Were a bit disappointed by reality and the pictures on line. To be fair it was during the Corona Virus time and things are a bit different. The lodge room and restaurant were closed and food was served in to go boxes and you ate outside on picnic benches. Meals were good and service fine. Only beer and wine was available. Climbing up and down from the river to lodge was a challenge for my wife and I who are in our 70's. Very steep climb but the staff was very helpful. No lights after 10PM which was not a problem. No tv, radio , phone, etc. Was a nice quiet time and met many nice people. Got to catch up on reading, card playing and quiet time together. Cabins were basic but clean and well maintained.

My wife and I were in need of a vacation during these crazy times and I found this place. We went for seven days. We were informed by the staff that nobody in the 15 years that they had been there that anyone had stayed that long. It was one the best vacations we have ever taken. Our room was on the top floor of our building with a wonderful river view. The room was very clean. We were lucky enough to have the entire building to ourselves five of the seven nights. The food was served in containers for every meal and was wonderful. We never walked away from a meal hungry. The bell for every meal was promptly rung five minutes early and the food was hot and ready. The staff was absolutely great in every aspect. Bill, Heather, and Jay treated everyone like they wanted them there and were very appreciative of our stay. This is typically a place that people stay for a night or two max. But if you are looking to disconnect from the world? This is your place. No internet, TV, Wifi. My wife and I hiked four of the days totaling 31 miles. We did not break out a piece of technology until day five. And that was just to listen to music. The trails on the river can get you to some excellent destinations. Double waterfalls, and multiple creek pools that you can jump into. There is limited access to the river along the trail. But we found a spot 3.5 miles down river where we could go down and sit on the river. We have been to all inclusive places in Jamaica and Mexico seven times. They had nothing on this place! Becky was also wonderful helping to get the trip scheduled. I had multiple questions for her and she responded quickly. Everyone we talked to were surprised that we were going for seven days. But we would not have done it any different. I had my reservations about staying a place like this, and am so glad we did it. Relaxation is possible here! Thank you all associated with the lodge for making this an excellent trip and experience. We will definitely be going back.

My husband and I had heard great things about Paradise Lodge and decided that we’d pay the very hefty price to stay there one night. We were met on the dock and walked to our room. He told us that there were instructions on our bed and that the dinner bell rang at 7:00pm. He also gave us our sack lunches before leaving. Our room was not at all like the ones shown on their website. Instead it was a very small rustic room with a twin bed and a double bed. Very dark. Box springs on the beds were exposed and very sparsely decorated. Rather tacky! The bathroom was also very small and there was nowhere to put anything. A small shower stall with sticky non slip flowers stuck on the floor and a very cheap plastic shower curtain. Our lunch was a turkey and cheese sandwich an apple, a bag of Cheetos and a water. Pretty uneventful. We read everything in the room and found it was mostly the Covid do’s and don’ts. Not much about the property. So we went to the small window designated for service. After some time a girl approached and asked what we needed. No welcome to the property or any customer service at all. We felt like we’d interrupted her. We asked about trails and were told you can go up stream or down stream and that’s it. We left feeling unsure of where we could go on the property. The property is nice and right overlooking the river. But the grounds were rather overgrown with tall grass. You could see frisbee golf equipment but deep in the grass. We found the upstream trail and enjoyed a nice walk up river. There was a nice little brook that fed into deep pools of water. Nice for a dip on a hot day. I think the property could have provided a trail map with areas noted to look for. Would have been a nice service. We went back long before dinner. Very quiet and a nice spot to read a book, nap, etc. They have lots of outdoor seating but probably the most uncomfortable Adirondack chairs I’ve ever sat on. So hard to get comfortable outside. Dinner bell rang at 7pm. We went and picked up our to go boxes of dinner from the kitchen window and then sat at one of the many picnic tables. Two other couples were there too. All staff and workers on the property went inside. You could see them eating, playing cards and having a nice time. Meanwhile the paying customers were outside as the mosquitoes came out in full force. One couple got up and went back to their room and we went back to ours as well because the bugs were so intense. Only place to eat in the room was on our bed. Not too comfortable! The food was good though! Nice bbq chicken, rice pilaf, asparagus, interesting salad and dessert. We then sat in our room until bedtime as there was nowhere else to go. Breakfast bell rang at 8:00am and again picked up our boxes at the kitchen window. Food was good french toast, eggs, bacon and sausage. Bugs had retreated. We walked up river again and found a trail down to a small beach on the river. Nice to watch rafters go by. Returned to pack up and head to the dock to wait for our jet boat return. We couldn’t wait to leave! An employee walked us down and chatted for a bit. Never asked if we’d enjoyed our stay. When I checked out the same girl handled it. Not a single question of me was asked. Did we enjoy our stay? Nothing! What a rip off!!! Absolutely no service at all!! Even with Covid people can be pleasant and enjoy talking to each other. We felt like the employees were absolutely terrified of being around anyone else. If that’s the case they should not be open. Some rafters stopped by the property and the employees were rude to them too. We paid $400. For one night and it was a complete rip off!!

We took a jet boat ride to get to the lodge with our friends. We stayed in the solitude cabins and had an awesome stay! Beds were comfy, room was clean, bathroom was clean and looked new. Food is served family style "listen for the dinner bell" to ring (literally) and it was delicious. There were about 30 of us staying the night and we met some really interesting people. If you are looking for white glove service and someone to cater to your needs this is not the place. If you are looking for peace and quiet, a comfortable bed and beautiful view this place is for you. Had a full moon the night we stayed and saw a bear outside my window. Climbed an apple tree and knocked apples down to the deer waiting below. AWESOME!! No phone, no internet, no tv.

My friend and I had started a 4 day hike starting at Grave’s Creek to end in Agness. On our last night of camping, we quickly made camp just below Paradise Lodge, anxious to go get dinner and a cocktail with ice as we had hiked approx 10 miles in 85 degree weather with only filtered water. We could just taste real food and an ice cold drink as we hastily made our way up the fairly long gravel road to Paradise Lodge. It was going to be an oasis after a long, hot and difficult hike for us two gals who had been subsisting on tuna fish, bars, and the like. My friend, Rene, expressed her bit of hesitancy as she said the last time she had hiked in, they had refused to let her buy dinner or even a drink. I thought to myself that surely wouldn’t be the case. Why would a business that touts itself as a wilderness lodge that on their very own website, suggests that their guests arrive by boat, raft, or hiking in? So, on we went. I walked into the bar/restaurant area where there were only about 6 guests milling around. The waitress was cleaning tables and after getting her attention as she didn’t speak to me as I entered, I asked if my friend and I could buy dinner and a cocktail. She warmly told me appetizers would be out at 6 pm and dinner is at 8 pm. It was approximately 5:30 pm at this time. She called for the bartender and a man came out and asked if I was an overnight guest. I replied no but I would very much like to buy a drink and possibly some dinner as well. Without any expression or apology, he promptly told me we would not be allowed to buy food or drinks as we are not lodge guests. He didn’t smile, try to apologize, give any logical reasoning for this, or anything. I needed clarification as I was incredulous that we could not buy a cold drink at the very least. Again, he stoically and without any apology replied “no, it is our policy.” Quite literally on the verge of tears, after being so hungry for warm food and a cold beverage after the hot, strenuous hike only to be told that we could not buy anything here, was matched only by the cold, rude treatment by this man. Hikers, beware. Your business and money is not welcome here. Not unless you are going to spend the night. You will be treated with the most unwelcoming, rude and downright cold attitude that you may ever experience at any establishment in your entire life. That was our experience. Never in my life have I gone to a restaurant, bar, hotel bar, etc and been told in no uncertain terms that your money is no good here and we care so very little that we are not even going to say sorry, not even once. We did not linger around on the beautiful deck but instead mDe our way back to our camp where top ramen and water awaited us. What a disappointment you are, Paradise Lodge and staff. Apparently, they don’t care for your business and that is their loss as a result of their very poor business practices. While there are many good reviews from lodge “guests”, go check out the reviews from hikers who had very similar experiences. I would not ever stay here in the future now, as I most assuredly would have had it been a more pleasant experience. The owners need to change their practice and hire some staff that have people skills and can at the very least slap a fake smile on their faces and learn the word “sorry”. The next day, we went to Cougar Lane in Agness and had a fantastic experience!! Absolutely delicious food, amazing margaritas while sitting out on their deck chatting it up with the very friendly, and smiling staff! They even let my friend’s very well-behaved and very tired lab lay at her feet out in the deck while he enjoyed bites of brisket and the staff brought him out two bowls of water! Take note, Paradise Lodge, because that is service!
