Very clean and friendly, morning buffet was good. We were there on a Tue. night for the barn auction on Wed., thought we'd have a frig. & micro but didn't, also no coffee pot for early am. Didn't want to go down in my jammies to get it, would rather have a coffee maker in the room. Also no alcohol,... More

We spent 2 nights here recently. Check-in was a bit slow, and they informed us it was non smoking and no alcohol was allowed on the premises. We knew that and made our way to the room. The room was very basic, 1 tiny bottle of shampoo and 2 small bars of soap. Nothing else, no coffee maker either but... More

Great location and the room was one of the cleanest I have ever stayed in. Good pool area ping pong and basketball, go figure. Walk to town auction and flea market. Nice museum is just next door. Breakfast is the usual biscuits and gravy cold cereals, waffles and fruit cocktail.

We stayed at the Farmstead for one night during spring break. They had a special running with a really good rate for one night. The hotel is clean and spacious. The pool & hot tub are fine (although the hot tub was pretty hot, so watch the kids in there). They also have indoor basketball as well as indoor ping... More

My family always enjoys our time at the Farmstead Inn. We appreciate the family environment that the hotel's culture has. We always enjoy the amount of families that are enjoying family time. I have never been to a cleaner hotel. The staff is warm and welcoming. We will continue to go to the Farmstead whenever we can!

The Farmstead Inn is a great place to stay while in Shipshewana - with a delicious continental breakfast (with hot items as well as cold), 24 hours tea and coffee, a great pool area and gym. There is also a play area outside along with walking trails, shops nearby and great Amish restaurants. The only reason this hotel didn't get... More

Nice Inn. Lobby areas are cozy with fireplaces and comfy furniture. Rooms were clean, but some of the furniture placement made it hard to get around. Pool area was clean. Meeting rooms were adequate. Nice Breakfast area and choices. We enjoyed our stay very much and already have plans to return next year. :)

Stayed here for the weekend with a large group of family members of all ages. Rooms are adequate and clean. Staff is friendly. Lots of things to do at the hotel itself--basketball, pingpong, swimming pool (with enclosed, smaller pool for toddlers). Has an adequate breakfast in the morning with a nicely-sized dining area. That all being said, it's a great... More

If you are interested in staying in the heart of Amish Country, you couldn't find a better spot than the Farmstead Inn. The hotel has a very warm, family-style environment. It is very clean. The staff are exceptionally nice. This hotel is basically right across the street from several Amish oriented businesses that sell a variety of hand made furniture... More

This past weekend, I stayed at the Farmstead Inn for a Scrapbook Weekend and was snowed in. I cannot believe the kindness of the owner and his staff. First off, he offered us a reduced rate to stay an extra night and not drive home in the blizzard. Then they allowed us to continue using the conference room without charge.... More
