Everyone from our 3 year old to 40-something adults LOVED it! The indoor pool is a great one. It's huge with lots of big...

I was reared in IN but had never made it to Pokagon St. Park. Recently enroute from current home in TN to MI for Thanksgiving we slipped off the interstate for a couple of very pleasant days and nights in the historic part of the wonderful Potawatomi Inn ... charming! It was a "slow" period just before the holiday rush...

The Potawatomi Inn at Pokagon State Park is a wonderful place. There is much to do in the park. The lake is beautiful and can be seen from many places in the Inn. Our room was clean and comfortable. We will visit here again.

This was our third stay at the Inn, the second during warmer weather. This place is quite a gem nestled by Lake James in the far northeast corner of Indiana. It's a particularly great place for groups of family and friends to congregate because they have so many common areas for fun and games. They really thought about how much...

I've been going here once a year for longer than I can remember. It never ever disappoints. There is so much recreation options from a beach front, game room, pool, to nature trails. There are two restaurants located in the inn as well so you never have to leave the park to do anything. Literally one of my favorite places...

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
