Welcome to the Orchard at Altapass and the majesty of Blue Ridge Mountains. Music fills the red barn from Thursday through Sunday. Apples from June through October. There is so much to do and see in this vast region of winding roads, crackling rivers, and pristine vistas in a backdrop of verdant peaks and lush valleys. Come for the apples, stay for the music and a bite. Experience a weekend of fun in the forests. We invite you to discover Western North Carolina.
