Homes for Rent and Property for Sale in Knowlton, Lac Brome


For rent Lac Brome
There are so many reasons to visit Lac Brome, Knowlton, Quebec and twice as many reasons to live here! Centrally located near shopping and recreation without being cluttered with the modern commercial jungle Knowlton, Lac Brome offers some property and rental prospects that are un-matched in the province!

Where else could you find a "for rent" or "for sale" offering that read like a scene from a Victorian novel, such as:

"Our lovely one-level home in Knowlton is again available for rental between the end of October and the end of May (6 to 7 months rental with an option for more). It is located on a short quiet street near the Brome lake and the marina. A tiny neighborhood, where friendly local residents live all year round. It is luxury living for one couple, although a second bedroom offers room for the occasional visitor or another person. Large open living areas with englassed patio doors give the impression of living outdoors. The large confortable bedroom offers his and hers dressing areas and an office area with all conveniences. Our previous tenants are all available to tell you how living in our home not just satisfied them, but how it was instrumental for them to become themselves permanent Knowlton residents and/or home owners. Ideal for Montreal working people, who seek a getaway and weekend retreat from the bustling city. And ideal for business people who will be stationed in the Eastern Townships for the rental period. Rent includes care taker services, snow clearing, Bell Express Vu or Videotron Cable and Internet services, all furnishings and facilities. $800.- monthly, minimum 6 months, maximum 7. "

Now doesn't that sound like a dream? Living in Knowlton can be like a long fuzzy dream where time stands still and the residents seem to exist in a separate era, a time-warp almost, where progress is almost un-welcome and the quiet times are "en vigeur" with only the occasional truck or motorbike passing through the quaint village.

Unlike many cities or large towns, Knowlton and Lac Brome, Quebec, do not exhibt the classic signs of becoming a flourishing and multi-cultural melting pot where cultures and beliefs blend and evolve while creating a commercial atmosphere of thriving business and artistic community.

Instead, according to some residents, Brome Lake is remaining more like the historical two-tiered society of Canada which once divided into the elite and the working class. Of course the growth of Lac Brome has been important in bringing change and new values consistant with modernization and progress yet the local political thrust and the"Silent Majority" have ensured that Lac Brome remains true to a certain vision which keep Knowlton and Lac Brome as a unique place in Quebec.

Knowlton, Lac Brome, Welcomes You
Read the full story here.

An incredible and vibrant arts community is thriving in KnowltonKnowlton, Quebec (Lac Brome) is one of the most beautiful villages in Quebec. Situated in southern region of a region known as The Eastern Townships, this quiet Victorian town is an oasis of natural beauty and cultural diversity known for its diverse festivals, historical charm and laid back atmosphere. A rural setting with just enough cosmopolitan flair, Knowlton is close to all major attractions yet has somehow managed to remain un-spoiled by the development of the surrounding Townships.

Knowlton, Lac Brome, Quebec, os situated on the shores of Brome Lake, the Knowlton area of the town of Brome Lake (Knowlton, West Brome, Foster, Fulford, Iron Hill, Bondville and East Hill),has a combined population of just over 5000.

Within a leisurely drive from Montreal, Knowlton is also close to Vermont and New York State making it a popular spot for the many tourists and visitors who find Knowlton to be a veritable jewel of the region with friendly residents and the right mixture of attractions, restaurants and recreational activities.

The Pettes Memorial Libray in Knowlton is a popular spot to visit!Knowlton's strength is the natural beauty and architecture of the town which dates back to Victorian times. The center of the village has a large green space bordering an old Mill Pond with a flowing waterfall and glorious churches standing magnificently on the banks of the pond. Walking trails lead to the public beach on the shores of Brome Lake where swimmers share the sandy beach with the famous Brome Lake Ducks who have become quite tolerant of people and enjoy getting their picture taken!

Knowlton prides itself in remaining more of a quaint village with art galleries, incredible restaurants, antique stores and variety stores that cater to the eccentric side and are beyond the big stores we see in most towns these days. Small shops and boutiques line the streets and huge green trees create a cathedral overhead for the wide variety of birds, from finches to jays, to sing from.

Horse and carriage sightings are commonplace as villagers enjoy the slow pace of fays gone by!A marina sits on the shores of Brome Lake and several world-class golf courses are within ten minutes of the village making summer a busy time for lovers of the outdoors. Provincial Parks like Mount Orford, Mount Megantic and Yamaska Park are all a short hop from Knowlton and Mount Sutton, Bromont and Mount Glen are ideal places for recreation from hiking and cycling to picnics and canoeing. With so many natural wonders being so close to Knowlton it is becoming a choice travel destination for all visitors to Quebec.

The town museum boasts a large collection of historical artifacts from the region and tracing the heritage of the Eastern Townships wouldn't be possible without considering the importance of Knowlton. The old fashioned corner store is alive and well in Knowlton and a visit to Flannagans general store is like taking a step back in time about 100 years.

The Victorian buildings of the central village are undeniably lovely and a treat for all visitors!With the Big Brome Fair held in the Fall, the Duck Festival, The Festival of lights in the winter and the popular Tour Des Arts it is almost impossible to keep up with the wide range of events in the area.

Beyond the special occasions, Knowlton is a town with a forward thinking and vibrant future. The recently completed Community Center is a testament to the spirit of the residents of the region and the number of active clubs and community groups in Knowlton, from sports to music to visual arts and seniors organizations, is an example of the close-knit spirit the town shares. Life in Knowlton is akin to an era where our grandparents could leave their doors unlocked, knew everyone in the town by name, and said hello to anyone they passed in the streets.

The wonderful new rt in Knowlton is another reasn to explor the region!!

Cathy Cahill: La vie, la mort et les lapins (Life, Death and Rabbits)Cathy Cahill tells us a story, her story, in this series of drawings called La vie, la mort et les lapins (Life, Death and Rabbits). Image: Nous avons visité Mike et Rachel-ils vivaient sur la rue de Yoko Ono. Pencil and oil pastel on paper, 76 X 112 cm.


A succession of sad and happy events unfold in a short space of time. The title of each drawing gives us clues for interpreting the picture. Cathy Cahill’s work is peopled with rabbits, who symbolize reproduction, empathy and vegetarianism and who tell us the tale of a tragic accident, a move, a marriage, a funeral and a pregnancy. The freshness and lucidity of her work is a delight to explore.

Cathy Cahill was born in Montreal in 1972. She has a degree in Art and Art History from the University of Toronto. She lives and works in West Brome with her husband, Todd Munro, who is also an artist.

Cathy has shown in a number of solo and group exhibitions since 1999, including Les Femmeuses in Longueuil in 2006 and Fuzzy at Oakville Galleries in Oakville, Ontario. For more information about the artist, see her website at www.cathycahill.com.

Join us at the opening on Saturday, April 25th at 2:00 pm!

Writers' Out Loud at Brome Lake Books
Read the full story here.

Claire Holden Rothman
The Quebec Writers Federation is very pleased to present a "Writers’ Out Loud" event at Brome Lake Books featuring Montreal author Claire Holden Rothman and her new book, The Heart Specialist based on the life of Dr. Maude Abbot, one of Canadian's first female doctors and a leader in her field.
Photo of Claire Holden Rothman courtesy of Nicholas Seguin.

Montreal playwright Kit Brennan will host the event at 7 p.m. on May 5th at Brome Lake Books, 264 Knowlton Road in Knowlton. Deserts, Coffee, tea or something stronger will be available from the friendly neighbors at Cafe Inn. To reserve a seat please contact Brome Lake Books at 450-242-2242.

Created in 1998, The Quebec Writers Federation works to promote and encourage English-language writing and writers in the community. QWF created “Writers Out Loud” to showcases Quebec’s finest English-language writers from across the province and to bring them to the readers. We are grateful to Brome Lake Books and our other partners for helping to make these events possible.

The Book
Inspired by the life of Doctor Maude Elizabeth Seymour Abbott (1869 - 1940, Montreal), The Heart Specialist is the story of an ambitious woman pursuing her dream at the dawn of the twentieth century. Agnes is stripped of a regular childhood when her father is accused of a horrific crime and abandons the family. Never considered ladylike, she is drawn to the "wrong" things, such as microscopes, anatomy, and dissection, that lead to her finding her calling as a doctor.

Yet despite a rapid rise to stardom in the medical community, she soon finds herself up against the same glass ceiling faced by women in her field. Set against the backdrop of conflict and upheaval permeating the early 1900s, The Heart Specialist is a testament to one woman's triumph in the face of adversity.

The Author
Claire Holden Rothman is a writer and translator. Her work on Le chercheur de trésors won her the 1994 John Glassco Translation Award. She has a BA in philosophy from McGill and a MA in English Literature from Concordia University, and has taught English at Marianoplis College and creative writing at McGill University. Claire lives in Montreal.

Host, Kit Brennan is a faculty member of the Concordia University Theatre Department. Her plays have been published and produced across Canada; they include Tiger's Heart (G. Gordon Shillingford), The Invisibility of Eileen, Hunger Striking (Playwrights’ Coop, Toronto), Spring Planting (NuAge), Having (NuAge, 1999), and Magpie (NuAge, 1999).
