The cider donuts are flat out amazing. You will not find one like it anywhere else. It's a must stop place if you're passing through. The free samples are a hit and I could plant myself under the free sample of cider all day it's that good. They have a great collection of Vermont made items and you definitely have... More

Went to explore and see what they had. Large selection of items and many tasting opportunities. Prices were high but In line with other tourist attractions. Disappointed with the donuts they were small and too plain and soft . Nice place to visit enjoyed tasting all their products.

Sorry you weren't thrilled with the donuts, they can't be everyone's favorite! Do you have any suggestions for improvements that would take your 3-star rating to a 5? More

Visited with three teenage boys over the weekend. While they were disappointed that there were no French fries, they did enjoy the macaroni and cheese. I ordered a wrap, which was very good. We also enjoyed apple cider. The restaurant has a nostalgic atmosphere that epitomizes what out of staters think represents Vermont. The hard cider sample was very good... More

This store smells amazing. Right when you walk in, you are encouraged to sample a variety of jams (delicious jams that is). Some days they are also running the cider press, but even if they aren't, you can still sample some (again delicious!). The store has a wide variety of interesting foods and items as well. Try the apple cider... More

We really enjoyed the mill, and shopping for all the products! The doughnuts were awesome! I wish we had allowed more time here. It is definitely a destination worth exploring, especially if you are a foodie like I am.

We visit the area every year and always make a point to stop by, this time we brought friends and they enjoyed it as well. The cold cider and cider slushies, oh and cider donuts, are awesome, we also try different maple items - jelly beans, cotton candy, etc and many cider items, the jellies are amazing.

I knew it is not apple season yet but had a faint hope I would see production. Had to settle for a video playing and looking into the facility to see ideal equipment. I would love to come back in September or even October to see the facility in full swing. We did how ever get to pour ourselves a... More

We always suggest calling ahead if it's cider pressing you wish to view! Right now we are not pressing as often as we do during the fall season. Regardless, we are glad you enjoyed the cider! More

I'm not sure I would travel too far for this. It is as most say, not a factory tour, rather an opportunity to look into what may be their factory in the apples picking season. It is informative, reading how cider is made. The cider sample is truly delicious. Tthey have a sizable shop, selling made in Vermont items and... More

Cold Hollow gained fame for the excellent cider they produce; if you are in the neighborhood, they are worth a visit, but don’t go too much out of your way. The site offers a good explanation of how cider is produced and free all-you-can drink tasting. The cider was worth the visit, it is really as good as they say.... More
