“Great Family Vacation”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

It was my mothers 90 th birthday and all our children and extended family gathered at the four winds for the celebration. It was nice to have the suites where the kids can stretch out and we can make sandwiches and light snacks. We sat on the balcony with cocktails and watched the kids play outdoors and read and relaxed in a beautiful surrounding. My brother and the boys went out on the lake While we went for a beautiful walk on their nature trail. The only negative i could say was was that one our room wasn't ready on time but the management was great and gave us all late checkouts. We asked for extra towels and blankets which came promptly. Overall we had a memorable long weekend.

Room Tip: If you want a view, ask for lakeside suites.

We thought the room was great and beautiful view. We did find trash under our bed the first night. That wasn't the big issue with housekeeping - the 2nd night at 5pm we still didn't have a clean room not even towels and we needed to get ready to go out that evening we had plans. We called the front desk and they said someone was coming. We were out on our balcony and the person just dropped off towels nothing else was done. It was after 6 by then. Our trash cans were overflowing and they didn't leave coffee or bathroom supplies. We called front desk again - they sent someone up with coffee but we had to ask again for bathroom supplies. They are clearly short staffed on the housekeeping side. We had trouble with our air when we checked it but Dan came up in a timely matter and fixed that so that wasn't an issue. We understand things happen but the housekeeping was a big issue. It should never have taken 3 calls to get the basic necessities and still not have a clean room. It was shame because the room was nice, the view beautiful and the grounds were nice as well.

Room Tip: stay on the lake side it was worth it - we didn't have room service or visit a spa

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

We appreciate your kind words as far as the rooms our beautiful location and view. We sincerely apologize for our housekeeping staff. You were spot on with the fact we must have been short handed, we most definitely were. Again please accept our apology and know that this is unacceptable for us as it is for you. The staff is mostly new and we are struggling with finding good help. We will get the right staff hired. By the time you read this the job should be done..

We hope we have the opportunity to show you great housekeeping services on your next visit.

Safe travels to you and your family.

I had trouble with my boat today. I was putting my boat in the lake and encountered some issues. I purchased a battery, but when I got to the lake, the boat refused to start. Tony came right over and fixed the issue on the spot. We were able to enjoy the rest of the day on the water.

The service staff always greets you with a smile and makes you feel like family!!

Service Center for the marina. Tony Smith was very helpful today, I went in to discuss the pump that pumps my gray water out, it always gets clogged and smells and has to be cleaned out. Was tired of having too clean it out all the time. Tony suggested a simple fix of pouring a small amount of bleach down the sink and I will no longer have the problem! Thanks again Tony for the idea!

I have stayed at the Fourwinds over many years, but have not been back since the renovation. I was overwhelmed with the room, and what they have done with the whole resort. My two grandkids loved the indoor/outdoor pool. I really liked the way the pool was decorated and set up.

We were treated well by all the staff and particularly Joy from accounting who checked us in as the rest of the staff was quite busy at the time. She made sure that all was in order, and made us feel she was happy we were there! She took a few moments to let us know of all the amenities, and services available at the resort.

We ate 3 meals at the Windjammer, and all meals were prepared well. They brought out crayons and coloring books for the grandkids. This was really appreciated.

We are already talking about planning our next visit to the Fourwinds.

Thank you!

The hotel was beautiful. It was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed there last year and I am so glad to have spent the weekend there. I went with my parents and one other friend and it was a blast. The boat rentals were great, fast, and easy and we were out on the lake in no time. The pool was great and the deck area around it looked like it was just remodeled. We had a lake view and it was so pretty during the day. If I was back in the bloomington area, I would stay in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Lake View is a must!
