Inskip Inn and the Stirling City Hotel

At 3,500 feet elevation, folks enjoy Stirling City year round. It’s cool in the summer, and has snow in winter, which is fun for snowmobiling. We prefer visiting in the Spring to view the many waterfalls, or in the summer to escape the valley heat, but the area has become very popular with snowmobilers in the winter.

A Little History with Your Apples

You can still visit an apple orchard that has producing trees that date back to the late 1800’s.  Since 1921 the Noble Orchards have been producing apples.  It’s still family run, and is the last of such farms on the Ridge.  Seventeen varieties of apples are harvested from the now 30 acres and 20 acres of peaches and nectarines.  Pies for the Johnny Appleseed Festival are made from Noble Orchard apples.

History buffs will appreciate the 1932 fruit packing shed still in use today, and collectors will appreciate the original fruit labels (ones that were never put on those old wooden boxes). So whether you just want to purchase some quality apples or experience a little of the Ridge history, you’ll enjoy a visit to Noble Orchards.
