This property is very nice! Beautifully maintained resort surrounded by an awesome Golf course. And right on Beautiful Lake Vermilion. The staff at the resort and casino very nice and helpful. We had reasonable luck in the casino, but having all the great amenities makes it a great getaway!

Our stay included a family wedding on one of the many islands on Lake Vermillion. Fortune Bay provided the rehearsal dinner and the wedding reception. We stayed two nights. The rooms were spacious and clean, the staff was friendly enough, and the food in the restaurant was tasty. We especially enjoyed the Tim Horton's inside the resort! We aren't gamblers...

This was a day that I had been looking forward to for a while. My mom recently remarried and I had her and her husband up for the night to treat them to what I thought would be a very nice upscale dinner.

Each time we're here, we thoroughly enjoy our visit. Everything from checking in, to the Players Club, the buffet, and the very comfy rooms are just superb. The setting is outstanding, overlooking beautiful Lake Vermilion. We enjoy the selection of both old and new slots as well as the convenience of the snack bar. And who doesn't love Tim Hortons?!...

Stayed the night before an eight day wilderness camping/fishing trip. Very professional staff (trainee struggled a bit on check-in process but eventually got it). Reasonable rates. Balcony on room provided an opportunity to enjoy north woods scenery and fresh air.

This place is great! The pool is small yet big enough for 20 people to swim comfortably. The Tim Hortons is not a full service but they still have great stuff.
