Cooking Getaway at Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast

If your idea of fun reality TV includes Kitchen Nightmares and Master Chef, or you collect cooking magazines and enjoy trying new recipes with your friends, you’ll love taking a cooking class with Chef LaPerriere at the Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast in Saugatuck. It makes a fun girls’ weekend.

Your stay starts with martinis and risotto at a nearby café. In the morning, guests enjoy a gourmet breakfast before heading off to interactive cooking classes. These classes are available for groups from 2 to 10 people and include an evening of professional instructions designed around your group’s culinary interests.

The price includes ingredients, recipes, beverages and more. For more information on specifics, call 800-838-1246.

Brew your own beer.

Brew Your Own Beer

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at brewing your own beer, Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast also offers a unique weekend package that includes a 2 night stay and access to Saugatuck Brewing Company’s brew-on-site facilities.

Recipes and ingredients are provided with 70 different recipes to choose from. You’ll brew at least 11 gallons of beer. You can return two weeks later to sample the beer or have them bottle it for you. If you want, you can even design your own label for an extra fee.

If you’d like to get away to Saugatuck but would rather eat than cook or brew, you can also find a 3-hour walking tour that offers a culinary glimpse at Saugatuck’s food and life. It provides a great getaway with a nice blend of small town charm and plenty to do.
