In the fall the mountains become vibrant with their red and yellow leaves, but it is also time for the 49th annual Apple Butter Festival.  On Columbus Day weekend every year the town fills with craft vendors, music, contests, food, a parade and kettles of apples being stirred. Once the apples cook down you add sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to complete the apple butter. It is jarred warm and sold right there at the festival.

Each season has its own delights, and you can always eat well, bathe in comfort, sleep, shop and play outdoors. To plan your stay, visit!
