Give it a try!!! Our weekend began with a pleasant greeting from the friendly front desk staff. Rachael promptly checked us in and we were off to the resort’s Marina for a two-hour fall foliage cruise. Court, our captain, was great. The cruise was absolutely fantastic! Court pointed out points of interest along the way and at one point we just sat back, listened to music and enjoyed the beautiful fall scenery. Upon returning to the resort we stopped in the Windjammer Grill. We were pleasantly greeted by “Rock” who made the perfect post-cruise refreshments.
Dinner at the TradeWinds Restaurant was superb. Our server, Melissa, was a delight and provided impeccable service. We enjoyed tasty appetizers, fantastic prime rib, flavorful lobster ravioli and a decadent chocolate dessert that topped off the evening’s meal. (Thank you chef).
Our room, a two-room suite, had a million-dollar plus view of the lake and marina. Everything about the suite was fist rate; from the comfy sitting room to the master suite.
Breakfast was quick and easy. A full breakfast buffet was set up and all went smooth. And thank you Melissa for promptly bringing tea and coffee.
Again, give the Fourwinds Resort & Marina a try and you will experience a wonderful getaway.

Room Tip: The two-room suite has it all; comfort, full kitchen, fireplace and a fantastic view of the lake and...

Had an excellent 2 day stay. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and our room had a beautiful view of Lake Monroe. Rented a party barge on Lake Monroe which was awesome!!
Enjoyed spending the evening on the beach and watched the moon come up.
This was our third stay at the resort.

Room Tip: Book a lakeside room. Beautiful view!

My husband & I recently spent our anniversary at the Four Winds Resort. We had 2 different rooms (because the 2nd room was a last minute decision and our original room wasn't available). We loved the King Lakeside room with the private balcony. What a view. We also enjoyed the patio lakeside room. We will definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Lakeside balcony rooms have a beautiful view of the water.

We were in Bloomington to visit IU with our son. We thought about staying at one of the chains but read the reviews about Fourwinds and wanted to give it a try. My husband and I love boating so we also planned on checking out boats in the marina. When we arrived at the resort, we were quite impressed with the lush grounds and meticulous landscaping. Both the outside and inside of the resort and marina are beautiful. We checked in and had a quick bite to eat at one of the restaurants on the property before heading to our room. The Wind Jammer had a good selection for us to choose from and all three of us were more than happy with our lunches. Service was spot on. We headed to our rooms and had fantastic views of the marina that did not disappoint! Our rooms were well-appointed and very tastefully decorated. Just a note - we were told (and it was obvious) that the whole property has recently been remodeled and you can really tell the thoughtfulness that went into this redo. The rooms are very inviting, yet modern feeling. Everything was immaculate and beyond our expectations. Even though we were only there for a few days, we appreciated the attention to detail from the staff and all the extra touches at the resort. Our boat rental was no different. The workers at the dock were knowledgable and even though we are seasoned boaters, we listened to their safety advice and were quite impressed with the information. Overall, we had a great experience at Fourwinds and hope that our son chooses IU so we can come back and visit...especially since we didn't get a chance to take a dip in the indoor/outdoor pool, which is gorgeous!

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms - ours were beautiful!

This past summer my family and I went on vacation, the plan was to stay at the Four Winds Resort for one night and then on to our destination. I had stayed there four years ago, It was ok but not somewhere I was excited about going back to, but I had been told that they had renovated the resort, so why not try one night. Again WOW, we got there and could not believe how beautiful this place was and the changes they had made. We got checked in to our room, Ok our suite it was great. Full kitchen, living room with a fireplace and flat screen above, great bedroom with a large bathroom. The view from the balcony overlooking the lake and marina was awesome! We took the kids and headed to the pool. The pool was nothing like before, it has stone all around and waterfalls, It was Great. After spending the day at the pool, we went back to the room to get ready for dinner. Trade Winds Restaurant, the service was really good and the food was ever better. At dinner the kids were talking about that the marina had boats for rent, could we please, please rent a boat the next day. I told them that we were checking out in the morning and would not have time, they were so disappointed. My wife and I talked about it, this is where our vacation plans changed. I made a call to see if I could cancel the plans for where we were headed, and I could. Then went to the front desk to see if by chance we could stay for the week, they were very accommodating and worked it out. I went back to tell the kids, they were so excited that we could stay.
That week we rented boats, laid on the beach and hung out at the pool. We had the best vacation ever! Great staff, Great Resort, Great job Four Winds! We will be back!

Room Tip: Lake side room with balcony, Awesome view.

The resort is great!! Has everything you need for a vacation all in one spot! The pool is gorgeous with a shaded section in the shallow end for small children. Food is great and you have a perfect view of the lake from the restaurant. All the lake front rooms have private balconies with a beautiful view. My group of friends and I have been meeting at Fourwinds for the past 3 years for a small reunion and everyone has a great time. My children love to visit, there is more than enough for them to do with the lake and pool, and of course the boat rentals. It is a perfect spot for families to vacation and friends to reunite!!

Room Tip: Lake front rooms are the best!
