Maple Staple – Nature has a sweet way of letting us know that winter is nearly over when the maple-sugaring season begins in late March. Native Americans who introduced early American settlers to maple sugar first started the time-honored tradition. Nowadays, maple flavor is used to enhance just about everything including syrup, cookies, baked goods, ice cream, jelly, and tea. If you’re ready to tap into all things maple you don’t want to miss demonstrations at 100 Acre Wood’s Sugar Shack (recently listed as the #1 best FREE event in NH for the month of March by New Hampshire magazine).
To accompany this 1785 Inn, in North Conway, New Hampshire, features low spring rates. Discounted room rates during maple sugaring season in March and April start at $99 per couple per night which includes a country breakfast with Innkeeper Becky’s famous homemade blueberry pancakes and yup, freshly-tapped maple syrup
