With its variety of spacious floor plans, high quality construction and affordable pricing, Gerstad Builders communities offer new home buyers beautiful homes in prime locations, all with easy access to the surrounding restaurants, shopping, entertainment, local events and festivals.

The Autumn Harvest Festival at The Elegant Farmer has become a tradition for many families surrounding the Williams Bay area, kicking off last weekend and scheduled to be held every weekend from now until through October 26. Known for its famous “pie in a bag” and beautiful orchards, visitors of this unique attraction can pick their own apples and pumpkins, take a hayride or train ride and go for an adventure through the winding five-acre corn maze. The Elegant Farmer is located approximately 30 minutes from the new homes at Gerstad Builder’s Bailey Estates community in Williams Bay, Wisconsin.

The fifth annual Taste of Lake Geneva is just around the corner and is scheduled for Saturday, September 13 at Flat Iron Park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hosted by Lake Geneva Country Meats, attendees of this fun event can enjoy snacking on tempting treats at food tents from the area’s best restaurants, including The Backyard and Bona’s Italian Kitchen. Geneva Lake Brewing Company and Sprecher’s Restaurant and Pub will also be serving locally crafted brews and wine at the event.

Homeowners at Liberty Trails in McHenry County can celebrate the changing seasons at this year’s Johnny Appleseed Festival in downtown Crystal Lake on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be meet and greet opportunities with Johnny Appleseed, storytelling, a large craft fair, scarecrow decorating, musical and dance performances from local groups and so much more!
