Family together at the table - Wickwood Inn

Family Gatherings at the Wickwood

Sometimes getting the whole family together for the holidays just isn’t possible. But don’t scrap the whole idea of a gathering with your kin—just think creatively: Find a weekend this fall to bring your loved ones to the Wickwood Inn.

Located just two hours from Chicago and three hours from Detroit, the Wickwood makes for a perfect gathering place. Our ever-comfortable inn can accommodate up to 22 guests right in the heart of downtown Saugatuck, a town legendary for its striking scenery and action. As the familiarity of life gives way to mellow rolling dunes and lush nature preserves, you’ll feel your muscles loosen. Your mind clear. And you’ll be ready to take advantage of Saugatuck’s endless variety of outdoor settings and activities.

But first: Let us pamper you. 

Wake up in one of our ridiculously comfortable beds, featuring airy Vispring mattresses made of hand-tufted British wool. Relax in a velour terry cloth La Bottega robe with a cup of our house blend coffee; shower in a gleaming Waterworks shower surrounded by exquisitely designed marble subway tile walls; dry yourself with opulent Matoük towels. And when you’re ready, join the rest of your family in our cozy dining room for a seasonal New American breakfast.

~ Louis Zamperini

From there, the options are many.

With Saugatuck’s sand, water, hiking trails, and independent shops at their fingertips, your family can spend quality time in any number of ways. You might delve into the town’s abundant wellness options, including yoga classes, massage, and aromatherapy, or wander in and out of Saugatuck’s diverse art galleries, shopping and mingling with artists. Or explore the quiet woods and dunes on snowshoes or cross-country skis then reward yourselves by sipping wine at a local vineyard or sampling cider in the heart of the region’s “fruit belt.”

Return to the inn for afternoon sweets and curl up in front of the fire under an ultrasoft ALT For Living cashmere throw and a good book. And if you’re still craving that big family dinner, we’ve got a few fun and lovely suggestions for a private celebration. At the end of the day, you’ll sink into that cloudlike bed—exhausted, satisfied, and basking in the love of your family.

Whether you reserve a few rooms or the entire inn for your family getaway, let our experienced team at the Wickwood Inn take care of you. Your family will not forget it.
