Local hotel joins two prestigious groups

2008-02-25, from Member
KNOWLTON – Auberge Knowlton, the oldest operating hotel in the Eastern Township’s, is not one to sit on its laurels. Having been hailed by Fodor’s, America’s leading travel publisher as “Fodor’s Choice… the place to stay and eat” in the area for the past 3 years as well as being featured by travel guides, Ulysses, Petit Futé and Lonely Planet, the Auberge has now aligned itself with the prestigious chain “Auberges du Passant Certifiée” managed by the Fédération des Agricotours du Québec.

The Fédération uses various criteria and certification programs that allow customers to identify the top quality establishments. These certification programs involve a detailed selection process based on tough standards for high quality. In addition to the Auberge having successfully achieved the certification demands of the Fédération, the Auberge’s
Restaurant “Le Relais” has also been designated a “Table aux Saveurs du Terroir” by the group. New in 2006, the “Tables” of the group offer a food service concept that showcases Quebec’s local products.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized by the Fédération des Agricotours,”
enthuses Auberge co-owner Signy Stephenson. “We have been working hard to improve our offering to the public, both in the hotel and the restaurant and to see these things
recognized makes it all worthwhile.”

Also new in 2008 is the Auberge’s membership with Vélo Québec, giving it the right
to promote its offerings to cyclists under the “Bienvenue Cyclistes” banner. This is a result of the “Route Verte” coming through Brome Lake and again a certification program is involved. Lodging next the “Route Verte” is obliged to offer secure, covered storage space for bicycles, supply repair kits and cycling and tourist information plus, if there is a restaurant, healthy food conducive to cycling. To this end, the Auberge is building a secure lock-up for bicycles to be ready for the spring season.

“We’re looking forward to a busy spring and summer with the involvement of these two associations,” says Stephenson, “because in addition to our own promotion, they will be publicizing both the Auberge and the village of Knowlton.”

The Auberge is also a member of Tourisme Cantons-de-l’Est, the Quebec Hotel Association, the Quebec Restaurant Association and the CAA and is an “Ami de la Route des Vins” (CLD Brome-Missisquoi). The Auberge website is: www.aubergeknowlton.ca
