We were visiting friends up the road who took us to Fourwinds for lunch. Great patio seating that overlooks the lake... Great for nice days! If we happen to make our way through this area again we would definitely look to stay here.

My boat is in a slip at the Marina. On the evening of 5/7/16 I took a fall on the dock and was badly injured. I heard there was a complaint about the security guys rushing thru a crowd of people on another dock that night. What those people didn't realize was that security was trying to get to a...

Just spent two nights here as part of a small family reunion. Truly wonderful resort and I have dubbed it "The Best Thing in Indiana".

We've docked our boat at the marina the last 2 years and stayed in the hotel several times. The marina staff is great. The hotel staff are great as well. The hotel is very nice and clean.

Thank you for your review. I welcome and appreciate your comments. We our very proud of our one-of-a-kind location in Bloomington. Our indoor/outdoor heated pool is salt water generated. Salt travels through the chlorination system at a rapid speed and becomes chlorinated, however you can not taste it in the water, like you can in the ocean. Thank you also...

This resort is absolutely beautiful! The hotel is very quiet and the rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. The weather was a little cool to enjoy the lake but the views were amazing. I truly enjoyed the Indoor Pool and Restaurants. We will definitely be back this Summer!

Our room was comfortable with a lakeside view. One of the highlights was the Beautiful Heated Pool. Only 30 min. from Bloomington and the Indiana University campus so lots of great dinning near by. Sandwiches in the Windjammer one evening and breakfast in the restaurant were good values. We were early in the season so the summer staff was training....
