Northland Paradise Lodge - The Name Says It All!

Located within a 1/2 Kilometer (1/4 Mile) of downtown Temagami and on the shores of picturesque Cassels-Rabbit Lakes is Northland Paradise Lodge. Directly in front of the lodge is the White Bear Old Growth Forest, a 2,000 acre (800 hectare) ancient ecosystem of giant red and white pines (up to 5 feet or 1.5 m in diameter) and at least twenty five different varieties of rare northern orchids. The lodge is accented in cedar and knotty pine while our eight comfortable units have electric heat, town water, three piece showers and full cooking facilities. All linen and cooking utensils are supplied. Our dining room seats 18 hungry guests comfortably.

Browse through our gift shop for souvenir shirts, hats, tackle and tanned wild fur. Free boat launching and mooring is available for guests. Use the lodge as a starting point to explore over 50 Kilometers (30 Miles) of pristine, almost uninhabited wilderness of our lake system which is rich with walleye (pickerel), northern pike, smallmouth bass, lake trout and whitefish. Pack a lunch and swim at any of the sand beaches while listening to the cry of the loons.

If the loons in our bay are too vocal in the early morning hours, we suggest closing your windows.

Our rental canoes will take avid nature lovers through countless lakes, rivers and streams of varying difficulty to view and photograph some of the most breath-taking and unique scenery available in North America. Observe many forms of wildlife in their natural habitat including bear, moose, beaver, otter, pine marten, mink, fisher and lynx as well as bald eagles, loons, blue herons, peregrine falcons, osprey, ruffed grouse, pilleated woodpeckers, Canada Jays (Whiskey Jacks) and countless varieties of northern song birds including the very vocal but rare orange crested warbler.

Please visit our newest web page called Song Birds ... and More. I just posted it in May, 2019 and it is a work in progress so new bird photos will be added as I find and photo them. There are three other new web pages with pics and text .... the first two are all about wild native orchids and wild mushrooms while the other one is all about wedding & portrait photography. Foreign guests that wish to visit the lodge can find additional tips about entering Canada, what they can & cannot bring into the country and information on local services that will assit them with their travel plans on the useful links) page.

I try to update the website at least once a week ... sometimes daily.

The town of Temagami is located on Highway 11 approximately 100 km (60 miles) north of North Bay Ontario or 70 km (40 miles) south of New Liskeard. Northland Paradise Lodge can easily be found "just behind the train station" in the middle of town. Turn east at the south end of the beautiful stone Ontario Northland Railroad (ONR) train station onto O'Connor Drive, proceed for 50 m (50 yards) and turn left (north) onto Stevens Road. Follow it for 1/2 km (1/4 mile) and we're on the right side at the second bend in the road. As you're driving down Stevens Road, look past the billboard at the end of the driveway and you'll see the bright orange roof of the lodge.

Although our pet lab/husky, Buddy, has passed on, we still encourage guests to bring their pet(s) along as part of their family vacation instead of sending them off to "puppy jail" for a week or more.
