“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

Our company booked this facility and my wife and I really like it. Our room walks right out onto the lake, awesome! We would like to bring our children back during the summer. The staff in the restaurants were very helpful and the meals were outstanding.

Stayed December 2013, travelled on business

Our company party was held at the Fourwinds Resort & Marina. I was really impressed. I had heard of the Fourwinds but never expected it to be so nice. The rooms were fantastic. The food was exceptional. The view was beyond belief. I can't wait to experience the view in the summer. I will be back!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the marina side.

Thank you so much for the kind words and great review of the FourWinds. We certainly appreciated your company choosing us for their retreat.
We do share all reviews with the staff, great ones like yours or ones that had a problem in order to let our staff know when they are doing a great job or if anything needs to be corrected.
You are correct that in the summer the FourWinds has so much more going on, with our rental boats, nature trails, tennis, golf, beach and all water activities on beautiful Lake Monroe.
We look forward to your return and hope you and your family has safe travels.

I have always wanted to stay at the Fourwinds, but living in Bloomington it always seemed too extravagant. So I was really excited when our company decided to have our Holiday party there.
The rooms were beautiful, the food awesome and the service outstanding.
I could not have asked for a better experience. I will not wait for a Holiday excuse to return.
Thank you Forwinds management and staff.

Our company had their annual holiday celebration at the Fourwinds Resort this year and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was very welcoming, and helpful. The food was amazing, the chef made some great dishes that everyone enjoyed. We had a lakeside room and even in the winter the view was spectacular, and the room was comfortable and classy. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back during the summer to enjoy the lake.

Our company Holiday party was held at the Fourwinds this year & I couldn't have been more excited! The staff is stellar, the food is delicious, and the rooms are perfect! The heated indoor pool is great for kids and adults, alike.The Fourwinds may be a hub of activity in the summer when the marina is really hopping; but in my opinion, taking alittle mini winter vacation from home to stay here is the perfect remedy to anyone's winter-blues and/or holiday-stress! Our family will be planning another trip before this winter's out!
Casey S.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lake are obviously the prime picks!

Can't thanks the staff enough for a great time this past weekend. We arrived early before check in to watch the IU game and was greated by Rosemary. Im not one to remember names but she stood out to me. She made the best drinks in town and had great conversation. I was amazed that they let us check in early and put our things away before the game. We were greeted with a smile and it felt welcoming. The rooms was fantastic. We didn't expect to have such a great view of the water. Since we were traveling with a group we heard how nice the pool was from several co-worker and Rosemary confirmed that they don't use chlorine to clean the water, making it very nice to enjoy and relax during the winter. Our company filled most of the rooms sold that night but they still invited a band to entertain us. There is so much more we could add about this night. The food, drinks, staff and the best night of sleep I have had in a while. Best night out in Bloomington! I will be going back. (Randy S.)

Having just completed the best year in our companies 38 year history, wewere looking for the perfect location to reward our employees for their hard work and celebrate the reason for the season. Our comittee selected the Fourwinds. What an excellent choice they made! We were met by a warm reception from the General Manager Tony. The banquet room was set up to maximize both the rewards and the celebration.Chef Poor received a standing O for his culinary creativity. After the banquet we retired to the bar where a band . Last stop for the evening, our remodeled rooms provided delux accomodations with breathtaking views of the moon lit lake. The Fourwind exceeded our every need. We wil return.

Room Tip: Lakeside. South end if possible.
