We go here annually to get apples. What a wonderful place for eclectic items and gifts. Just look at these “scare crows” in the parking lot. And their apples are always fresh. They make apple cider onsite!

Great tourist shop in the city of Bat Cave! Beautiful scenery in the mountains! Friendly cashier and oddness of different souvenirs and old time toys and gifts! Great stop on Blue Ridge Mt. Parkway!

This is a fun little shop to visit as you head into Chimney Rock. Lots of little gifts and knick knacks and jams. But the highlight is the real, old fashioned Cider Mill. They are happy to give you a tour and let you taste...More
