The Fourwinds Lakeside Inn and Marina is situated in a beautiful area. It is very tranquil and cozy, and our room was so nice. I would like to give five stars to Michele Lord, our server, for doing a great job in the dining room. We had breakfast there this morning, and she was very competent.

Visited for a fall football weekend, when all the downtown hotels were booked...quite a hike from Bloomington proper. Very dated facility, could use a refresh. Lake access so probably a better location for spring/summer.

The lake does have increased activity in the warmer summer months but we strive for a... More

We have been to this resort several times. The staff are always fun, the views amazing and the atmosphere relaxing. This week end, they sponsored the DNR "First run/walk" What a great way to give back to the people in Indiana. Thank you for your hospitality!

This trip was for my birthday. I was excited about this resort because I had heard so much about it. These folks know nothing about customer service. They are as "dry as sandpaper". The restaurant was nothing to write home about. The rooms are outdated and the walls are paper thin.We could hear everything the couple in the next room... More

From driving into Fairfax Recreation Area back to the resort, the scenery is astounding and all areas are maintained superbly. Walking in to the resort you find an ambiance of quiet beauty with a welcoming smile on every face. The rooms are easily accessible and well maintained. The food is delicious and the service excellent. Dorian gave us all the... More

Had a great time at a great location for a great value. Those not taking advantage of the off-season rates and availability are truly missing out. It's almost like having the resort all to yourself. Fantastic pool, stunning view from the 3rd floor balcony, clean comfortable room, and awesome service. Summer is not the only time you can take advantage... More

Room very quiet and comfortable. Bed was perfect. Refrigerator quietest I have ever shared a room with. The lobby smells of chlorine from the swimming pool. Too bad they can't change to a salt system to lose that harsh odor.

We visited this resort in October during the work week. This is off season and the resort was barely occupied, but the service was great. We loved having a breakfast buffet which gave ample choices---especially since we were the only people eating there on two of the mornings. Michelle Lord was our server; she was very friendly and helpful. The... More

We were there for a family wedding and it was a fantastic place. The rooms we had all opened out onto a large lawn overlooking the lake and the view was beautiful.

This is such a lovely property, I thought I would try it again despite a disappointing experience in August 2014. Things were much improved this time in terms of cleanliness, maintenance and service. We had no problems at all this time. Rates are all over the place depending on how busy they are. We paid $239 for a Saturday night,... More
