We all want to get back to normal, but let’s take that slow winding road. Road trips, beach walks, hikes and bike rides, sailing and kayaking give you a chance to relax, breathe deeply, and reflect on how lucky we all are. At Wickwood Inn we live surrounded by the West Michigan big outdoors, natural areas, dunes and fresh water. Beaches are everywhere with gentle warm breezes blowing from across the Great Lake Michigan. We live in a small village where you can stroll and meander to all the things to do in Saugatuck. After so much stress, travel to where you can feel at peace.
The Wickwood Inn, our romantic Saugatuck bed and breakfast in the very heart of downtown, awaits your arrival. Discover just how much our charming boutique hotel loves good food. Everyday we share our newest recipes as you gather with fellow food lovers at the Inn. We love it when our hotel guests bond over interesting flavors. We even season with a generous dash of laughter—our secret ingredient.
It all comes naturally near the shores of Lake Michigan. Our owner and best-selling Silver Palate Cookbook author, Julee Rosso, sources the freshest local ingredients. All are cooked simply so that every bite bursts with flavor. That’s always been her cooking signature. You’ll taste the difference. Enjoy our Farm to Table Breakfasts, Afternoon and even Evening Sweets—all with our compliments.
Get away to Saugatuck’s most romantic bed and breakfast. You’ll find Wickwood’s décor is sophisticated, luxurious and relaxing. Our eleven Guestrooms and four Living Rooms each have unique timeless designer décor. Also, enjoy fresh flowers, original fine art, a library and private bath. Each room provides a sanctuary of romantic relaxation to reconnect and refresh. So, there is space enough to be as social or private as you wish. And, you experience surprises and delights at every turn.
The downtown streets of beautiful Saugatuck are just outside our front door. And, our staff go all out providing you with the insider secrets to explore all of our villages. There are twenty places to dine within a ten minute walk. Thirty-seven Craft Drink Tasting spots, including wineries, cider mills, breweries, and distillers are within a ten minute drive. Countless unique shops, boutiques and art galleries line our streets. Four golf courses are nearby. Our big beautiful blue fresh water surrounds us with the activities it provides. Walk the docks, fish all day or sail into a spectacular sunset. Wickwood’s Innkeepers help make your days as active or relaxing as you wish. Because we love where we live and we want you to love it, too.
