The Resort is closed for the season starting Oct 26, reopening Summer 2021 (date TBD).
The newly christened Saugatuck Retro Resort Motel, aims to build on the property’s decades old reputation of locally-owned and operated quaintness and hospitality. Saugatuck Retro Resort Motel was just named by Reader's Digest as one of the 17 Most Retro Hotels in America--and the only property located in Midwest! The resort takes guests back to the days of small roadside motels where the owner checked you in complete with flashing neon signs, large grassy lawns with big shade trees and cozy rooms. While only 5 minutes from all the Saugatuck/Douglas renowned eateries, galleries and shopping districts, The Saugatuck Retro Resort's location still affords guests a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of these two thriving beach towns with its five acre park-like ambiance. The property provides a perfect opportunity to return home after a busy day of shopping or beaching to retreat poolside for a cocktail or afternoon dip. If the idea of a good book coupled a glass of local wine/beer or a catnap before the evening’s festivities is more appealing, take shelter in a hammock under any one of the plentiful shade trees throughout the grounds. If the day’s activities were too taxing, simply chill and grill listening to crickets and tree frogs while watching the stars. Not only does the resort enjoy close proximity to Saugatuck/Douglas and Lake Michigan, the property is conveniently located next to two championship quality golf courses, a conference center and driving range, charter fishing on Lake Michigan, scenic dinner cruises, paddle boating, winery and brewery tours, and ferrying down the Kalamazoo River. Miles of sand dunes and water also promise opportunities for swimming, sunbathing or dune-schooner rides. The Saugatuck Retro Resort welcomes you to “Come for the Night, Stay for the Decade!” What are you waiting for, grab the Way-Farers and motor on in and enjoy a timeless Lake Michigan tradition.
