My wife and I spent three days and two nights camping at one of the campsites at Cardigan Lodge. From Boston it was a fairly simple 2.5 hour trip (I will echo other posters in saying use the directions from the site not GPS). We originally booked campsite number 3 but decided we didn't like the location after all; staff... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed at the AMC Cardigan Lodge this past weekend in July, having signed up for the Wee Wanderers program - geared toward families with children age 3-5. Our 5 year old had a wonderful time with all the activities and the other kids. Our trip leaders - naturalists Amanda and Mary Ann... More

AMC Cardigan Lodge was fantastic! It was clean, the staff was friendly and welcoming, the food was great. We hiked to the beaver pond with a guide and learned about plants and wildlife along the way. We can't wait to go back and explore the surrounding trails and spend more time learning with the naturalists at the Lodge. What a... More

This is not the lodging to choose if you want privacy and comfort. We stayed here with a group of friends at the end of May. We were on the third floor and it really is uncomfortably hot. They only provide a very small fan which does not do much. The rooms are small and crowded. No bedding or towels... More

Thanks to Pete, Tom, and Natalie for a wonderful weekend at Cardigan Lodge. The food was outstanding especially the French toast on Sunday morning. We felt very comfortable from the moment we stepped into the lodge. The location was excellent for hiking Mt. Cardigan and surrounding trails. Highly recommend staying and enjoying the area.

AMC CArdigan Lodge, at the trailhead of Cardigan Mountain, is a wonderful, warm, friendly place to stay. Multiple trails to the summit range in difficulty from very easy to pretty challenging. Nature path down near the lodge. Activities inside and out for kids of all ages. Even spend the night in your own tent in the campground, or in the... More

A wonderful weekend in New Hampshire! The staff at Cardigan Mountain Lodge are fantastic. Very helpful and accommodating. The food was delicious and the accommodations very clean. Many trails to explore! Strongly recommend this as a wonderful outdoors destination for singles, couples, groups or families.

We recently had the pleasure of a weekend stay at the lodge. Due to traffic, etc., we were on the road for 10 hrs. and did not arrive until 10 pm on Friday night. When we got to the lodge , we received a warm welcome by the staff, and were offered a delicious dinner to warm in the microwave!... More

We stayed on a Sunday night in March. There was only one other guest, so we pretty much had the lodge to ourselves. The fireplace was really nice to curl up in front of after Sunday's hike. The caretaker was friendly and helpful. Bunks were comfy, showers were hot. We used the kitchen to prepare our own food. It's all... More

I have been a member of AMC for a few years now and was looking for some fun activities to do with my 4 year old and we thought of giving this a try. We had a weekend trip at Cardigan Lodge which involved Wee Wanderers (AMC program catering to 3-5 year olds) in July of 2014. We were hoping... More
