Paradise Resort near Bemidji Minnesota is located in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest on the shores of one of the legendary lakes the state is famous for. Known as a fine example of Bemidji resorts, they don’t call it “Paradise” Resort for nothing! This gem contains the spirit of nature, making it accessible with comfort and ease.

Our Bemidji Resort graces the sandy shores of Moose Lake with immaculate, comfortable accommodations. Individual cabins, up to 4 bedrooms, are designed to bathe the senses with the gentle sounds of sparkling waters lapping the shoreline, loons calling across the water, gentle breezes rustling the surrounding green environment arrayed beneath brilliant blue skies where eagles soar.

Your private, fully equipped cabin awaits your arrival, mere steps from your swimming beach and personal boat dock. Fish seem eager to be caught and to land in your frying pan. Wild and beautiful trails expect your footsteps, canoe paddles shape themselves to your hands.

Nearby historical sites, such as the birthplace of the mighty Mississippi in Itasca State Park, call for further exploration. Golf courses, casino action and quirky shopping can be found within a 20 minute drive. Even better, the hosts of your Minnesota vacation at Paradise Resort are most accommodating and knowledgeable and can help you achieve nearly anything you desire as you experience a true “North Woods” adventure!
