Surrounded by woods, this lovely Victorian-style home with its wrap-around porch offers serene relaxation in an ideal setting.
Its hardwood floors, leaded-glass windows, and an oak-paneled staircase all add to the sophisticated charm of Sherwood Forest.
Not surprisingly, Sherwood Forest is AAA, Mobil, and Lake to Lake Bed and Breakfast Association inspected and approved.
On the premises you can luxuriate in the heated swimming pool beautified with a mural of a sunken Greek ship. The secluded feel of the surrounding woods provides a tranquil spot for taking a dip or lounging on the patio. The eastern shore of Lake Michigan and the Douglas Public Beach are one-half block away, while Saugatuck's Oval Beach and marinas are just minutes away. The area's wide, white sandy beaches are the perfect place for strolling, swimming, or watching spectacular sunsets.
Each spacious guest room is complete with antiques and traditional furniture, cozy wing chairs, and Oriental rugs.
Queen-size beds, private baths, and air conditioning add twentieth-century enhancements.
There are two suites and three guest rooms available.
The first reproduces the serenity of the north woods as a replica of the inside of a log cabin. It includes a stone-mantle gas fireplace which can be viewed from either the two-person Jacuzzi tub or the comfort of the bedroom.
The second suite features the same amenities but is decorated in the flair of the late nineteenth century.
Another room boasts a hand-painted mural that transforms it into a canopied loft high in the tree tops. This room is complemented by an oak-mantle fireplace. In every detail it is clear that care has been taken to provide an environment ideal for unwinding and relaxing.
A separate cottage with fireplace is also available for intimate, group, or family getaways. It has two bedrooms, one-and-a-half baths, living room, air conditioning, full kitchen, and a deck.
Wake up each morning to a delectable breakfast served in the lace-curtained dining room or on the impressive wrap-around porch.
Breakfast favorites include lemon yogurt bread, blueberry muffins, sour cream coffee
cake, or potato quiche accompanied by fresh fruit, juice, and gourmet coffee or tea. Or

Saugatuck" dinner packages, available at Sherwood Forest November through April.
