Our Sugarhouse Restaurant
2016 will be the final and last season for our sugarhouse restaurant. After 30 years deep snow, icy cold weekend mornings and the occasional frozen pipes, its time slow down a bit and work less. At age 70, its time to dial it back. Our sugarhouse restaurant will be open weekends in 2016, starting February 27th and running through Sunday April 3rd. We are closed Easter Sunday. Please come pay us a visit, this year will be your last opportunity. See our Facebook page for regular reports on the maple sugaring season and for weekend specials in the restaurant.
Our cozy dining area is an integral part of our maple producing operation. Our traditional old New England sugarhouse and restaurant is open starting the last weekend in February 2016, and stays open to the public for six weekends. Our hours are 8:30-3:00.You can watch pure maple syrup being made and then just a few steps away, taste the results on a plate of steaming hot blueberry pancakes. See our menu below for a complete list of our selections.
We offer a varied menu of traditional New England sugarhouse food, using the best ingredients from local farms and other sources. These include blueberries from Tripp's Blueberries in Heath, farm fresh eggs from Diemand Eggs Farm in Millers Falls, ice cream from Bart's Ice Cream in Greenfield, and milk from local Massachusetts dairies. Our French toast is made from locally baked real French bread, or cinnamon bread. All of our batters are made from scratch each day using the finest ingredients.
Seating in our restaurant ranges from tables for 2 persons, to a few long tables that will seat a party of 8 or more. We do not take reservations, but feel free to call ahead for information at 413-628-3268.
Warm and sunny Sundays in March are usually very busy here, and sometimes there is a wait to get into our sugarhouse restaurant. In order to avoid these potentially very busy days, we suggest three alternatives: Visit us on a Saturday; come on the first or last weekends that we are open; or arrive either when we first open up in the morning or after 2 pm. Our inside waiting area is only partially heated, so dress warmly. If you arrive mid-morning on a beautiful warm Sunday in mid-March, expect to find lots of other visitors with the same idea! We have benches outside, so you can bring the Sunday paper and sit in the sun while you wait for your table to be ready.
