Good Food

Bringing people together for good food is what Wickwood Inn is all about. The celebration of our agricultural diversity and abundance begins as soon as you step inside our doors. Our obsession for finding the freshest and the best means that every bite of our complimentary Sips & Small Plates, Farm To Table Brunch, and Sweets & Treats is bursting with flavor.

Like all good foodies, we know you’ll want to explore the food and beverage scene beyond our doors. Consider our staff your personal guides. Our innkeepers are happy to find out what you’re hungering and thirsting for and direct you to the best restaurants, farmers’ markets, fruit stands, vineyards, orchards, and health food stores in the area. Whether it’s the bustle of the Holland Farmers’ Market, the freshness of offerings at Farm House and Grow, the network of trails, markets, and delightfully crisp ciders at Virtue, the most charming artisan cheese stand we’ve ever seen at Evergreen Lane Creamery, or an idyllic tour through the grapes at Fenn Valley, we will set you up for a tantalizing day of tastes.

Great Outdoors

It’s that magical time of year when something new appears every day: Crocus, Daffodil, Tulips, Star Magnolia, Lilacs, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, Baltimore Orioles, and Hummingbirds … each day something new bursts into bloom and arrives an the scene. Of course, we thrill to find our first fresh stalks of asparagus, that elusive patch of morels, and the initial signs of berries ripening in the fields.

Explore our award winning Oval Beach, lose yourself in the towering dunes and expansive trails at the Saugatuck Dunes State Park, lose track of time along country roads and find Art Studios, Fruit stands, and Orchards … even a Lavender Farm. Spend a morning or an afternoon on one of our expertly designed golf courses. Get out on the water. The Kalamazoo River, Lake Kalamazoo, and Lake Michigan set a phenomenal backdrop for our entire village.

Fun Fitness & Healthy Things To Do

Even staying fit feels easier when you’re on a getaway to Wickwood Inn. Satya yoga, offering all-level classes, seven days a week, is just across the street. Hop on the chain ferry and tackle the 303 steps up Mt. Baldhead. Need a little more? Go for another couple of rounds. Hike the stunning dune trails at the Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area or the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Bike for miles and miles along country roads. Choose your version of paddle (canoe, kayak, stand up) and get out on the water. Take a cardio drumming class at Encompass Wellness or hit the machines at Blue Star Community gym or Snap Fitness.

Exciting Adventures

Rent a vintage electric boat and cruise along the river. Book a fishing charter and find out about today’s catch. Get your ticket to ride The Harbor Duck or thrill in an afternoon on the Saugatuck Dune Rides. Take a sunset sail with Captain Mort. Hop on the Star of Saugatuck and enjoy a steam driven paddleboat tour up and down the River. Reserve a wagon tour (that includes plenty of tasting!) at Fenn Valley Vineyards. Brew a batch of your own, specialty beer at Saugatuck Brewing.

Inspiring Arts

Experience an open studio or take a class at Ox-Bow School Of Arts. Attend an  exhibition at one of the many galleries around town. Don’t miss Water Street Gallery, LaFontsee, Peachbelt Studio, Jeff Blandford Gallery, and James Brandess Gallery. See a concert or a show on the main stage at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts.

Of course, there’s also live music all over town. Chamber Music Festival. Wednesday night concerts in the Park. The Felt Mansion Concert Series, and so much more.

Complete Relaxation

When you’re ready to just wind down, we’ve got that covered, too. Take time on our porches or gazebo to simply sit. Curl up with a good book and leave your phone behind. Stroll through downtown Saugatuck and see what catches your eye. Buy a beautiful bottle of wine from Mike at Wine Sellers (just down the street) and sip away the evening. Pack a beautiful picnic (Farm House pantry has everything you need!) and head to Douglas beach to watch the sunset. Take a sunset sail or simply stroll along the docks enjoying an ice cream cone.

Yep. All this, and so much more, is possible when you reserve a getaway to Wickwood Inn in Saugatuck.

We hope to see you soon!
