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...

My family can't get enough of Cardinal Village Resort. We've made it our yearly vacation destination. We've stayed in many different cabins and each one feels like home. The cabins are much more than bedrooms and bath. There's a kitchen (with sink, oven and refrigerator) and a cozy living area (some cabins have a gas fireplace) as well. We often... More

We have been going to Cardinal Village Resort for 23 years! We usually go in late Sept. to Early Oct. We have also been up in Aug. & once in June. Our experience has been excellent every time we have gone. Our children have grown up first with Hal & Barbara in charge, then with Ken & ShaleAnn and Sons.... More

I have been bringing my family and friends to Cardinal Village for the last 25 years. I have stayed in every cabin they have. Personally, I absolutely love the rustic feel of this resort. Each Cabin has a history, and most stem from the gold rush days. The resort is located in the high country and the views are breath... More

Stayed in Hungry Packer from June 20th thru the 24th 2013. Such a wonderful welcoming atmosphere nestled just below beautiful Cardinal Pinnacle. Cabin has unique charm and is nicely equipped with what you would need for a relaxing mountain vacation. The family that owns the resort are so helpful and make you feel at home, employees are very attentive, and... More

We have been going to Cardinal Village for years. The owners are so kind and helpful, and they work really hard to ensure everyone has a wonderful experience. The setting is spectacular - the resort is set deep in an aspen-filled canyon with Bishop Creek rushing through, and gorgeous views of the High Sierra all around. The cabins are rustic,... More

We stayed for 7 nights in August with our son and 2 grandchildren. We had Loch Leven and our son had the newly remodeled Moonlight, complete with a luscious, green meadow where we played croquet, hooted, hollared, ate smores and camp pies and watched birds. The key words are location, location, location. Set in a canyon amid a forest of... More

I stayed there July Sunday through Thursday in "Thunder" cabin. There were cobwebs in the dirty room. The room was ill equipped. For $$230 per night, they are cheating people with the poor accommodations offered. there was a fry pan but no spatula. Two mugs that looked like the came from the Good Will dumpster were provided in a room... More
