Made the drive up to carter's mountain with our daughters and had a lovely time! The apples we picked were divine and it had a great view over the area. It was quite busy that saturday so I would arrive early. It was a nice way to spend time as a family!

For a classic and fun family day of apple picking, hay rides, greasy, cinnamon sugar rolled homemade apple donuts, and panoramic views of Charlottesville and the mountains beyond, head up Carter's Mountain in the fall.

great view over cville. fun to pick some apples or peaches. the shop is so-so. you might get some wicked stink bug swarms in the fall. central virginia is having a problem with those. but this is a nice place to spend an hour or two.

That was the worst experience with my children ever. Hoards of people, out of doughnut before 10am then when the 11am egg hunt finally started at almost half an hour late, the first 5 kids in got all the eggs. Sad and crying kids is not my idea of family fun. Same can be said of the last 4 times I have tried to do anything here. It is always over crowded and you spend your whole visit waiting in line. Sadly we will never go to Carter's mtn or Chiles again.
