    Albeit, we visited prior to the Cranberry Festival and didn't have a chance to see many cranberries in the fields, we still enjoyed walking around the area, which is very beautiful and picturesque. Th...  more »

    We went just before harvesting. It was very interesting learning about cranberries and how they grow. There is a very good store to browse in and taste their wines. We had a picnic and enjoyed the bea...  more »

    The ice skating trail is a great attraction for the area. Definitely a great place to skate. The cranberry wine is also pretty good!

    DISAPPOINTED!!!! Another Cranberry Festival has come and gone and again my friends and I were in attendance. It was a beautiful weekend and I am sure with great success for your marsh You do have a beautiful establishment and we very much enjoyed in the past. Now this being said this year I believe you have made a big mistake. Changes and price increases are inevitable and everyone understands this. But the way you did this, IS TRICKERY. You are trying to foul the people on your price increase. TICKETS $2 EACH in large print and smaller print for attractions........ 3 TICKETS WAGON RIDE , 4 TICKETS BOG WALK. Why not just tell the people the price $6 or $8. I don’t understand why you would this confusing way to have people do the math as they stand to pay. Most people are elderly and lots of tourists. I was so greatly disappointed, as were my friends and I can assure you, I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE. I did not make a fuss with your employee’s. They are in the front line having to take all the complaints....not fair for them. In summary this has put me in a damper coming to your marsh! I had respected for the Johnson name….I know question this. Also all cranberry bags were large – no small to be found. I can tell you, you lost sales there. Good luck in the future. I will always attend the festival but unsure if I will ever go back to your marsh or buy your product at the festival in town. You can only trick me once!

    Very nice country setting. The wines were excellent for being made from cranberries. It's the worth the little detour off the main roads of you are in the area
