The best in town

5 on November 08, 2012

We recently stayed at the Wickwood Inn and could not have been more pleased. We have also stayed at other Bed & Breakfasts in Saugatuck, and while nice, nothing can compare to the Wickwood. The beautiful decor of the historic Inn charms you the moment you walk in. The Innkeepers are very friendly and helpful and tempted us with homemade goodies afternoon and evening and brought early morning coffee right outside our door! Our room was beautifully appointed, super clean and cozy. The food is the best thing though. We were amazed at the quantity and creativity of evening appetizers and the morning brunch. Everything was so delicious, and we were served something different each evening and morning. Cookbook author Julee Rosso's recipes really shine in her Inn. You just can't beat this beautiful Inn for your stay. It is also very conveniently located to everything in town - great walks every day.

Home away from home

5 on November 05, 2011

We stay here a couple times a year for a quick get-away, usually 3-4 days. I almost look forward to bad weather so that I can sit by the fireplace or on the porch to read, enjoy the snacks, and sip coffee or tea. Shopping, restaurants, and the marina are only a block or two away. Buffet breakfast is gourmet. Staff anticipates needs and unobtrusively meets them. One of us is disabled, and they quickly figured out what they need to do to comfortably accommodate us. We look forward to our next visit.

A amazing weekend!!!

I can't say enough good things about our anniversary weekend stay. WOW was the first thing we said when we walked up to the entranceway. It was simply gorgeous. From the moment we checked in and saw our room we knew we made the right choice. We stayed in the lodge room and i highly recommend it!!! It beautiful fireplace and queen bed with the most comfortable bedding and our bathroom made it home away from home. Gretchen was the endkeeper while we were there and she was great. Breakfast each morning was wonderful and sooooo fresh!!!! The wine and appetizer hour was fun and we got to meet a great group of people from all over.The food was amazingly plentiful and exceptional.You are truely treated very special. We will definitely return to Wickwood and have been raving about it to all our freinds since we returned. Thank you for a weekend to remember!!!!! Michael and Jamie

Great food as one would expect from a Inn owned by a cookbook author.Very accommadating staff and location is very convenient to shops,galleries,the river. That said the room was quite small with only one chair-may vary with which room you are in.

It's true. You may feel just a bit more sophisticated upon entering this room. Guests are never sure if it's the rich chocolate brown and camel colored decor, the accent of Cheetah, or the strength of the strutting chrome horse that makes them feel this way. No matter. Your Private Bath is stocked with amenities, and Wine and Hors d' oeuvres await you in the Dining Room.
