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 comfortable, and the 2 naturalists, Kate and Kate, led family friendly adventures a few times a day, including a hike up Mt Cardigan, a trip to a beautiful waterfall, a pond study, and a nature walk. They were terrific leaders, knowledgeable about the area, and really fun. The manager, Tom, was away, but Natalie, the assistant manager, kept everything going beautifully. The croo, (Brenda, John, Owen, Ames, and Maddy), was friendly and very hospitable. There were coincidentally several families there at the same time with kids of similar ages, and we felt like we were at family camp. Kids under 12 stay free this summer, so it made our trip all the more affordable. Thanks to everyone for such a lovely time.
