We really like this place. Clean, quiet, comfortable. Nice location and view. Have previously written a review ( Sept. 3, 2008 ) but perhaps an update is in order. Wanted to check the latest Trip Advisor reviews as it has been a couple of years since we have visited this facility. We are planning a trip, and our review is... More

We stayed at this hotel for a 4 day, 3 night snowmobile trip in the Paradise area. They were very accommodating and friendly. The continental breakfast is fulfilling. Coffee, lemon water, hot chocolate, and tea are available 24/7. The staff will talk with you about the trails, etc., while you dine or sit by the fire place. We took our... More

She also gave us a great suggestion for dinner. Quiet room, great breakfast, enjoyable stay. The only downside was the young man at the desk in the morning. He... More

They are sled friendly, the hotel is clean and very accommodating for all of the gear we have to bring. We are now thinking we want to come back in the summer for ATV trails. Great... More
