I just spent a wonderful fall weekend at Cardigan Lodge with some friends. The lodge was busy with many guests including us, an AMC-led youth group, and many folks from an AMC chapter in Rhode Island. Everyone was friendly, warm, and welcoming. Tom (Cardigan Manager), Natalie (Cardigan Assistant Manager), and the Cardigan crew provided excellent service. The place was very... More

This was our 7th annual visit with our grandsons aged 7 to 15. As always, we found the staff friendly and helpful, the lodge pleasant, the pond inviting especially to the younger boys and the opportunity to have quality time with the kids irresistible. The food is good and plentiful and the price is terrific. It is not easy to... More

The AMC Cardigan Lodge is a GREAT place to spend quality time with kids and Grandkids. We just returned from 2 nights (3 days) at Cardigan Lodge with our 3 granddaughters (ages 7, 9 & 11). There was no shortage of fun things for them (and us) to do including catching newts and frogs in the pond, eating blueberry pancakes,... More

Many thanks to Tom and his friendly, helpful staff for being there for any and all of our needs. They all worked so well with the caterers and other rental people. They also provided wonderful meals for... More

We just can back from an overnight here in a private room. The room has a queen bed and its own bathroom...big plus. It is a great way to experience hiking in the mountains since you drive up to the lodge. We brought our own pillows too. The hiking was challenging for me. My husband was fine, he's in great... More

Cardigan Lodge is easily accessible in less than four hours from most everywhere on the New England coast and offers adults two or three days of challenging but moderate hiking. One can climb Cardigan Mountain on successive days from both the east and the west, enjoy an excellent day on the trail mostly by oneself (save for an occasional curious... More

AMC lodges are the best kept secret for family vacations, including 1 parent families or grandparents with grandchildren. It is easy to find like-minded people in the lodge. The naturalists provided excellent programs all day long. They are guides on trips, provide expertise and fun at nature exploration and even do crafts, sing and play. The children can socialize with... More

A stay at Cardigan offers all the benefits of being in the mountains with the added advantage that you can sleep indoors and get great food and camaraderie. Tom and Natalie make sure that everyone feels at home, and you will. The room I stayed in was a little crowded for four grown men, and you should not expect a... More

Our expectations were more than exceeded on our recent hiking trek. The cleanliness and comfort of the lodge were excellent. Our lovely private room was cozy and the shared bath was clean and bright. But it was the staff at Cardigan Lodge that really warrant this good review! Rick, John and Alicia made this nice experience into a warm and... More

We went with another couple and both of us had private rooms, clean and comfortable. It was great fun. Cozy interesting rustic lodge at the base of a great hiking mountain. Definitely the best of outdoors and indoors.The staff were very friendly and helpful. One of our group was vegetarian and they made sure she had good options. Also close... More
