I cannot recommend this place highly enough. My husband and I recently stayed there for a February weekend. We snowshoed the back 80 trail up to firescrew and my husband sprained his ankle. When we returned to the hut we were welcomed with a bag of ice, a glass of wine and although we arrived an hour and a half... More

Tom the manager is nice and funny the room was warm and clean and the food was just we needed after a day of hiking. You don't have to bring anything from home accept from warm cloth... Even shampoo can be found in the showers. The only thing that was bad was the noise at night.

Last weekend I attended an AMC hiking weekend on Cardigan Mountain, the lodge itself was modern, neat as a pin, eco friendly, warm and contained everything anyone could need to have a fine safe adventure in the woods. The staff was very helpful. The food was bountiful, and SO good! I hope to go back again soon!

Our family - six of us - spent Saturday night October 5, 2013 at Cardigan Lodge. We completed a double peak hike on Saturday and checked into the lodge late afternoon. When we arrived, the staff was just starting to cook dinner. I could see the upcoming menu on the white board as the pies went into the oven. The... More

We went overnight with a group of 5 teenage girls (for our daughter's birthday) and had a terrific time. Hikes were challenging enough, night walk exploration great for kids from the city, had fun building a fire, playing games, and eating family-style dinners. Felt like we spent a warm, relaxed, rejuvenating weekend at our own little house—albeit with like-minded strangers.

My nine-year-old son and I had out third straight year's stay at Cardigan. Good selection of reading materials, lots of pretty good food, and very courteous staff. He had lots of playmates and enjoyed the pond with float right out the lodge's front door. We heard owls hoo-hooting at night, saw moose tracks on a nine-mile day hike, and spent... More

We just spent two days/nights at the lodge with three other family friends (8 adults and 10 kids ages 6-13yrs) and had a great time! The staff was wonderful, food was great and plentiful and surrounding were beautiful! The one negative was that I thought the mattresses were too hard, but I am a "sensitive sleeper" according to my husband.... More

If you are looking for a fancy luxury resort, this is not the right place for you. If you are looking for a warm, comfortable, family friendly lodge (with meals included), look no further. We just returned from three nights at Cardigan with our 5 year old, and we had one of our best vacations ever. The lodge was very... More
