The sign said closed to the public, although they are still manufacturing Crown Maple Syrup. Perhaps this is temporary so I would recommend calling them before making the trek. Too bad...it was fun.

I took myself and family here on multiple times. If you are in Duchess County this is worth the trip. They do lunches and brunches, tours of the property. Very Interesting and in every way worth the trip out into the middle of nowhere.

I loved this place, serene atmosphere, lovely food, and what's better than maple syrup? Quite the discovery. Can't wait to go during winter and sit outside by the fire looking at the woods in snow, carbo-loaded on their pancakes.

Being a food production facility, animals are never allowed inside the facility. Dogs are, however, welcome on a leash outside of the Sugarhouse and on the walking trails (dog heaven!). We ask that proper dog etiquette... More
