The holidays are behind us and we are settling into winter here in the Great Smoky Mountains. For those of you who only visit in the summer, the winter season at Applewood Farmhouse is quite cozy and romantic. Our fireplaces are ablaze, our amazing comfort food is piping hot, and the sights and sounds of the Smokies are breathtaking with views all over Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg of the snow-capped mountains. Those fireplaces feel great with the frigid temps that Ole Mother Nature has been delivering!
Something you might not know is that January is National Soup Month. That being said and also with the mention of the frigid temps just remember that Applewood has it covered! Take a drive on up to the Smokies and stop in and kick off your meal with one of our deliciously hot and fresh soups or chili such as the Loaded Potato Soup, Grandma’s Vegetable Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup, Broccoli Cheddar Soup, or either our White Bean Chicken Chili or Hearty Beef Chili. Yum! There is no better way to warm up than gathering with friends and family over your favorite Applewood meal!
Just remember that our winter hours are now in effect. The Original Farmhouse Restaurant is now open Friday through Tuesday and The Grill is open Wednesday through Sunday, both are open 8am-9pm.
