Paradise Shores Cabins
On Whitefish Bay of Lake Superior
Paradise Shores Cabins is a 12 cabin resort on the shores of Whitefish Bay of Lake Superior. The resort is located 1000' from downtown Paradise, just north of the blinking light. The drive is lined with log cabins on each side leading down to a bluff that overlooks Lake Superior. The foothills or mountains of Canada, 25 miles distant, can be seen across the waters of Whitefish Bay. The shipping lanes of Whitefish Bay fall within the deeper waters of Canada. Distant ore boat traffic can be seen from the resort. Occasionally local commercial fishermen can be observed tending to their gill nets off shore. You should know when you request “Whitefish” at a local restaurant, it is fresh. Our eastern exposure across the bay provides you with unparalleled sunrises to enjoy with your morning coffee. Everyone seems to comment how close the stars appear at night and a full moon across the bay brings out the cameras.
Each cabin has its own picnic table, fire pit, and charcoal-burning grill. You provide your own charcoal and starter fluid. We provide bonfire wood for sale at the resort. For outside summer activities we have a badminton/volleyball court, a tether ball, and basketball net. Sawmill Creek is across the street from the resort with a flowing stream, grills, tables, and a short nature walk.
The Tahquamenon River empties into Lake Superior 3 miles south of Paradise. This is a Walleye, Pike, and Musky River. An interesting river, it has virtually no current. The musky pictured below was caught in the Tahquamenon River below the Lower Falls. A canoe trip from the Lower Falls to the River mouth is 17 miles. Allow for a minimum of 6 hours on the River. A private vender is currently providing canoe rentals and a spotting service for area inland lakes as well as the Tahquamenon River.
Paradise and the Tahquamenon Falls Area are most noted as a beautiful natural area. Commercial attractions to compare with any area. . . Yes. . . But miles of hiking trails for those wishing to work up a sweat. If you're not a trail person, there are endless miles of lovely Lake Superior shoreline for you to explore. And if you are into lighthouses, we have 3 within 50 miles of the Resort.
PARADISE IS A TRUE RESORT AREA.
We eagerly look forward to Spring. Coast Guard cutters make their presence known on the bay’s ice field in late March and the Great Lakes ore boat season starts with the opening of the Soo Locks. The Visitors Center at the locks offers an observation deck for viewing of the large boats (up to 1000’ long) passing through. You are close enough to see the faces of the crews. Agate hunters (rocks) anticipate the withdrawal of the shoreline ice to find the first treasures of the spring. Anglers come to town with their boats preparing for fishing on the Tahquamenon River or one of our inland lakes.
Summer, as it is everywhere, is prime time for family vacations. We are in the “Bulls Eye“ of so many attractions with our central location. Whether is a day-trip out of the resort or simply laying on our beach, this is where you want to be. It is not uncommon for a family to book for just a short visit only to find they wish they had booked a longer reservation. Weekly reservations are in big demand.
All cabins come with fully furnished kitchens with full size refrigerators and propane gas ranges. There are microwaves, automatic coffee pots, and toasters. We provide a generous amount of cookware, dishes, etc. so all you need to bring are your groceries.
All beds are set up with quality linens and blankets, however, towels are not provided. Please bring your own beach towels, bath towels, and kitchen towels along for your stay.
Cabins are not serviced during your stay. All Cabins are winterized and have furnaces for our cold weather guests and the seasonable cool evening hours. All cabins are carpeted and have comfortable living room furniture. Bathrooms have fiberglass showers with glass doors.
