This was my first stay at the cardigan lodge and we will absolutely return. The purpose of our trip was backcountry skiing, the trails are absolutely beautiful. The lodge itself is clean , cozy and comfortable. Staff was very kind and hospitable, the food they prepared was great. They served appetizers before a family style dinner. You can BYOB and... More

Yesterday, myself and 3 friends planned a day hike starting and ending in Cardigan Lodge with intentions of summiting two peaks and heading home to Maine early afternoon following the hike. However, severe freezing rain made leaving the hut down the hilly back roads we traveled to get to the lodge virtually impossible. To our delight, we found Cardigan Lodge... More

Went with a BSA group, expecting a small cabinesque lodge. This lodge was bright clean and roomy. The staff was knowledgeable friendly and accommodating! There are hiking trails, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, a sledding hill, ice skating on site and downhill skiing nearby. Also a very relaxing place to just decompress. Cannot wait to return!!

We had a wonderful trip last month, Tom, Natalie, Alicia and the rest of the team looked after us really well. The location is wonderful, so many walks are available from the lodge and the lodge itself is comfy, with wonderful food.

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

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...

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
