Go Pumpkin Picking, Then Sleep In A Cabin Surrounded By Fall Foliage On This Weekend Getaway In Colorado
You know Paonia as a base camp for all things skiing and winter sports, but did you know that the popular tourist destination is also quite lovely in the colorful fall? If you love all things autumn and cannot get enough of this glorious time of year, we recommend spending a splendid weekend in this small Colorado community:
Welcome to Paonia, a Western Slope town that is arguably one of the most beautiful in the Centennial State!
Home to just over 1,500 residents, Paonia is as lovely as the flower it was named for (the peony) no matter the time of year; however, it manages to become even more magical in the fall when the trees turn vibrant shades of orange, red, and yellow.
Situated in the North Folk Valley, there are vineyards, orchards, and pumpkin patches a-plenty in Paonia, including the picturesque Orchard Valley Farms and Market.
Open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Memorial Day through Halloween, Orchard Valley Farms is THE place to spend a fall day, thanks to its u-pick (and pre-picked) produce, pumpkin patch, and special events.
Need we mention that after you pick that perfect pumpkin, you can enjoy a glass of wine at the attached Black Bridge Winery?
To learn more about Orchard Valley Farms and everything it has to offer,
please visit its website.
After spending the day out and about, it is time to kick back at the cabin/guest house at the Zephyr Ranch!
Boasting one bedroom and one bathroom, it doesn't get much better than this Zephyr Ranch beauty, as the home offers a fun and rustic ambiance plus a comfortable sitting area and full kitchen.
As you may have guessed, the landscape surrounding the cabin is pretty incredible, too.
To learn more about the guest house - or to book your stay -
please see its listing on Airbnb.
