  • I loved that this was a free exhibit and gave a lot of information on Norman Rockwell. Most, if not all, of his prints are available to see and read the story behind it. There is a movie that you can watch, but we did not. Plus its located inside the Sugar Shack where you can stock up on syrup and other goodies!
  • The SUGAR SHACK is "the" place to visit in Vermont. No trip is complete without a tastey maple ice cream and fresh cider donut sandwhich or a waffle with lightly flavored maple ice cream and BURBON maple syrup drizzled on top.Kim, the owner, is a wealth of information on the process of making the maple sap magically transform into syrup. There is a decent sized shed on site that houses the mysterious device that converts raw sap into sweet flavored liquid. Sap can not been stored and needs to be cooked when collected. The Pinterest worthy reciepe and process is explained in educational details on location. Kim's husband fills each bottle by hand and secures the tops. It is a fun and educational stop for children. The stores is filled with delicious goodies, warm hoodies - sweats -fleeces and the ever popular " I'D TAP THAT" shirt line. There are fun items for kids of ALL ages. Free hot cider greets you upon arrival, Fresh gourmet cheeses and goodies are too tempting to pass up! Norman Rockwell was a native. Who used over 200 local residents in his famous art work. There are individual pictures of the men, women and children he immortalized with their individual stories and photos for each illustration he did.His stories literally COME ALIVE for you. The exhibit is FREE and prints and souvenirs can be purchased.Great for home schooling and field trips during these Covid times ! Picnic tables are available outside. You will be delighted when you stop in. This is NO ordinary tourist stop during your fall foliage trek. This is an AMAZING learning experience and PURE JOY for your taste buds. Children get excited to learn when an artist pictures come alive for them with personalized stories. Heck, they might even be interested in crossing the coveted bridge and seeing Norman Rockwell's home near by!! You can purchase products on line or through their Face book page. There are lots of items you can only get in store as inventory is always growing with new items added. However you order, be sure to tell them. "AMY" sent ya!
