Pembroke Hotels

Standing proud on the banks of the rushing Ottawa River, looking over into Quebec, Pembroke still feels very much like a frontier town. With the vast wilderness of the Algonquin Provincial Park just to the west, this is a place founded on gung-ho spirit and a taste for adventure. Pembroke has maintained a strong, independent cultural identity, where past blurs with present, so there’s plenty of history to explore. It’s also fostered folk music and dance culture over the years.

Things to see

If you’re visiting in the summer months, between May and October, then you won’t want to miss the Champlain Trail Museum and Pioneer Village. It makes an especially good family day out, allowing visitors of every age to explore the inner workings of a Victorian-era pioneer village, complete with a blacksmith’s workshop and schoolhouse. There are more historical discoveries to be made at the Hydro Museum, where you’ll discover the earliest experiments with electricity, brought to life with artifacts and impressive murals. If it’s a wild adventure you’re after, it doesn’t matter what time of year you come: the surrounding wilderness is open for business, whether you’re kayaking down rapids or snowshoeing through the forest. In the evening, why not check out Festival Hall? It showcases the best of local culture, including fiddle orchestras. It also puts on a film festival in September, and has film events throughout the year.
