Winter Vacation in Michigan

Here are just a few of our favorite fall and wintry pastimes to enjoy when you come visit us in October, November and December.

Offsite Adventures

The wonderful wineries and breweries surrounding our inn are a favorite of our guests. Come enjoy incredible wine, hard cider and craft beer tasting in a fun and vibrant environment.

Get yourself on an ATV and ride the trails before the season ends! KJC ATV Rentals & Trails is our pick for four-wheeled adventures and they’re taking reservations through the end of October. Breathe in the crisp clean air and feel all stress melt away.

When the snow flies ask us about the different options for cross-country and downhill skiing. One of our favorite spots for downhill skiing is Bittersweet Ski Area which will be hopping come December.


Onsite Excursions

You don’t have to leave the premises to have an adventure! We offer fat tire bikes on site and snowshoeing around our property is an exceptional way to spend the day. Seasoned fishermen are encouraged to bring their own equipment to ice fish on Emerson lake.


Get Into the Holiday Spirit

Starting in December, be dazzled by all the Christmas decorations in surrounding town and villages of Douglas, Holland, Saugatuck and Kalamazoo. Layer up and get outside to make your snowmen and snow angels. Pack up your best ugly sweater and ask your innkeeper about the local restaurants and breweries that are getting into the spirit! You too can spread the Christmas cheer with a gift certificate for a loved one to our


Cozy Up at Castle in the Country

Sometimes the best activities are just relaxing and enjoying the company and the atmosphere. A guest favorite is napping in the screened porch. At the Castle, there are many ways to warm up including by your own fireplace in your room, a perfect way to unwind after a day of adventuring.

We also highly recommend bundling up with a blanket and some hot cocoa and heading outside to the gazebo with the beautiful twinkle lights. Watching the wildlife with your loved one is something that shouldn’t be missed. November is also the best month for stargazing on the Castle keep decks.
