We received an Indiana State Park Inns gift certificate for our May 2016 wedding & chose the Potawatomi Inn w/ Winter 2 for 1 promotion. Arrived on Sunday afternoon & didn't realize until it was too late that the toboggan only ran Friday - Sunday so we missed out on that fun. Bummer, as we were really looking forward to...

Went to ride Toboggan Run for first time with wife and three kids. Had a blast. Went to the inn for buffet lunch. Everything was very good. Staff was high school aged, but friendly and competent. Would like to visit in the warm months. Another great State Park experience in Indiana.

We had a wonderful time at our visit to the Potawatomi Inn. We stayed at the historic cabins (72) and really enjoyed it. It wasn't super fancy, but it was clean and comfortable. It was adjoining with our travel companions which was an added bonus. The cabin could use a little attention to details (touch ups in the bathroom, etc),...

Each year our church group of seniors go to an Indiana Park Inn and take advantage of the BOGO Night Offer. It's a great deal on a fixed income. We play card games, dine at the Lodge Dining Hall, take in a fireplace or just read a good book. We always have a great time of fellowship with each other....

The welcome home feel is relaxing and reminds you of growing up in a small town. The unassuming grounds are expansive for hiking and the seasonal toboggan luge is unique (a speedy chiropractic appointment at 30+mpr) experience for anyone who can climb the stairs (and find someone in their family to lug the toboggan up the stairs). The buffet offerings...

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
