Wickwood Inn + Saugatuck, Michigan = Your Perfect Summer Getaway
Posted on: May 27, 2016 | Posted in: Getaways
What makes a great summer getaway? For many of us, it’s finding that perfect balance between activity and indulgence. That’s right, we want to escape from it all – while still having it all – and we want to feel good while we’re doing it.
That may sound impossible, but who says we can’t have it all?
Plan your Saugatuck summer getaway, reserve your room at Wickwood Inn, and explore what’s possible!
Simply making a reservation at Wickwood has your ideal summer getaway well on its way.
First, there’s Wickwood’s perfect location. Just pull into our easy access (and free!) parking lot … your adventure awaits. In the heart of downtown Saugatuck, we’re located near the many Saugatuck summer events and everything else the village has to offer: Saugatuck Center For The Arts, our farmers’ market, unique shops, galleries, award winning restaurants, bars, boutiques, coffee houses and tasting rooms are within easy walking distance. What makes all of this truly special is how seriously this community takes the word LOCAL. From the locally roasted cup of full-flavored coffee at Uncommon Grounds, to the freshly brewed beer from Saugatuck Brewing, this village is bursting with people who create, produce, and enjoy excellence. No matter your want, mood, or need … downtown Saugatuck has you covered.
It’s easy to walk everywhere. But if you’re looking for a little further adventure, why not jump on a bike and stretch your range? On two wheels, you can access everything: our award winning Oval Beach, the Blue Coast Artist Studios that dot the country roads, and the orchards, vineyards, farms and fruit stands where you can taste the abundance of our agriculturally diverse area.
If you’re ready to get out on the water, there’s no shortage of opportunities in this town. Glide along on a kayak or stand up paddleboard. Charter a fishing trip or a sunset sail. Paddle your way to the big lake in a canoe or go along for the ride on the Harbor Duck or Star of Saugatuck.
Maybe you want to lose yourself in the beauty of the birds and the trails at the Saugatuck Dunes State Park? Its breathtaking views of Lake Michigan, and its sparsely populated beachfront, make it an idyllic place to lose track of time. No matter if you hike, bike, run, or play disc golf … this locals’ favorite is a real gem.
If you’re in the mood to keep up your current workout routine, that’s not a problem. Blue Star Community Gym has everything you need and will be happy to see you.
If you’re a committed yogi or want to try a yoga class for the first time, Satya Yoga (just across the street) has classes everyday of the week for all levels.
The fun part of all that’s possible in Saugatuck is how EASY it is to DO IT ALL! You never have to waste time in long lines or traffic jams. The Grand Rapids Restaurant Of The Year for 2015, Bowdies, is a one minute walk from your Off Broadway Show at Mason Street Warehouse. The iconic Saugatuck Chain Ferry (just down the block) takes you to our outstanding Pump House Museum and the base of Mt. Baldhead … where you can climb its 282 steps up for stunning views with water on all sides. From there, you can descend to Oval Beach or head back to town for some shopping and locally made gelato.
At Wickwood, we have also tried to anticipate your every need, and our attention to detail is simply part of your stay. From the freshly brewed, locally roasted coffee brought to your door in the morning, our Farm To Table Brunch, Sweets & Treats throughout the day, and our Evening Sips & Small Plates … we offer you options to be as healthy (or as indulgent) as you like. Everything is bursting with flavor.
After just a few days of moving in this way, at the pace you determine, you’ll be amazed at how relaxed and rejuvenated you feel.
