The BEST Apple Experience near Brookside Mountain Mist Inn 2023

Well,  Bill and I thought it would be fun to give you all some 

Info on Apple Pickin’ in the towns around Waynesville, which is where

Brookside Mountain Mist Inn sits nestled in the western North Carolina

Mountains, close to the entrance of the Smoky Mountain Expressway

And Smoky Mountains National Park!  And while sitting on the back desk

Overlooking our beautiful Smoky Mountains, is sure relaxing, there is shopping

Eating out, Asheville, The Biltmore, and lots of festivals all summer long. We have 

Provided you a list her:


While there is clearly TONS to do around this wonderful small

Town from Summer through Fall, we thought for this post we would give you a list, with links to all the fun Apple Pickin’ places around these parts!  Now, if you don’t 

Want to climb trees, or ladders, whatever the case might be, we understand

And applaud you for that decision!  So at all of these places there are

Countless varieties of apples available from mid-summer into late fall.

And Brookside Mountain Mist Inn, here in Waynesville, NC., is the perfect

Place to stay as a hub to do your shopping and your apple pickin’!

So, we invite you to make a reservation, you don’t want to miss out on our 5-star

Breakfasts, for sure, or the comfy beds and large en-suite rooms!


So we will count on seeing you! 

Here is the list, each with it’s own link. A few are about 90 minutes away,

but the drive is beautiful and the end of the road is 

Delicious!! The rest are nearby.
