This place is so cute and relaxing! No alarm clocks, no cell, nothing to do but enjoy the scenery and take in nature at it's best! Bottleneck is right along the creek, which made the cabin even more enjoyable. We hiked to the mine one day, and the resort pooch accompanied us most of the way. We usually stay in... More

We returned to this lovely place again this year, taking Lamark with our son and his family taking Moonlight cabin. They say you can't go home again, but you really can, in this picturesque setting. Located between the cleft of two high Sierra peaks, this former gold mining camp is set amide a bubbling Bishop Creek and quaking aspens. Moonlight... More

This is truly one of those special places in the world that will become an absolute favorite. We arrived and found the Cluff family, Ken, ShaleAnn and their boys, offering a warm welcome! It is unusual in this day and age to find family run resorts of this class. We enjoyed lunch out on the deck, a walk by the... More

e love Cardinal Village! It's like stepping back in time. Not too many places like that left in California. Historic cabins left from the gold mining era. Horseback riding. Great hiking and fishing. Home cooked food. The general store decorated with everything from Brown trout to Mule deer, bob cats to mountain lions. It's a great place to take the... More

Our family loves coming up to Cardinal Village every year. The Resort is peaceful and the staff very friendly. We love to get up early for fishing or a hike, then come back to the café for a great home-style cooked breakfast! We love hiking up to the old mine; and, when the kids were younger they were able to... More

An exceptional place to get away and relax! My family and I love to get away in the Sierras for relaxation and time in nature's beauty. Cardinal Village offers comfortable lodging, delicious home-style food (their old fashion milk shakes are delectable and reminiscent of the good ole days), a friendly and helpful staff (the owners, Ken and Shale Ann, are...

For families like ours that love the outdoors and getting away from city life, CVR is the perfect place! A stunning setting with its personable hosts and convenient amenities--we don't find it lacking in anything. Helpful fishing and hiking/backpacking information is available from the friendly workers in the General Store, and fantastic food in the cafe--gotta try the buckwheat pancakes!... More

What a great resort high in the Sierra Nevada mountains! I spent a good amount time here in the summer and could not have asked for a better location or better lodging. There are many things to do in the surrounding area so you will never have a dull moment. After a long hike, what could be better than to... More

My family has been coming here for many generations. It started out with my Great Grandpa when there was the original owner, Nadine, and then Hal and Barbara and now Ken and Shale Ann. He then brought my Grandparents, who then brought my parents and then my sister and myself. I am now 41 and I am still going every... More

If your desire is to create family memories and a legacy that will last a lifetime, Cardinal Village is the place for you…I stumbled onto this delightful place in the late 80s and we’ve been vacationing there ever since - many years include a grandfather/ father/ son trip in the spring or early summer, and a family trip in the...
