Sept Newsletter From Sherwood Forest

September 7th, 2010 by Mariah

News from The Forest


The summer is coming to an end, and although the autumnal equinox is still a few weeks away, things have quieted down here on the lakeshore. The squirrels have started gathering their food supply for the fall, the young turkeys are wandering through the woods, and soon the hummingbirds will start their long trek south. The nights are cool; the days are peaceful; the early apples and pears are ready for picking. It’s a great time of year to join us for some relaxation and beautiful fall colors.



Sherwood Forest Picnic Baskets



Venture forth from Sherwood Forest with your own basket of goodies. The picnic includes a fine selection of Italian meats, cheeses, and baguettes, along with fresh fruit and sweets to make your afternoon rendezvous complete. To wet your whistle, choose from spritzers or bottled water (vegetarian selection also available). Price: $55 for two.



Melt your Stress Away Package



Upon your arrival, you’ll find a beautiful wine and cheese basket with a bouquet of fresh flowers. During your visit you’ll each experience a soothing massage in a style suited just for you and a $30 voucher good toward a romantic dinner at a fine restaurant. Upon your departure (which we’re sure you’ll want to delay as long as possible before returning to the “real world”) a gift from us: a compact disc of relaxing music and an illustrated guide to massage. Price: $235 (does not include room rate). If you wish to have this awaiting your arrival, give us a call at 800-838-1246.



Sherwood Forest Gourmet Dinners



Now’s the time to gather up that group of friends or family and plan a visit to Sherwood Forest B&B for one of our awesome Gourmet Dinners. From November through April, let us wine and dine you. Book the entire B&B for 2 nights or more and we’ll have such a feast catered, your taste palates won’t allow any leftovers. We’ve cornered the market on the best chefs Saugatuck and Douglas have to offer. These epicurean wizards of gastronomic delights will amaze you in what will be your own private dining room, and you’ll have the time of your life. Here are the details: dinner is $50 per person, you provide your own alcohol, and a 2-night minimum stay is required. You pick the date November through April and we’ll pick the chef. Bring your appetite and whatever you need to wet your whistle, sit down, and dinner is served. Black out dates are New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day weekends. To book a gourmet dinner, call Keith or Sue at 800-838-1246. You can see some of our past dinner menus at



Bed, Breakfast, and Arnold Palmer Golf



Now that the golf courses are a wee bit less crowded, it’s a great time to enjoy some golf. We’ve come up with some incredible stay-and-play golf packages for you to choose from. Spend a night or two at Sherwood Forest B&B and we’ll arrange for you to play at The Ravines, an Arnold Palmer Signature Championship Golf Course, a sweeping, 18-stanza epic, where nature meets sport in ways you simply must witness to believe. Cost ranges from $251 to $625. For more info, visit





Bed, Breakfast, and Brewery



Looking for a weekend getaway involving brewing your own batch of beer? Sherwood Forest is offering a unique package that includes a 2-night stay plus access to Saugatuck Brewing Company’s brew-on-site facilities. SBC will provide the recipes, from light to dark; over 70 different recipes are available. They’ll also provide the ingredients and professional brewing equipment, as well as the expertise to take you through the brewing process. You’ll brew at least 11 gallons of beer (sixty 22oz. bottles). If 11 gallons of beer is more than you need, bring a friend or two and split the batch. It takes 3-4 hours to brew your batch and you return in 2 weeks to bottle and sample your beer, which takes about 2 hours, or you can have them bottle it and pick it up (an extra $20). Cost runs from $512 to $695. For more info, call Keith or Sue at 800-838-1246.
