Do you want fresh apples? Fresh pumpkins? Fresh and local food? Then you found the right place! Carter Mountain is full of friendly people and a wide range of activities. I went for the apple picking and came home with one too many bags of freshly picked apples. There were also tractor rides, pumpkin patches, fresh drinks and food made... More

I live about 2 hours from Carter's Mtn but every year I do all I can to to the mountain and pick apples. Nothing beats the view of Blue Ridge Mtn, or the grape orchards and especially the apple donuts. If you get the opportunity to visit Carter's mountain, get in that long line and GET THOSE DONUTS. They are... More

Pick your own apples and peaches, or they will pick them for you! Hayrides in the fall. Apple donuts, apple pies, breads if they don't go too quickly!

It was a very home-y experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. The apples (red gala) are AMAZING! We got to pick our own apples and it was such a fun experience! AND THE VIEW...AMAZING! It is centrally located, too!

Went in August and nothing was really being picked. The views made the drive worth is. The donuts were fantastic. Would love to go back in the fall for apple season.

My college roommate had a girls weekend in Charlottesville and saw the sign for the Carter Mountain and made the trek up the mountain and were so excited that we had detoured! The view is amazing! You can see the Blue Ridge Mountains as well as the city of Charlottesville peaking through the lush green foliage. The peach slushies were... More

Stopped by for apples and spend quality time with the family. Once at the top, the view is outstanding. Great relaxing way to spend a Sunday evening. They offer wine tasting which was a added bonus. Highly recommend.

Great place! We didnt go apple picking because we went there after we toured Monticello. I did purchase apples and the mix for apple crisp, which is excellent! We also bought some apple butter and it is very good as well. Not too sweet. The best part for both of us, what is the winery part. The blackberry and peach... More

Time of the year for peaches and there were no disappointments. Large, juicy peaches and some apples were ready to pick or to buy in the shop. Lots of other items were available in the shop, along with the famous apple cider doughnuts and apple pies (made on site). Great time for family get-togethers! The view of Charlottesville and surroundings... More
