We stopped by on a slow Sunday afternoon in July. It was very hot and humid and so not a lot was going on. However, this place is very interesting. We'd like to visit during one of their festival weekends. Lots of great seeds and...More

We happened to notice the sign off interstate and thought "why not". I'm so glad we did. We enjoyed 3 fun hours looking all around this place. We were impressed with the farm to table cafe, and were surprised when we asked for the bill,...More

I bit tricky to find, but well worth the drive. Situated in a beautiful valley, this place has fields, pastures, and greenhouses to envy. The little Pioneer Village is interesting, but the gem is the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed store. Seeds, garden tools, quilts, seeds,...More

they have many recreated buildings with names from the Laura books, lots of gardens, flowers and heritage seeds for sale. Free vegetable lunch on certain days, call to find out which day. Wonderful cinnamon rolls in the bake shop.

Great place to step back in time. It’s had been a few years since I last visited this wonderful place. You might wonder if you are on the right road but after crossing several low water bridges you will realize you made the right turn....More

Thank you, TripAdvisor. We needed a break from the road and the Bakersville Pioneer Village was just the right thing. Heartwarming.

Restaurant serves one meal, take it or leave, so it’s great for an adventurous pallet and a disaster for the picky eater. You pay by donation, recommended donation $5-10. Wonderful friendly staff, open kitchen so you can see the food prepared. Much is locally sourced...More

Visited on this festival day. Good music all day. Not many crafts or food for the crowd. Lines sent us away. Lots of kids but not much for them except to look through the fence at and we didnt get to look or purchase seeds....More

I'm not sure if the village is open all the time or not. I was there for a festival. I do know they are always closed on Saturday. There was no fee when I went for the festival. I'm sure their website has more details
