On a leaf peeping drive my mother and I stopped in to shop and have a late breakfast. We had to wait a short while, which gave us time to watch the video on the process of making maple syrup. Breakfast was delicious and features their own syrup. They also have hot apple cider, it was delicious!!!! After breakfast we... More

Not inexpensive but worth the extra for the unique corn fritters and the tasty pancakes. All served with real maple syrup.

Gould's in Shelburne Falls, MA is a real treasure, but it is hard to find open. I finally asked. Since it is a maple sugaring operation, they are really only open in March/April, and then again during foliage season, Sept/October/. Open from 8 AM to 2 Pm. But the building is original and rustic. Expect picnic tables and benches. Steps... More

We have been going to Gould's for 45 years. We go every fall and sometimes in the spring. It's our annual family "Pickles and Pancakes" outing. The food is amazing...homemade sausage, the best pancakes ever, but it might be the homemade pickles that keeps us coming back! We often have to wait for a table, but the wonderful breakfast is...

for 40+ years we have been going to Gould's Sugar House for the best pancakes you can imagine not to mention their wonderful real maple syrup made in the Spring. They also make a great western sandwich and corn fritters are very popular! Helen Gould who is in her 80's still makes her rounds through the restaurant talking to all... More

Have been going to Gould's for the past few years and I usually take my mother and her sister since it's their birthday! Love the pickles start, I usually get 2 blueberry pancakes and Mom and her sister get the waffle, it's a personal choice, but the homemade sausage is special! This year my wife joined us and she went... More

Returning to MA always brings a stop at Gould's if the season is right. The wonderful light pancakes with the delicious, freshly boiled maple syrup is a trip not to be missed. We were fortunate on Monday to get the last open table in the restaurant. We waited a bit for our order, but it was well worth waiting for.... More

This place was very popular on the day we visited. Breakfast at a sugar house :) Nice thing to do during the times when the sap runs :)

We visited Goulds on the last day they were open this season. The maple soft serve ice cream was wonderful. We were too late for a full lunch however. We will definitely stop in the next time we are in the Berkshires.

a wonderful place to bring the kids to see how maple syrup is made. It opens in the spring as the weather warms up and the sap begins to run. The bonus is to taste that syrup on pancakes later.
