Sherwood Forest Bed & Breakfast
Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast is located on a tree-lined street just half a block from the Lake Michigan shoreline and the Douglas public beach. This unique Inn offers inviting elegance in a wooded setting with hardwood floors, leaded-glass windows. A relaxing wrap-around porch adds to the ideal surroundings. Perfect for romance or a much-needed getaway, six individualized guest rooms are complete with antiques, cozy wing chairs, Jacuzzis, and fireplaces. A separate 1400 sq. foot two bedroom cottage is located right next to the Inn.
Three suites are available. The signature "Safari Suite" takes you on a journey into Africa, beautifully decorated with authentic South African artwork. It includes a large sitting area, glass tiled shower and claw foot tub, complimented by a private deck set in the woods. The second suite replicates a log cabin, reproducing the serenity of the north woods. It includes a stone-mantle gas fireplace, viewed from either the two-person Jacuzzi or the comfort of the bedroom. The third suite features the same amenities but is decorated in the flair of the late 19th century.
The remaining rooms each have their own character. Spend the night in our "Tree Tops Room" surrounded by a hand-painted mural that transforms the room into a canopied tree loft, complemented by a gas fireplace, or travel to Paris in our "Black and White Room," complete with a two-person Jacuzzi!
During the summer, guests can lounge and swim in a private heated pool tucked in the forest, or walk 1/2 block to a Lake Michigan public beach to enjoy spectacular sunsets. Bicycles are available for exploring the scenic lake shore.
