The Dunes is one of the largest LGBTQIA+ resorts in the country, located right between beautiful Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan. No matter who you are or who you love, we’re the place where you can truly be yourself. We are 21 and older.  Swim in our pool, make friends at our bar, celebrate at our world-class events, visit the iconic Oval Beach, or check out all the amazing shops and local restaurants downtown. Whatever you do, just be you!

Paint the Town Rainbow

Our resort is positioned in the middle of Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan, both of which are well known across the country as one of the most gay-friendly small towns that have been accepting the LGBTQIA+ community for decades. They boast extensive shopping and boutiques, nature trails, restaurants, and beaches.

Spend your days in town and then head back here for a night to remember. It’s the perfect combo.

Winter Statement

We want to thank everyone that visited us this year and helped keep The Dunes safe this summer. Our guests' and patrons' safety and health are our main priorities. As the cooler temps are forcing us to move indoors, we have made the decision to close for the winter season, beginning November 2. We know indoor events are major spreaders of COVID-19. For this reason, we do not feel comfortable keeping our bar and resort open. This is not goodbye, simply a "see ya later." We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Make sure to go online and get your room booked for 2021!
