Large, clean accommodations that are centrally located in Shipshewana. Adequate breakfast (but I hate those styrofoam plates and plastic utensils!). Nice pool area with hot tub. you can hear the clip clop of the horse buggies going by.

Just spent one night with friends. Very friendly hotel with larger than normal rooms. Very clean and well kept. Comfortable beds. Never been disappointed with our stay here. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip. Nice pool, and a pretty good breakfast

This was our second stay at the Farmstead Inn. The location is perfect. You can walk across the street to shopping, the flea market and the auction buildings. It is next to a very nice and clean antique barn and more shopping. The grounds are lovely. We stayed in a room with two queen beds. Good mattresses but bring your... More

Attended Shipshewanna flea market and surrounding stores. Hotel was located across the street. We had a king corner room so it was large and located in the quiet area of the hotel. They need to update their mattresses to new ones. The mattress brand was an off brand. On our box spring it had a major large and visible stains... More

Had a wonderful free night from the Inn due to a very kind manager taking over after a not-so-kind manager. Had a wonderful free night's stay. Asked to stay another night, and was moved into a room without a coffee pot, microwave, and only a queen bed. Thought we would have the amenities afforded in the former room, to discover... More 

Mark E, General Manager at Farmstead Inn, responded to this review

Like I mention in our emails we are working hard. If you stay with us tonight, all rooms have refrigerators. Our shipment of the rest of the microwaves and coffee pots will be this week and hopefully in all rooms by the weekend. 90% of our rooms have the new TVs. We are doing our best to meet the demands...

This is a nice hotel for the most part. I'm not sure if it was worth $120.00 a night. The good stuff is the rooms are big and very clean. The grounds are very nice and the pool is nice. The breakfast area is huge. The stuff that wasn't so great was the front desk staff. They were nice in... More

The Farmstead Inn is a nice clean hotel. The rooms are a nice size but the showers are set for very low pressure. It's hard to rinse off, the sink faucets also run slow. The staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet had a nice selection of foods. But the set up was a little scattered it was... More

This was a really nice, clean & roomy place to stay. Breakfast was fair but had a full breakfast with a nice big area to eat. We were going to the flea market & it was conveniently located across the stree but far enough off the road that there was no road noise. Bed was comfortable & bathroom was very... More
