We only stayed one night, but it was a great experience! The room was very clean. There was a half wall between the beds which gives some privacy. The outside lounge area was very relaxing, we did not use the pool but the other guest who did said it was nice and clean. We'll stay there again if we make... More

We took full advantage of the amenities during our stay. Traveling with a 7 year old, the ice cream shop in the evenings and the pool were the highlights for her. The breakfast superseded our expectations. Our accommodations included 2 bedrooms, a sitting room with a mini-frig, microwave and tv. Adults and child were very comfortable in this picturesque hotel... More

Our experience at your establishment was superb!! We visited Shipshewana with our son, daughter-in-law and three grandsons. The rooms were large and clean. We had a patio that allowed us to be outside and relax. There was even a fridge and microwave in the room. The pool area was clean and the water temp was perfect. The complimentary breakfast was...

This was our second time staying here and buying the Blue Gate Package which includes the play, hotel, family-style dinner, and super breakfast. It is a great value in a beautiful hotel. Maybe next time we'll try to stay longer to enjoy all the amenities they offer. They try hard to make your stay wonderful. It's great!

From the moment we checked-in till the moment we left for home, our stay at the Blue Gate Garden Inn was perfect in every way. Our check-in was very easy and the employees at the Front Desk were extremely courteous.The Inn overall is so welcoming both inside and out with gorgeous flower baskets surrounding the property. Inside the expansive lobby... More

My wife and I took four of our grandchildren to the Blue Gate Garden Inn and were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. Greeted with a friendly welcome, we continued to the family suite and were really pleased with the set- up and the cleanliness. The pool area was a great attraction for our grand boys as was...

This was a one night stay and I can't say enough about the inn. Very friendly staff and the accommodations are clean, safe, and comfortable. A great breakfast with a friendly chef greeted us the next morning. The only con is there is only one entrance and it was a long walk to the room. WiFi was a bit slower... More

The hotel was cold but you could adjust your room temperature. The indoor pool area was heavily drenched with chlorine. The pool and outdoor patio closed down at 10:30 so there wasn't time to enjoy them. The breakfast was a disappointment. Omelets were served on cheap paper plates. The package deal was a 15 minute carriage ride that you had... More

My daughter and I recently spent 3 nights at the Blue Gate Garden Inn and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This property is beautifully maintained and tastefully decorated; the breakfasts (included in the price of the lodging) are excellent. We were both very impressed and certainly hope to return in the future.
