With the perfect location in downtown Saugatuck, Twin Oaks Inn is the perfect place to stay. Innkeepers Sherry and Lisa recently remodeled Twin Oaks to add modern furnishings and conveniences while keeping the charm of this 1860 historical home intact.
Park your car in our private parking lot; Twin Oaks is just steps from all of the shops, art galleries, and restaurants Saugatuck has to offer. Twin Oaks Inn is less than two miles from downtown Douglas and Saugatuck’s Oval Beach.
The bed and breakfast offers six spacious guest rooms, each featuring a king or queen bed, private bath, and many modern amenities you would expect in an upscale hotel. A full breakfast is served daily in our beautiful dining room and during the warmer months on the cozy screened-in porch and private outdoor patio. Guests will enjoy our wet bar area which offers a selection of coffees and gourmet teas as well as a microwave, ice machine, and refrigerator.
Twin Oaks Inn is a member of the Professional Association of Innkeepers (PAII) and Saugatuck-Douglas Area Business Association. Having operated as a bed and breakfast for over 25 years, Twin Oaks Inn was acquired by Sherry Forbes and Lisa Stafford in October 2013.
Built in 1860 as a private residence, Twin Oaks was once the home of John Henry, owner of a local lumber mill, and his wife Isabel. Not much is known about the complete history of Twin Oaks, but we found a map from 1912 that showed the home was used for “summer boarding”.
It’s our understanding that the home was used as a boarding house for lumbermen, and we had a few visitors to the area stop by who told us they lived here as children when it was an apartment building.
Twin Oaks Inn was established as a bed and breakfast in 1989. Innkeepers Lisa and Sherry are the third owners of Twin Oaks.
