This is a touristy little gift shop featuring all things maple-sugary. Known for its cider donuts. There is also a large display of Norman Rockwell prints, and a video about him and his work.

The sugar shack on Arlington Vermont is an authentic country store. It is one of the best shops to get some Vermont goodies

The Sugar Shack is such a neat place to visit. I’m a local here in town and always enjoy their maple products. Kim, Michelle and Molly make you feel so welcome when you come in. Had a maple milkshake for the first time. Yum. Yum!...More

Syrup samples to try and lots of syrup products. Great maple ice cream! Wish we could learn more about how they make the syrup, but they said we could only see it when they were processing it in the spring.
