Hotel Saugatuck is a Hidden Gem


Lynn and I enjoyed our fresh breakfast of omelets and muffins. It was delivered right to our room at Hotel Saugatuck in Michigan so we got to stay in the comfortable bathrobes a bit longer.

We wished we could stay longer, but we did decide to explore before leaving. The suites are quite big and it had a Jacuzzi tub, microwave, and small refrigerator.

We brought our luggage down to the lobby. The Inn was inviting with a fireplace and piano and the staff was friendly and helpful.

The cottages across the driveway were occupied so I didn’t get to see them, but they looked adorable from the outside.

The Michigan town of Saugatuck includes a quaint town and quiet beaches. We decided to take a drive to Oval Beach.

Lynn and I spent most of our lives on Long Island in New York so we weren’t quite sure what to expect from a Michigan beach. 

Honestly, the water was more inviting than the Atlantic Ocean, without the seaweed and waves, and with the beautiful blue color.

The other thing that you don’t usually see on Long Island is a snack bar and shop in the middle of the beach. What was the same were the people lounging and swimming, and sailboats in the background.

I sat down to rest a while Lynn walked along the beach. We had a long drive home, though, so we didn’t stay too long.

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Michigan, especially along the Great Lakes. I wish I had more time to explore more of the towns there. There are so many great towns and beautiful beaches.

I will be back.
