SOUTH HAVEN, MICHIGAN
One of our Local Moto Hub members, mrss1010, suggested this romantic getaway to South Haven Michigan.
We stayed at Inn at the Park, a bed and breakfast walking distance of town. The bed & breakfast was amazing! The hosts greeted you personally at the door, offering their usual early evening snack of crackers, cheese, and wine. After hours, they leave cookies for your midnight craving. They also offer a wonderful seated breakfast in their dining area with juice and coffee included with your stay, all provided by the owners who you meet personally. Quite cozy!
The Inn has menus for many of the town restaurants for you to choose from. Luckily most are walking distance just past the park which is across the street from the Inn and along side the port and lake. Below are the places we ate during our stay.
*Tello's Italian Bistro: walking distance in town and has a nice wine list with homemade pastas and amazing sauces!
*Sophie's Steakhouse: not walking distance but has some great steaks; however they get their steaks from Chicago so if you're from here, you might as well wait until you get home.
*Subs n More: walking distance in town if you want a cheap good sub; they offer pizza too.
The town has plenty of small shops too! We visited the dog store which of course I loved!
We also checked out some of the wine tasting places located only a 15 min drive from the Inn in Coloma, MI; Karma Vista Vineyards and Contessa Wine Cellars. The tastings are free. If you want to satisfy your chocolate fix, you can also do truffle tasting at The Chocolate Garden, a few feet up from Contessa Wine Cellars. Yum! The best truffles I have ever had!
