PROS: There are SO many things for every family member! The lodge is lovely, and the grounds are immaculate. We had a family reunion for over 40 people, who dined all together at the restaurant a couple of times. We complicated things by not sitting together, but the wait staff handled the situation beautifully with smiles, patience, and speed. They... More

A peaceful and solitude resort in Northeastern Indiana. This isn't a 5 star resort you normally see. This was built by the CCC in 1930's and the state has made a resort out of it. Wife and I are very impressed with all that it has to offer. A fantastic place for families and couples. There are no college kids... More

Stayed here in the year 2012 and my boys loved it so much that they insisted on coming back this year on the way back from Milwaukee. We stayed in a roomy room big enough for 6 people. The rooms are clean but could use some updating. The reason we come here is for the hike trails and beach and... More

Since this is a resort review I will add the food experience as well. We had visited Pokagon State Park a few times and always wanted to stay at the Inn. We stayed in the Inn on the last trip to the park. The room was large and clean. It overlooked the State Park grounds and was very peaceful and... More

This is our best kept secret in NEI!! If I were not worried that the Potawatomi Inn MIGHT NOT be here forever, I'd keep it to myself!! This is close to Indiana, Ohio & Michigan; accommodates ALL AGES. I especially appreciate that the alcohol is restricted to personal/private areas. ♥ Family friendly

We've come to this resort every other year for family reunions since 2000, and love the grounds, facilities and public areas. We've also generally found the staff friendly and helpful. However, when my daughter checked in this past Thurs., she found her room foul smelling-the front desk said they were fully booked and they could not change her room. They... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Potawatomi Inn Resort and Conference Center is located in beautiful Pokagon State Park, and on the shores of pristine Lake James, one of Indiana's largest lakes. Visitors will enjoy acres of outdoor recreational opportunities and all modern amenities. A historic structure, the Inn opened to the public in 1927. Many renovations and additions have added the modern conveniences that today's guests expect while preserving the historic importance of the Inn. The Inn features two restaurants. The Lakeview Grille is housed in the original dining room of the Inn and features a full menu and buffet service certain nights along with a bountiful Sunday Brunch. The Courtyard Cafe is a seasonal outlet that features quick service foods, our fresh baked pizza and ice cream. Guests can enjoy any one of the Inns many amenities including our craft room, where kids of all ages can create souvenirs to take home with them. Or if you are looking for a quiet place to read or do a puzzle in front of the fireplace, you can try the library or the Lonidow Lounge. Of course, the most popular amenity is the 1,600 acre Pokagon State Park with its miles of hiking and biking trails and not one, but two beaches. And don't think that we go dormant in the winter, from Thanksgiving weekend through the end of February the weekends come alive with the opening of the Toboggan Run which features two quarter mile refrigerated toboggan tracks that can reach speeds of 35 to 40 miles per hour! Come enjoy the Potawatomi Inn Resort and Conference Center, Indiana's year round playground! ... more   less
