Cozy up with a good book this winter!
Garden Grove Inn is hosting several destination book clubs this winter. Come to Union Pier for a quiet and cozy spot to read and relax! Enjoy a good book by the fireplace, under the covers or in a warming jacuzzi tub. Then, join your fellow travelers and the book’s author on Saturday afternoon for good conversation and delicious snacks.
Your 2-night stay includes the book, a Saturday afternoon conversation with the author complete with wine & snacks, and a bag of relaxing goodies for your room. Plus, a delicious homemade breakfast is included both days!
Each weekend is limited to 7 rooms (each room can be single or double occupancy), so book your room now before they sell out! Make your reservation at least two weeks before the Destination Book Club Weekend and you’ll receive your book in the mail before you travel so that you can get a head start on the book.
Call us directly (269.469.6346) to book, or visit our online booking site and put in the dates of the weekend you’re interested in.

What the Lady Wants by Renée Rosen
Chicago Author Renée Rosen transports us into the world of Chicago in the late 1800s amongst the most elite of its residents. We get to experience this post-Chicago Fire era through socialite Delia Spencer and her relationship with retail tycoon Marshall Field whose famous motto is “Give the lady what she wants.”
Ms. Rosen is a Chicagoan who has written a number of wonderful historical fiction novels. We’re excited to host her and chat about Chicago’s history, the gilded age and so much more! Your weekend reservation gets you a room (for one or two), a copy of the book for each guest, a goodie bag full of local delights to make your weekend of relaxation complete, breakfast both mornings and a fun discussion with Ms. Rosen on Saturday afternoon complete with snacks & wine.
Stay tuned (to our webpage, social media and newsletter) for one more book club in April that will be announced early next year. And, check out our Destination Book Club for Kids featuring the book & play, Eleanor’s Very Merry Christmas Wish, that we’re hosting December 2-4. More details can be found here.
