“Year-round fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Carter's Mountain is packed on fall weekends, when they offer apple picking, a pumpkin patch, hayrides, and more. But this hilltop location offers beautiful views of the area year-round, as well as summer peaches, yummy doughnuts, and more.

“Great Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Some of the best views you will find in the area. Can get crowded during prime season, but get there early enough and you will be fine. Their donuts are awesome too!

“Fun for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

You must go in the fall. You can pick apples, eat apple doughnuts, take a ride through the trees, look out on the city of Charlottesville. Virginia is beautiful in this time of the year, and this is a wonderful time to see it. It gets windy up at the top, so bring a sweater and wear sturdy footwear- you are on a farm!
