Hello! My name is Gloria Maley. My daughter, Sherry Forbes, and her partner, Lisa Stafford, own and operate Twin Oaks Inn bed and breakfast in Saugatuck, Michigan. I will be writing a blog on their B&B to let you know what is going on in Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan. The area is one of my favorite places to visit, not just because of my girls, but because the scenery is beautiful every season. Saugatuck and Douglas are wonderful places to visit, to wander the waterfront, explore the art galleries and shops, taste the wine and beer, and enjoy the casual and upscale dining in restaurants that are locally run.
I’m a Southern girl, born and bred. When I think of beaches, I think of Virginia Beach (where I live) and beaches in the Carolinas and Florida where I’ve basked in the sun. But, if you’ve never seen Saugatuck’s Oval Beach, you are in for a huge surprise. The sandy beach is white and wide; Lake Michigan is beautiful.
When you stay at Twin Oaks Inn, a quick block and a half walk out of the front door puts you on the main street where there are beautiful gift shops, local art and craft galleries, restaurants, wine shops, restaurants, and theater. In future blogs, I will be describing the local shops and businesses and keeping you up to date on planned activities in the area. I’ll write about the restaurants, fun things to do and shows to see. You can plan your trip to take advantage of the ongoing activities or just to take in the local scenery. More to come soon!
