Tours run daily in the summer: Monday - Saturday at 11am & 2pm and Sundays at 11am. $10/adult, $8/seniors & students, kids under 10 are free. Tours are about 45 minutes long. Sweatshirts are recommended (our icehouse is 28 degrees fahrenheit).

We had a lot of fun on the tour and learning the connection between Cape Pond Ice and the movie The Perfect Storm. Who knew? Scott was so funny. It would have been fun if a ship had come to get ice while we were...More
