Midwest Living Review

Amy S. Eckert
Pamper yourself at this luxurious Victorian B&B on the harbor in South Haven.

Back in 1920, the proprietor of the Carriage House boasted his guests would enjoy "running water in every room." The luxuries have been mounting ever since: crisply ironed sheets and thick duvets, whirlpool tubs and plush bathrobes, free wireless Internet, satellite cable, CD and DVD players, private bathrooms, and salon-quality toiletries. This 1890s Victorian doesn't go over the top with lace and doilies. The inn has a Cape Cod feel appropriate for its spot on the harbor in South Haven. Private balconies, public sun porches and patios take advantage of the surroundings. It's a short walk to the beach and downtown shopping and dining -- though there's little reason to leave the inn once you're settled. Home-baked cookies and popcorn break up the afternoon, and there's an hors d'oeuvres reception each evening. Best of all is the from-scratch gourmet breakfast: homemade scones, flavored butters, delicate quiches and a bounty of locally grown fruit. The Carriage House boasts an 85 percent guest return rate, and it's easy to see why. From $145; rates vary seasonally.
