Came for a concert. It was nice to be next door. Loved the pool, breakfast was amazing, going to the Creamery after the concert was great. Room was large and clean. To many things to do in one day. Plan several if you can.

It is difficult to describe. The amount of open space and the places to gather or sit for a while were more than we had seen anywhere. Although we are not world travelers so our knowledge is limited. It was a very pleasant experience for us. The breakfast was more than we expected with many choices. The facility was clean... More

One of the best hotels we've stayed in. Very clean room. Comfortable bed and bed linens. New towels. A pool you can swim laps in. Very good breakfast with a variety of breads, meats and juice. One problem is the whole town of Shipshewana shuts down, restaurants included. You'll have to drive to Howe to find a place to eat.

Knowing the Blue Gate, I'm sure they are trying! I recently had a wonderful overnight stay on January 11th, at this exceptional hotel. After entering the spacious two story lobby with a warm fireplace, and a grand oak staircase, Julie checked me in, and assured me I would not want to leave... How right she was. Wide corridors promised there... More

We spent the night here after attending the Blue Gate Theater Christmas show. Our room was very cozy, comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and gracious. The breakfast was very good and there was plenty of seating. So many hotels offering breakfast have limited seating and we have had to wait for a table. So it was nice to... More

We visited again for New Year's Eve 2014. As always, the Inn staff was welcoming and efficient. The Inn was again very clean and well appointed. They served wonder Hors d'oeuvre's for after mid night enjoyment. Always a pleasure to stay here.

Such a wonderful stay. We stayed because we wanted to attend the Antique Auction. Very pleasant, clean, and staff was very friendly. Wonderful hot tub, very relaxing. I would definitely recommend this whether it is for a romantic getaway or time with family and friends.
