Sugar shacks near Montreal which are particularly family-friendly include Cabane à Sucre Paquette if only for the assortment of activities its offers on-site as well as the sugar shack's attentive staff who, incidentally, dress up in period costumes to entertain guests as they serve traditional sugar shack meals, adding to the ambiance. And on weekends, live traditional Quebec folk music is often on the agenda.
The shack's competitive sugar shack meal prices and unlimited maple taffy policy don't hurt either.*
Cabane à Sucre Paquette's 2017 season runs February 25, 2017 until April 17, 2017.
Spend the day hiking in the woods, visiting the sugar shack's Maple Museum, hopping on a pony and learning to ride. Take a sleigh ride to a deer enclosure in the woods, and check out Cabane à sucre Paquette's animal farm. It's one of the larger ones found in sugar shack land with chickens, geese, rabbits, goats, sheep, and lamas in the mix. Some activities cost a small fee.
Cabane à Sucre Paquette is a choice sugar shack for large events (corporate events, weddings, etc.) given its capacity, with three halls on location seating up to 600 people. The sugar shack is also wheelchair accessible.
