Booked two nights to take my mother-in-law to the Flea Market for her birthday Even though it was very last minute Brigitte still got us in for the weekend in one of the Rose rooms When we arrived, I was delighted to learn she had done some shuffling to get us the Lighthouse room so my husband and I could have a separate bedroom from my in-laws but still be booked together

MIL adored the place from beginning to end She found the decor absolutely delightful and being able to walk through the back garden gate to get to the Flea was incredibly convenient Visiting with the owner during breakfast was her favorite part though If they go out to Shipshewana again I’m sure they’ll be staying at the Old Carriage Inn

What’s not to love?? Nice atmosphere, you always feel welcome Great hostess whoe is very knowledgeable about the area sites Fabulous breakfast set up

if you leave hungry it is certainly your own fault Each room has private bathroom and shower Beautiful, quiet atmosphere, you can lull yourself to sleep with the clip-clop of the horse drawn carriages Best of all it is located within walking distance to the flea market so you can fill up and go right back for more! Love this place and would never consider staying anywhere else!!!

What a great campground!! By far one the best we’ve been to! The staff is absolutely amazing! The events they have are great! Games, movies, food trucks, parades, etc

Check in is super easy, detailed instructions of your site if doing late check in Easy to get in and out of Propane on site So much to do, you won’t want to leave!! We’ll be back!!!

I am an Adventure member and my son in law is also, we had reservations at Twin lakes on the same day My son in law a disabled veteran checked in a couple hours ahead of me and the site they gave him wasn’t large enough or flat enough to handle his rig so he went to the office a requested a different site He was told that their internet was down and so they offered him the vacant site next door but that was his only choice and it was basically the same and not adequate

The staff was very uncooperative He insisted they help him and they refused any further assistance He told the assistant manager to fing do something (not the best thing to do) he has had heat stroke and PTSD and both were happening at this point My son in law asked the staff to call for an ambulance that he needed help and they refused him and told him to get in his truck and go back to his siteI was stunned at their lack of professionalism, and concern for a customer This could have ended very badly This park has a history of poor customer service and needs to either retrain or replace staff members that can’t or won’t do their jobs These inadequate staffers left this park open to tremendous liabilities for no reason I certainly hope this event gets bubbled up for review by HR and Legal to make sure it doesn’t happen again

It is a wonderful, homey place to stayThank you for making our short stay a memorable experience We will be back for a longer stay the next time

Sandy Scheer

The Farmstead Inn was simply lovely on every level The whole Inn was spacious inside and out The staff and guests were peacefully engaging adding even more to the welcoming feeling over breakfast, around the pool, and in the comings and goings throughout the day

The central location made it easy to drive out to the area activities and adventures It was a joy to drive back in under the Inn’s welcoming arch opening to the beautiful lawns, the entry, spacious stairway / elevator, fireplace seating areas, and gracious room Our visit was soul filling and the glow is still radiating almost a week later…

We chose to stay here based on a recommendation from someone who stayed here a year ago We enjoyed shipshewanna but we would not be staying at this hotel again-we had a double queen room and the sheets on both beds were filthy, we asked twice for clean sheets and we were told we would get them, never did

-the pool was absolutely disgusting The filter wasn’t on and there was a gross “swill” on top of the water- there was barely enough food for the breakfasts-the front desk gal told us all about other guests, how many rooms they booked and how many extra people that came and how disruptive they were beingVery disappointed Would be a beautiful hotel with proper management

Rodeo Twister

Stayed in the suite 228 and was happy with the room, but carpet needed cleaned, there are spots on it, for the price it should be in little better shape 15 miles from the MEC arena, need more places to eat that stay open later, good breakfast, but needs better warmers, price was too expensive! Specially booked 2 months ahead

The other party i was with, booked at same time, didn’t get to check into 8pm they were still having to clean rooms that late!! Booking ahead we should not have to wait when having to go to show and not have our room ready Plus they had to change room around as instructed we wanted them next to each other They didn’t do that Either room was ready anyway Need better schedulers!

Jessica Mayfield

We used to love this place, it has went downhill fast! Room was in horrible shape, busted blinds, tub fell apart with black mold all over, ordered extras, never got them, was so hard to get fresh linen each night for showers even Only enough coffee for one cup first morning even though stayed 3 People were so loud all night Saturday

The most important thing is that the hotel and rooms were super clean The Staff was super friendly, kind and helpful We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area

Although, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the ‘hot breakfast’ but all the À la cart items were substantial Our room air didn’t seem to cool down quite enough, and the light from the parking lot glared through our window and the blackout shade in our room wouldn’t close to block it out But the comfy beds & pillows were Fantastic and we got good sleep Super grateful to have had a clean, safe place to stay

Jeff Alexander

Room was nasty! Goldfish between the mattress and wall Crumbs all over the bed When management notified they acted like absolute fools! They finally agreed to refund our money but said we can never stay there again

Lmfao Your rooms are nasty and not clean! Why would I want to? Definitely would not recommend booking here You will be stuck last minute fighting with them and having to find somewhere else to stay for the night Save the energy and find somewhere else now!

Nice clean and friendly environmentRooms were well equipped however did not cater for people to make their own cup of tea in the room Coffee was provided

Milk needed to be purchased at a general store or service stationRoom were cleaned daily if you so requiredBreakfast was provided free in a small dining area and was suitable enough The only complaint I experienced was that on day two they ran out of bread at 8:00 AM and breakfast was slotted 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM Someone should have check quantities abd compared that to the number of guests and purchased additional bread just in caseThe same goes for the tin of Hot Chocolate I placed the empty Tin on the reception desk to find that they placed the empty tin back on the shelf for the guests for the next morningI went to reception and requested another role of toilet paper and received a coronal inquest, who was I what room was I in and why did I need it All of which didn’t need to happen, simple room number and hand over a roll was all it requiredApart from those couple of points I thoroughly enjoyed the place and would highly recommend giving it a try

Sylvia Mcgreevy

The rooms were nice they have a housekeeper there named Mary who does an exceptional job cleaning the room it always smelled nice and fresh each time you opened the door unlike two others we had during our six night stay it’s the first motel that has ever charged me an additional fee (cleaning fee) for my service dig $120 that was not indicated when I booked the room It may make me decide not to stay there again because NEVER have I been charged anything for my registered service dog

We stopped in Shipshewana to spend the night on our home back to Florida so we could shop at E&S Sales in the morning This hotel was very clean and up to date The hotel clerk was very friendly and he put us on the first floor right by the door where our car was parked to make it easy to haul our luggage

I will use this hotel next time I’m in town Thanks!
