Nice room, clean and quiet. Great balcony. Breakfast left a little to be desired for a "Bed and Breakfast". Maids were raucous and unprofessional. Outdoor pool area was very nice and relaxing. Would only let us book for a minimum of three nights online because of time of year, but we talked to several couples who called by phone and... More

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast within a block of Lake Michigan. You can walk to town too. We had the Garden Room behind the kitchen which was adorable. You have your own private patio outside. The bed can be King or two twins and were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating.... More

Lovely B&B within walking distance of the beach and historic South Haven Lighthouse! We loved our stay here at the Sand Castle, especially because we were able to book the Tower Suite! Such a great room with comfortable beds and a sweet little balcony. We loved the fireplace in the room, it really allowed for a peaceful night. The women... More

Our bed was very comfortable and we had a cozy fireplace in our lovely room! Brenda whipped up a wonderful special breakfast just for us, as we are trying to eat healthier. She was so friendly and kind it is one reason we decided to stay here. Close to the beach,flowers, and very quiet. Hope to come back someday.

We recently stayed at the Sandcastle for the second time and found it as great as the first time. We had friends with us this time, and they loved it too. Wonderful breakfast, accommodations, location, and friendly innkeepers. We stayed for 4 nights of Labor Day week both last year and this year, and will return next year!

After spending a night here I had to wonder why it cost twenty dollars more than a plush, fully-serviced hotel in Chicago's Gold Coast this September, or indeed fifty dollars more than a beautiful boutique hotel by the water's edge in Manhattan in 2013. This B and B is no more than average, and the price creates false expectations. The... More

My wife and I went for a quick one day trip to South Haven. We are extremely happy that a room was available here. The rooms are beautiful, the hosts are gracious, and the food was terrific. Nice breakfast buffet and chocolate chip cookies in the evening. Would definitely stay here again!!!

This is a very nice Inn with a wonderful location! Across the street from a park, a block from the lake, three blocks from downtown. We had a room with a fireplace & private deck, very comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast was home cooked, much better than the often served bagel, roll & coffee of other places. Staff was friendly, helpful... More

We have been visiting South Haven for about 20 years during the summer and have stayed in a number of the B&Bs in town and hands down, Sand Castle Inn is the best. It has a full buffet breakfast, large rooms with comfortable beds, wonderful vibe, great people who work there, even a heated pool, and one block from the... More
