Hidden Garden Cottages & Suites

We stayed here for a few nights and had a wonderful time. Stayed in The Orleans and it was perfect. I personally love a firm mattress- slept great. Breakfast was excellent. These fellas have so much class. I cannot imagine someone having a bad time here. We will be back!
We stayed for three nights in the Tuscany cabin right before Memorial Day. The cabin itself was "homey," with a gas fireplace that came in handy given the outdoor temps in the 40s. Everything was clean and well-maintained, and the area was nice and quiet (yet perfectly located for walking around town!). The owners are super friendly and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. We will definitely be back!
Spent a wonderful weekend in the Tuscany Cottage with my partner. The cottage was pleasing with all the amenities we expected and hoped for. We were pleasantly surprised with the fireplace and the daily breakfasts of fresh fruit and homemade muffins. The location of Hidden Gardens is perfect and is close to awesome shops and restaurants. With that, however it still maintained a private and secluded feel. We also appreciated the innkeepers who greeted us enthusiastically and were always friendly and willing to offer assistance.

Beechwood Manor Inn & Cottage

Reviews:
This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it could not have been better. The owners are wonderful and very accommodating. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast was delicious and very filling. They have great breakfast selections and we were able to mix and match items. The location is perfect. It is about a 5 minute walk from the downtown and on a quiet street. I would strongly recommend staying at Beechwood Manor Inn.
I had the best mini vacation and I loved everything about this B&B in fact I'm going to convince my friends to come back for a couples weekend. Food was fantastic the innkeepers were super helpful and very nice.
I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this gem in Saugatuck, MI when I was in town for an annual writing retreat. The house is clean with all the amenities someone would be seeking for fun, comfort, and/or necessity. It is very conveniently located near the charming downtown area but I rather liked that it wasn't smack in the middle of it all - - it's close (quick, 8 - 10 minute walk) but nestled into a quiet neighborhood which is more my cup of tea. Regrettably, I was only able to take part in the breakfasts one morning out of the three that I was there (the retreat I attended also served breakfast) but on the day I dined at the inn, the breakfast was top notch - very flavorful and filling! I had a lot of interaction with the owner, Jamie, and she is MARVELOUS! She is friendly, humorous, and very, very service oriented. I have stayed in a lot of great B&Bs in the states and in Europe and Jamie's warmth and genuine interest in the guest experience is special. Potential guests need to understand and appreciate that it is an older home (which I find full of charm). You will hear people moving about the house and/or in the room next to yours (I stayed in Enid's room); the showers are small and there may not be a lot of "closet" space. That said it has character and comfort in spades. In time, it would be great if they could swap out the wallpaper for fresh paint...I know this is a nit-picky, aesthetics thing but it dates the home in a way that doesn't tie it to a historical era so much as a previous decade.

Twin Oaks Inn

Reviews:
We could not have asked for a better experience. The room was beautifully decorated, clean, and well-maintained while we were there. The hostesses, Sherry and Lisa, are both so friendly and happy to share information about things to do around town and even give personal suggestions (which worked out very well). This place is right at downtown Saugatuck. We were able to walk practically everywhere we wanted to visit. The parking is easy and spacious. And the FOOD...wow! I was delighted with every breakfast we were served. We're talking gourmet-quality dishes. Great coffee, too! You can eat at the dining table, on the covered porch (our favorite), or on the back patio. Plenty of room for all the guests. They have coffee, tea, hot cocoa, ice water, microwave popcorn, and even complimentary amaretto available 24/7. I think we had the smallest room, or one of the smallest, and it was still spacious. And don't worry about staying cool in the summer; there is central air as well as in-room air conditioner. Oh, and free Wi-fi. We already have an inquiry about booking next summer. We plan to return every year, if we can. I also want to mention that our hostesses went above and beyond to accommodate food allergies. They were wonderful about it, and still made very delicious and memorable dishes.
THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE BUNGALOW. It was our third time staying at the Bungalow. We were excited to head back to share it with our 5 month old. While we enjoyed our first two visits, the third left a sour taste in our mouth. The owner nickel and dimed us on the security deposit and did not reimburse us the full amount. One of his arguments was we left a phone book on the floor. I emailed him several times and did not get a response. Needless to say, we will not be returning to the Bungalow.
I have to second the first review. This was a great little bed and breakfast just off the main drags of Saugatuck. The food every morning was great and we took full advantage of the free use of some bikes that they provided!

The Olive Mill

220 Culver St
Saugatuck, 49453
Reviews:
I have gone to this location for the past 3 years and their oils are just amazing. I usually buy 10 bottles every time I go, as I only go once a year, though, this year I have ran out of oil faster than expected and I am in serious need of more of their amazing olive oil. I would appreciate is they had online ordering or a website that works. We have an Olive Mill here in IL as well but their website doesn't work either. :( If you plan on going to Saugatuck or Michigan in general this is a little store that you MUST visit and try their delicious olive oils. It's like wine tasting but with oil. :)
If you have ever been to a wine tasting think of that but using vinegar and oil... doesn't sound appetizing until you've been in there and trust me chances are you'll find something like. I stopped here on a trip me and my boyfriend took about 5 years ago. this is the first place I want to go to this weekend. The oil lasted me almost 3 years and only used on holidays. (Yes its that good) the people that work there recommend what balsamic vinegar and oil pair nicely together just as wine and chocolate. please don't pass this up this will make your trip worthwhile. I recommend the honey balsamic with the lemon oil yummy.
Spent $90 in less tag ten minutes! We loved the oils and all the flavors of balsamic vinegars to choose from.

The Park House

888 Holland St
Saugatuck, 49453
Reviews:
Came here to celebrate a 6 month anniversary with my girl friend at the end of December for a special evening together. After departing we did not get to stay in the room we reserved and my girlfriend left with several bed bug bites. Overall, an extremely unenjoyable experience and will not be returning. After making reservations several weeks prior for the Susan B. Anthony room, we were informed on arrival that the room was not available due to the hot tub not working, so we were moved to the Maudie room. Luckily we were the only ones staying at the Parkhouse Inn that night...hmm. In the AM we were served a buffet style breakfast of apple pancakes, eggs, sausage, and yogurt...which was pretty tasty (3 stars). Upon checking out we didn't realize our stay would come to haunt us once we left. When my girlfriend woke up two days later she noticed multiple bed bug bites on her arms and hands. Neither of us had signs of bed bugs in our residence ever, so the evidence would indicate they came from our stay at the Parkhouse Inn. After throughly inspecting both our rooms, washing all our clothes/bags, and purchasing bed bug mattress covers and sprays ($150+)...we hopefully have negated any of these bugs from entering our residence. Overall a pricey joint for the dead of winter and the possibility of bed bugs being present would ensure I never stay or recommend this B&B to anyone I know.
I just had a great experience at the Park House Inn. The Bed part: My room was spotless and comfortable, and I loved the skylight over my bed in "The Loft". The bed was comfy, the room was quiet, and I slept better than in days. Good strong fast WiFi is make-or-break for me, and there was no problem! I travel with lots of electronics and I loved the fact that the innkeepers have put TWO power strips near the bed, one on each side. There was even a mattress warmer and a space heater for an extra kick of heat on a cold late-winter night. The Breakfast part: The food was yummy and I felt like I could go back for seconds or even thirds if I wanted to. Toni (a very friendly and helpful innkeeper) had gone out of her way to accommodate my request for low-carb food, and the coffee was good and strong and it kept on coming. There was also hot cocoa and a good selection of teas. The Location part: It's just a very short walk through a lovely village neighborhood to all the restaurants and shops that make Saugatuck so charming. You even pass a delightful old mill building right nearby. One real plus for the Park House in busy Saugatuck is the large parking lot for off-street parking. Toni told me that the town runs buses on demand to take you around town and to the beach which would be a real plus when it's high season and parking is hard to find.
We had a wonderful stay at the Park House Inn. The owner's Toni and Rick make you feel at home and add both very knowledgeable about the area. The inn is spotless and well kept. They recommended great restaurants in the area all within walking distance. They also prepared a wonderful breakfast in the morning and made sure they were always available for all your needs. I can't wait to go back soon!

Belvedere Inn & Restaurant

3656 63rd St
Saugatuck, 49453
Reviews:
Best bed and Breakfast I've ever been to. The hosts Shaun and Pete were terrific. The scenery and food were outstanding. If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet and luxurious B&B look no further than the Belvedere.
Coming from Chicago I wasnt expecting much from restaurants in Saugatuck. We came to the belvedere inn restaurant on a saturday night and were blown away by everything. Its located on a side road in the middle of the country in this great bed and breakfast type place. Service was great, drinks were spot on, and the food was absolutely incredible. Literally one of the top 5 restaurants me and my girlfriend have been to in the past year. Only draw back was the price, but highly highly recommend!
We've spent $125 (with tip) for far less quality, service, atmosphere and ambiance. From the hospitality when we stopped by in the afternoon to look to calling in to request a reservation for the 8:00 seating to taking our coats and welcoming us Shaun was warm, welcoming, friendly and professional. We were told we be taken care by Linda and we were seated in a beautiful dining room near the fireplace. Linda was wonderful...attentive without hovering My husband and I each ordered 2 courses but we shared his pate and my arugula salad and it was as if we had 3 courses, and more than enough food! The entrees were beautifully plated and delicious! I had pork tournedos with prunes and my husband had the filet. Both were perfectly prepared. I also liked to sautéed spinach with my dish and the brocolini with my husband's We are not wine experts but enjoyed the 2 glasses of house wines we ordered It's off season so it wasn't crowded. If we're ever back on this side of Michigan we'll make a reservation to return.

Boardwalk Deli & Icecream

311 Water St
Saugatuck, 49453
Reviews:
We ended up here on a Saturday night with our kids, hungry and unwilling to wait an hour plus for other and more expensive places in the vicinity. When we were done, we all agreed that it was definitely for the better that we happened in to the deli. My wife and I both had Baja burritos and our kids had a grilled cheese and a cheese pizza between them. The burrito was so good we almost considered getting them the following night in town as well (and after Scooter's, we wished we had). The grilled cheese and pizza were unexceptional but eaten. The owner was very nice to all of us, and the food was served in a timely manner. We'd definitely go back again.
I had the turkey reuben, my mom had one of their specialty sandwiches with hummus, veggies, feta & cucumber sauce. Delicious! Definitely will come back to try more. Don't expect to find a seat when it's busy - there are a few stools outside and a couple of brightly painted picnic-type benches in front. But you're a block and a half away from Cook Park and a view of the marina. Take your yummy food with you and enjoy Saugatuck.
Ordered a reuben panini, meatball sandwich & one can of soda for a total of $19.75. The bill was calculated on a post-it note & padded by $2.50. There were no side dishes included; just a mediocre sandwich wrapped in paper. I would not eat here again.

Wally’s

128 Hoffman St
Saugatuck, 49453
Reviews:
If you want a good bar to hang out... Wally is it. Food is wonderful, especially if you crave for some good old fish and chips. Burgers are also savory good. Top that with some cold beer. Relax and unwind. At night, the place becomes wild, as people flock to party. Not exactly what I wanted, but I can tell lots of people are having fun.
This was the second stop on the New Year's excursion and probably should have been the last. Their beer selection was outstanding. I enjoyed several Old Speckled Hen pints from the tap. The crowd was lively and made for a really festive atmosphere. The crowd was very diverse from the flannel-clad nascar dad locals to the well-dressed out-of-towners and many in between. Was here in the summer, too, after a golf outing and it's a nice place to grab a pint or two after the 18th hole. They have sidewalk seating along with an enclosed patio area that is more friendly on those really hot summer days. I remember the fish n chips being pretty good, too.
We were there on a Sat night (this past weekend) and the band Cheap Date was playing. They were incredible. I recently had foot surgery and can barely walk, but they had me up and dancing. Went from playing Lady Gaga to Bruno Mars to Neil Diamond and Poision! This place is the place to be for entertainment in Saugatuck!! Hubby and friends did have perch dinner and chicken strips and thought it was good.

Small store in a Shell gas station. Customer service is excellent though. It closes at 9. Its centered towards travelers, as there is no seating. Only carry out.

Old Crow Bar

220 Water
Saugatuck, 49453
Reviews:
Again, the map is all wrong. They're located right on the Kalamazoo lake with great outdoor seating (lots of seats - we had no problem) overlooking the boat docks. Although we went for a late lunch, it definitely has that party atmosphere and am sure it gets jumping at night. I had their coconut shrimp salad which was very good. Every time I bit into the shrimp, it tasted a bit like really coconutty suntan location (in a good way). It was also heaped with lots of pineapple and mandarin oranges (YUM). My husband had some chicken strips with fries which he said was ok - typical bar food.
