The bathroom had hair on the toilet and in the bathtub. Then my son used the toilet and it literally overflowed the bowl all over the floor. Got relocated. The sheets on the bed looked just like mine at home but theirs were very thin and looked ready to shred. Sitting chair had stains on it. We were located near... More

We came up and stayed at the Fortune Bay Resort because we have family in the area. From the moment we checked in until we checked out, it was nothing but outstanding. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, and the view from our room with the golf course and lake was fantastic. Thanks for making it a great... More

My wife and I just spent 3 nights in a Fortune Bay Resort King Suite. The room was very nice; comfortable furniture, a nice little balcony with a view of Lake Vermilion, a comfortable king size bed, very good hi-def LG televisions, and a nicely equipped little kitchenette with a mini-frige and a microwave. We played golf on their beautiful... More

We spent the night at the casino hotel. The rooms were very modern, clean, and attractive. You do pay for it, $100 in our case, but being a golf resort on a lake helps justify the price. A very nice touch was that the casino provided a free pig roast today to card holders. It was good! We have eaten... More

We are from the Minneapolis area and took the four hour drive up to the Wilderness not knowing what to expect (only from what we had heard and read on line). Well we were not only impressed with the course but the facilities are top notch and most importantly the staff was the best we have ever seen. From the... More

If you are not a gambler, there is golf and fishing, water sports etc. Choices of restaurants to have your meals at reasonable prices. The scenery... More
