I don't know how this hotel doesn't have a better rating. It definitely gets a 5 from me. Our whole room was very nice and updated and the bed was nice also. We also had a balcony overlooking the golf course. Another nice thing was the sauna and the fact that they have their own marina.

Nice Labor Day weekend stay at Fortune Bay. The restaurant at the golf course is excellent. I would suggest bringing your own wine and paying the corkage fee. The golf course was in excellent condition. Some of the friendly staff I have ever encountered.

Spent a few days hear and had a nice time. The location on the lake was beautiful and quiet. The loons were more noisy than guests. The room was nice, a bit out of date, but more than worth the price. The good was good and the amenities was as stated. I'll stay again.
