What to do when in lake brome this winter
The town of Lake-Brome attracts sports lovers as much as cocooning enthusiasts with its lake, inns, antique shops, boutiques and coffee shops. I can’t wait to tell you all about this lovely little part of the country! Here are my addresses to places you must visit as well as some of my favourite activities to do during the wintertime.
The joy of skating
The skating rink at Douglass Beach brings fitness and beautiful landscapes together. Spend a day strolling around, performing spins and arabesques or recreate scenes from the movie Frozen with your kids!
The first edition of the Polar Beach Party will be held next February 11. The event is sure to be a lot of fun for everyone with its animated Hawaiian theme, music, inflatables and much more.

Note that you can rent a cabin and equipment on site.

Where to find warmth and comfort
Because of its proximity to Bromont, montagne d’Expériences, the town of Lake-Brome is perfectly indicated for your après-ski or for brunch before hitting the slopes.
Buzz Café is a must for a great cup of coffee, a sandwich, a quiche or a sweet delicacy. A feel-good ambiance that will warm your hearts.
