Welcome To The Wickwood Inn Our Food Lovers Hotel In Downtown Saugatuck, Michigan

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”  — Ram Dass


Stay Safe.  Stay Strong, and Stay Positive, Friends!!

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.
