Open And Amazing In Winter

For many guests, winter is their favorite time of year to visit Wickwood Inn. Why? A Winter Wonderland stay at Wickwood Inn provides the perfect backdrop for your ultimate retreat: a place where food lovers gather with a few special added ingredients.

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
~ John Steinbeck

A rejuvenating getaway with fresh flowers, libraries, games, cozy fireplaces, spectacular in-room massages, fabulous free WiFi, Private baths, music in every room, and scrumptious dining with a luxurious  Gourmet Farm to Table Breakfast, homemade Afternoon and Evening Sweets, and our lavish Sips and Small Plates Hour at Six. Some of the fresh, Winter favorites we are serving include: Spicy Potato Puffs, Four Cheese Paninis, Crack Crackers with  Spicy Three Pepper Chutney, and Hazelnut Mezzaluna Cookies (definitely a crowd favorite!) And, of course, there’s our GREAT OUTDOORS!

And, of course, there’s Saugatuck’s GREAT OUTDOORS! Nature is always open and ready for an adventure! While you’re here, you may want to walk in the woods, cross country ski or take a sleigh ride in the snow. Maybe you snowshoe in Saugatuck for the first time.

And, if you need a little inside warmth, there’s much open for that as well. Stroll the art galleries, shop, sample craft beer and cider, taste wine, go antiquing, dine, or dance, the night away. We promise you’ll leave Wickwood relaxed and refreshed.

Open In Winter For Your Own ‘Olympic’ Experience
