New England Fall’s Are THE Best!

Fall in New England is such a wonderful time. My favorite thing to do with the kiddos when they were younger is apple picking. We have a couple of orchards right here in Little Compton. Young’s Family Farm on East Main Road has pick your own apples, and a very cute farm stand with a large variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers. They have a festival every fall that people come from all over to attend.

 I always went to Old Stone Orchard on Colebrook Road. The owners are old family friends of ours, and the trees are just right for little ones to pick. They are all trimmed to remain just tall enough to pick from the ground, no ladder required. They have tons of different varieties, pumpkins, gift items, corn stalks and such for decoration and more. 

If you want to come and make a weekend out of it, our Samuel Church Estate, almost within walking distance of Old Stone Orchard, still has some availability for the weekends this fall. With 4 bedrooms and enough room to sleep 11- you can bring the kiddos AND the grandparents. Or bring another family and all the little ones can camp out together in the bedroom at the end of the hall- it has a set of bunk beds and a trundle bed. Our families have had some epic hide and seek games, guitar playing & singing in the dining room (which has excellent acoustics so I’ve been told) and one family had an entire castle make believe with scroll writing at the old desks. 

I had a lot of fun decorating the eight (!!) fireplaces for fall this week.
This one is in the master bedroom: 

 

This is the third bedroom: 

 

This is in the master bathroom. Yes, there is a fireplace in the bathroom! With a claw foot soaking tub and wifi connected speaker you might just miss the apple picking adventure! 

This is in the dining room, I used some feathers from our peacock who left them for me all over the farm!
