Sugar shacks near Manchester, NH

I know it's a little early for NH, but there are stirrings here in WMass for sugaring and it's got my mouth watering. I will be visiting the Bedford area in a few weeks and wondered if there are any nice little sugar shacks in the area that my college student and I could visit- preferably where we could have a few pancakes. I'd like to keep it within a 45 min drive, if possible, as I'll be coming off a 2+ hr drive. Thanks in advance for your help.

  1. The go-to place is Parker's Maple Barn in Brookline NH:

    Beware, no reservations and waits on the weekend are hellish.

      Yes, be there by about 8 a.m. (which means leaving Manchester or Nashua by about 7:30 a.m.) or be prepared to wait! It is well worth the trip, though.

    2. It's a little farther to drive, but try the Intervale Farms Pancake House in Henniker!

      1. Where do you recommend in W. Mass. I'd like to bring 20 people.

          Sorry I can't give you any recent recommendations as I haven't been in years. Here's a website with a sugarhouse directory. Good luck!
