Saugatuck, Michigan



Boat on The Kalamazoo River, Silver Lake, Lake Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo River, The Cove, all leading to our Big Lake Michigan!

The waters surrounding Saugatuck have always made our village a magical place. It's why we live here!! They are a wonderful playground for sailing, kayaking, canoeing, power boating, and every kind of boat imaginable. There is nothing quite like meandering down the Kalamazoo River, stopping in the Cove for a swim, and then going down the channel until our Big Blue Lake Michigan opens wide in front of you with endless waves meeting the horizon. It just takes your breath away and stress just evaporates.

NOW, spending time on the waters of Saugatuck/Douglas has never been easier for our guests. There are suddenly numerous options for rentals and tours and they're very affordable. Everything from a Sunset Sail or a cruise in a Retro Boat to a pontoon, kayak, hydrobike or a ride on the Harbor Water Taxi. They all open up the experience of a Wickwood Inn/Saugatuck getaway.

"Believe me my young friend, there is nothing, absolutely nothing,
half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats."
                                                         --- Kenneth Grahame, Wind in the Willows

"I’ve always believed that a goal in life is not to own a boat
but have a friend with a boat." --- Christie Hefner
