We came just to get away for a couple of days. The food was wonderful as always, both the birthday family style and the buffet for the theater evening. We were able to purchase tickets for the Booth Brothers. Once again they lifted our spirits. Thanks for booking such wholesome groups at the theater.

There to see the Booth Brothers in concert. Loved the concert, love the Blue Gate theater. Seating is so close and intimate, you feel like you are part of the worship rather than setting so far away.

I have been to the Blue Gate many times. It is my favorite place in Shipshewana. The food is excellent, the shows are always great and the hotel has the best complimentary breakfast I have ever had.

We are regular customers of this great spot nestled in the middle of Amish country. We have never been disappointed from the time we make reservations to the time we check out. This is one class organization that tailers to families and couples alike. The breakfast itself is worth the trip to Indiana. We will be back again,and again,and again.

Am so glad to have made it to the Christmas musical before it ended. It was wonderful and so much fun. The entertainment there at the Blue Gate Theater is always top notch!
