It’s Time to Take a Fall Foliage Tour this Autumn

Fall is our favorite time of year at Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast.  With fall temperatures transforming the local landscape into a natural blanket of colorful brilliance, our first instinct is to get in our cars and survey the beauty.  Central New York is synonymous with fall foliage. Although “leaf peeping” might be one of the silliest sounding terms, it isn’t an activity you’ll want to miss.  So, stick your head out the window and salivate like a puppy at the majestic fall foliage that dominates the landscape of one of New York’s most historic and scenic regions.

Want more fall fun?

If the breathtaking foliage isn’t reason enough, try classic fall activities such as pumpkin and apple picking, bicycling along the Erie Canal Trailway, or explore the picturesque Village of Cooperstown.  During the short but scenic drive from Herkimer to Cooperstown, you’ll be treated to gorgeous open vistas of colorful meadows, forests and farmland.  We recommend a visit to the Fly Creek Cider Mill, located just minutes from Cooperstown.  Known for its historically authentic machinery, the Mill makes its cider in the traditional rack-and-cloth method using the power of water from the Millpond.  You can witness the entire process in the Cider Gallery and expanded Learning Center overlooking the original equipment while operators demonstrate the cider-making technique and explain the process.

Set among the Mohawk Valley’s changing falls colors sits Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast, located in Herkimer New York.  With a stunning backdrop, our bed and breakfast is the ideal base hotel for a fall color road trip as you make your way along the New York State Thruway and throughout the region.  Our homemade breakfast recipes include signature fall flavors like pumpkin, apple, and maple, and are sure to delight your entire family.  We offer unrivaled personalized service and are delighted to share our knowledge of the local area to help guests make the most of their time outdoors.  Whether you plan ahead or want to be a bit more spontaneous, you won’t want to miss the fall foliage and autumnal events in the coming months.  Book your stay at to experience the best of fall in Central New York.
