“Looking forward to our next visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We just returned from a 5 day trip to Northern Michigan...One of ou best highlights was this charming B & B The Inn was the first stop on our little get away and by far the best! The stay was very relaxing and the food was incredible...Janet was our Inn keeper and she was very charming and a great host...The appetizers were so good one night they became our dinner. We were so comfortable. Along with a few other guests we all stayed in..
The Inn is in a great location. It's on a lovely street and walking distance to town.. We are so looking forward to a return visit. We will definately be back

We just returned from one of the very best weekends we've ever had. This wonderful experience began the minute we were welcomed at the front door by a lovely Innkeeper and continued as she gave us a tour of the Inn and offered us the first of many taste treats, chocolate chip cookies that were the best I've ever tasted and I consider myself a wonderful baker. We were shown to a newly decorated suite, The Lodge, that was done in a kahaki linen and a peaceful celedon green. Ever detail was superb and I felt that I simply could have moved right in. We sat and read beside the fire over and over again throughout the weekend. When we weren't eating, that is.There seemed to be a never ending assortment of sweets and snacks being offered to us. We were invited to a marvelous array of Appetizers at the end of the day that include so many various tastes that teased our palates that we decided to pass on dinner. More sweets and more reading by the fireside. At that point we wanted to move right into Wickwood. The next morning we were surprised at the wonderful freshness of the Brunch...marveloous homemade sausage with pistachios and scrambled eggs the likes of which memories are made. Oh, and freshly made pecan sticky buns. I cannot give enough kudos to the superb cooking done on these premises. The next day our palates were teased with even more interesting flavors. We finally had to take a long beach walk to work off some of this delicious fare before indulging again. If you're a lover of good food, you must visit Wickwood for you,too, will rave. The towns of Douglas and Saugatuck are marvels as well. Small jewels along Lake Michigan that are filled to the brim with art galleries and artists studios, artisian foods, local organic farms, and craft beer and cider facilities. There is far more to do here than can be accomplished in just a weekend. We suggest planning for a three or four day weekend or more. During our stay we met several couples who visit Wickwood three or four times a year and now we understand why. It is addictive and we plan on visiting again very soon.

Room Tip: The Lodge is absolutely lovely and spacious. Most comfortable for a long weekend.

This was a surprise getaway from my husband. I love to cook and have several of Julee's Cookbooks. It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary, we didn't have more than a weekend to celebrate, but this was a perfect place to have a romantic and memorable weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms were quaint and beautifully decorated.

Wanted to stay here because as a culinary enthusiast, I have all the Silver Palate cookbooks( the owner of which was one of the partners). I was not disappointed with the food or setting. Lovely place to spend quite weekend in winter.

President's Day weekend in Saugatuck. It's off season, and many of the shops were closed, but we had an excellent time of it, starting with our stay at the Wickwood Inn. Our hostess, Betty, gave us a friendly greeting when we arrived. We stayed for two nights in the English Garden Room (there are eleven rooms, each individually themed and decorated). Our decor was highlighted by a huge glass vase with roses and many artist prints of flowers. The bed was huge and comfortable, and we had two comfortable chairs for relaxing and reading. The Inn has numerous sitting rooms for lounging, sitting by the fire place, or watching the only television in the place - yes, you'll have to depend on yourselves for entertainment. The Inn is only a couple of blocks to the "down town" area of Saugatuck.

Breakfasts were sumptuous and made according to high standards. Fresh fruit is available as a first course, followed by a frittata, tarte, or quiche, depending on the day. Bagels, breads, and rolls are piled high on the buffet ready as is, or toasting. Juice, champagne, and coffee will get rid of any cobwebs you might have in the morning. Betty has a wealth of knowledge of the lay of the land, be it outdoor activities, shopping, dining, or nightlife.

We'll be back to this pleasant home base in an area rich in entertainment possibilities.

Room Tip: If it's possible, try to get a room on the second floor in the "old" portion of the bu...

Finally stayed here after years of wanting to after finding out its Silver Palate connection. (Sadly, I didnt get to meet Julee as I would have liked). We were not disapppointed!

Our hostess was Janet for the whole stay - very gracious, friendly, and customer-oriented.

We had the Vineyard room - decorated in gorgeous reds, had small but cozy sitting area with good reading lights. Comfortable bed with soft linens. Very adequate bathroom for an older building.

The best part was the food - great bite-sized sweets throughout the day & night, den area with various drinks to help yourself to whenever. Evening hors deouvres were fantastic - 6 items, both hot and cold, and two wines to choose from. We weren't shy in helping ourselves and then didn't even need/want to go out for dinner - stayed in and played games in the common area - very nice old-school evening in. Breakfast also had good selection from great recipes. We felt that the rate was warranted because of the abundant food.

Only downsides were that the tub drain didn't hold water so my evening bubble bath was thwarted, and the robes that they offer are very short - and I'm 5'3! But these are minor things that don't detract from our overall impression. We'd stay here again gladly!

Room Tip: Check out the sf of each room so you won't be disappointed in their size.

My second visit, this time with my husband. We had planned on spending two nights to celebrate our 20th anniversary, but instead were having such a great time we stayed four. We simply didn't want to leave.Wickwood just became better with every passing day. Our gracious Hostesses Gretchen, Betty and Nancy charmed us with their banter and gave us ample ideas of the best things to do around town beyond the shops and fabulous galleries. We biked,hiked,kyaked,sailed,fished,danced,brewed beer and slid down a dune.Our room, The Christy was extraordinarily comfortable with a featherbed that was superb. The room seemed to expand as every day we brought in more and more luggage and treasures from shopping. The entire house is so lovely and we enjoyed spending time in the late afternoon reading either in the living room near the fireplace or in the Inns splendid gardens. after dinner we tended to return to the living room as we found the other guests most interesting. Several times we joined another couple for dinner. While we were captivated by the charms of the aforementioned mentioned, it was the glorious food that mesmerized us day after day. Of course, I knew it was great,but now I was experiencing an entirely new season's fare. it made each day an adventure. Just wonderful, My husband became even more enthusiastic about Wickwoodinn than i already was. We have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: We will continue to request The Christy Suite on the second floor. It is quiet, roomy and the bed sl...
