As we edge slowly closer to spring, some sweet maple temptations await at five regional sugar shacks.
Fairmont Le Château Montebello (Montebello, QC)
Why it’s worth the drive: This oh-so-Canadiana building is not simply the largest log hotel in the world, it has a maple sugar shack inside its unique lobby, complete with maple taffy on snow (tire-sur-neige). Wheelchair, walker and stroller accessibility means the Château makes perhaps the sweetest destination for multi-generational family visits, where everyone can partake happily. Sample maple delicacies, then head out for a cross-country ski, snowshoe, or dogsled along the Château’s trails (fees apply; equipment can be rented).
