I've been coming to Gould's Sugar House for over forty years. I have brought my own children there. I annually took my second grade classes up for field trips to watch the sugaring process and then come in to enjoy yummy pancakes. Back in the day, Helen Gould would do the walk with us and explain everything to the kids.... More

The pancakes here are absolutely to die for! Perfectly fluffy, and served with their home made maple syrup. It's a really quaint little place, and the service was quick and friendly, and the price great. I really can't find fault!!

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.
