  • We've been here now 2 different times of the year and it's lots of fun. Lines get long but move fairly quickly. Prices are good and selection of apples is amazing. The store has everything you could imagine.
  • THE PLACE FOR APPLEA & PIE IN BLUE RIDGE!! If you are looking for anything Apple like pies, cider, bread, butter, etc it's here. I have never had a bad experience and we come here several times a year. The only thing that I don't like so far is there apple butter. Theirs is a little on the dark side in my opinion. With that said I give them a solid 5 stars!!! It's a must visit!
  • Mercier is a favorite yearly stop for me. Try and go in early- to mid-October for the best selection. But even if you miss the "U Pick" season (early Fall), you can still do an absolutely lovely tractor ride that includes their delicious hard ciders. It's gorgeous out here, and Blue Ridge and Copperhill are close if you want to grab a beer and a bite in either scenic town.
  • I went during the week, so it wasn’t too busy, I imagine weekends are very crowded. The wonderful aromas that hit you when you walk through the door are enough to make you want to stay for a while. There’s a bakery with those famous fried pies, breads, cookies etc... a little cafe to enjoy some coffee, tea or cider... A gift shop and even a bar that serves up wine and hard cider. Lots to see, staff is abundant and very friendly and helpful. Take a day trip, it’s worth it!
  • It was packed!! The Disney sized lines moved very quickly and everyone was very polite and customer oriented. Don’t leave without the apple cider donuts and the handheld fried fruit pies!! Microwave donuts 10 seconds and dip in maple syrup. Then fall back into a comfy chair in front of a fire. Life is good.

Where to stay in Blue Ridge

Although Blue Ridge offers a good selection of budget-friendly bed and breakfasts and luxury resorts, the easiest way to experience this scenic part of Georgia may be to stay at a mountain cabin. The area surrounding Blue Ridge boasts many privately owned vacation cabins. Many offer spacious rooms and their own fireplace and hot tub, plus unbeatable mountain views and lots of privacy. For something a little more rugged, consider staying at a campground offering both tent and trailer sites.
