No Open Flame - No Smoking

For the comfort and safety of our guests, all interior areas of Wickwood are entirely smoke-free, prohibiting the use of open flame devices such as candles, incense, and essential oils (diffusing, vaporizing, etc.) as well as the use of cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes and marijuana in compliance with Michigan State Laws. These items and activities will set off our smoke alarm and will result in a $250 cleaning fee added to your bill.

While we are pet lovers, we do not allow pets to visit or stay overnight at the Wickwood Inn. Please call us for a recommendation for boarding your pet.


Check-in is between 4 – 7 p.m. Please confirm specific arrival time via email if possible or respond to reminder email 48 priors to arrival. If you arrive before check-in time, you are welcome to park in our private parking lot. If you plan on arriving after 7:00 p.m., please call (269) 857-1465 in advance for special arrangements.


Check-out is at 11 a.m. If you want to enjoy your last day in Saugatuck, we are happy to have you utilize our parking lot until 3 p.m.


Due to the small size of our property, cancellations affect us significantly. For any individual cancellation or change of date, please contact us 15 days prior to arrival by telephone for a refund of your deposit, less a $50.00 per room cancellation fee.

If a full or partial cancellation or change of dates is made within 15 days, regardless of reason, you are financially responsible for the entire reservation, unless we can re-book your room for the entire booked stay.

All group bookings require a 30-day notice to cancel, change dates, or length of stay, less the $50 per room cancellation fee.

We encourage the purchase of travel insurance to provide reimbursement due to personal health issues, family emergencies, or travel delays.
