Carter Mountain Orchard Reviews
Just south of Charlottesville, the Carter Mountain Orchard is a smalk, but fun destination. For kids and adults. We went for the Easter egg hunt and although it was more of a scramble than a hunt, it ... more »
Wonderful apples and peaches. Great music over looking the Charlottesville area on Thursday evenings in the warm weather. AND wonderful freshly made ice cream and doughnuts. more »
I wish there were more for kids to do, and somewhere to sit when wine testing that had a roof over it, even an umbrella on the table would have been nice. The wine is excellent! I really liked their season specialties... The apple cider slushy is great! My favorite wine was the raspberry, had to buy a bottle of that! Fun and friendly staff too. If you're looking for a pumpkin patch for your little ones I wouldn't go here unless they add more activities for them.
Lots of good food, cider, and wine here. Love the cider donuts. You can't beat the view from atop the mountain, and if you love apples, this is the place to go for a huge variety that you can pick or buy already bagged. Peaches are another offering that is quite good. Right now it is winter and out of season but check their website and visit in season.
