We are eagerly looking forward to once again receiving guests here at the Black River Inn.  During this unprecedented and uncertain time Judine and I understand that the health and safety of our guests is paramount.  We have implemented some new procedures to make everyone feel comfortable in regards to sanitation and social distancing.  Some of these measures include:

Face masks available for all our guests

Hand sanitizer or sanitizing cloths available in common areas

Social distancing observed at breakfast

Daily room freshening will only be available upon request

Surfaces sanitized as often as possible, i.e. door handles, counter surfaces, etc.

Rooms and common areas thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after guests leave

We feel these measures along with our already rigorous cleaning standards will assure you of a safe and enjoyable stay with us.


Peaceful country setting yet only minutes from the lake and everything South Haven has to offer.

A two minute walk out the front door to the Kal-Haven Trail featuring hiking, biking and other activities along its 34 miles. We have bicycles available for the guests.

A full breakfast to start off your day in our sunny dining area. Enjoy some tranquil time in our gazebo overlooking the wooded bluff.

Kick back and relax on our brick patio in the afternoon or enjoy sitting by the fire pit with your favorite beverage under the stars.
