I came to the Potawatomi Inn for a break to rest and relax and truly enjoyed my 5 days here. It was early spring with dogwood and redbud in bloom and the woods filled with wildflowers and birdsongs -- not to mention the 14 Great Blue Herons that frequently visited the inn in early morning. I enjoyed the trails, the...

Would not stay here again!!! Can't take showers because of the water looking like this. Yes this was nice but they need to do a lot of updates!!! The beds are ok but the for the money it's not worth staying here.

I always stay in the old part of the Hotel. The new part, and the Hotels managment remind me of a hotel you find by every Highway Exit. Big, built not to last and totally uninteresting. The old part of the hotel and Restaurant are very nice and very ineresting. Don't go over to the new part of the hotel....

Took off with wife and son for an October get away. Room was adequate, if you did not mind the 7 am construction/renovation racket right outside your door. Small pool, dry sauna, hot tub (which was way to chlorinated, bleached out my wife's and son's swimsuits). Dinning room menu selections leaved a lot to be desired, maybe just wrong time...

My first stay at the Inn for a spiritual retreat by myself. It was perfect! I loved the location right by the lake, the quiet seating areas inside and outside, and hiking so close. I stayed in the historic part, which was a great location near the dining hall. The room wasn't huge, but just the perfect size with no...

We stop here on our way to and from Oberlin, from the Chicago area. We prefer the historic rooms, which are small, but cosy and well-designed. Some of the views from the Windows are great. We spent lots of time looking out our window at geese, deer, and an elegant Sandhill Crane. The building needs some work on the roof...

The older rooms are a bit small but comfortable. The larger, more expensive rooms are excellent. There are excellent, long walks available (takes us about 5 hours to do the larger loop). Not much in the way of bike trails. Boat rides are available. The food is good and not too expensive. We have been there often--three times a year--and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Potawatomi Inn and Conference Center is located in beautiful Pokagon State Park, on the shores of pristine Lake James, one of Indiana's largest lakes. Visitors will enjoy acres of outdoor recreational opportunities and all modern amenities. A historic structure, the Inn opened to the public in 1927. Many renovations and additions have added the modern conveniences that today's guests expect while preserving the historic importance of the Inn. The Inn features two restaurants. The Historic Dining Room is housed in the original historic section of the Inn and features a full menu and buffet service certain nights along with a bountiful Sunday Brunch. The Courtyard Cafe is a seasonal outlet that features quick service foods, our fresh baked pizza and ice cream. Guests can enjoy any one of the Inns many amenities including our craft room, where kids of all ages can create souvenirs to take home with them. Or if you are looking for a quiet place to read or do a puzzle in front of the fireplace, you can try the library or the Lonidow Lounge. Of course, the most popular amenity is the 1,600 acre Pokagon State Park with its miles of hiking and biking trails and not one, but two beaches. And don't think that we go dormant in the winter, from Thanksgiving weekend through the end of February the weekends come alive with the opening of the Toboggan Run which features two quarter mile refrigerated toboggan tracks that can reach speeds of 35 to 40 miles per hour! Come enjoy the Potawatomi Inn and Conference Center, Indiana's year round playground! ... more   less
