Clinton was SO HELPFUL and kind. He made the reservation process simple, easy, and fun! I can't wait to come stay =) I have been visiting this resort since I was in diapers and have seen the transitional process it has gone through and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Perfect place for a nice, quaint getaway.

Hunter has always taken care of me whenever I dine. He's always so friendly and helpful. I had a new server this week, I believe he is new and his name is Jason. Fantastic service and smile! Glad to see you have a solid crew at the restaurant this summer. It will make for a more enjoyable experience.

It was off season at lake Monroe and Fourwinds was a great place to relax. The staff was great and we really enjoyed our time there. The restaurant was really good and the kids really enjoyed the pool. Can't wait to come back when the weather is much warmer.

Angie returned every call and email promptly resolving every question in regards to our conference. All of our attendees gave glowing reviews of their stay.

We had a third floor room overlooking the marina. We stayed three nights. No problems making reservation and we got what we requested. Since it was February there were not a lot of guest, which was good for us! The decor is a little dated, but we like that. Bed was comfortable. We had a suite so the sofa was...

If you don't mind a 20 minute drive to Bloomington, this hotel is a excellent option. Our room was pleasant and clean. The grounds and pool are very nice. The hotel restaurant makes a good burger and breakfast, although I recommend one of the highly rated restaurants in Bloomington.

Thank you for your review. I regret that neighboring guests were a little loud. I regret reading you were disappointed with our breakfast buffet. Unlike branded hotels, our food is cooked fresh and doesn't arrive pre-cooked and frozen. We are proud of the variety and value that we offer.
