The Layout

photo 1-1The main entrance to the lodge opens into a large main room.  Two walls are lined with large windows allowing plenty of daylight and a view to the towering trees surrounding the lodge, and at times, a serene winter wonderland.  Cozy up with a good book or simply relax in the living area seated around a large stone fireplace.  Tables are available toward the back of the room for dining, or setting up a puzzle or a game.

Moving past the living area, you will enter a large, well equipped kitchen, with most everything required for your food preparation needs.  True to the rustic nature of the lodge, the kitchen is not equipped with a dishwasher.

Paradise Trail Lodge-3The trade off is good old-fashioned team dishwashing and bonding time (unless you choose to bring in your own disposable dishware and cutlery.)  The kitchen is equipped with two refrigerators, two ranges (one electric, one gas), a microwave oven, and several small appliances.

Paradise Trail Lodge-29Sleeping quarters are located upstairs: two bedrooms and two dormitory/bunk rooms.  The first bedroom has two twin beds.  The second bedroom has a queen bed.  The bunkrooms each have a large number of bunks.  The lodge will accommodate groups up to 25 in number.

Two, recently updated, bathrooms are located off the main room downstairs.  Each bathroom has two toilets, two sinks, and showers (women’s two, men’s one.)
