With just a few weeks left until Fall, the fully automated Sugar Shack, located at 929 Fairview Lake Road in Stillwater, shows no signs of stopping soon. This cute, self-serve, soft ice cream trailer is open every day from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. It delights all ages and sports plenty of comfortable outdoor seating with landscaping to rival more established businesses.

Their Facebook page shows they sell four flavors of ice cream including seasonal favorites like strawberry, mint and maple cream, in cups or cones at very reasonable prices.
