Something a little magical happens in Saugatuck this time of year. Along with the snowflakes, it seems that love is floating in the air, everywhere. This extra bit of wonder makes Saugatuck the ideal place for a romantic Valentine Michigan getaway.

The feeling of love is everywhere, starting with the special menus at restaurants all over town. You won’t want to miss the great view and comforting food of James Beard nominated chef, Matt Millar, at The Southerner. For a romantic dinner, try a cozy table for two at Bowdies Chophouse, Everday People Cafe, or Butch’s Dry Dock.

The galleries and studios will be bustling with activity for Winter Break Gallery Stroll. Be sure and visit James Brandess Studio & Gallery in Saugatuck and Water Street Gallery in Douglas. Of course, while you are enjoying the fine art, you may also want to peak into several of our unique stores and boutiques. Be sure and stop in to buy a beautiful bottle of wine from Mike, our local Level III Sommelier at Wine Sellers.

You can enjoy live music and dance the night away at Saugatuck Brewing, Salt of the Earth, or The What Not Inn.

While there’s love throughout our charming villages, Wickwood Inn is full of romantic (and sweet!) surprises. We’re celebrating at Wickwood February 9 &10, Wednesday the 14th, and throughout the three-day-weekend of February 17,18,19th.

To set the mood, everyone is greeted with  Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Sweets and a glass of pink Champagne upon arrival. The entire Inn is filled with Balloons, and hearts and flowers galore.  Delight in French tulips and Roses … even Rose Petals on the pillows. The days are filled with surprises … morning, afternoon, and nighttime too!  Of course we’ll be serving lots of chocolate: Chocolate Jumbles, Brownie Bites, Chocolate Bark, and Chocolate Chip Cookies. There will be Red Berries and Berry Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce.  Taste our wonderful Artisanal Cheese Board with Rosy Chipotle & Jalapeño Chutney and Brie scattered with dried rose petals.

Want even more romance and relaxation during your sweet Michigan getaway? Order a fully customized couples massage.  Arrange for a bottle of our favorite Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut with flutes ready.  And, reserve a private wine tasting for two at J. Petter Galleries and Wine Bar. Visit our Special Offerings Page to explore even more ways to celebrate your love.

Rooms are filling up fast, so call or book online to reserve your romantic Valentine’s getaway.

Pull up a chair. Take a taste. We adore people who love good food. Come and join us.
