Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
At the intersection of the Townships Trail and the Brome-Missisquoi Wine Route, encircling the lake of the same name and now grouping together seven villages, the Town of Brome Lake reflects the true meaning of a resort destination and the art of living. The elegant Victorian village of Knowlton, the largest in Lac-Brome, is famous for its Loyalist roots and outstanding built heritage. Auberge Knowlton prides itself on being the oldest inn in the Eastern Townships, in operation since 1849. The luxurious houses located along the edge of the lake, the Historical Society’s museum and children’s museum, and the heritage tour are reminiscent of the prosperity of yesteryear and an Anglophone past. The village core, which is decorated with lights every December, features a waterfall in Coldbrook Park; a variety of restaurants, including the picturesque Star Café, a Café de Village; gift and antique shops; Theatre Lac-Brome featuring English- and French-language performances; and many events. Agricultural tourism is also prevalent, with both the renowned Brome Lake Ducks farm and a vineyard. In the surrounding countryside are small attractive farms and scenic rural roads that can be explored by bike.
