It was a fun morning - pretty setting, delicious pastries and apple cider. The employees were warm and courteous. A great place for kids to see a working cider mill.

Visiting any apple orchard in Michigan is a classic autumn event and Yates should be on your radar as well. It's been in operation for decades and even though there isn't an actual orchard at the cider mill location it's a family favorite. It's simple and delicious.

A trip to Yates was ALWAYS an enjoyable experience when growing up. Now, it appears the popularity of place has grown too big for it's location. Parking space is pretty overwhelming on a busy weekend. You used to be able to tour the cider making processs. However, now one door leads you to sales counters and the other door is... More

If you are anywhere nearby, visiting Yates Cider Mill several times during the season. Nothing beats fresh cider and hot donuts....and they have some of the best.

If you are in town when the cider mill is open, stop by and get some doughnuts and cider because you have to do it. They have some other options like pies and drinks but never skip the doughnuts and cider if this is your first time (or hundredth time) Make sure that the bees stay away from you because... More

It would not be fall without a visit to Yates! It's a must do every year on my list! I am lucky to live within a bike ride away, so we do visit several times a season. The cider the smell of the donuts, the sound of the water wheel, to me, that's Fall!

Need I say more, crisp, warm, fresh, yum! How can you go wrong. Traffic in that area is a mess, but a great family afternoon stop.

You gotta like this place. They serve Ice Cream during the Summer months so its pretty much open twice as long. Be sure to take a walk down the Trail naxt to the Clinton River.

Great historical cider mill and nice path to walk through the woods and along the river. Cider and donuts have been a long time favorite in our family.
