or a serene place to get some peace and quiet by yourself.

  • Liked — spacious quiet rooms, great bathrooms
  • Disliked — hard to find, bad mapquest directions
  • Tips/Secrets — why stay at a chain hotel when you can get personalized luxury

As we drove onto the grounds of Monroe Manor Inn, we were amazed at the beauty of this historic estate nestled among century old trees and lovely landscaping. Pausing for a few minutes on the invitingly comfortable veranda, confirmed that time spent here would indeed be quiet and relaxing. The owners did a phenomenal job of preserving the original historic decor of the estate both in common areas of the Inn as well as the five suites. The suites included several amenities that makes this Inn top-rated. These include high end bed and bath linens, a towel warmer, and a large granite shower with body sprays. We felt pampered in every respect of our stay.
After a comfortable night's rest in the four poster bed, we joined the other guests on the veranda for a delicious and elegantly served home-cooked breakfast. Our host Nancy, was so careful to make perfect every aspect of the breakfast.
South Haven's downtown and beautiful harbor were only a short five minute drive from the Inn. After spending a day of sight-seeing in either South Haven or one of the nearby towns, it was such a pleasure to return to the peace and quiet of the country estate setting.
We concluded our 2 night stay with wonderful memories and the recipe for the delicious Blueberry upside-down coffee cake.

  • Liked — Quiet location, cleanliness, and outstanding breakfast
  • Disliked — not applicable
  • Tips/Secrets — Only a short distance from the harbor
