Fall Fun in the Grand River Valley Wine Region

Here's why I love Fall in the Grand River Valley . . .

Apple Picking!

To me, there is nothing better than apple picking!

I love summer but I look forward to September when Westwind Farms, the apple orchard down the road, opens for apple picking season. There is just something special about walking through the rows of apple trees - I could fill a wagon every time we are there.

Corn Mazes!

Corn Mazes are a great way to get lost in the fun of Fall. One of the best corn mazes we have come across is less than 15 minutes from the B&B - Regal Vineyards.

A corn maze is like an escape room just on a bigger scale - walking through acres and acres of corn stalks with clues in hand to guide your way out.

Grape Picking!

Just like apple picking, I love grape picking.

My suggestion is to roll your window down on your way to the u-pick vineyard (Grabelski Vineyards or Covered Bridge Farms) - the aroma of the grapes is something you have to experience.


What says Fall more than a pumpkin? Nothing! I am not a big fan of pumpkin spice everything (sorry) but I do enjoy lots of pumpkins around the B&B. We always spend a lot of time at the pumpkin patch/farm because I have to pick out just the right pumpkins - size, shape, color, & stem.

There are many place near the B&B to pick pumpkins but our favorite spots are Rainbow Farms or Regal Vineyards.

Scenic drives or scenic walks

Are you a leaf peeper? Do you enjoy the colors of the season? Visit the Grand River Valley and take a drive through our country roads and take in the vivid colors of the trees. There are also many parks in the area where you can take a walk/hike and take in the colors.

Our favorite place to take a walk is Hogback Ridge Park in Madison.

Haunted Houses

I have to admit - I really don't like haunted houses. I never have! That being said, we have a great haunted winery in our area, Regal Vineyards. The century old winery was abandoned after tragedies happened with the family and is now reopened to the public. Madison is also home to the Madison Seminary, one of Ohio's most haunted places. The Madison Seminary holds public ghost hunts through the building.
