Move over Granny Smith, there are some new apples in town!

Warm apple pie, unique crafts, live music, and fresh produce are just a few of the offerings at our 14th annual Apple Festival!

Festivities will also include apple wine tasting, kid’s activities, and delicious restaurant favorites. An apple pie walk (similar to a cakewalk but better) will be held at 12:30 pm where visitors will purchase tickets and take a walk for a chance to take home a fresh-baked apple pie!

Bring your A-game because we will also be hosting our crowd favorite Pumpkin Roll at 2 pm. Participants can bring their own pumpkin or purchase one at the festival to decorate for a competitive roll down the hill in front of the Lodge. Second and third place participants will win gift certificates for the Restaurant and the fastest pumpkin will win the ultimate grand prize…a free night's stay at our historic Lodge!

Admission is free and this event is open to the public! How about them apples?
