A Revival of Rural Charm

Since the early 1800’s “Old Town” Kemptville was the centre for commerce and activity within North Grenville and the surrounding areas. In recent years Downtown Kemptville has seen a significant revival becoming a destination and a focal point for North Grenville’s art, cultural, and heritage amenities, all spanning our natural waterfront.

With over 160 businesses in the downtown core, ranging from restaurants, cafes, and bakeries to boutiques, salons, and gyms. Downtown is also home to many of our service based businesses who have beautiful office space in the historic buildings lining the river.

Want to spend a day exploring the region? Consider staying close to downtown, and experience the fun to be had in our parks and shopping district.
