Waiting in line at a Shipshewana ice cream stand recently, I struck up conversation with a couple from New York who meet up with a group of other couples annually, and they RV camp in nearby Goshen.
“Staying in Goshen,” I thought to myself, “I wonder how many Shipshewana visitors do that?”
Turns out, quite a few, and one of the places they enjoy staying is at Goshen’s Super 8 Hotel.
This value hotel is located on the southeastern tip of the town of Goshen, close to shops and also to the Amish community in that area (If you enjoy exploring the backroads in search of cottage industries, this is a nice location.).
Something very important to travelers is a clean room, and this Super 8 fits the bill in that area. The hotel also offers what we assume are standard amenities such as Wi-Fi, hair dryer, suites, and laundry facilities. However, never “assume” these amenities are free; I recently stayed at a higher-end hotel near Chicago, and Wi-Fi there was a $10.00 per day charge. Yeah, I didn’t use it.
Super 8 also has a free breakfast waiting for you each morning, along with the all-important fresh, hot coffee.
Take the Amish backroads from Goshen’s Super 8, and you’ll enter Topeka, home of Yoder Popcorn.
And of course, Shipshewana is never too far away. As a matter of fact, from here, you can travel east through Millersburg on into LaGrange County into the little towns of Topeka and Emma, then up into Shipshewana. You’ll really enjoy the drive, and you’ll see tons of places to stop and visit.
All in all, Super 8 is a pretty “super” place to hang your hat for awhile.
