Reviewed 23 June 2014

Our first visit to Shipshewana and we bought a Blue Gate hotel/meal/concert package and it was well-worth the price. We wished that we could have stayed another day or more.... We had a room on the 3rd floor and the rooms are spacious, clean, well furnished...the beds are comfortable and the gift basket with local goodies was such an incredible gift to find when you walk in the door. We had the morning buffet breakfast and it was great...lots of options and they even had GLUTEN FREE waffles. That's amazing!!

The atmosphere was serene and comfortable... The concert was great and best of all--when it was done, you only had to walk next door to get back to your hotel. Very convenient.

We loved our visit and can't wait to come back!!!

The only thing I didn't care for was that the walls are very thin and you can hear the people in the next room quite clearly--this was solved by having the fan run the whole time. Check-in wasn't until 3pm, so we didn't get nearly enough time to really enjoy our room since we were only there for one night and the concert and dinner took the whole evening.

Room Tip: We loved our third floor room... Some of the 1st floor rooms have patios with rocking chairs. That...

At the last minute we decided to stop in Shipshewana on our way home. No reservations but the lady at the desk got us a room with a king and queen. The beds have a wall between them which is a nice added touch. Room felt a bit cramped. GREAT BREAKFAST!!!

In this Amish-Mennonite community this is a lovely place to stay. It is spotlessly clean, there is free parking, it is quiet, has free parking and a delicious breakfast. For breakfast very fresh homemade bread, fresh fruit, omelette a made to order and much more. The staff are warm & friendly making the experience pleasant. The rooms have flat screen TVs, good beds & bedding & lots of accessible outlets to plug in chargers.

4 of us stayed here for the first time. We stayed 2 nights.. Room was small, but, very clean with 2 queen beds. We had a private patio right off of our room, which was lovely in the evenings.. The free breakfast was very good. You eat from real plates and silverware, no paper or plastic here. Biscuits and gravy was excellent, omelets made to order. Large pleasant dining room. The staff was very nice.. One of the housekeepers was cleaning the room next to us, which had a living room with fireplace, large bathroom, kitchenette, 2 TV's, can sleep 4 or 5.. We asked if we could look at the room. She invited us in and showed around. Even took us to see a larger room with 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms.. Next year, we are going to stay in one of the larger suites. The swimming pool was being built, so that area was closed. Will open in summer of 2014. Looked very nice, had a commons area with an ice cream parlor. We can't wait to stay there again next year.

The facility was lovely and comfortable, however, the staff went the extra mile to help us when I discovered that the tickets I bought for the concert next door had been for 1pm (which we had missed) instead of 7pm, as I thought. The front desk staff immediately got in contact with someone from the concert hall who could exchange our tickets and all was well! We even got better seats! Thank you to the Blue Gate employees who went above and beyond!

Room Tip: I've stayed at the Blue Gate several times and always had a nice room.

My husband & I spent the weekend at Shipshewana. The hotel was amazing. The decor was beautiful, the staff went above & beyond to help us, answer questions, took our picture for us & gave us a beautiful & memorable gift in our room for our anniversary (a special made block with our names on it with our years of marriage & special scriptures from the Bible). Our room was beautiful & very spacious. We received a welcome basket with our package deal which contained wonderful food items from the bakery. Very much appreciated the large spacious bathroom. The hotel was nice & quiet. The breakfast area was one of the best I have ever experienced. There was plenty of tables & tons of food (make your own waffles, fruit,yogurt,made-to-order omelettes,biscuits,gravy,baked oatmeal,bread pudding,sausage & egg casserole,sausage patties,cereal,toast,juices,coffee,etc.) Could not have asked for more than what the hotel & staff provided. The pool is still being built & will be amazing when it's done. There is an ice cream parlor in hotel, a game room, an exercise room,etc. We will definitely stay here again....

Room Tip: Some of the rooms on the 1st floor had little porches with rocking chairs...would have loved to have...
