Beautiful setting and choice is goods. Lots for kids to experience and even learn. Fabulous staff, especially Sue, to enhance the experience. Fair prices and wide selection. Not easiest to find, but well worth the effort!

apple picking is easy and well marked. Cider donuts are the best around (just make sure they don't mix the plain, sugar and cinnamon together). Kids activities, hayrides, animals parking and traffic can be tough.

A train from the North Station to Lawrence or Andover and then a taxi or Uber to Smolak's. About a 5 mile ride from either train station.
