Arrive early. There is plenty of parking but early arrival will put you in good stead. This wonderful scenic spot has much to offer but it is VERY busy during the fall apple season especially on weekends

This was our first stop on Day 1 of our visit to Charlottesville and we did not want to leave! The views are gorgeous! The apple cider donuts are delicious! The winery (Prince Michel) and cidery (Bold Rock) are great amenities at this orchard.

If you are lucky you might hear music!

This place sells apples everything, from ice cream to candied apples to pie alamode. It overlooks Charlottesvile and the mountains and the views are spectacular. The place is surrounded by orchards and there are views from either side of the large barn.
Great opportunities for picking apples and peaches. Fantastic views of Charlottesville’s from the deck. Haven’t tried the grill. Store has fresh picked produce from the orchard for those who don’t wish to pick. Other products available for sale. Grill available but haven’t eaten there.
I’ve visited Carter Mountain twice, but I have yet to pick fruit so I plan to go back! The apple cider donuts are a must try, the gift shop is cute and reasonably priced, the patio is relaxing, and the beverage selection is great!
