A great family stop over. Good cider, always a food purveyor, pizza, fresh local oysters, etc. Farm tour, playground for the kids, beautiful Chimacum Valley view on an old Dairy Farm. Definitely worth the visit. And music most weekends.

We found the ciders in our flight to range from being lacking in flavor (the apple and pear varieties) to being overpowering (the currant). We did enjoy the chevre goat cheese they sold. The location and the people who work there are pleasant enough. It was a nice diversion on our way from the Olympic Peninsula to the Kingston ferry.

A great and fun place to go on both a sunny day or a rainy day as you are sheltered from rain and still able to get cider and food. Perfect for the kids since they have a very large field to play in while you can still watch them. They will sometimes on weekends have live entertainment under cover... More

Beautiful setting, great food and wonderful cider. Hama Hama oysters on Sundays and Dented Buoy Pizza are both delicious. Relax on adirondacks overlooking the farm or play Bocce, Corn Hole or any of the other games they have available. Everyone is so nice and knowledgeable. Tours are also available.

From the dry hopped, to the black currant, to the ginger, to all the hand crafted cocktails of signature ciders, brandy wine and more, every sip from Finnriver is guaranteed to please. Their taphouse in Chimacum is a blast featuring live music on the weekends....definitely sum the best cider on the peninsula!! Thanks everyone! Best, ~S

The historic location, great scenery, and a high quality product combine. Make this a must do when on the Olympic Peninsula. Much care was taken to preserve the history of the farm. Ciders are outstanding! Great family destination.

It was interesting to hear about the organic farming practices during the free orchard tour. They have a pleasant covered dining/lounging area. Kids and animals seem welcome.

Cider is exploding in popularity and FinnRiver is a leader but if you haven't tried cider in a while or are used to the sweet fizzy style popular years ago then be prepared when you go to FinnRiver for a tasting. These are finely crafted artisan ciders with delicate balanced flavours and those flavours can be pretty creative (ie. Lavender... More
