My family and I stayed in two rooms at the Wickwood Inn, the Swedish Cottage and the The Vineyard roms, May 31st - June 2nd. We've been looking forward to the stay especially with my mother-in-law being a home economics teacher and fan of Julee Rosso. The rooms we found very tight, especially the Swedish Cottage. It was not a tasteful retreat but packed with stuff, a worn carpet, and a dirty, exceptionally tight bathroom. Except for the two first floor rooms, with a tight entry...forget about accessibility. Then, coming out of the room one evening, there was water pouring down from the upstairs room into the front hallway. This is a major warning that there can be mold between the floor joists. The innkeeper simply said no worries...this happens when the upstairs shower is running. Has this place been inspected?
The living areas, in front were very nice and cozy. I enjoyed those spaces much more, when it was not crammed with guests devouring the evening appetizers. I'm not going to deny that they weren't great, but get there on time or there's none left. Breakfast on the other hand was very tasty...the breakfasts servings, albeit served buffet, were terrific and unique.
The highlights were the breakfasts, relaxing living room space and a great setting--Saugatuck. Downside is I do not believe the $325+/night cost was worthy of the conditions and cleanliness in the hotel. Next time, we're going to look for a more spacious, cleaner B&B for a better price in Saugatuck.
