Wickwood Inn's Celebratory Sips & Small Plates

“If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.”

Our shops, restaurants and galleries are open in Winter, but many guests arrive and never leave Wickwood for days. You may simply read, talk, sleep, journal, sit by the fire, sip and nibble your way through cozy days.

A Winter Wonderland stay at Wickwood Inn provides the perfect backdrop for the ultimate couples retreat: a place where food lovers gather with a few special added ingredients. A rejuvenating getaway with fresh flowers, libraries, games, cozy fireplaces, spectacular in-room massages, fabulous free WiFi, Private baths, music in every room, and scrumptious dining with a luxurious  Gourmet Farm to Table Breakfast, homemade Afternoon and Evening Sweets, and our lavish Sips and Small Plates Hour at Six.

Some of the fresh, Winter favorites we are serving include: Spicy Potato Puffs, Four Cheese Paninis, Crack Crackers with  Spicy Three Pepper Chutney, and Hazelnut Mezzaluna Cookies (definitely a crowd favorite!)

While you’re here, you may also want to walk in the woods, cross country ski, take a sleigh ride in the snow, stroll the art galleries, shop, sample craft beer and cider, taste wine, go antiquing, dine, or dance, the night away. We promise you’ll leave Wickwood relaxed and refreshed.

For Cross Country Skiing and/or Snow Shoeing in the area, try:

  • Saugatuck Dunes State Park
  • Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area
  • Pigeon Creek park and Forest (15 miles)
  • Holland’s Outdoor Discovery Center (10 miles)

Feeling up for a bit more adventure and the need for speed? Why not try the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex Luge Track. Built by an olympian, open to mere mortals, this is one of only four luge tracks that exist in the United States.

Shorter in length than the Olympic tracks in Lake Placid and Salt Lake City, the Muskegon track provides an Olympic thrill with the safety of the participant in mind

A Winter Getaway to Wickwood also makes it easy to stick to those New Year’s fitness-related resolutions. Walk-in to a yoga class any day of the week at our welcoming, all-levels yoga studio (Satya) located just across the street.  Get in your weights and/or your cardio fix at the Blue Star Community Gym or Snap Fitness.

To wind down for the evening, try an intimate dining at Bowdie’s Chop House, The Southerner, Everyday People Cafe, Phil’s Grill, or Hercules.

Now is the perfect time to snuggle up with Wickwood’s Cozy Winter Rates. Weekday rates begin at just $199 and weekend rates starting as low as $249. These rates won’t last long, so reserve your Romantic Winter Wonderland Getaway today!
