Apple Barn Cider House in Sevierville is a sister business to Apple Barn Winery. Both are integral pieces of the famous Apple Barn Village, which also consists of award-winning restaurants, shops, and a creamery. This delightful destination sits on a historic apple orchard along the bank of the Little Pigeon River. If you’ve never visited, be sure to add a stop here to your next Smoky Mountain vacation.
As if the setting itself isn’t dreamy enough, the team behind Applewood Valley wows its visitors with hand-crafted wines and ciders made on site. Using local apples and grapes, the vintners create one-of-a-kind flavors for guests to partake in while they relax in Applewood Valley. Or visitors may purchase bottles to take home. We suggest both, and here’s why:
Visiting this Smoky Mountain Cider House
At Apple Barn Cider House, the team uses a sterile filtration process rather than a full pasteurization process. This method results in a crisp, clean drink that sets it apart from traditional hard ciders. Furthermore, the cider is crafted with local apples. One taste and you’ll agree that it is better than the rest.

Now that you’ve found the best hard cider, elevate the experience and enjoy a glass at the cider house. All ciders are on tap. Linger in the outdoor seating area and recap the trails you’ve hiked, plan the next day’s adventure, or simply sip next to the one you love. A stop at the Apple Barn Cider House is an opportunity to reinvigorate yourself.
Take a tip from the locals and grab a growler to fill with your favorite flavor! Take it back to your cabin or hotel to enjoy during your trip. These ciders pair well with any food, but our favorite is a charcuterie board built with local goodies like apple butter and country ham purchased from Apple Barn General Store.
Apple Barn Cider House offers a dozen flavors concocted with local apples and grapes. Don’t miss Simply Muscadine, which is crafted with apples and white muscadines. It’s a southern favorite, but of course, we love them all. BlueBarb is a must try! Another favorite, Red Lemonhead, is infused with strawberries and lemon.
