I am planning on planting 3 to 5 apple trees for eating, baking and cider. My wife keeps telling me to get some heirloom varieties but I am not sure which ones and where to get them.

I am looking for suggestions from growers for a disease resistant apple tree for my climate.

The tree location is full sun.

You're best choices will include Liberty, Freedom, and Enterprise. These trees are immune to scab, and resistant to fireblight and cedar apple rust. They are often recommended to organic growers because they are very low-spray and perform well without pesticides, comparably.
