It is still an amazing Indian summer in Michigan but autumn coming and the trees will start to change color. It’s a magical time of year as the trees turn to shades of gold, red, and orange and the crisp evening air coaxes us out to enjoy the fire pit at night. Even with the cooler temperatures the days are still warm and it is one of the most enjoyable times of the year!
Join us this fall and delight in cozy accommodations and gorgeous fall foliage. Here are our 5 favorite ways to celebrate fall.
Go on a Wine Tour
Truly experience the best wines of Southwest Michigan at Fenn Valley Vineyards. Grape growing in Michigan is unique due to Lake Michigan’s effect on the climate of the area. See for yourself with a tour where you’ll learn just how this award-winning wine is made. We have tickets for you to purchase or you can purchase directly from the winery.
Enjoy a Horse Drawn Carriage Ride
Nothing sparks romance in the fall quite like a magical horse drawn carriage ride on property. Take in the Castle grounds from a new perspective as you ride around 65 acres of golden beauty now through October on Friday evenings.
Savor the Tastes of Fall
Seasonal foods are plentiful in Michigan during the fall. Wake up to the smell of freshly made pumpkin pancakes, sample Castle in the Country Raw Honey (included in our Fall Favorites Package!), munch on crisp apples straight from the orchard, indulge in a delectable pie flight and fruit wines from Crane Orchard, and sip on Michigan’s award winning wines.
Also make sure to ask your innkeepers about the best farmers markets in the area. Fresh fall produce is simply divine.
Embark on a Color Tour
Take a tour of the gorgeous fall foliage our beautiful area has to offer. Set aside some time for a tour and take your time taking in the views, soaking up the autumn sun, and taking photos. Make memories in autumnal paradise. Ask your innkeepers about the best fall color viewing in the area.
Go Picking in the Orchards
Go pickin’ in Michigan this fall at some of the most beautiful orchards you’ll ever find! Crane Orchards is one of our favorites for peach picking, apple picking, hay rides, and a corn maze! For more festive fun, visit Overhiser Orchards for pumpkin and apple picking. You can’t go wrong with either one.
Cheers to fall!
