New York’s Hudson Valley comes alive in autumn. Just outside the bright lights of New York City, this region offers a more relaxed and family-friendly stay than the Big Apple. As the landscape lights up with fiery orange, golden yellow, and vibrant red leaves, enjoy the fruits of the harvest when you sample juicy apples, local cheeses, confectionaries, wines, and beers.
There’s no better place to celebrate the fall fun than Rocking Horse Ranch Resort. In the charming town of Highland, this stay offers autumn activities for all ages. In fact, kids stay free select dates. Make sure that stay coincides with Fall Fest, a celebration chock-full of apple-picking, wine-tasting, cheese-sampling, and much more.
Fall Fest runs September through November and features a bevy of treats to sample. The food fun begins at Hudson Valley's finest apple orchards, Wilklow Orchards and Hurd's Family Farm. Your family is granted complimentary admission to Hurd's and apple picking at Wilklow when you stay here. No need to drive, as the ranch provides shuttle service to and from the local orchards.
Continue pleasing your palate with farm-fresh cheeses and fruits and chocolates from local farms such as Sprout Creek, Old Chatham Farm, R&G Cheese, and Cooperstown Cheese. For even more culinary creations, get a taste at Chef Paul's delicious Tasting Stations and watch his team prepare unique and scrumptious treats over an open flame. Adults can sample exceptional wines and beers from local standouts like Millbrook Vineyards, Whitecliff Vineyard, and Brotherhood Winery.
Adventurous families can soak in breathtaking views of the Hudson Valley on top of the world's longest pedestrian walkway. The Walkway Over The Hudson stretches over one mile across the historic Hudson River. The lodge will pack everyone a delicious lunch and provide complimentary shuttle service to this awe-inspiring attraction.
Frequenters of the fairway can tee it up at Apple Greens, a 27-hole championship golf course situated in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Apple Greens provides showcases rolling fairways, creative hole layouts, and stunning views of the Catskill and Shawangunk Mountain Regions. Golfers of all skill levels will find fun on the fairway.
All of this entertainment comes at a portion of the price with the resort’s fall deals. One of the most popular such price slashes is the kids stay free deal. Running select dates throughout the fall, the little ones can stay for free during certain days in September, October, and November.
With cash-conserving deals, a smorgasbord of treats to sample at Harvest Fest, and activities for all ages during autumn, Rocking Horse Ranch Resort invites your family to fall into fun.
