Town of Lake Brome is a perfect blend of everything that is great about the Eastern Townships!

Imagine paddle boarding at sunset through the marshes that feed beautiful Lake Brome or going for a spa treatment and offering yourself a gourmet lunch at the West-Brome Bistro and Spa. Perhaps you’d prefer browsing in one, or all of the 14 antique shops of the Antique Shops Circuit Tour? Maybe you’d like to join the Knowlton walking tour, to learn about our past, our culture and our way of life since the first settlers arrived here from New England in the late 1700s? These are but some of what Town of Lake Brome has to offer visitors from near and far!

For epicureans, savoring Brome Lake’s famous duck dishes in the country-chic atmosphere of the Relais Restaurant Bistro, will certainly be one of the highlights of your stay! The Relais is located inside the historic Auberge Knowlton, the first hotel establishment of the area!

Lake Brome is also part of La Route des Vins and, among others, Léon Courville, Vigneron will have you sample his amazing award-winning wine as you admire breathtaking views of the lake and the mountain ranges of the Eastern Townships.

You don’t have to be a history buff to visit the Brome County Museum! Set inside a series of restored heritage buildings, including a new children’s museum and the Martin annex with its original Fokker aircraft, a true historical jewel, the museum offers entertainment and education for all ages.

For your evenings pleasure, don’t miss taking in a presentation of the Brome Lake Theater Productions. Remember to check their schedule before you arrive to plan your perfect soirée! The Star Café has been gaining the favor of many local and visiting patrons as well, with its delicious family fare and weekend entertainment in a blues-style atmosphere, aside from always serving a great cup of coffee!

What about Louise Penny followers? Town of Lake Brome truly nurtures a passion for its favorite author. You’ll find a collection of fun memorabilia relating to the investigations of Inspector Gamache when you visit Brome Lake Books. A map of the entire region will have fans of the genre use their own deductive skills to discover how the village of Three Pines was built, drawing inspiration from many authentic small towns you might have passed on your way here. In fact, why not join the Three Pines Inspirational Tour?

Finally, end your day by heading to the Knowlton Marina’s bistro and tiki bar for the most amazing sunsets as you relax on their waterfront terrace! Rent a kayak or a paddleboard to get even more in touch with the lake’s soothing waves.
