Spent an amazing Sunday afternoon enjoying the beautiful Spring weather while relaxing in the rockers on the front porch. The ice cream is delicious, and the view of the hills and dairy farm is incredible. The staff was patient with the crowd, there is a wide assortment of flavors, and the entire visit was great! Thanks!

I never quite think of an ice cream store as being a "destination" restaurant, but Maple View Farm is just that. My son graduated from UNC earlier today, and surprised his parents with a visit to this amazingly authentic and rustic place. We arrived just before 8:00 pm, as the sun was setting over an adjacent field filled with grazing... More

All sorts of delicious ice cream flavors to choose from and they also sell bottled milk. There is a large picnic type area to the left of the establishment to sit and enjoy your ice cream or one can sit out at the almost wrap around porch with rocking chairs.

TripAdvisor needs increase their rating system for places like this. Long lines are always a great indicator. Line moves along. They do accept cedit cards.

The ice cream is good, no doubt. But who wants to stand in line 30 minutes for ice cream, bothered by flies and annoyed by sticky floors and counter tops? Somebody needs to clean up the place, update the facility to handle the crowds and improve operations!

Delicious ice cream! Family business with friendly staff. Good service and pace even though long line sometimes. Great flavors! Love the porch and shad and rockers. A gazebo or shad in the grassy area would be nice. Beautiful views. Glad motorcycle parking would be extra cool. Great place!!

My wife and I often go here for a quick date. We love to get the Ice Cream and sit out on the rocking chairs and look at the cows nearby. It is always packed on Saturday so if you come be prepared for a line. Today they were making the waffle cones and putting Ice Cream in them right... More

Just getting to Maple View is a pleasure driving through lovely farm country. There is a ubiquitous choice of flavors which makes it difficult to make a selection. Then eating your ice cream on their patio overlooking the bucolic farm meadows is an extra treat.
