Egbert H. Gold, tycoon of the Vapor Car Heating Company, of Chicago and New York, established Marigold Lodge in 1913. Mr. Gold searched the Lake Michigan coast to find a serene place where he could build a summer vacation home to escape busy Chicago, and decided to settle at Point Superior on adjacent Black Lake (Lake Macatawa). The architect hired to design the home was Mr. Tallmadge of Tallmadge & Watson, Chicago. The family hired H. M. Deam as the general contractor. The first building, the icehouse, was completed in January 1913. The construction of the house was begun in that spring and completed in November 1913. It featured a boathouse, barns, special walkways, and an extensive garden. Marigold Lodge became the summer home of Egbert, wife Margaret Jayne (Dickey), and their three children, Samuel Dickey, Mary Jayne, and Egbert, Jr. The lodge was named for both mother and daughter.

The Gold family enjoyed the lodge until 1969. After the death of her mother, Mary Jayne Gold gave the home and land to Hope College. Nine years later, in 1978, Hope College sold the lodge to Herman Miller, Inc. as a corporate events center. Herman Miller still owns the lodge today and has restored the home to greatness.
