Romantic Interest

The BeachWay is situated between downtown Saugatuck and Lake Michigan overlooking the Saugatuck Harbor. Mere footsteps away is the only hand-cranked chain ferry in the U.S. Take a ride across the Saugatuck Harbor and spend a day shopping in Saugatuck's charming downtown shops and unique art galleries. Or if you desire some downtime relax on our hotel's expansive tiered sundecks that surround the resort's pool!

Describe Garden and Grounds

Our expansive property extends from the Kalamzoo River to the wooded dune areas that lead to the lake. We have expansive sun decks to enjoy the view, watch the boats and listen to the sounds of Saugatuck.

Historic Interest

Over 100 years old, the Beachway Resort in Saugatuck, Michigan first opened its doors in 1900 as "Pokagon Inn", the first hotel on the west river bank. The hotel accommodated 100 visitors and included a 200 ft. dock on the river. The first year must have been very successful because in 1901 it was announced that 50 more rooms would be added. However, in the fall of 1901, the hotel burned and was closed. In 1906 a new owner rebuilt the Pokagon Inn in the Beachway's current location. Until the 1930's the only access to Lake Michigan from downtown Saugatuck was by boat up the river. It was during the 30's that Oval Beach Road was constructed to connect the west river bank to the lake. Since this left the hotel "the nearest resort to the beach" as the ads said, the name "Pokagon Inn" was dropped and changed to "Beachway Resort". After several changes of ownership, the current owners, Kathy and Frank Wilson, longtime residents of the area, gained possession of the crumbling building on April Fools Day, 1984. Renovations included a new foundation, new roof, and floor to ceiling makeovers for all rooms. The Beachway was remodeled a second time in 1994 to expand the front of the building, adding about six feet to all view rooms.

Incredible little B&B-style resort

I don't have enough great things to say about the BeachWay. The innkeepers thought of everything. From the ten-day weather report printed out in the dining room, to the coupons they give you for local shops and eateries, to the proximity to the beach and town, to the great variety of snacks and DVDs ($1 each on the honor system) for a rainy day, to the heated pool and breakfast of coffee and fruit, to the overall cleanliness and friendliness of the inn, you can't go wrong. We got the 'very small interior room' due to last-minute booking, but it was quite spacious, tasteful and pristine. This was a great intro to Michigan for my NYC boyfriend, and I will certainly stay here every time I come home!
