The Lodge at Crandall Park

A year-round rental facility overlooking Powell Pond

Address: 124 Cider Mill Road

Take the right hand turn (after Crandall Park and before the highway underpass) and follow the road past the Parks & Facilities Garage into the Crandall 2 parking lot.

The driveway for the Lodge is at the far end of the lot. Available to residents, non-residents, businesses, etc. in groups of 100 or less for special events such as weddings, showers, picnics, parties, or meetings. The building contains tables & chairs, a warming oven, microwave, and double door fridge. Built in 1991, it is located in the middle of a 300+ acre town park. Nestled on a wooded hilltop overlooking a quiet pond, its singular design blends with the rustic surroundings to create a warm and serene atmosphere. A covered deck on two sides adds to the down home feeling, while inside a large fieldstone fireplace, a cathedral ceiling, and cedar siding complete the picture. The Lodge is heated for year round use, and is available weekdays, weeknights, or weekends. Call the Recreation Department office for available dates & more information; phone: (860) 871-3610.
