Maplewood Hotel Review

Chicago area native Catherine L. Simon runs her stately, historic bed and breakfast near downtown Saugatuck with the greatest of care. Expect prompt and doting service and little extras like fresh-baked goodies available in the evening, local jams for muffins, or wine glasses and an opener for that bottle of wine you purchased at Fenn Valley Vineyards. Furnished with carefully chosen period pieces—like four-poster wood beds—the Greek-Revival style building, built in the 1860s, features a sunny glass-enclosed porch for breakfast. Sit by the wood-burning fireplace in the main lounge or cozy up to your own in one of the larger rooms. In the summer, a small pool is open on the deck.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
