Modern facilities

This activity or structure is ADA accessible.

This renovated, historic, two-story, stone home is available for rental year-round. The stone was covered with stucco and scribed to look like brick, a common practice when the home was built.

Originally constructed during the mid-1800s as an ironmaster’s home, it has:

  • Modern eat-in kitchen
  • Two bathrooms
  • Four bedrooms
  • Central heat

The home has spacious porches, yard areas, and sits atop a hill overlooking Paradise Furnace. The lodge is accessible for people with disabilities.

Alcoholic beverages are permitted in this overnight facility and associated curtilage only. Alcohol possession and consumption is restricted to the holder of the reservation permit and invited guests age 21 and older. Responsible and legal alcohol consumption is required, and violations are grounds for removal from the state park without refund.

Note that alcohol possession and consumption in all other overnight facilities and all other areas of state parks is prohibited.
