One of the better known sugar shacks near Montreal if only for its owner's eccentric and outgoing personality, Sucrerie de la Montagne dubs itself the real sugar shack deal, built on a 200-year-old Quebec heritage site.
Sucrerie de la Montagne's 2017 sugaring off season is one of the longest in the business, running February 13 through May 7, 2017. In fact, the sugar shack is open year-round including during the Christmas holidays, offering authentic sugar shack meals, horse-drawn sleigh and wagon rides every season.
As for the traditional sugar shack season, work up an all-you-can-eat appetite cross-country skiing on the nearby 25 km of cross country ski trails (bring your own skis), request a guided tour of Sucrerie de la Montagne's maple-syrup-making facilities, shop at its general store and sample Sucrerie's mappe syrup perfume while you're there, and finish off the day with a hearty sugar shack meal dancing to live traditional Quebec folk music. There's also the option to stay overnight in one of the Sucrerie's on-site log cabins located on the premises, atop Mont Rigaud. Package deals available. Wheelchair accessible.
