Loved every minute of our stay - accommodations are first rate.

What a Lovely Respite in the Middle of Town!

5 on August 23, 2013

We knew from Trip Advisor ratings that this would be a good place to stay, but we had no idea HOW good until we spent two nights there this past week. Clean, quiet, cozy, peaceful, beautiful, comfortable, wonderful breakfasts left in our refrigerator for the next morning, little touches like nice robes, umbrellas, beach towels, movies, complete kitchenette, and on and on made this place perfect. And to top it off, just over the garden wall is Butler Street's amazing shopping and dining! I would never consider any other accommodation when visiting Saugatuck. Jonathan and Gary truly thought of everything to make our stay perfect.

Romantic Getaway in a cozy cottage- Bed comfort was only low point

4.2 on May 18, 2013

Took my partner for a surprise birthday getaway weekend to Saugatuck. We live in Chicago and this B&B wasn't too far of a drive, but provided a much needed escape from the hussle and bussle of the city. Check in was a breeze and parking was simple. The owners were very friendly, yet provided us our space. We stayed in the cottage in back to provide us a little more privacy. The Cottage- First and foremost, the grounds are very pretty and there was a gorgeous fountain outside of our window. I highly recommend the private cottage for romantic getaways. We felt like we were all by ourselves, which was something we wanted. The inside is very nice and the space was perfect. Everything we needed was in the room. The jacuzzi tub was huge. It was truly a great experience. The only thing I could truly critique here was the bed. I think it's time for a replacement perhaps. We both woke up barely able to move from the very rock like bed. Our backs were a wreck. Also, the pillows were perhaps the most awful pillows we've ever slept on, ever. Pillows are a quick fix, bed may take longer for them to replace. I should note though that we both have some back issues, so the uncomfortableness of bed may have been intensified due to our previous issues with back. All in all, I would still do it all over again. The town was cold while we were there and rained quite a bit. But...you will never meet friendlier people in your life. Truly ended up being a very memorable experience and we intend to return this summer. And yes, we will still stay at same B&B. Everything else was just perfect!

Our favorite place to get away!

4.4 on March 25, 2013

We've been coming here every year since 2007. The San Juan suite is our favorite. It's always clean, the location can't be beat, and the full kitchen, giant tub, and fireplace are really nice amenities. Gary and Jonathan are great hosts, around if you need them but giving you plenty of privacy. We love this place and always look forward to escaping here in the winter!

Lovely hosts, rooms, and location!

5 on July 02, 2012

Hidden Garden is a gem. The hosts are wonderful and a ready with suggestions for things to do in Saugatuck. The rooms are spotless and large, with comfortable beds, whirlpool tubs, and a small kitchen area. We loved having breakfast muffins and fruit on our schedule rather than that of a traditional B and B. The location is outstanding; it is entirely possible to arrive, park you car, and not use it again until your departure, as all of downtown is just outside your door!

Tuscany Cottage Is Secluded and Relaxing

3.4 on January 21, 2012

We enjoyed our stay in the Tuscany cottage. It was secluded and cozy. There is a nice fireplace. The town of Saugatuck, MI is mainly a summer town, so some of the stores were closed for the winter season.

Great Treasure in Downtown Saugatuck

4.6 on December 01, 2011

I cannot say enough great things about this inn. The location in Saugatuck---right off Butler Street-- is fantastic and convenient. Even more importantly, though, is the private and accomadating environment provided. Gary and Jonathan were very friendly, helpful and generous. The room itself was quiet and clean. This was our third trip to Saugatuck-- each time in a different inn-- and the Hidden Garden Cottages far exceeded our expectations. It was everything we had hoped for and we will definitely be back.

Wonderful Getaway

A very nice cozy hidden getaway spot. A great place to unwind and relax. The shops downtown are all within walking distance and the water is beautiful year round. Can't wait to return!

Our favorite B&B in Saugatuck

5 on November 14, 2011

We stayed at the Hidden Gardens a couple weeks ago and it was a wonderful and relaxing trip. We have stayed at three B7B's now in Saugatuck and this is definately our favorite spot. The inn keepers are great and friendly. They made our stay very comfortable and private. This B&B is right in the middle of downtown and near everything. It's in the perfect location! We will definately be back on our next visit. We stayed in the Orleans cottage and it was great. The tub was awesome, bed was very comfortable. It was nice that they provide a small kitchenette with a mini fridge and microwave. The muffins at breakfast were delicious. I would definately tell all my friends that if they are looking for a perfect place to stay, this is it. It doesn't get any better than this in Saugatuck! Thanks Gary and Jonathon for your warmth and kindness. Katy and Maria
