We had a great time at Paradox lake. The house was nice with a fireplace, a nice kitchen, lots of seating and a big screened in porch that had a cool lounging bed and long table so everyone could fit.
The shower had hot water. The grounds were nice, the dock was new and the communal beach was very nice. The beach has a nice view of the long stretch of the lake. The dock and water right AT the house is fine to swim in but there's no sandy beach there - you have to take about a 3 minute walk to the sandy beach.
Helen was very nice. All in all a nice stay.
