Kemptville

Green and Growing

    Ideal For

    Kemptville is a small town rich in everything you want. Escape the city and experience a historic downtown, nature trails, waterfront parks, and so much more!

    Best Features

    Ottawa is a 30-minute drive from Kemptville, so you can still experience downtown life, but you’ll find housing prices that are as much as 25% lower than in the city.

    Considerations

    You’ll find a lower cost of living in Kemptville, but the tradeoff is a lengthier commute. The drive along the 416 into Ottawa can be slow during rush hour or when inclement weather hits.

History

The small town of Kemptville began to emerge in the early 19th-century when Lyman Clothier built a mill and two houses. Lumber from the mill allowed for the construction of dwellings all over the area. The name Kemptville was adopted in 1829, and the first map was produced in 1830.
