We have been passing this place for years and always wondered what it was about . We checked and when we realized that it is seasonal we made a stop today.Pancakes and waffles were as good as others said they were .No wait on a Thursday morning.

We make it a point each year to have breakfast at a local sugar house, at least once. We have to say they all have charm....but our hands down favorite is Gould's ! We love the dining room...rustic charm....with a lovely wood stove. You need to remember it can be chilly so dress for it. Their hours are 8:30 -... More

They process the maple syrup right there on the premises. The owners/managers were so kind and answered all our questions. Their family story is one that will inspire you.

Gould's is a great place to go during maple sugar season. They have a good menu and good pancakes. Its a little pricey for our taste, for what you get. The food is good but I guess your paying for the experience of eating at a maple sugar house. Very scenic area, very close to Shelburne Falls and Buckland, not... More

This gem is a seasonal restaurant so you have to catch them at the right time. It is open in the fall and then is open in the late winter to early spring. If you are planning to visit on the weekend be prepared to wait 2 hours or more as this is always a popular spot. The wait is... More

We grew up in htis area and have been going to Gould's as a rite of Spring for years. This is a nice family run breakfast/lunch location. Bring the kids to learn how maple sap is transformed into syrup, sugar and my favorite maple cream. Sign up for the dining room when you enter then you can sit by the... More

Wonderful step back into the past. Family tradition of making maple syrup comes alive! Watch the maple syrup being made and feel the heat and steam right in your face. Meet the owners and get the best breakfast you will ever experience in a building from the past century.

We went up to Goulds on a semi-annual trip for our usual fix of corn fritters! Just as yummy as ever. One of our party had the pancakes and they were wonderful too. Very crowded and a long wait (Sat) but its worth it. A weekday would be better. They will close for the season the last Sunday of April

Be ready for a wait if you're there for pancakes - but there's a reason. Then again, while you're waiting for your table, you get to spend time watching the maple sap reduction process, and the seemingly endless amount of firewood consumed in the process. Mrs. Gould still greets diners, and the shop has syrup and maple goodies for sale.... More
