Fall Harvest

Founded in 1962 by the late Dayton and Allene Hubbard, Corey Lake Orchards has become a tradition for those customers desiring the freshest fruits and vegetables available at their peak taste. We offer the best of what Michigan has to offer spring, summer and fall, in the middle of a breathtaking natural landscape.

As fall approaches, the farm bears apples, grapes, pears, squash and other fall ornamentals. As much as possible, they offer U-pick options to allow you to pick directly from the tree or vines.

Fall Color

Enjoy scenic country drives
T&R “Inn” Between the Lakes will provide you with scenic driving or cycling routes to take in the fabulous fall colors as you tour through Southwest Michigan’s rolling hills among the many lakes and streams. Also available, on-site, we have several miles of walking trails behind the Inn providing relaxing views of local hardwood forests.

Wine Tasting

Relax and take in the tastes, aromas, and textures of some of the fine local wine available at St. Julian Winery, Michigan’s oldest and largest winery. Located just 20 minutes from T & R “Inn” Between the Lakes.

You may visit Peterson & Sons Winery as well. Located just 30 minutes away, it is one of the few wineries in the world to produce wine without using any chemicals or preservatives, preventing the allergic reactions that may result from wines with sulfites or other additives. Over 30 varieties of all-natural wines are made from hand-picked and hand-washed Michigan fruits and grapes.

Also, don’t forget to check out Warner Vineyards. Located in Paw Paw, about 20 minutes away, where three generations have made sparkling, table and dessert wines, housed in a state-designated historical structure built in 1898. See the old world champagne-making process and then taste the wide range of wines and champagnes. Self-guided tours include a video and a view of the champagne aging caves. A great place to learn more about wines and how they are made.

Get Directions


Enjoy a soft cruise above everything. Fall is a great time for powerchuting!
Rouche Outdoor offers demo and instructional rides on powerchutes. A powered parachute is one of the safest aircraft you can fly. You can learn to fly for far less than you probably thought. It’s slower than typical aircraft, about 28 to 30 MPH, so the view of the fall colors is fantastic!
