This is typical Amish fare. Comfort food and plenty of it. A quality meal served family style. This is not a low sodium cuisine but if that doesn't bother you it's a great place for a group. We went to a play after Josiah for president. It was good; big senior audience and the theater is "Branson' ish"

The Blue Gate Garden Inn was extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was very courteous. The Blue Gate Garden Inn is located in a nice location, nice shops and things to see. Our stay was nice and pleasant. I couldn't ask for more. The price was also very reasonable.

Some of our group had the privacy walls between the beds and really enjoyed the privacy included with sharing a room. We all enjoyed our visit and the hotel was excellent. The room rate includes a full breakfast which... More

We recently stayed at the Blue Gate Garden Inn while exploring the Shipshewana community. Absolutely, the best hotel experience we've had! The Blue Gate is beautiful inside and out. It's obvious, they pay close attention to every little detail. We stayed in a patio room and thoroughly enjoyed sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet of the early evening and... More

Don't miss this gem of a getaway in the peaceful midst of Amish Country! I am a former central reservations employee of Disney World hotels and I was trained to look for quality. You'll find it here without any fantasy!

I really like the Blue gate Garden Inn, the people at the front desk are nice and very friendly. The rooms are nice, I recommend staying on the third floor otherwise it can sound like a herd of elephants are above you. Over all it's a very relaxing place to spend a night or weekend. They serve a nice breakfast... More
