The Wickwood Inn should be your accommodation of choice when planning your engagement getaway. The gorgeous grounds, romantic gazebo, and picturesque arbor are but a few of the places you could pop the question. With an extensive list of romantic surprises and treats, you can delight your partner with chocolate dipped strawberries, a bottle of chilled champagne, a beautiful arrangement of long-stemmed roses or even a special spa treatment to commemorate this momentous occasion. For a truly unique experience, get down on one knee at the Sips and Small Plates at Six event held each evening. What could be more fun than sharing this very special moment with other guests at the Inn?

Get Engaged Near The Water In Saugatuck

Beyond the lovely grounds of Wickwood, the possibilities of where to ask that life-changing question are endless. If your plan includes writing “will you marry me” in the sand, then Oval Beach is a great choice. A wide swath of white sand backed by rolling dunes, Oval Beach has been recognized as one of the Top 25 beaches in the world.

If a gorgeous sunset completes your picture of the perfect proposal, book a sunset cruise aboard the Star of Saugatuck or be the captain of your own boat and rent a classic runabout from Retro Boat Rentals and cruise Lake Michigan or the Kalamazoo River at your own speed.

Want to add a bit of adventure to your proposal? Hop on the hand-pulled chain ferry across the Kalamazoo River and take an exhilarating hike up 302 wooden steps to the summit of Mt. Baldhead. The vista from the top, of Lake Michigan and the villages of Saugatuck and Douglas below, will leave a lasting impression on you both.

The magnificent dunes of Saugatuck Dunes State Park offer an incredible panorama of rolling sand dunes, lush pine woods, and the sparkling water of Lake Michigan. Dig your toes in the sand and propose a lifetime of adventure to your partner here.

Pop The Cork And The Question

Perhaps a glass of wine in a private setting is all you need to seal the deal. Book a private wine tasting at Fenn Valley Winery in Fennville and you’ll receive a custom labeled bottle of sparkling wine to take with you. What could be more romantic than a private label vintage to celebrate your special day?
