“Idyllic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Local ice cream served at a spot that overlooks the farm, pastures and cows. Sunset at one of the picnic tables with a scoop of honey almond (local honey) is perfect. It does get crowded on summer evenings, so consider an off time if you want the view to yourself.

“yummy country ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Homemade ice cream way, way out in the country. Loved that there were pieces of caramel and green apples in the caramel apple ice cream. Some unique and tasty flavors. Plus, I appreciate that there are rocking chairs on the front porch to overlook corn fields

“Best ice cream and best atmosphere in Chapel Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

With family in Chapel Hill, we visit pretty regularly, and we always make sure to stop at Maple View. This is a fantastic spot for all. The ice cream is delicious, with lots of different flavors available. But the atmosphere, the ambiance, is really what we go for. You can sit on the porch in a rocking chair, or in the picnic tables in the adjoining yard, and look across farms and fields. One of the most idyllic, relaxing spots we know, and just minutes outside of town. Definitely worth the visit.

“Best Ice Cream in Orange County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Sit in a rocker on the front porch and watch the sun set on the most beautiful view in Orange County. Then only thing that improves this view is the quality of the ice cream made fresh from the farm just across the field.

“great venue, bleh ice cream, good milkshakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Locals go nuts, as you can see, over this place, and it's sooo gorgeous, with an actual view,
rocking chair porch, real cows, the whole nine yards. The milk is great, the cream is great, the
ice cream is of the lower fat sort and kind of flavorless. Vanilla milkshakes are terrific, however.

Kids love it and we always take out of town visitors there just for the great looks of the place.
NC is not known for its great ice cream, however, and Maple View is no exception.
