The weekend was rainy and miserable but the inn was warm and comfortable. We arrived Friday evening and Tim helped us to pick out a restaurant for dinner. On Saturday we went shopping in the rain at the outlet mall in Michigan City (15 mins away) and came back to a warm, clean room where we turned on the fireplace and read until we left for another wonderful, recommended restaurant. The only complaint we had was that the weather didn't allow for walking around the lake. But the picture window in the dining room overlooking the lake was a beautiful treat at breakfast. The birdfeeders right outside the window made for perfect bird watching. We will be back!
We had such a wonderful time at the Gray Goose Inn! The grounds were so beautiful for walks. The location is perfectly seated right off the main road, but far enough away that you feel secluded in your little vacation world. The food was delicious! The common areas are just so wonderful. The house and rooms are so cozy and beautiful! Quite the little sanctuary! We can't wait for our next visit! We highly recommend this adorable bed and breakfast!
We spent one night - and it was wonderful. Room was large and beautifully decorated; in fact the entire inn was decorated for the holiday. The owner was so kind and very helpful in offering dining suggestions. One of the nicest B & Bs I've stayed in.
Very comfortable B&B. Great location near Indiana Dunes. Good wi-fi connection. There was a mix up on whether I would be attending breakfast and when I showed up it seemed to fluster the chef. He came up with a basic breakfast for me but it wasn't as nice as what was prepared for the other guests.
My husband and I have stayed at a good number of Bed & Breakfasts and this is our favorite. Such a lovely setting along the lake, nicely decorated rooms and great food! If you don't get a room with a fireplace you can enjoy the one in the living room! We will definitely go back!
Inn was beautiful in general, and suite overlooking the lake was also very cute. King bed was a little hard, and there was a septic tank smell in the bathroom. One cannot be bothered by train noise or bugs, as there was plenty of both. Breakfast was adequate but nothing special, and I suspect it wasn't up to par due to the small number of guests at that time of year. It was being decorated for Halloween when we left, and looked really great.
Amazing!!! The best decor and the friendliest owner Tim!!! He makes you feel so at home and taken care of. The rooms are absolutely SPOTLESS, everything is fresh and clean like you're coming home from College for the first time and your mom wanted to make you remember how wonderful home feels. It's relaxing and beautiful. And the breakfast is delicious and hand made. It rocked my morning and got me so excited about my day. I love it here and we can't wait to come back.
We moved from Chesterton 4 years ago, after having lived there for 14 years. We always wondered about what a stay at the Grey Goose Inn would be like. Well, we now have had the opportunity to experience the beautiful lake vista, friendly host and fantastic breakfasts. We are looking forward to our next visit to the Grey Goose Inn and Chesterton.
This B&B is in a great location, near the Indiana Dunes and near places to eat, but back in the woods, and on a pretty lake. It's a nice, quiet place to stay. The food was great, and coffee and tea are always available.
My sisters and I come here routinely and never tire of this homey, comfortable, beautiful inn. Every room is unique and inviting. The inn is always clean, warm, and comforting. The lake and grounds are lovely. Every morining they serve a gourmet breakfast. The service is excellent.
This is the BEST value in the region. Service is incredible. The rooms are great. You literally feel as if you are hours away. Wanna get away from it all for a night or weekend--this IS the place to go.
The Gray Goose was a nice quaint little place. The location is great. Easy drive to Dunes and southern Michigan Beach Towns. The breakfast was nice, room immaculate. Tim gave us great reccommendations for dinner. Make sure you get to Wagner's for ribs!
Great get away to enjoy the serenity of the pond and the gazebo. Outstanding breakfast all weekend. Holiday weekend rate was a little more than I would like to pay. Exceptionally clean rooms and facilities.
It was a wonderful surprise weekend for my wife and I wasn't sure what level of quality I would get but they definitely know how to treat first time B&B people. From the moment we walked in, to the massages, chocolates, roses, comfy beds (hottub, pool, game room available) to the amazing breakfast in the morning it was a delight.
The room, grounds view and close location to the Dunes made this a great 3 day getaway. We were a little disappointed in the dietary substibutions for a gluten free diet, but did not go away hungry.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in the Gray Goose Inn. We spent one night there in our weekend trip to see the Indiana Dunes. The location is fantastic, very convenient for the dunes, very close to downtown, shops, and restaurants, but inside a big, quiet property full of trees. They have a pond! Basically you enter the property and you forget about the world, it's so soothing! The inn keeper gave us valuable advice about where to eat and things to do in Chesterton. Communication with him since the moment of the reservation was very fluent, and always tried to accommodate our needs. We stayed in the Mallard Chamber. It is much bigger and nicer than the pictures show. Also, very clean. The restroom was impeccable. If I have to pick something less positive, I would say that the room temperature was too cold for my taste (72F maybe?) and I couldn't find a control to change it from the room. Anyway, this is just my taste, we visited during the labor day weekend and it was still hot outside so lower temperature can very well be a plus to other guests.
We spent our 44th anniversary at "At Home in the Woods Bed and Breakfast". Every detail was outstanding. The room was cute, cozy and clean. The snacks were REALLY YUMMY! The breakfast was both delicious and HEALTHY, which I think is unusual. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The garden is absolutely beautiful, with room to roam and lovely areas to sit and meditate. With so many wonderful things to do in the area, and so many delicious restaurants, my only regret is that we only spent 2 nights. I hated to leave.
My wife and I had a great couple of days at the Gray Goose Inn. Your host Tim is friendly and gracious. His breakfasts are great! The location is perfect to venture into Michigan City and/or the Dunes. The rooms are spacious and reasonably priced. Thanks Tim!
The Gray Goose Inn is not what you would expect to find nestled just outside of an active business and retail area. It is tucked away just far enough to feel like you are "away from it all" while also being "close to everything." The service was remarkable...as was the gourmet breakfast! The grounds and inn are lovely. This was our first visit and there's no question that we plan to return in the future!
The Gray Goose Inn is tucked into a lovely setting near a small lake off the main highway. The grounds are nice, with a screened gazebo and enough property to be able to take a walk. The inn itself is very pretty, decorated in a flowery English style. We stayed in the Gray Goose suite which was roomy and comfortable, with a fireplace and one room with large windows overlooking the lake in the back. Tim, the innkeeper, was pleasant but not effusive, and showed us around. The breakfast in the morning was delicious, and everyone was served quickly and efficiently. The only drawback for me was that trains go through town all night long, and as I am used to the peace and quiet of the country, that bothered me, but I imagine there are people who love the sound of train whistles in the night. All in all a lovely place to stay!
My wife and I went to the Gray Goose for a two-night getaway. We loved the room we stayed in as well as the service. Everything was clean, and any requests we had were handled in a timely way and with kindness. The breakfasts were fantastic, and the quiet, homey atmosphere was just what we needed.
Arrived early due to a time change and was met at the door and sent away. Could have at least offered us a drink and the beautiful grounds or the opportunity to sit in the lovely "living room" to watch the birds or play checkers.
