Good for Business
Improve productivity and morale by inviting your team to Saugatuck/Douglas to get away from it all. More than just an opportunity for celebration and fun, company retreats are a worthy investment in your people.
Getting your team all together for a corporate retreat shouldn’t be considered an unnecessary luxury. A change of scenery can do wonders to help employees refocus and think big picture. Exploring new places and learning about each other can help team members understand how to work together better. And live, in-person gatherings away from the corporate headquarters can help to unite a predominantly remote team.
Here are a few places we’d recommend for hosting your next off-site meeting and retreat:
Laketown Golf & Conference Center offers a banquet center and meeting facilities that are ideal for corporate business meetings, seminars, or conferences. High-speed wireless internet and public phones are available along with complete audio/visual and additional technical equipment that can be rented.
With an emphasis on guest service and expert planning and coordination, their seasoned professionals can help with special arrangements for your meeting or conference, including assistance with lodging needs.
The Saugatuck Center for the Arts makes a one-of-a-kind venue for corporate meetings and events. A striking outdoor pavilion and rain garden is perfect for larger celebratory gatherings, while the Theatre can host seminars, lectures, or inspirational programs. They also offer a highly flexible Conference Room space that can hold up to 70 seated guests for meetings and workshops.
Perfect for small meetings and team-building retreats, the Rosemont Inn offers packages aimed at helping corporate groups become inspired and recharged. Its Lakefront Meeting Room, with its scenic view of Lake Michigan and warm, inviting fireplace, can accommodate a variety of set-ups for conducting meetings. Their Morning Room also can serve as a second meeting room if needed. Meeting attendees will appreciate the elegant Victorian-style guest rooms for their overnight stay.
The Maplewood Hotel is another unique alternative for small group gatherings. Plan a team-building experience combined with good food and fun-filled activities around this boutique venue, which is within walking distance to all of Saugatuck’s downtown attractions. The hotel’s relaxed environment offers a lovely atmosphere for team members to bond and rejuvenate. The staff works with neighboring inns to house any guests that exceed their ability to accommodate.
The Wickwood Inn, renowned for its sumptuous food and luxurious accommodations, strives to put the “treat” into a corporate retreat. The Inn houses 11 guest rooms and an event space large enough for 22 business associates. Every overnight stay includes a Farm to Table Breakfast, Evening Sips & Small Plates, and decadent sweets throughout the day. Gather your team together for a getaway at the Wickwood Inn and prepare to leave inspired with fresh ideas.
