Five U.S. Small Lodgings Offer Creative Fall Treats And Outdoor Activities To Get You Traveling Again

You may be understandably hesitant to travel, but these fine small lodgings have sweetened the deal with special autumn treats to let you know things will be fine, if you remember health guidelines and focus on seasonal, outdoor fun.

Pie on the Pillow

Wandering byways, antiquing and such may take much of your day. But at night, at the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast in Salisbury Mills, New York, in the Hudson Valley, a slice of pie greets guests on their pillow. The inn, about an hour’s drive from New York City, offers cherry, cream, and apple. (The apple pie recipe is here.)

Riverboats and Foliage

Stay at the Huron House Bed and Breakfast in Oscoda, Michigan, and hike through the majestic Huron-Manistee National Forest. Next day, consider a trip on the AuSable River Queen, the only paddlewheel river boat of its kind in the north. You’ll see Bald Eagles perch on the trees along the river bank. A “land and sea foliage” package is available.

Apple-Caramel Dippings

At The Hotel Saugatuck in Saugatuck, Michigan, start your visit at the nearby Crane Orchards and hand-pick your own apples. Then return to the lakeside property in the evening for a private in-room caramel apple feast for two. The hotel will provide warm caramel and a selection of toppings so you can dip and ‘decorate’ your freshly picked apples.
