Resort Testimonials


"We want to express to your and Wade our sincere gratitude for yet another perfect week at Paradise Resort. The deck, back landing, and stair improvements to LH1 are really nice. Your gift of a bottle of wine was very thoughtful and we are enjoying it this week with friends. There is no place else I would prefer to spend our anniversary.

You and Wade work so very hard not only to keep the resort looking in tip top shape, but also to be available and smiling ready to help guests whenever they need it. We are so impressed that you continually look to upgrade and add amenities to the resort. We look forward to the new sign to greet us next year!

I just love the calm and peacefulness of the area. The lake changes throughout the day and as night arrives, the sky fills with so many stars that we never see back home because of all the lights.

I never sleep better than when we are on vacation. It is so great to be outside much of the day and then fall into a very quiet cabin, hearing only the loons.

I will keep an eye on your reservation calendar for next July and we may book a different cabin the week before the one we've already booked. It's a long drive without Paul but the girls are getting to be better company and help in the car.

Very best wishes to Brittany, Steve, Scott, and Kim as they continue with work, school, new jobs, etc.

May the end of the summer finish well for you. We think of you often throughout the year and always look forward to our next stay.

Hugs to you and Wade."


Minnesota Cabin by Ellen Burns
"Each year for summer vacation, our family goes to Minnesota for 2 weeks. We do a lot of packing and getting ready for the long drive. The drive is about 9 hours long, but it is worth it.

The cabin is set back almost 6 miles in the woods. The resort has 13 cabins. Our cabin has 4 bedrooms and is covered in wood paneling. The windows have a great view of the lake. This cabin is special to me because we have stayed there for 7 years.

In our front yard we have a dock where we put our boat and go fishing off of. When I was 4 years old I caught my first fish off the dock. I feel very safe here because I am surrounded by lake and forest.

The lake is called Moose Lake, I don't know why it is called that because there are no moose there. Although, one time we were driving to our cabin when a black bear ran across the gravel road.

My 2 favorite thing to do there is go to the beach and go inner tubing. The sand is soft and warm. The sound of the water washing up on the shore is very relaxing.

The owners of the resort are very nice. You can get 4 different flavors of ice cream there. When one of the flavors is almost out they let me and my sister eat the rest of it.

At this resort I am always happy because I am with my family.

The past 4 years we have been there it has rained and a rainbow appears. When it reflects on the lake it looks very pretty. After it rains it smells very pretty.

30ft off the shore there is a giant yellow floating tube that connects to a floating trampoline. Whoever can run across it without falling off gets a free root beer.

Almost every night we have a campfire and roast marshmallows. The fire pit is in our backyard.

It is very relaxing in the morning because the sun pours through the windows and you can hear the birds and the water washing up on the shore."
