I have stayed here three times now, in the same suite each time. You will not find a better hotel in the area. If you are visiting Shipshewana, it's only about 10 to 15 mins away in Middlebury. Even if you don't get a suite, they have rooms with a balcony, patio, kitchenette, whirlpool tubs, and it is very clean, very comfortable. The decor is country class.
Stores on site, though a bit expensive, but you can always find some little thing to pick up. Bakery is heaven, restaurant is crowded, but usually goes fast. Very good meals, not gormet cuisine, just down home meat and mashed potatoes kind of food. Always free coffee and cookies in the lobby and everyone is very sweet. View of the grounds and landscaping is relaxing. I will always recommend this place.
