Another day trip, this time we went for a drive up to Frelighsburg QC. The region is historically recognized as part of the Eastern Townships.

The small village of Frelighsburg, about one hour from Montreal and 2.5 miles from the Vermont border, houses about 1,000 people. The community is filled with old buildings (including an old grammar school from 1856) and surrounded by apple orchards.

Frelighsburg is not big, but there is much to see, to taste, and to shop, whether it is to eat, to go to the farm, to search in the antiques, or to shop.


We did have lunch at ” au 2 clochers “, the food was excellent. It is a more pub restaurant with rustic decor and a pretty garden in front. The best seats in the house are on the large terrace overlooking the little river.

Oneka sells natural and environmentally friendly products made from flowers, leaves, and forage roots in the surrounding forests or cultivated on the owner’s farm.  Another historical brick structure.

Upon returning home, we stopped at Dunham, not far from Frelighsburg.

Located about six miles from Canada and the US border, Dunham holds several little secrets and is home to one of the most luxurious sugar shacks in southern Quebec.

Today, the town is occupied by people who visit antique stores, restaurants, and more.

If you like handmade items, you can find a store with all kinds of beautiful stuff from jewelry to painting.
