Imagine…. We offer suggestions on someone to officiate the ceremony, and delight in all the details of your day alongside you. Exchange your vows in our beautiful gardens or in our gathering spaces at the Inn. Upon request, we assist in finding an off-site location if that is what brings your vision to life! Maybe an Oval Beach wedding or a ceremony in Saugatuck’s picturesque City Hall is what you imagine? Just give us a call and we’d be over the moon to help plan your special day! After all, you should relax and enjoy the best day of your life with the ones you love.

Special Gatherings For Anniversaries, Birthdays, Retirements & Reunions
Why does making plans to celebrate the ones you love often feel stressful? Parties and events have to-do lists that can feel overwhelming. Just call our innkeepers to help you plan the details. Book that special event away from your everyday lives and it’s more refreshing for everyone.
Begin the day with our farm to table gourmet breakfast, enjoy a hike or bike ride along the beach or a morning shopping through the villages. And, don’t miss our Afternoon Sweets! Who doesn’t love freshly baked chocolate chip cookies?
“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.” ~ Maya Angelou
Then visit one of our favorite spots for lunch in Saugatuck. We recommend many, such as Ida Reds, Phil’s and Bowdie’s just to name a few. Or Wickwood can pack you a lunch for your picnic on Lake Michigan. Arrange transportation to nearby vineyards for a day.
Or, have a stunning time together on Retro Boats. Take an afternoon break for massages or reading at the hotel by the fire while you exchange stories. Linger in the Garden Room that’s bursting with fresh flowers. Venture to town for unique retail therapy at Kindel’s or the Saugatuck Antiques Pavilion. Wander into Charlie’s Ice Cream or Kilwin’s Chocolate for a taste of something sweet. Maybe experience a ride on the Saugatuck Chain Ferry – the only remaining chain driven ferry still in use in the country (since 1838!). Enjoy a sunset boat ride along Saugatuck’s Kalamazoo River and on Lake Michigan with your loved ones on the Star of Saugatuck.
Retire in the evening with Wickwood’s Sips & Small Plates hour to taste our very delicious life! Nibble on Curried Squash with Mango Chutney & Roquefort Crostini, Shrimp & Crab Atop Crostini, Spinach Pies, Three Cheese Gougères and much more! The options for great food and memorable moments are endless when you book the entire Inn for your gathering!
We spend a lot of time at our jobs. Investing in rest, fun, and creative planning can be the best way to strengthen your team. Creativity is fed by new experiences, so bring your colleagues to Saugatuck. Experience a unique team building and planning weekend. Come to Wickwood Inn and build new enthusiasm for the work that you do!

Since you have the entire Inn to yourselves, you are ensured that privacy and fun are of the upmost importance! Arrange for Saugatuck’s own Interurban transportation to drive your group on an outing. Plan a team canoe trip in beautiful Wade’s Bayou or go stand-up boarding together at Oval Beach. Take a group hike on the trails along our lakeshore in the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Ride bikes on the Blue Star Bike Trail and play golf at nearby Clearbrook. Enjoy touring local cideries, breweries and wineries for an evening of craft drinks. Ask Wickwood to arrange for a custom private tasting event just for your group.
If more energy is what you want, a fun-filled sunset dune buggy ride with Saugatuck Dune Rides should do the trick! Want an easy evening in? Pick up one of Wickwood Inn library’s many board games for a rousing ice breaker to give everyone’s brain a break and a boost! By the end of the weekend, you leave as refreshed colleagues and stronger friends. What a great environment to go to on Monday morning!
What Others Say…
“My business partners and I chose Wickwood for a small business brainstorming retreat last week. The four of us agree that we made a great choice… It was peaceful and relaxing, we had all of the privacy we needed and the golf was great. Then there were the breakfasts and the nightly appetizers… All agreed that this was one of the most effective and pleasing “working retreats” that we’ve ever participated in. We’re all coming back with our wives soon.” ~ via Trip Advisor
