The Gray Goose Inn, Country English in style sits on 100 wooded acres overlooking private Lake Palomara. As you enter the front door you imediately sense the spirit and tradition of our Colonial heritage. A mixture of antiques, fine reproductions, tapestries, and old prints set the stage for your stay. A gourmet breakfast is served in our dining room reminiscent of an English pub. While dining watch Canada Geese, Ducks, Blue Heron and other wildlife. Walking trails ring the lake for the nature lover or for just a leisurely walk. Guest rooms are individually decorated from Shaker, 18 century English, French Country to English Victorian. A truly unique corner of Dunes Country.

Exceptional food, peaceful by the lake

4.6 on September 17, 2014

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.

Mini vacation at Gray Goose

Spent two nights in early September

Great location for a 3-day getaway

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.

Great Place great breakfasts

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!

Nice place to stay, housekeeping needs to do a better job of cleaning under chests and beds. Very dusty. I would stay again however. Innkeeper was very nice and breakfast was very good

A Pleasant Surprise!

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 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!

Lovely B&B

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!
