What was once an old factory building with a convenient location is now known as the Shipshewana Craft Barn, renovated in 1984. This was the beginning of the Riegsecker Marketplace and has since evolved with additional shops, furniture store, restaurant, hotel, and theater that are now called the Blue Gate Hospitality Co.
At Shipshewana Hotels Blue Gate Garden Inn, guests can enjoy some of the best AmishMennonite cooking around, shop for locally crafted furniture, enjoy outstanding entertainment, and much more. The company now has a restaurant, 3 retail stores, bakery, theatre, event center, hotel, catering, backroad Amish tours, and carriage business.
The Shipshewana Furniture Co., Shipshewana Craft Barn, and Traditions Furniture Store offer some of the highest quality furniture and home décor in the country, with 90% of the finely crafted furniture made locally within 30 miles of the store.
Since the company’s founding, the quickest growing part has been the Blue Gate Restaurant. Opened in the mid 80's the Blue Gate, and formerly Der Strudel Haus, the restaurant had 50 seats and one dining room. Over the years it has grown to 105 seats and two dining rooms, but it was still not big enough for the number of people who wanted to eat there. After 20 years the old Blue Gate was torn down and a new state-of-the-art facility was built. The new Blue Gate Restaurant seats 750, with 6 dining rooms, a fully-functioning bakery, and a theatre. As the Marketplace continues to grow the Blue Gate will be an integral key.
There are 154 exceptional guest rooms at the Blue Gate Garden Inn that are designed to welcome both leisure and group travelers. Unique guestrooms are nicely appointed, offering several choices from classic queen rooms to multi-room suites.
