Voted Best Bed and Breakfast in the State for 2006 by Lake Magazine Travelers. This beautiful Victorian home offers inviting elegance in a wooded setting. Hardwood floors, leaded-glass windows, and wraparound porch add to the ideal surroundings. Guest rooms are complete with antiques, cozy wing chairs, private baths, Queen Beds and central air. Two suites available: the 1st reproduces the serenity of the Northwoods as a replica of the inside of a log cabin. It includes a stone-mantle gas fireplace, viewed from either the two-person Jacuzzi or the comfort of the bedroom. The 2nd suite features the same amenities but is decorated in the flair of the late 19th century. One room sports a hand-painted mural that transforms the room into a canopied tree loft and is complemented by a gas fireplace. Breakfast is served each morning featuring such favorites as pecan streusel coffeecake, orange French toast, or potato quiche. During the summer guests can swim in the heated pool adorned with dolphins riding the ocean waves, or walk 1/2 block to a Lake Michigan public beach to enjoy spectacular sunsets. Bicycles are available for exploring the scenic lakeshore. In winter, X-country ski or hike along wooded paths, or visit charming Saugatuck.. Separate cottage with fireplace also available.
This spacious room emits sights and smells of the great pine forests, with round log walls, planked ceilings and sanded floors. The bedroom area and attached living room area is decorated with mission style furniture, oriental rugs and framed hand colored plat maps of Saugatuck & Douglas from 1913. There is a double-sided gas fieldstone fireplace which faces the bedroom area and the other side faces the 125 gallon jacuzzi. There is also a wet bar with refrigerator and sink & a separate bath and shower.
Decorated in the flair of the late 19th century, this expansive suite is complete with a Queen-size bed facing a slate-stone gas fireplace and hardwood maple mantel, along with a comfortable sitting area with couch and cozy wing chair. Oriental rugs and eye-catching artwork add finishing touches. The bathroom off this suite sports a Spanish-tiled, two-person 125 Jacuzzi; wet bar complete with sink and refrigerator; and separate shower area.
This romantic room with a whimsical floral motif features a Queen-size bed with mahogany headboard, antique armoire, Oriental rug, two-person sitting area, and has a view of the surrounding woods. The private bathroom includes a large Jacuzzi.
One of Sherwood Forest's most creative rooms! It boasts a professionally hand painted mural covering the entire room, transforming the space into a canopied loft raised high up in the tree tops surrounded by woods. This room is complemented by an oak-mantel gas fireplace and private bathroom with shower.
Featuring deep rose-colored walls, this room has a queen-size bed with a Mahogony headboard. It has a beautiful reading chair and a oriental rug. There is a private bathroom with shower.

Stayed the Sherwood Forest from June 12 to 15, 2011. Keith & Susan Charak couldn't have been more accommodating. Breakfasts were really good and our Victorian suite was even better tnan we expected. Used the pool several hot days and it was great. Enjoyed Saugatuck/Douglas and especially the fine restaurants. Will try to return soon. Joyce & Stan Grau Fort Thomas, Ky.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last summer. Sherwood Forest B&B created so many wonderful memories for us, we hope to return this summer again. Keith was a fun and informative innkeeper.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Sherwood Forest B&B for a weekend at the end of October. Most Michigan resort towns have rolled up their sidewalks by this time, but not Saugatuck and Douglas. Everywhere we went it was quite busy. Especially the dinner spot recommended by the Innkeepers, Everyday People Cafe. We will return if for no other reason than to dine at this excellent restaurant again! The best part of the weekend was our time spent at Sherwood Forest. We enjoyed breakfast and pleasant conversation to start each day, and were able to soak in the relaxing atmosphere throughout the day. Our room was beautiful and huge with the fireplace, living area, and jacuzzi. That was also one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. We will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Wish we would have booked for 3 nights instead of just one. Keith was very nice. Room was fantastic, we stayed in the Log Cabin room.

Lovely very quiet and restful B&B two minutes from the beach and a half hour walk from downtown Saugatuck. Room was tastefully decorated and bathroom with its tub for two was relaxing. Although we did not get a chance to have breakfast as we had to leave too early or partake in the pool and patio, I am sure you would not be disappointed. Welcoming and helpful hosts.

My wife and I stayed at the sherwood bed and breakfast twice and loved every minute of it. We were in the Victorian room. The room was very spacious and clean. The jucuzzi was large and very powerful. The fireplace was beautifully placed, (Very Romantic). The innkeeper were very elegant and charming.
