Autumn Days at Paint Creek Cider Mill

Happy Friday, friends! Hope that you had a productive week and you’re able to kick back and relax this weekend. If you’re looking for a fall activity to do this weekend, may I suggest visiting Paint Creek Cider Mill?

Located in Rochester, Michigan, Paint Creek Cider Mill is a Metro Detroit cider mill and a family-operated small business. We took the kids to Paint Creek in mid-September for a Sunday visit. We really enjoyed our visit and the delicious apple cider and cinnamon donuts!

CIDER MILLS ARE NOW A FALL FAMILY TRADITION

I had shared a photo of our visit on my Instagram and quite a few of my IG buddies told me they have fond memories of visiting Paint Creek Cider Mill when they were younger.

Since we moved here in late March of 2015, this was our first time visiting Paint Creek. In fact, before moving to Michigan, I didn’t know that going to a cider mill was a common fall activity.

The small Tennessee city I’m from doesn’t have a cider mill (I don’t think??) so I didn’t know very much about cider mill season when we first moved to Michigan.

I have Michigan to thank for my newfound love of cider mills. The first cider mill we visited was Westview Orchard and I remember telling Travis we need to make this our fall family tradition! And so we did!

We loved Paint Creek’s apple cider and cinnamon donuts! We even bought a gallon to take home with us.

The dozen cinnamon donuts we bought did not leave the picnic table, though! Haha! We happily finished the donuts at the restaurant!

Along with the fall favorites, Paint Creek Cider Mill also offers a variety of traditional deli meal options such as burgers, sandwiches, and wraps. The restaurant even has ice cream and milkshakes!

I ordered the apple cider milkshake and it was DELICIOUS!

PAINT CREEK CIDER MILL PARKING INFO

Parking at Paint Creek Cider Mill is FREE and there is a parking lot on-site. There is also parking available near the walking trail, located behind the cider mill.

However, it is also a very quick walk from the cider mill. It would also be a fun idea to bring your bike and ride on the trail. 🙂
