This Is The Wickwood Inn Recipe For A Wine And Food Lovers Romantic Stay!

For wine and food lovers, when it’s time to up the romance, it’s time to plan a winter getaway to Saugatuck. Here at the Wickwood Inn we specialize in romance. With a reputation as a food lover’s dream destination, and Travel and Leisure’s designation as “one of the world’s most romantic inns” you’ll find all the ingredients you need to create the perfect romantic interlude for just the two of you. Here’s our recipe for a very special winter wine retreat.

Stay in Wickwood’s Vineyard Room. This is a must-do for wine and food lovers!  Lavish furnishings include a King bed with an optional featherbed, draped in French country toile quilts and luxurious linens. Feel like you just returned from a whirlwind trip through the vineyards of Burgundy. Framed botanical prints adorn the walls.  A grape picker’s basket sits casually above an antique armoire.  Original watercolors complete the ambiance. Kashmere robes, Turkish towels, and London Collection amenities await you in the private en suite bath. Start your day with our signature farm-to-table breakfast, enjoy sweets and treats throughout the day, and unwind at our evening sips and small plates hour.

Up the ante and add our Bubbles & Chocolate surprise package to your stay. Imagine you open the door to your room and find a bottle of Italian Prosecco on ice. That, plus beautiful Champagne bucket with flutes and fine chocolates await your arrival. Or, take it up another notch and order a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and chocolate covered strawberries.

Journey to Fenn Valley Winery for a winter cellar tour.  Then, stop by the new Modales Wines to sample the handcrafted wines, estate-grown in the fruit belt of Michigan. Located in charming Fennville, these two vineyards strive to take the mystery out of fermenting fine wine.  They make the experience approachable by showing you how climate and terroir influence taste.

Bundle up for an adventure in the snow!  Enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride led by a team of gorgeous Percherons at Virtue Cider. Glide across the snow through the beautiful grounds.  Plus, wine and food lovers love Virtue’s ciders.  Wander in for a cider tasting at the Taproom and take home a few craft ciders from their Bottle Shop.

Taste wines at the two best Saugatuck wine shops.  The sommelier-owned Wine Sellers of Saugatuck is a short stroll from Wickwood Inn.  Mike’s wine knowledge helps you find the perfect bottle everytime.  The J. Petter Galleries is a delightful fusion of fine art and fine wine.  Find everything you need for a little ‘Vineyard’ gift basket for you or someone you love. Choose artisan cheeses, charcuterie, handmade chocolates and a bottle of fine wine.  Add a small piece of art and ask for their beautiful gift wrap!

Get cozy at a table for two at Bowdie’s Chophouse, Saugatuck’s best steakhouse. With seating for a maximum of 25 patrons and candles on every table, atmosphere is intimate and romantic. Do order a special bottle of wine from their carefully curated wine list.
