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.

Best B&B Yet!

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!

October on the lakeshore

3.4 on October 28, 2014

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.

Gray Goose Inn is a true getaway

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 wanted a place we could stay where our dogs would be welcome too. We were all very comfortable and just loved taking the dogs out by the lake and to the beach at Indiana Dunes.

Return weekend to Chesterton

4.0 on October 12, 2014

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.

Nice place to stay in a great location

3.2 on October 09, 2014

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.

Quaint and Charming by the Dunes

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.

Incredible Romantic Get Away

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.

Nice B & B

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!
