We are so proud to patronize and feature our local farmers who provide Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast with so much luscious, organic food!
Be sure to consider one of the coolest “things to do” this summer, a Farm Dinner at Seedling Farm!
The authors of the cookbook “Outstanding in the Field”, which I scarfed up and used repeatedly all last summer, are at it again in 2012.
Fresh gourmet food with wine pairings, a truly wonderful adventure, at Seedling Farm.
Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast puts you smack in the center of Michigan’s wine making area. Thanks to the wondrous micro-climate of Lake Michigan, cool in summer and warmer in winter, added to the sandy soil, grape vineyards are all over our area. We can direct you to any and all of them. Except for deep winter, there is always some kind of event wrapped around enjoying our wines, so check it out.
Our favorite is Fenn Valley Vineyards. The wine making and tasting rooms are tucked into the vineyards, making for a complete treat for all the senses. The owners are very hands-on, and the tours get A+ raves from our guests every time.
Just a short trip to the NE of us, with plenty of fun attractions along the way, like nurseries and greenhouses, antique stores, Saugatuck and Douglas for shopping and dining, Crane’s apple Orchards and much more. Our favorite day trip always includes Fenn Valley Winery.
Follow along on more day to day fun on The Manor’s Facebook page!

Your one stop center for information on all things South Haven, Michigan is the local Visitor’s Bureau.
Lodging, attractions, dining, festivals, shopping, the works, it’s all in one easy stop here.
And, of course, when you are a guest at Yelton Manor Bed and Breakfast, we’ll customize your options with exactly what you want to do as well as offer our own suggestions.
Everyday People Cafe is just a short drive north to the quaint resort town of Douglas, MI.
Enjoy a casual, chic attitude, the best food for miles around and, occasionally, live music too.
The menu changes often as the chef riffs on what is fresh in the markets.
Everyday People Cafe is so popular that the wait can be hours at the door. They do not accept reservations, but….they DO accept “call aheads”, exclusively, from us at Yelton Manar B&B. So ask us to make your reservation for you and you’ll slide past that long queue like a rockstar.
Just an easy stroll out Yelton Manor’s door, right downtown, is Maria’s, A Taste of Italy.
We are delighted to have two excellent Italian restaurants in South Haven, and Maria’s is one of them!
With a casual, family atmosphere, Maria’s serves up fresh fare daily for lunch and dinner.
Family owned, with “homemade Italian sausage and homemade Italian meatballs made daily.”
Check out Maria’s menu here!
We recommend reservations and are happy to make them for you.
From drinks and a snack to a gourmet meal, open for lunch and dinner. From their website:
“Whether it’s time to relax after a great round of golf, or go out for a fine dining experience, the Inn at HawksHead is your destination.
The pub’s old time atmosphere and varied menu satisfy all comers. While the main dining room’s understated elegance and gourmet cuisine delight the senses. Both offer panoramic views of the woods and links through floor to ceiling windows.”
Tello Italian Bistro, located right downtown South Haven, is an easy walk from The Yelton Manor’s front door. Family owned and managed, a true South Haven treasure.
Tello offers a cozy and intimate atmosphere suitable for a casual get-together, business dinner or special occasion. Check out their menu here.
We think that they describe it best on their website:
“The atmosphere includes dramatic rum-toned walls and soft glowing candle light. Here you will find rustic wood tables made with the owners own hands combined with an elegant setting of fine china and stemware. Soft jazz plays overhead as the caring and friendly wait staff serves each guest with a comforting smile.
The authentic yet contemporary Italian menu offers the freshest ingredients possible to our guests. We buy our produce from local farmers when it is available and our seafood is flown in fresh multiple times every week.”
Reservations are recommended and can be made directly on the Tello website. We always have their menu available for you to look at and are also happy to make your reservations for you.
