BE YOU AT THE DUNES
The Dunes is one of the largest LGBTQ+ 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. 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!
We want to thank everyone that visited us in 2020 and helped keep The Dunes safe. 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. 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 the first weekend in April 2021 (with the office opening 3/15)!
Are you looking for a romantic weekend getaway with your partner or a place to party with your friends (or make new ones) all week long? No matter what you’re searching for, we have the accommodations suited for you and any guests you might invite back with you.
From our Tea deck to our cabaret, there’s a venue to suit any occasion. Cool off in our pool or heat things up in our club. Whether you’re a wallflower or the life of the party, you’ll find the perfect place to spend your days…and nights.
There’s always something going on at the Dunes! Join us for a themed weekend, world-renowned DJs, drag shows, and more. Check out what’s up and coming on our events calendar. We can’t wait to party with you.
A place for everyone
What do you get when you mix three gay men, a few pitchers of margaritas, and a crazy idea? That’s right, The Dunes. We’ve always been dedicated to making a place where everyone can feel comfortable, confident and be themself.
What we mean to say is, you’re welcome here. Whether you’re a familiar face or a new guest, you’re sure to feel at home.
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 LGBTQ+ 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.
