Historic Vacation Rental Home in Georgeville, Quebec

sugar seasonSugar maple trees thrive in Quebec – they like cold winters, and for the sap to flow in spring they need cold nights and sunny days, so the climate is perfect. Starting around the middle of March, as the sap begins to rise, the sugar season lasts for around 6 weeks. And if you love sweet things, it's a great time to visit!

Using traditional methods, syrup and sugar is produced in sugar shacks (cabanes à sucre), many of which are open to visitors throughout the season, with menus and activities offering a taste of the tradition.

Visiting a sugar shack makes a wonderful day out, and the extensive kitchen at The Old Mansion House is ideal for experimenting with recipes using maple syrup products.
