We had been to the restaurant and shops before, but had never stayed in the Inn. The furnishings and decorating in the Inn were beautiful, comfortable, and meticulously clean. We had a lovely balcony room overlooking the pond and grounds, and the only thing that marred the peacefulness of it was the view of Highway 20 in the distance. The clip-clop of the Amish buggies on the road made us feel like we were in another simpler world. The continental breakfast was above-average and served in a beautiful, sunny, and friendly setting. Just a hop skip and a jump to Shipshewana and many interesting Amish stores. We fully intend to return.
