We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. The room was nicely decorated, beds were ok, pillows kind of lumpy. The first night I was woken up by knocking. I thought someone was at the door, but at 2 am, I was not going to answer the door.. a short time later, someone knocked on the wall and loudly told...

I was looking for a place to have breakfast in a quiet and relaxed setting. I found that place at the Fourwinds Inn restaurant. Ot is a wonderful place for a quiet, weekday breakfast with a spectacular view of Lake Monroe. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and the wait staff service was even better. Waitress Michelle Tiernan was fantastic. I...

beautiful lakeside scenery, comfortable rooms with beautiful decorating. Karis and the staff at the front desk were very polite, helpful and more than willing to help out with all of our requests. We will be back to take advantage of the scenery again.

3/5 for the hotel because the bed was uncomfy and the food SUCKED. 5/5 for the night manager Clinton for being extremely helpful, kind and all around just a cool dude. Clinton immediately came up to our room when our TV wasn't working. He was so poised and prompt and polite and professional. He made us feel welcome and let...

My husband and I spent the night for our Valentines. The hotel and views are beautiful. We never dreamed we would be able to sit on our porch in February. We did encounter issues... our neighbors were EXTREMELY loud and not behaving well on their patio so we requested a room move since it was not busy. The front desk...

I visited this property for a Retreat. While my travel there was a bit hectic due to construction and navigational issues, I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to the beautifully landscaped property. Surrounded by water, it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle for a serene getaway. The marina was amazing and the outdoor space is simply beautiful!...
