We really enjoyed staying at the Blue Gate! Our room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and the staff some of the friendliest around. One of the staff, Taylor, even printed up some school papers for my daughter to take to register her son at school the next day! We were very pleased with our... More

Would recommend the Blue Gate Garden Inn to anyone wanting to stay in Shipshewana. The staff were very friendly and the place was clean. We had one of the suites so we had plenty of room for the four of us. Large selection for breakfast. We had a great time!

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms, breakfast and the Lilac Room was a great meeting place for us Red Hatters. Because of some confusion, we upgraded to a suite and we loved it!!!! Would love to come back!

Wonderful place to stay in Shipshewana, Indiana. Hotel is immaculate inside and out. The breakfast compares to no others, fresh made to order omelets, fresh sliced fruit and the offerings go on. Brand new indoor pool that is family friendly. Located just 1/4 mile from the flea market. I highly recommend this hotel, you won't be disappointed!

The hotel and staff are great. Bring your swim suits, cause even if you don't want to swim, the jacuzzi does wonders after hours of walking! Highly recommend their pkg. deal. Be sure and spend the hour it takes to visit Menno-Hof on main street. Not much walking and so very informative about the amish culture. Also, next to hotel,... More

This hotel is beautiful. The pool and hot tub room is huge and gorgeous. Perfect for all ages. The breakfast buffet had employees making omelettes for you with lots of options and they were very fast. Many other homemade choices. Our room was huge and our king size bed was very comfortable. We were right next to the elevator and... More

The pool looked beautiful and jacuzzi too, wish I would have had time to take advantage of them. Everything is clean and fresh, grounds are beautiful. Bed was... More

It was our first time staying at the Blue Gate Inn and we got the package. We return every year and plan on getting the package again. Everything was top notch our entire stay! Beds were comfortable, room was clean and the food was excellent!
