Warm Weather Lingers in Saugatuck Long After Labor Day



"It's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary!" --- Pablo Picasso

"Wickwood Inn has amazing food." --- Chicago Magazine, June 2013

Our Indian Summer Specials Highlight A New Season

Just when you think Summer is over it’s not! We're lucky that we live where the breezes created over the warm waters of Lake Michigan engulf our shoreline villages and bring with them an extraordinarily long mild Indian Summer that lingers throughout September and October.

They also allow our Farm Stands, orchards and Markets to dazzle us as they overflow with fruits and vegetables from our local Farmers, who in our eyes qualify as true Rock Stars. They make our cooking at Wickwood absolutely burst with flavor!

All around town, the good times keep rolling at the beaches, in our shops and galleries, our brewery, cider houses, antique shops, restaurants and wineries all have exciting event calendars . Wickwood makes your joining the celebration easy with our Indian Summer Specials.
