Our Labor Day weekend was just that refreshing and relaxing. The restaurant breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent along the service. The facilities were generous along with an awesome firework show.

I stayed at Four Winds in August for the midweek staycation. We had a housekeeping issue in our room. The General Manager Tony Suttile quickly responded and took care of our problem. We stayed in a lake view suite that had amazing views of Lake Monroe. We had dinner at the Wind Jammer, and the food was amazing. The staff...

We rented a pontoon boat with friends. The staff was very helpful. They seemed to have a huge fleet of boats, but not sure that ours was in the best condition. It was sitting lower in the water than usual, possibly because of water in the pontoons. It was a busy holiday weekend, and we were glad to be able...

Stayed at Four Winds in July for a mid week vacation on Lake Monroe. The check in process was quick and easy. Our rooms were a good size, but were dated. Bed was comfortable, patio was nice. We had a nice view of the lake and the marina from our room. The most concerning thing during our stay (we had...

My sister-in-law and I took advantage of the staycation for a quiet mid week getaway. We had Room 347 which was an end unit on the third floor lakeside. It was perfect and a relaxing and quiet end of the building. Even though the elevator was out of order using the steps wasn't an issue (other than my over-packed suitcase...totally...

Upon arrival at the Inn on a Sunday, we were told the elevator was out of order but a repairman would be there on Sunday...we stayed through Wednesday, no repairman was ever there working on the elevator.

We rented a pontoon at the marina and spent a great afternoon on Lake Monroe. The pontoon was clean and equipped with everything we needed. Having used old boat ladders before, we were happy to see a new four rung ladder. This made getting in and out of the boat very easy. Everyone at the marina was help. We had...

Just wrapped up a continuing educational session that we coordinated through the Fourwinds. It spanned two days and everything ran very smooth from start to finish. The pre-event planning, physical set up of the meeting room, AV needs, catering banquet service, acoustics, overnight accommodations, amenities and reception were excellent. Plus, the Fourwinds is a great value compared with some other...

Very good trip to Fourwinds! Cierra and Robert went out of their way to help me secure a short boat rental after the rain passed. My family very much appreciated both their easiness to work with and the experience! Beach was well maintenance and a nice area to relax at night. No doubt we will return.
