Surrounded by woods, this beautiful Victorian-style home offers Lake Michigan lodging accommodations in an ideal setting. The hardwood floors, leaded-glass windows, oak-paneled staircase, and wraparound porch all add to the inviting elegance of Sherwood Forest. Queen-size beds, private bathrooms, and air conditioning add 20th century comforts.
Each morning at our Lake Michigan resort, breakfast is served in the elegant dining room or on the gracious porch. Breakfast favorites include prosciutto ricotta omelets, blueberry buttermilk pancakes, croque madame, eggs in a basket, French toast with marscapone creme fraiche and fresh berries, raspberry streusel, lemon blueberry loaf or orange cranberry delight, accompanied by home made tropical granola with greek yogurt and honey, fresh fruit, home-baked delights, and gourmet coffee and teas. We can and do accommodate those who require gluten-free meals, or any dietary concerns or allergies.
During the summer, swim or lounge in our heated pool tucked into the woods, adorned with a spectacular, hand-painted mural, or walk just 1/2 block to a Lake Michigan public beach. The area's wide, white sandy beaches are the perfect place for strolling, swimming, or watching beautiful sunsets.
In the springtime, use Sherwood Forest's bicycles to explore the scenic lakeshore or for a short ride into charming Saugatuck/Douglas. Nearby wooded dunes also offer great hiking paths to enjoy Mother Nature as she awakens and sends out her welcoming chorus of flowers and scents.
In the fall, just outside your window, watch the beech, sugar maple, and sassafras trees paint a colorful picture for your viewing pleasure. In the winter, cross-country ski through the dunes overlooking Lake Michigan, sled the golf course hills, or perhaps just enjoy some much-needed down time with a good book, a warm Jacuzzi, and a cozy fireplace.
All year-round, enjoy the many shopping and fine dining experiences in Saugatuck and Douglas.
