It's a Winter Wonderland


Staying Fit in Saugatuck

It’s easy here. We have miles of beaches to walk, trails to cycle, streams and rivers, and one Big Lake, to canoe, kayak, and surf, and paths and woods to walk. We also are lucky to have the Satya Yoga Center which is dedicated to our best selves with yoga, Pilates, meditation, martial arts, dance and even Boot Camp. There are classes, personal training, and workshops for all.


Lakeshore Pilates is committed to upholding the highest standards of Joseph Pilates with Group Reformer & Mat classes and personal training. Lakeshore Pilates takes Pilates seriously training men and women of all ages. Visitors welcome.

Pumphouse Gym

The Pump House Gym is everyone’s favorite for hitting the Cardio Mezzanine with Elliptical Bikes and Treadmills, free weights and Magnum weight and strength training equipment. Classes, day rates, personal training, it’s all here seven days a week. Walk-ins welcome.

While you’re making your list (and checking it twice) this holiday season, keep The Wickwood Inn in mind for friends and family and all the characters in your life. The perfect gift for the loved one who has everything and wants more memories or the colleague in desperate need of a little getaway, a gift certificate to Wickwood Inn is as easy as calling us at 800.385.1174.

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening. In the lane, snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight. Walking in a Winter Wonderland."
