I was told how great Fortune Bay was and decided to visit with All Road Tours. We arrived, we were promptly given our room keys and headed off to our room. The room was clean and roomy. We enjoyed playing the games on both levels. We only made it to the pool for a quick view, but the area was...

This is the second time we have visited Fortune Bay. We have been fortunate enough to get the same room - a Suite that includes a microwave and fridge, with a fireplace. It looks out toward Lake Vermillion.

Went for an overnight stay, great service at check in. Relaxing walk along the water and when we were finished at the casino it was nice to be in the pool and hot tub after ten when it was adults only. The meal at supper was well worth it and the service all round was good.

We had a wonderful time at the "Bay". We arrived early on a Friday in October, after a wonderful drive up US Highway 53. We were hoping to see more tree color changing, but it was a little late in the season. Check in was easy and very friendly service. Our room was clean and orderly with a balcony and...

Almost in the middle of nowhere, there is this resort with great rooms, great golf, a nice little casino, a marina to get you on the lake with whatever you need, an indoor pool, and restaurants that serve wonderful food. What more could you want? Oh, how about a staff that is absolutely outstanding - friendly beyond the definition of...

The property was easy to find, though it was not easy to find handicapped parking. I think that the elderly casino customers use the handicapped parking in front of the hotel lobby, so I had to drop my mother off and then find parking a bit of a walk away, but the weather was fine, so I didn't mind a...

We went here for the casino, but the resort property looked beautiful. There would be a number of great things available to resort guests and or owners. As indicated we went to gamble. They do not have any table games other than blackjack. There are a lot of small denomination slot machines if that is of interest. If you're looking...

High quality rooms with comfortable ambiance. Beds are comfy. Book your room in the new wing and enjoy the views from your balcony. The stay and play rates are great! If you go right after Labor Day nothing is crowded so that's a bonus. Eat at the golf club restaurant for an amazing supper and cocktails.

We stayed here last winter for a hockey tournament one night. We got a little bigger room that fit our family of five fine for one night. Pool area sufficed. No complimentary breakfast.
