Absolutely the cleanest/neatest B&B in a long time!! And, the breakfast buffet was over the top -- delicious, hearty, and beautifully presented! Great location -- wonderful view of Lake Michigan. Highly recommend.

My fiancée and I stayed here in early March and had an AMAZING experience. From the moment Bill greeted us with a warm smile, entering his home felt like stepping into a dream. The Morning Room was adorable, charming, warm, and incredibly affordable for unparalleled service and amenities. We walked through a well-stocked living room and into a stunning sun...

Really enjoyed our getaway to South Cliff Inn. The innkeepers, Bill and Mark, were warm and welcoming. And, they made one of the best breakfasts I've had in years. Our room was charming and comfortable looking right over the lake. Confident that we will be back again!

In this case, it's as good as they say - I booked for the view and bcs of the other positive reviews on this site. What we got were gracious hosts, comfortable accommodations with a lovely view, and breakfasts that were prepared with an attention to detail and flavor beyond typical b&b fare.

Cozy, beautifully decorated, awesome fireplace, amazing jacuzzi tub and balcony that overlooks the lake and garden. Breakfast is an amazing buffet of fresh fruit, strudel cakes, coffeecakes, frittata's, Toast,...

South Cliff B & B is run by a chef - he is fantastic. This place is great: incredible breakfast, magical views of Lake Michigan, clean and quiet. The owner also really knows St Joseph MI and he can direct you to all of the sights and activities. St Joe has much more to offer than we ever knew. If...

Our flight was cancelled causing us to have to find another airline to make the trip. Our new flight had us arriving at the bed and breakfast approximately 5 hours later than we were expecting to. Bill, the owner, was most gracious and understanding and welcomed us! We found a wonderful room overlooking Lake Michigan. We were tired and hungry...Bill...

My husband and I spent a couple of nights here in September and had a great time. Bill and Mark are excellent hosts and their breakfasts are terrific. We stayed in the Sunset Room and wow what a view. There is a small private deck off the room and the views of Lake Michigan are wonderful. It is appropriately named...
