We visited Goulds on the last day they were open this season. The maple soft serve ice cream was wonderful. We were too late for a full lunch however. We will definitely stop in the next time we are in the Berkshires.

a wonderful place to bring the kids to see how maple syrup is made. It opens in the spring as the weather warms up and the sap begins to run. The bonus is to taste that syrup on pancakes later.

We were on the Mohawk Trail, looking for breakfast as we had set off from Albany that morning without. After almost giving up on finding anywhere, we whizzed past a red building that advertised breakfast pancakes. I told my husband to go back, as I knew he wanted pancakes. What a great place for breakfast, and good coffee too. (I... More

Love their pancakes with maple syrup and corn fritters. They are only open during fall leaf peeping and late winter sugaring season when you can watch maple sugar being made. They also have a cute gift shop that offers local crafts and tiny maple cream cones for a quarter. Great fun stop.

Best pancakes ever! Served with pickles while waiting for your pancakes or waffles. And of course- the real maple syrup. Go in March and you can watch them boil the sap and make the syrup. Very educational - they teach you how they make the syrup. The restaurant is family operated and they have their own little museum of antiques... More

The business is family run by the Goulds, who also own a farm in town. They tap maple trees in late winter and boil the sap to create maple syrup on site. They sell their syrup in the store and serve it in the restaurant where their pancakes are the BEST!

Gould's Sugar House is by far the best sugar house around. We have been going there once or twice a year for at least 15 years now and it never changes. The pancakes and sausage are delicious and the REAL maple syrup is the yummiest. They have a very nice gift shop to check out and spring/fall decorations also. Be... More

A great spot to enjoy delicious maple products, and see the maple syrup being produced. Open in the spring and fall. Try the corn fritters with fresh maple syrup. Mmmm
