Located on the Clark Fork River, Paradise is surrounded by the Lolo National Forest. Unlimited recreational opportunities include hunting and fishing, wildlife viewing and most outdoor sports. To the east, the National Bison Range offers panoramic views of spectacular scenery and wildlife.
Paradise was originally developed as a station for the Northern Pacific Railroad. It was a vital water supply before the trains continued to climb over the Bitterroot Range in Idaho.

Shortly after Martin Quinn discovered this secluded hot springs in the early 1880s, he built a residence, bathhouses and sleeping accommodations for guests. The springs were used mostly for rheumatism therapy and to cleanse the body of alcohol, tobacco and mine poisons. Martin became so popular in his new profession that he was referred to as “Dr. Quinn.” His wife Fannie was a gracious hostess with her fine linens, china and crystal, and together they made Quinn’s a great American example of safari-style luxury.
Today at Quinn’s Hot Springs you can enjoy that same luxury in a modern facility and share in the beauty of this rugged, charming and romantic piece of Paradise.
