We were visiting the Wine Trail and called to check if they're open (odd operating hours, especially in the winter season). The lady who answered said they weren't but that she would come into the shop if we let her know when we would arrive. The shop is right next door to the home and so the owner and her... 更多
Great little place to see. Syrups were amazing and owner very friendly. Went back twice. Can't see if from the road but don't miss going there.
Gail is cool and very generous with the samples, and her syrups (fruit and maple) are SO GOOD. There was also a really neat selection of local and raw honey. It's the very best of what a small agricultural place has to offer- home-grown, quality product and an emphasis on personal interaction.
How can you not give the Sugar Shack 10-stars? The day we stopped by, we found Gail, the proprietor, under a tractor...yeah...I'm pretty sure she's in her 70's!

Lured in by the sign that said "pick your own grapes," we found the Sugar Sack to be a wonderful family experience. Gail believes in the importance of family farms and runs a wonderful business. ffamilyexperience. familyexperience.
I travelled from Ontario to Virginia on the labour day weekend, and on my solo trip decided to take the recommendations of other trip advisors regarding this establishment. It was a long trip, and I was glad to stop for a while. What I didn't expect to find was the most wonderful little store with exquisite syrups that I was... 更多
Thanks to our fabulous innkeepers, Roger and Leslie of Lakeside B &B, for this wonderful suggestion. I loved it! The syrup tastings were yummy!!! Gail is a gem. Could talk with her all day.
