The Maplewood Hotel in Saugatuck, Michigan, with its log fires, relaxed atmosphere and well-appointed stylish furnishings is a welcome alternative to the anonymous urban hotel. It is a civilized retreat for those looking for a restful break. This three-story Greek Revival Michigan bed and breakfast is peacefully located in downtown Saugatuck adjacent to the town common. Built in the 1860’s during the lumber era, the building was transformed into a “grand hotel” in 1923 and has served as a luxury European-style boutique hotel most of its 135-year history. A thoughtful mix of old and new is the distinguishing feature of this very popular Saugatuck Bed and Breakfast. The hotel has been furnished to reflect its era with well-polished antiques, fresh flowers, pretty chintzes and crisp table linens. The sense of old world charm has been well preserved throughout by the careful choice of vintage wallpapers, textured fabrics and art pieces. Log fires and comfortable sofas create a cozy atmosphere in the public rooms where guests gather to socialize. The pleasantly appointed guest rooms vary in size while blending the charm of the past with some modern décor. The individually designed rooms combine style with comfort and benefit from private baths, crisp bed linens, fluffy towels, hair dryers, televisions, a DVD library and luxury soaps. Many have fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs. Life at the Maplewood Hotel begins at breakfast. Delicious freshly cooked breakfasts are served daily at 9:00 a.m. in the inn’s dining room. Guests may also enjoy breakfast on the hotel’s expansive sun porch overlooking the village green framed by mature pine trees and colorful flower beds. The atmosphere at The Maplewood Hotel is sunny with flowers in the spring and summer and cozy with fires in the fall and winter. The Inn’s lap pool is available during the warm weather. It offers a professional yet relaxed environment for both business and social travelers and provides business organizations with ideal surroundings in which to hold private meetings. Well-behaved children are welcome!
