For many people, fall is the epitome of seasons in the mountains. The way the angled light hits all the dimensions of the landscape makes the colors more bold, the shadows more mysterious, the water more glistening, and the breath a little deeper. You start to smell wood smoke from people’s stoves in the morning and evening. Squirrels, deer and bear are very busy feeding on the abundance of acorns and nuts in our ecosystem. Hiking can be a majestic experience in the fall, followed by dinner at the Inn and an evening soak in the Hot Springs… what a treat!
Our restaurant features rich, warming flavors in the fall- local butternut squash, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes; fennel bulb salad; pies baked with local apples; roasted duck; oh the aromas and flavors coming out of that kitchen are so enticing to hungry mouths in the fall.
Local fall events include a September Brew Fest at the Hot Springs Campground, a county fair in Marshall, molasses cooking from locally raised sorghum, and all the leaf peeping your heart could desire. The local Saturday farmer’s market runs through October. And the Mountain Magnolia serves up a fine, fine Thanksgiving dinner in November!
