We love going to Shipshewanna and staying at the Bluegate. We get the King patio room every time we come. The breakfast is fantastic. The pool and the hot tub is also one of our favorite places to go and relax

Was at the Blue Gate for some training, combined it with a night getaway with my wife. Facilities were clean and pleasant. Breakfast was plentiful; accommodations met basic needs. Staff was helpful with the training needs.

Purchased the romance package and we had a wonderful romantic getaway with a nice clean room and nice gift basket stuffed with lots of goodies. We had a lovely Valentine buffet and ventriloquist Ryan and Friends kept is in stitches. The next morning we had a huge breakfast buffet at the Garden Inn. It was a memorable weekend.

This was our second trip there. We thoroughly enjoy the hotel, amenities, friendly and couteous staff. We weren't to happy with the breakfast buffet this time around. But overall we have and will continue to tell everyone we know how great the Blue Gate is.

“They have many different room styles to suit every situation. We had one family room with bunk beds for small kids, standard hotel room for one couple, and rooms that had 2 beds with a wall divider for two couples and our family with my wife and I and our two adult children. Gives some privacy while staying all together, and it was great!”
