Countryside Adventure

Get away from it all and get reacquainted with nature. At our Apple Mountain Resort, you can grill, ride, putt and swing while you look out over spectacular rolling green hills and woodlands as far as the eye can see. And when you’re ready to take a break from all those pretty as a peach views, just head inside for games, movies and family time. We’ve got the best of both worlds here for you, all tucked into a rustic oasis.

Barbecue Grills

What pairs perfectly with a landscape that looks like a Thomas Cole painting? The aroma of juicy, grilled goodness filling the air, of course! So go get some steaks, fire up one of our barbecue grills, and enjoy the scenery while you cook up a tasty family feast!
