Lemon Ricotta Waffle with Mascarpone and Blueberries from The Hotel Saugatuck

Have you ever taken a look at a hotel or a bed & breakfast and just absolutely fallen in love with it, and just had that gut instinct that seeing it in person would just completely exceed your expectations? That’s how I feel about The Hotel Saugatuck in Saugatuck, Michigan. 

I was researching this 18-room luxury bed & breakfast for National Waffle Day (August 24) and fell in love. Take a moment and pop over and check out the beautiful historic hotel rooms or the beautiful cottage duplexes at this amazing place. My favorite cottage room is Fenn Valley and my favorite hotel rooms are Sandpiper, Twin Gables and Coastal Dunes.
