Have stayed here many times and always enjoy our stays.. This time one bad apple left of us(wife and me) with a sour taste in our mouths! After a comfortable first night in the inn we left our room at around 10:30am for a walk and a visit to the outlet mall and Bubba's pizza. Got back to our room... More

The property is set on Lake James and is dated, but well-tended. The rooms showed some wear and tear, but were clean enough (I say "clean enough" because in our first room we had to pull the nightstand away from the wall to check out the outlet situation and found a few candy bar wrappers and other general yuckiness, but...

My wife and I stayed here for the first time. We love the other Indiana Inns and so thought we would give this one a try. We decided it is different from the other inns because this one is so much larger, with more of a resort feel. Not bad...just different. During winter, you can find a fireplace in the... More

It was great to hear about your stay with us, thank you for taking time out of your day to do so. The rooms in the historic section can be on the smaller side, they were originally built in 1927 and then made smaller at a later date when they added individual bathrooms to the rooms in the 1940's.

Made a two day stay in mid-winter at the inn. I can see how the site is probably geared to conferences and should work well for that. The restaurant was closed, but the snack area served the same food instead. The menu was a bit over-priced, but good. There was an ice storm at the time, so we only looked... More

I have stayed at the Inn every winter for the past five years, attending a annual conference. The rooms facing east and south provide wonderful views of the surrounding woods and of Lake James. It is not uncommon to see deer from your room in the evening hours. The rooms themselves need a little updating. In my experience, the rooms... More

For $85 per night, we rented a cabin at Pokagon. Situated nicely between Lake James and the bridge over the toboggan run, and with the various amenities at the inn also available to cabin renters, we thought it would be perfect. Our friends rented rooms in the Potawatomi Inn proper, as the cabins were all sold out when they called.... More

I have stayed at Potowatomi Inn for something like 15 years in a row as part of a large family reunion.
