Really enjoyed the delicious breakfast. The omelet chef was personable and made delicious omelets! The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, and the pool and outdoor basketball court were added blessings.

The Blue Gate is THE PLACE to stay in Shipshewana! If you’re seeing a concert next door, it’s just a simple walk thru the parking lot. Bringing the kids? The family rooms have all you need. There’s a game room, ice cream parlor, pool and hot tub and a beautiful outdoor area, where you can sit around the fire pit and look at the stars! Bringing a group! The gathering area near the pool features a large screen TV, tables to eat your meals and lots of trinkets from Stars who have played next door. Beautiful decor, clean, safe and the full, free breakfast offers everything you could want....eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, waffles, made to order omelets, fresh made pastries, and more!

We stayed 2 nights in this quaint area of the country. The Van Buren was noce. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were large enough for 2 to get ready. Wallpaper was "country cute" but works with the area. Rocking chairs outside. Breakfast was included but nothing special. Like any other inexpensive hotel chain. Kind of expected better breakfast food for Amish territory. The room above us was REALLY loud when people would get out of bed in the night. Creeky floors. May be just the trouble with room 133.

The dining here is divided into two areas, both have the identical food offerings. Upstairs it’s a menu al-a-carte while downstairs it’s an all you can eat buffet at a fixed price. The service is great, the food is great, all you need is great company.

Hi there,

From the review provided, it sounds like you are referring to our Blue Gate Restaurant, rather than the Blue Gate Garden Inn. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit at our Restaurant, with so many tasty options you can't go wrong! Hopefully you stopped by the bakery to purchase some sweet treats to go as well! Thank you for being a loyal customer! See you soon!
