Two hours from Montreal, near the US border there is this peaceful little place that stole my heart from day one. There is a pier with benches to watch the blue-green lake water and a rustic table to have romantic picnics at sunset. On one side a modest marine with just a few boats. On the other, a crystal clear natural pool surrounded by sailboats. There is also a couple of art galleries, a tennis court with wooden fences, a general store where you can buy homemade cold sandwiches and freshly baked pies, a church built in 1866, a playground and a quiet restaurant overlooking the beautiful lake Menphredmagog. The only thing you need in this place is a good book, and luckily I had one with me.
