Great place to stay in the winter. Nice rooms with great view, good breakfast, and a restaurant within walking distance. Also close to sights - Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point. This was our 2nd trip there and would definitely stay there again.

This property was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Room was large, comfortable with a double bed, couch, 2 stuffed chairs and 2 cushioned chairs. Microwave and fridge were unexpected pleasures. The breakfast has slipped some in choices, but still quite edible and included in the room fee. Have stayed previously- and look forward to returning. Close to Tahquamenon Falls and...

Great staff, clean rooms and the best place to stay in Paradise. The restaurant was fantastic too. All around great experience and we enjoyed the view from the rooms. We stayed during peak snow season.

This is the first time we stayed at this facility or with Magnuson hotels and we were very pleasantly surprised with this facility and with Magnuson in general. We will definitely stay at this property again and will stay at Magnuson Hotels also.

What a great property, location on the bay, and staff. Room was big and clean with a great view of Whitefish Bay. All this in a remote area of the U.P. Close to the Tahquamenon Falls parks. The falls are a must see. The maritime museum and lighthouse at White Fish Point are nearby and very interesting sitting on Lake...

The hotel had an AMAZING view from our room overlooking the bay. Bathroom was a good size. Beds were fairly comfortable. Not quite like home, but not bad. Everything was clean. Staff was very friendly. Hot tub, pool, and sauna were all very nice and relaxing. Our only complaint was there was no mini fridge, but that certainly wouldn't stop...

Get the lakeside view with a private balcony and bring your excellent included breakfast back to your room. I recommend second floor or above but first floor also is waterfront. If you don't ask for the lakeside view which is extra then be satisfied with a parking lot view. It was the water and breakfast that made this little family...

We stayed two nights as our base to your local attractions including Tqua Falls and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and Whitefish Point Lighthouse. Our room afforded a great view of Lake Superior. Facing due East, the sunrise greeted us each morning. One scuddy afternoon showed how the big lake can take on a dark character. The lobby is warm...
