Our Maple Groves


As its name suggests, this sugar shack is located on top of a hill and offers a breathtaking view overlooking the Eastern Townships. Your hosts, Judith and Martin, will offer you a traditional Québec meal inspired by their grandmothers’ cuisine. They also offer taffy on snow tastings. To help digest your meal, why not head out for a stroll on the beautiful paths of the domain. The sugar shack is open from Friday to Sunday. For the 2022 season, the shack will welcome guests starting on March 5. Reservations are required.
