Trip Report Bromont - a perfect getaway

Jump to last reply

We just got back from one of our mini biking/wine tasting getaways to rural Quebec. This time we chose to stay in Bromont, a small ski/golf/biking town about 90 minutes east of Montreal. Bromont may be the ideal vacation getaway - it's got a moderate sized ski mountain for mountain biking and hiking, amazing road biking on the 20+ mile flat, paved Estriade bike path, and 4 golf courses in town. In addition, the town is a somwhat upscale, neat as a pin resort village with plenty of outlet stores, restaurants, and llittle shops. Every store, motel and street looked like it was just freshly scrubbed and landscaped. I know I'm sounding like I work for the chamber of commerce, but I'm amazed that no tourists from the US have discovered this area. Just south of Bromont are miles and miles of mostly flat country roads that are a road bikers dream, sprinkled with wineries, apple orchards, vast farms, and tiny villages. You can park your car in one of these villages and bike for hours, seeing very little traffic. Since we purchased wines at the local vinyards, we wanted to dine at BYOB restaurants. Unfortunately Bromont's only BYOB establishment was closed, so we dined in nearby Granby, Cowansville, and Bedford. Granby is a medium sized city with dozens of restaurants (many BYOB), malls, the trailhead for the Estriade, and the Granby Zoo. Cowansville is a slightly smaller commecial city, and Bedford is a small town 13 miles from the Vermont border with a very good Thai restaurant.
We can't wait until next spring, when we can again visit this touch of France just north of us!
