Stay Warm & Have Fun Inn-side In Saugatuck, Michigan
Posted on: December 20, 2019 | Posted in: Things To Do In Saugatuck
It’s warm and toasty in your luxurious room inn-side the Wickwood Inn in Saugatuck, MI, but baby it’s cold outside. Rather than putting on your boots and mittens for a day of play outdoors, you can have a ton of fun exploring the great indoor activities on the Art Coast of Michigan.
Of course, you don’t have to go outside at all! Have a fulfilling day of rest and relaxation at the Wickwood inn-side. Stroll down to the dining room for a true farm-to-table breakfast & begin your day. Appreciate fresh roasted coffee. Feast on scrumptious baked goods, hearty egg dishes, and heart-healthy granola with berries. Then, you curl up with a good book from our library and tuck into one of the cozy reading nooks at Wickwood. Or, choose a CD from the vast collection and mellow out in front of the fireplace.
“I do not go outdoors… As far as I’m concerned, the whole point of living in New York City is indoors. You want greenery? Order the spinach.”
~ David Rakoff
Throughout the day, find all kinds of treats that tempt your sweet tooth. And, in the evening we invite you to gather with other guests for our Sips and Small Plates hour. Enjoy a glass of wine and tantalizing appetizers that we prepare fresh with locally-sourced ingredients. Celebrating something special? Order in advance from our menu of romantic surprises and find the ‘surprises’ in your room on arrival. Finally, plan the ultimate indulgence and book an in-room massage for the complete and perfect Inn-door getaway.
If you do venture beyond the comfy surroundings of the Inn, you’ll still find plenty of ways to amuse yourself in the lovely villages of Saugatuck and Douglas without spending much of your time in the great outdoors. Try bowling at Alley’s Diner or chalk up a cue at the Saugatuck Brewing Company for a friendly game of pool. Check out what’s playing on the big screen at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts or go gallery-hopping at the more than 20 galleries and studios that call Saugatuck home.
“After tea it’s back to painting – a large poplar at dusk with a gathering storm. From time to time instead of this evening painting session I go bowling in one of the neighbouring villages, but not very often.”
