We stopped here after dropping our son off in Ann Arbor, two and a half hours away. We didn't want to go directly home and were looking for an escape and a short break before returning east. Sherwood Forest was the perfect escape and B & B. Keith welcomed us and gave us a comprehensive tour of the area. He arranged dinner reservations in Douglas at a lovely restaurant. Stayed in the Rose Room, the smallest, but it was all we needed. Breakfast was lovely with fresh fruit and homemade granola we like. The entire area is interesting and filled with many things to do. We especially loved the dune rides just north of Saugatuk as a way to see the real ecological layout of the area. We had looked forward to lunch at the Red Dock nearby but were disappointed because the owner closed it while we sat there waiting. Saugatuk had many interesting galleries and shops. Douglas has some nice art galleries, but some of these attactions were closed during our stay. Overall, it was the escape we wanted. We recommend the inn and the area and look forward to our return another time.
