A sunset over Lake Michigan is the quintessential photo moment here in South Haven, Michigan. We walk down to see it almost every evening of our lives, and our guests show us their sunsets photos all season long. We’ll be sharing them here for you to see!
The beach, right out the front door of Yelton Manor, is 5 miles of pristine, white sand over clear blue water. There are two huge public beaches, one north and one south of the Black River, and other smaller beach parks dabbled throughout the neighborhoods.
Dead center between North and South Beaches is our town’s treasured landmark, the South Haven Lighthouse. Though no longer needed for guiding watercraft to or from the harbor, the lighthouse is now owned and cared for by the Historical Association of South Haven. The lighthouse is South Haven’s trademark, representing the soul of our community, a metaphor for warm welcome and our beautiful life here. The lighthouse has probably had it’s picture taken more than every super model in the world, combined!
Whether you’re a local or a visitor, everyone makes the sunset the most important agenda item of each day. We stop, breathe, experience the calm, the gratitude, the love.
