This hotel is clean and nice. The guy at the front desk laughed at me when I checked in and said I wanted to reserve the same room for next year. He said I couldn't do that, and without skipping a beat the employee standing next to him working on a check-in said "yes she can"! The highly touted breakfast... More

Have stayed here once a year for 9 years. May not stay again. There were 5 machines in the fitness center, 1 was in working order. When we informed the front desk person, she said "sorry" and walked away.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Farmstead Inn, this time with another couple. Witnessed cleaning crew actually wiping down legs and bottom side of chairs in lounging areas, hand wiping decorations, and dusting off light bulbs inside lamps! Might be the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. Bed as mentioned by others was very comfortable... More

The rooms are very large and very clean. The bed was quite comfortable and the shower was very good with plenty of hot water. The breakfast included all of the things you would expect at a pricey motel from eggs to cereal. It is convenient to everything in town but after 6 pm there is literally NOTHING to do in... More

Did not have reservations so my fingers were crossed when we arrived. The huge flea market had packed up for the day so the town was no longer busy. The room was clean, the hotel was quiet, the coffee good and the breakfast substantial in a bright and airy room. The negative: 1) The black out blind did not roll... More

We were treated very well, had great breakfast in the morning, nice quiet room and it was a very clean facility! All in all a nice place. Loved the touches of Amish quilts, knick knacks and nice wide hallways.

We have had family Christmas twice at this hotel in the past because of what it offers. After recovering from a stroke, my husband suggested we go back, just the two of us to Farmstead Inn. We booked and received confirmation before coming. We were not informed that the hot tub spa area that it is famous for having would... More

I have been staying at this hotel since it first opened and have always been very happy. A group of us came last month during flea market. We had all our stuff and when we checked in weren't given very good directions. We had to go up stairs, down stairs and generally got lost. Wasn't told we were in the... More

We've stayed here at least once a summer for the past 4 years. The rooms are clean and seem to be larger than most hotel rooms we've stayed at. Very spacious and comfortable. We have always enjoyed the free breakfast which has the waffle maker, sausage gravy and biscuits, as well as fruit. Located directly across from the Shipshewana Flea... More

I will qualify this by saying we stayed in the west wing which i believe is the most recently constructed of this large and sprawling hotel. Very simple but nice high quality furnishings, comfortable mattress. Everything was spotless and appeared almost brand new. Loved the roominess, even in a double queen room (king was unavailable). Breakfast line on flea market... More
