  • It works much better as a farm. They produce good maple syrup and the pick-your-own-berries thing is great. But the other stuff -- the kiddie fun stuff? You can skip it unless you're really immune to ...  more »

  • Most frustrating experience ever. My sister was coming to town and the one thing she asked to do was go to a shaver shack... I called on Monday and spoke with someone who recommended I come Tuesday instead of Monday since it would have more activities. We spoke about the sugar shack and I said I'd definitely come the next day. The next day I drove all the way out there wth my infant and sister only to find out they would not be able to accommodate us at all since they started a morning tour with a school and maybe they could do a tour for us at 6:30 at night (it was 11:00). Just awful. I was so frustrated as it's not as though "I just showed up" I had spoken to them on the phone just the day before! I'm a teacher and organize a lot of field trips and have never been met by such an unfriendly, or unapologetic experience. I will not be returning or booking anything here in the future. There are lots of other places, so no need for this level of frustration for what should have been a relaxing family day.
  • Cozy sugar bush location not far from a major mall. There's some live stock, a sugar shack, horse drawn buggy to the taffy snow area. There are are several structures for kids to climb on, washrooms are abundant.
  • This review is only for the buffet, I think the syrup is fine. I went for the breakfast buffet for $23 a person and most of the food was overcooked. Even my 8 year old nephew commented that the bacon was "rough" because it was cooked so slowly and for so long that even though it was hard and near black, it had a chew much like tough jerkey. Another note is that the dining room was packed like anchovies in a can even though there was another room with 3 tables (seating 20 people each) completely empty. The costumers would have done a better job seating themselves rather then have the employee's do it.
  • Our tour guides were very knowledgeable about Maple syrup production and processing. We went here in winter (mid March), because that's the maple syrup flow season. The tour was well organised and we were also able to buy pure maple products afterwards.
  • We found the food to be overpriced. It was good, but not that good. In addition to the (steep) cost of food, you need to pay to visit the sugar bush. I would think that $110 for two adults and 3 kids would warrant free admission. Nope, $5 a person. We took a wagon to the play area. Kids had fun. It was -23, so went went to warm up in the warm up place. Heat wasn't on. Needless to say we were frozen. Missed a wagon and decided to walk back. Apparently this is not allowed (there was no sign, though we saw one when we got back to the other end). We were scolded. Heck, we couldn't wait around 15 minutes, if the heat was on, we would have been OK to. Also, port o potties were very full. My youngest almost refused to go. I find it odd that a restaurant doesn't have flush toilets and warm water to wash ones hands. This isn't a fry stand, we paid a ridiculous amount. We won't be returning unless some major changes are made. It's too bad, we love go support local businesses.
