Temple’s Sugarbush is one of Lanark County’s premiere maple syrup destinations, and an experience here will bring the maple syrup roots of Lanark County to the forefront. Paired with really great food and drink, Temple’s offers guests a chance to experience maple syrup production at its finest.
While at Temple’s, wander through a nature trail on the 77-acre property and see the sugar maples that produce the sap used in Temple’s sweet syrup. Learn about maple syrup production and the wildlife that shares the forest. Visit the general store, where everything is made from scratch, have a delicious maple-inspired breakfast and then relax around the firepit and enjoy some taffy on snow.
Visitors will love dining in Temple’s authentic timber frame dining hall, an exquisite example of a heritage trade in the area. A 200-seat communal eating area is a big hit, and guests can chat with neighbours while enjoying their meal, an experience reminiscent of a log cabin sugarbush in Quebec.
On weekends you can choose between their “cabane-à-sucre” dining experience with a hearty buffet that includes slow-roasted maple-glazed smoked ham, house-made maple sausages, roasted potatoes, maple baked beans, frittata, green salad, buttermilk pancakes, French toast, buttermilk biscuits, fruit salad, maple granola, and yoga – and – naturally – fresh maple syrup.
Don’t miss the chance to savour the “Sip & Savour Breakfast” dish, formerly known as The Sugarmakers Breakfast, and pair it with locally roasted coffee or Perth Brewery’s maple ale, made with Temple’s own maple syrup.
Temple’s is a fully licensed establishment and offers products from local brewers, wineries and distilleries to give guests a true taste of the valley. The accessible dining room and washrooms mean that everyone can participate.
Join the more than 10,000 visitors who travel to Temple’s restaurant each year and see what all of the fuss is about!
