Lovely facilities. Lunch and evening meals provided were extremely good. Breakfast , except for personalized omelets, was bleak.

First time in Shipshewana, IN and so glad that we decided to take the Blue Gate Amish Tour. 3 wonderful stops where we learned about woodworking, coffin making and what an Amish school is all about. Very eye opening and we learned a lot.
