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.
