The Blue Gate is a lovely hotel close to the attractions in Shipshewana. The decor is homey - quilts, dried flowers, wallpaper. The rooms are large and clean. The staff are very efficient and helpful. Breakfast was included in our package. It was excellent with made to order omelettes, and many choices. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel provides a great place to stay in Shipshewana. It is on Van Buren, which is the major street in the village, but is slightly south of the busy area. Our room was a suite with a separate bedroom with a king sized bed, a middle queen sized bedroom divided off from the living room by a wall. It... More

We were pleasantly surprised, the Inn was beautiful and when we got to our room, we couldn't believe how nice it was. Everything was in its place and spotlessly clean. It's the first hotel we've stayed in, that you could wander around in my white sox, seeing everything and visiting the vending area and go back to our room and... More

The hotel is clean and nicely appointed. We chose a room with a patio. Though quite nice to be able to sit on the porch, it is important to know there is no privacy from the parking lot or your neighbor on the the porch next to you. It was not a problem for us; however, there was a large... More

From the front desk, breakfast room, pool and hot tub, sitting area around fire pit and ESPECIALLY the roomy, comfortable suite, it's the BEST I've experienced.....and the square bed pillows comfortable beyond even home.

We celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary there and was surprised to find a gift in our room(a personlized picture frame)which we appreciate greatly. Thank you Lori for taking care of everything for us. We recemend your package offer, it was great.

Absolutely love this hotel. This is the second time we stayed. This trip was a family get away to enjoy the town of Shipshewana and Amish Acres arts and craft festival in Nappanee. The hotel is clean, beds comfortable, and the food for breakfast is fantastic. The pool and hot tub are warm. The latest additions of a fire pit... More

Our stay in a double queen room was a delight! We saved a little by reserving a package by phone for room, dinner, and theater and check-in was seamless. Our room was spotless, in perfect repair, overlooking the patio and countryside, equipped with every convenience we needed to make our stay comfortable. The hot breakfast included with the room included... More

Very roomy and clean hotel. Located within a mile of the key points of interest in Shipshewana. Décor is tasteful and the furnishings are comfortable. Would stay here again; probably the best lodging in Shipshewana.

Rooms were nice ..need some detail cleaning in corners. Hotel rooms looks older then 3yrs old. Breakfast is pretty special they make omelets to order. Plus have a huge buffet of hot items. Have an Ice Cream area that opens at 5:00 suggest should be open on Sunday's.
