We were headed West on the Indiana Toll Road when overcome by thunderstorms. On check-in, the desk was unattended because the clerk was in our room starting the fireplace in order that it would be toasty warm. Dinner at their restaurant surpassed all expectations. A lakeside glass of wine watching a beautiful sunset capped the evening.

I had not been to LaPorte until I went there on business in September. I was staying in a hotel by the tollway and happened to have dinner at TBones Pier 11, right next to the Inn. I was fascinated by the little houseboat rooms that float on the lake and my server said, "stop in the Inn and Brigette... More

Let me start by saying that my girlfriend and I have stayed here many times. We have never had a bad experience. It does have it's ups and downs. Let's start with the ups.

We loved the location. The staff were all friendly. We arrived and the lady at the desk, took us on the tour of the hotel. She explained everything there was from the uses of the keys, to the breakfast area, to the restaurant next door. Our room was wonderful. the place was very clean! Love that the view faced the...

I just wanted to thank the great staff at the blue heron inn. We just got back from staying there this weekend during the gathering of the orange. We have 4 kids and all of the hotels there could not accommodate us to stay any where it was 2 rooms we would have to rent way to much for us.... More

I read all the bad reviews on this place but today we visited and rented a pontoon boat from them for fishing on Pine Lake. They charge $175 per day, about a hundred dollars cheaper than anyone else. While it is true their boats are old, they run fine, and we had a ball fishing and boating around. The boat... More

This was a gem to find. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a ground floor room with a lake view. The room was very large, and very clean, with a comfortable bed. Great water pressure in the shower, and a nice jacuzzi tub. A hot breakfast was included, and was probable the best breakfast I experienced... More

I spent two nights here with my husband the last weekend of June. I really enjoyed our stay, overall. Staff were great, restaurant/bar was good, breakfast was ok. I'd live to come back again! Oy complainants: pool area could use a cleaning, absolutely no water pressure (toilet wouldn't even hardly flush), and I wish the bar would be open later.... More

My husband and I chose this place because we wanted to visit the antique shops in LaPorte and surrounding towns. We chose one of the lakeside rooms with both a fireplace and a spa in the room. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the bathroom, and the nice furnishings. We were on the third floor and... More
