Guest Room at The Saugatuck Retro Resort

In 2012, major room renovations began on the 20-room property. Unfortunately, time and neglect left the rooms in need of attention beyond a typical "fluff." It quickly became clear a transformation was in order.

GroundsFor starters, the original 280 foot concrete promenade in front of Rooms 1-16 while comfortably wide to enjoy the deep eaves indicative of the era, had buckled in numerous locations to the point it had to be removed. It was replaced with an arched patio area in front of each room large enough to act as a small porch complete with a pair of Adirondack armchairs and table. The original solid entry doors were replaced with full view garden doors with enclosed mini-blinds to allow for full light or total privacy.

RoomUpon entering the room, guests will immediately notice the addition of a tiled entryway in Italian woodgrain porcelain tile in a weathered wood coloration chosen to match the colors of the new furnishings which feature a queen sleigh bed, two nightstands and large dresser. With its whitewashed rustic tongue in groove pine walls, clear wide-plank pine ceilings Roomand new carpet, the room is warm and inviting.

Besides the furnishings, room amenities were added to include new thermostatically controlled HVAC units, a ceiling fan over the bed and 32" flat panel TV with Satellite. Completing the rooms are luxurious Queen pillow top mattress with down duvets and four bed pillows.

Bath Room at The Saugatuck

Flowing from the bedroom to the bath, the same Italian tile from the entry leads to an alcove to include a hanging closet niche next to a separate niche containing a stainless compact refrigerator and freezer with microwave perfect for preparing a poolside snack. Beverage glasses stand ready for an afternoon libation.

BathThe same Italian woodgrain tile was chosen for the floors and backsplashes. New American Standard plumbing fixtures from the Boulevard series were added with a nod to water conservation and the classic, clean styling reflective of the property's history and other architectural features. Finalizing the bath renovation was the addition of whitewashed rustic pine walls with bright, wider plank ceilings.
