Built in 1865, Twin Gables Inn has a rich history, having undergone numerous changes, but always being a part of the progression of the Saugatuck community. It started as a brewery icehouse, became a tannery, a barrelstave mill, a boat building yard, a planning mill, and since the turn-of-the-century, a hotel and restaurant. It is the only building which was once a mill, still left standing from the busy lumbering era in the Saugatuck area.
We are inspected and approved by the Lake-To-Lake B&B Association and the MOBIL Travel Guide. We are written up in Romantic Michigan, Annual Directory of Midwest B&B's, Recommended Inns of the Midwest, and Frommer's Great Lakes & Midwest.
We are a nationally recognized award-winning circa 1856 Michigan historic Bed & Breakfast with all the amenities of the 21st century. This Michigan bed and breakfast Inn is registered as a historical site with the state Michigan. Twin Gables Inn started life as a lumber mill and had many commercial uses before it became the Saugatuck Hotel (which hosted members of Al Capone's gang) and finally in the mid-80's after being dormant for many years, this building was purchased and lovingly transformed into a bed and breakfast
