Knowlton, the picturesque village in the Eastern Townships
, voted by L'Actualité Magazine as one of the prettiest towns in Quebec, is the commercial and cultural center of the
Town of Brome Lake.
Only 100 km from Montreal, Knowlton is the ideal holiday destination, in both summer and winter with its lake, public beach, marina, golf courses, walking paths and nearby ski hills.
The village is well-known for its many boutiques and antique dealers, restaurants and cafes, country inns and B&Bs. Knowlton is also a bilingual village with its residents and business owners as comfortable in English as in French.
Located on the "Wine Route" that meanders through the countryside, Knowlton is the ideal place to stop, before or after your trip and savour a glass of regional wine at one of its many restaurants. The village is also part of the Townships Trail, a route that highlights the region's built and natural heritage throughout the Eastern Townships. The various locations reveal stunning scenery and our heritage, which reflects both American and British influences.
The village also boasts many interesting events that occur throughout the year for the enjoyment of tourists and residents alike. The newest lavender farm in the Eastern Townships is located in Knowlton, as is the charming BCHS country museum and Theatre Lac Brome.
Voted in 2007 by The "Weather Channel" as the 4th of the top ten leaf-peeping destinations in North America..."The area has been a summer getaway of the rich for ages, but those “in the know” know that autumn is a spectacular time to visit local towns like Knowlton and North Hatley." With a recommendation like that, how can one resist Knowlton ?
