The grounds were beautiful and immaculate. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic. The room rates were reasonable. We were sad to leave. We will definitely book reservations to stay there again.

We did an overnight here on a Saturday. We caught a show at the Shipshewana Event Center that is next door. The hotel is very clean and staff very friendly. The breakfast the next morning was of high quality and plentiful. It was the best hotel breakfast we have ever had.

This is our favorite place to stop. Very friendly staff who help you with anything you need. When we checked in, they called our room 20 minutes later to see if we needed anything and that our room was satisfactory. Breakfast was awesome with all kinds of fresh fruit, custom made omlets and they even had gluten free waffles! Ursula...

“Thea only frustrating thing was even though there is a kitchenette, there wasn't any plates or silverware available in the room. Paper plates & plastic silverware would have been good. ”
