Sugar Shack near Stowe, VT

I will be driving from Montreal to Stowe in February 2012. Can anyone recommend a Sugar Shack in that area? Also are there any must dos/must sees on route? Thanks...

By "Sugar Shack" do you mean Sugar House? If so, it will be too early to see one in operation. Are you looking to just buy some Maple Sugar?

Yes, sugar house/sap house/cabane à sucre.

I will more than likely buy syrup but was looking more for the experience of visiting a syrup making operation and perhaps having a meal/snack centered on maple syrup; the least commercial the operation the better (would prefer for it to not be a tourist trap).

I think you are out of luck. The sugaring season does not start until the end of March, at which time you can visit many of these smaller sugaring operations, as they often have open houses.

In February, you will not find them in operation.

We will be in Stowe during the open house time, March 23-24. Any recommendations on Sugar Houses and what to do? We'll be there a week with a 9 year old. We're hoping to ski if weather permits but if not will at least do a day trip to Montreal.

These folks have a nice little family-run operation, and a daily blog that talks about the sap running (or not, as weather dictates)
