We had a great time at the Blue Gate! The kids really enjoyed the swimming pool and ice cream from the ice cream shop. You get a great breakfast and enjoyed relaxing outside on the patio by the firepit.

Beautiful hotel and loved the blue gate suite. Breakfast was great as well. We enjoyed the pool hot tub and the beautiful patio to sit at with a water feature and fire pit. This was our first stay and we will return!

My friend and I enjoyed our stay during the Loretta Lynn concert. It was great to see her bus arrive from our window and not to have to drive and park to go to the concert later. The room was clean and bright. I only wish the buffet had also been in our hotel instead of downtown where it was...

The Blue Gate Garden Inn was immaculately clean throughout. The staff members have been well trained and recognize the importance of their customers to sustained business. The room was sized right. The bathroom is laid out well. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was great. Highly recommend!

Loved having the patio with those comfortable glider rockers. Had our morning coffee out there. Everything was clean and neat. Very welcoming. Lots of public space with comfortable conversation seating areas throughout the hotel. Great breakfast - not just the usual hotel fare.

Friendly and helpful staff with the exception of one rude person behind the desk (wish I would have written down her name). Rooms were clean but sleeper sofa could have used a steam cleaning. Breakfast was better than most but still a hotel breakfast Overall its a nice place and would recommend it to anyone staying in Shipshewana.
