Fink Annual Fishing Group

Jerry F.

Our time at Fortune Bay was wonderful once again. The fishing was great, all the staff treated us very well, the staff at the front desk, all the bartenders especially Doug, and Byron's staff at the marina especially Cody, which made it very enjoyable for all. It was really nice to have all the rooms together on the 5th floor. We hope we can do that again with the 2 adjoining rooms. Byron's new cooking/ picnic shelter made our fish fry very nice. Thanks again to everyone.

2017 District Rotary Conference

Quad Cities Rotary

As our annual District 5580 Rotary Conference culminated this past weekend at Fortune Bay Resort Casino we reflect on the many folks who made a commitment to attend from all over our district. Rotary members from as far west as Williston, North Dakota and east to Nipigon, Ontario ventured to Lake Vermilion to enjoy speakers and the specialty native foods of Northeastern Minnesota. In addition, we recall speakers who gave inspirational talks about what Rotary could do in the future.

We are also grateful for all the businesses that kindly supported our effort to make this event special...


Weddings & Parties

Anniversary memories!


Hi Krystal!

Everything was great for the party! We had a really good time and it was great to not have to worry about food & clean up!

We all thought the food was excellent! The servers did a great job making sure the buffet was kept up along with picking up plates. Your suggestion of having the bar set up in the room worked great. I would definitely consider using your facility for another event!

I know I had a lot of questions for you while I was planning & I want to thank you for all your help & suggestions!

Thanks again for all your...


Great job!

I recently had my reception at Fortune Bay and I would highly recommend it! Krystal was great to work with—she was very responsive, flexible, helpful, and overall on top of things. We had the ceremony at a local island, and on top of all of the coordination with our reception, Krystal helped set up all of the boat transportation, shuttle service for guests from the hotel, and even chair rental for our ceremony. She gave great recommendations and really helped me a tremendous amount. She certainly made wedding planning much less stressful! During the set up of the reception, the other...


15th Annual Men's Intergenerational Event

Ryan, Rachel, Darlene, Chris and Byron:

The 15th Annual Men’s Intergenerational golf event was held at The Wilderness Golf Course at Fortune Bay this summer. John Moorhead and I once again want to thank all of you for enhancing the great experience for our participants. Clearly, the golf course, the club house facilities, the hotel, the casino and the marina are all first class, but even so they are greatly enhanced by the personnel at every one of those facilities who provide excellent customer service.

As you know this has become a charitable endeavor and this year our raffle...


Anniversary Party


Hi Krystal:

Our anniversary party was a huge success. The room looked beautiful. The rooms were great. Front desk staff went out of their way to accommodate us with last minute additions including 2 extra kids meals and an extra table.

Please let Chef Christian know the meal was spectacular. The steak was perfectly cooked and so tender we used butter knives to cut it. The champagne chicken melted in our mouths. The shrimp were meaty and delicious.

Thank you Krystal for being so thorough with the planning, giving me suggestions...


Anniversary Party

John & Ginger

It's been a week now since our Anniversary Party at Fortune Bay. We have now recouped and we would like to take a minute to thank you for all your help planning our event throughout the past year.

Since it was all planned via emails from Arizona, we would like to thank you for a job well done. We have received many, many compliments about the venue, food, and dance.

Everything far exceeded our expectations. The staff did a wonderful job and should be complimented too. Everyone was friendly, professional, and helpful. Thank you very much. Kudos to Fortune...
