A Slice of History

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.

I went there with my husband this autumn. It's really a beautiful place you must to go, but you should go in early autumn, then you can get some apples by your self. And the cider here was wonderful!!!

The donuts and cider draw us in. A trip down the abandoned railroad grade finishes the afternoon. Good luck getting the kids back in the car.

This is a nice location to take the family but watch out it gets VERY busy during the peak season. During the peak season you could not get me there if you paid me. The lines are VERY long. I try to go very early morning on the weekend since it is just around the corner when we go. The... More

There is absolutely nothing better than going to Yates Cider Mill in the fall! The cider is delicious and the warm doughnuts are well worth the wait in line. I've also purchased their carmel apples, pies, pumpkin butter, and their bags of fresh honeycrisp apples. Everything is delicious! Add great treats to beautiful surroundings with a walking path and farm... More
