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

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

We had a great family weekend over 4th of July at the Lodge. We brought 2 kids, 3 and 6. The food was delicious, staff was great, and we loved the naturalists - Rick and Katie. We took a hike, did the kids activities and caught frogs in the pond. Kids already want to come back. Fun to meet other... More

We just- and I mean just as in I'm looking at our suitcases- got back from two nights at AMC's Cardigan Lodge and it was spectacular. We have 3 boys- 5,7 and 9- and all of us were in heaven. The setting is perfect, with an incredible selection of trails from the door. They are remarkably varied in length, difficulty... More

We spent four days and three nights at the AMC Cardigan Lodge with friends, including a combined 4 children (ages 6-11). Our hope was to find a respite that included great hikes, good food, and a beautiful setting. We found all that and more! The crew at Cardigan was warm and generous--providing a relaxed and convivial setting for adults and... More

Went there for the Wee Wanderers program they have - geared towards families with 3-5 year olds. The whole family had a great time and learned a bunch in the process. The food was great, staff well-prepared and the accommodations great for a lodge experience.

My family (three kids under 12) just spent our second weekend camping at Cardigan along with another family. We pitched our tent in one of the campsites and let the Cardigan staff make all our food. Delicious breakfasts and dinners--with vegan, veggie, gluten free and other preferences honored--plus a trail lunch available (sandwiches, fruit, cookies). The AMC staff also includes... More

We spent a weekend at Cardigan Lodge with our FRUA group - parents and kids. It was great. Lots of choices of things to do. Just enough freedom for kids. Meals were perfect and we really appreciated the "buffet" set up for us to pack our own lunches! Staff were very friendly and well informed.
