True advertising. Scott was great. On the premises, instant service. Really cute, and clean and in very close proximity to attractions. But you didn't need them, fun stuff to do right there with the pool and cornhole. Not to mention the patios, and fire pits. Lot of gravel bring good shoes, and the bug spray. Am so going back. If ever there check this place out!!

We stayed here the weekend of June 28-30 for a family reunion. I rented both studios side by side (got a discount for renting both)- one for myself and my toddler and the other for my teenagers. They loved having thier "own house"- even though there was a joining door. My extended family stayed at the INNs on the IN Beach property (the park is only 3-5 mins away) and this place was much better and bigger! It felt like a home away from home. The staff was excellent, the accommodations were clean, simple and very comfortable. There is a place to grill, the pool is a nice size, Jak's across the street has great take out or dine in options. The best of both worlds- of a hotel and resort. I read prior posts so I was prepared with extra "home items" like towels, plates, flatware, lysol, bug spray, toiletires etc but didn't really need any of it! Highly recommend if your visiting IN BEACH or just need to get away.

Room Tip: Suites are a great option and value especially with kids of varying ages that includes teens so that...

My wife and I stayed an evening here on June 30th. We had no problems finding Blue Door as it's a straight shot north of Indiana Beach about three miles. We stayed in a suite which was plenty big for just two people. As soon as you open the door there's a sense of order and cleanliness. You really get the feeling you're at the beach. I reserved the room online at Blue Doors website. They fill you in on what is offered and what you should bring for your stay. So before we even made the trip we knew what was needed. They offer way more amenities here than you're going to find almost anywhere, especially for their prices. Everything from boat rental, outdoor games, a movie library, and a restaurant " Jakes Beach House " just steps away. The staff here are very helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We honestly just sat back and relaxed on our two chairs provided outside our cottage, with a nice cold beverage and the sound of watercraft on the water. Remember though this is a family oriented place, if you just want a complete couples get away with no children probably not for you. But most people staying here are generally taking the family to Indiana Beach or Lake Shafer. So keeping that in mind Blue Door is definitely worth a stay though! We will for certain be back in the near future!!

Room Tip: suites are excellent.

My family (7 adults and 3 kids ages 1 - 3) stayed in two of the cottages. Unfortunately, I booked too late to get a double, but that was not a problem at all - we only had one cottage between us. We were only there for one night (went to Indiana Beach the next day), but we enjoyed it. The kids loved the little play area. The cottages were clean and comfortable. We did have an issue with gettng access to the internet, but Scott did respond to our call and checked on it first thing in the morning. Turns out there were a couple of dead spots on the complex and if we had gone to the other cottage, or just walked out to the picnic table, we would have probably had access. Some liked the food at the restaurant across the street but several of us did not. It's about six miles to more options - I would opt for that next time. My son wished we had brought something to grill. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed at Blue Door cottages early in July 2012, and it was a great experience. We will definitely return. The cottages were VERY clean, and had everything you could ask for. I had to drag my daughter out of the pool every night, the pool area was very well maintained, as were the grounds in general. The location is perfect, close enough to Indiana Beach that it only takes a few minutes to get there, but far enough away that you don't have the noise, etc. The staff was awesome, and very friendly.
