Collecting sap in a tin bucket
Help us hanging buckets this Maple Sugar season to collect sap in making Vermont’s most cherished specialty, maple syrup. Each year Mother nature dictates when the sap starts to run. It has to be over 40 during the day & back into freezing in the night. Guests may join us in tapping about 50 maples , some of them which line the driveway to Abbott’s Glen. It is an age old tradition that punctuates the end of winter.Take aa ride down the country roads of southern Vermont and check out some of the sugaring operations. This weekend is the 2020 Maple Festival Weekend so get ready for a good time and meet some of the locals making maple syrup.
If we are lucky, guests maybe able to cross country ski or snowshoe with just a t shirt. Of course, the hot tub & sauna are two ways to warm up or situate yourself near a wood fire with a beverage.
Saturday breakfast we will prepare our first Vermont Maple Sugar season theme event to get things started. Each meal will feature maple in 1 form or another. A sweet breakfast served in the Meadow House dining room with all of our guests. Our meals always reflect the season & utilize as much local products as the year allows.
Table set for dinner on Saturday evening in the Meadow House
If you have heard that Vermont in March is all about Mud season & Maple, you are correct! Be part of the fun. After dinner head on over to Club Sugar Shack for pool, Foosball or dancing to Lindy’s tunes, a lively mix of oldies & contemporary.
