Spring is just around the corner in New England, which means it’s sugaring season here in Vermont! Just minutes away from Inn Victoria you will find Mitch’s Maples Sugar House, where you can enjoy some of the best, pure Vermont maple products including Maple Syrup and Maple Cream!
A great deal of time and passion goes into this sugar house, dating back to 1945 Mitch’s Maples is owned and operated by Mark Mitchell. Our innkeeper, Jessica has been going here her whole life, growing up right down the road. Mark’s father Don would let her taste test the fresh, hot syrup right when it was being made, and you can come do the same! The Mitchell’s run sugar-house tours all season, where you can see smell & taste the boiling sap. This is a “can’t miss” opportunity while staying at Inn Victoria in the spring. You can come learn about the different grades, where it comes from and how maple syrup is made from sap to syrup. Then taste it yourself the next morning at breakfast, you can’t beat it! Don’t go home without some of Mark’s famous Maple Cream either!
We use Mitch’s maple syrup for a variety of things, from our Crème Brule French toast, to whipped pancakes to our famous maple-nut granola! Thank you Mark for your continued business with Inn Victoria.
