We three sisters-in-law are looking for a long weekend getaway to Saugatuck to relax and enjoy dining, shopping, and the quaint town of Saugatuck and enjoying some of the area wineries. Wondering if the large suite at the Maplewood would work for the 3 of us. It sounds a little cramped, plus one bathroom for 3 ladies?, but wondering if anyone who has styaed there could offer on aopinion or an alternative for us?
Ship n Shore is a great place to stay. It's on the canal...good views of boats passing by. They have several patio tables And a nice deck, a hot tub, and pool. The rooms are plain, but the surroundings are wonderful. They also have a large group area for when the weather is bad or during the evenings. Breakfast is adequate and included. Good luck!
Went to the Maplewood last winter for a girls weekend. I did not have a chance to look at the suite but I can tell you that while the king room was fine, the bathroom was very small. I also saw a queen room that my two of my friends were in and the same held true. That said you will NOT be disappointed with the place. The owner and the staff were extremely nice and helpful. It is so charming and clean. The location is perfect to walk everywhere easily. There are a few seating areas where you can relax. We had a small sunroom to ourselves one afternoon and just enjoyed playing cards and drinking wine for a couple of hours with noone trying to chase us out. They tell you at check in to treat their house like your own and they mean it. I will always check for rooms there first! Have fun
Hellos sisters- in-law. Staying in Saugatuck on the weekend can be very pricey and needs planning months in advance. I recommend staying in South Haven which is only 30 minutes away. You will pass it on your way from Chicago. If you enjoy scenery I recommend that you stop at Warren Dunes State Park. Next stop is South Haven. There are many chain hotels located on US 31 / I-195 at Phoenix Road. You can take Phoenix Road toward downtown South Haven and the beach and lighthouse. I highly recommend Maria's Italian Restaurant, Su Casa Mexican Restaurant or Clementine's. There are some shops in South Haven but not as many or concentrated as in Saugatuck. The best shops are on Williams Street. Be sure to visit the beach and lighthouse. That may wrap up your first day. Get up the next morning and head to Saugatuck and its sister city Douglas. Finding a parking space on the weekend will be your hardest thing. Park the car and plan to leave it there all day and shop and eat to your hearts content. There are 2 wine tasting shops in Saugatuck, Tabor Hill and Fenn Valley, and they are in the same block. We enjoy Phil's Bar & Grille, The Mermaids on the Kalamazoo River, Pumpernickle's and Marro's Italian Restaurant. A tip on wine buying is to do your tasting and purchasing it then leave your wine at the store and then drive your car to the store later on. You may have to double park but the shop owners will bring the wine to your car for you. Don't forget to visit Douglas which also has shops and restaurants. I have three activities for you to do: 1. Saugatuck Dune Rides are a must for people of all ages, 2. The Star of Saugatuck gives you a tour of the harbor then goes out to Lake Michigan before returning to town and Oval Beach is very nice. I think it is especially nice to sit on the beach in South Haven, watch the waves hit the lighthouse and watch the various boats go in and out of the channel.
You need to make your reservations as soon as possible!!!
Enjoy your trip.
