Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Kemptville, Canada - Updated 2021

airbnb Kemptville, Canada

Located on a branch of the Rideau River about 53 kilometers (32.9 miles) south of Canada’s capital city of Ottawa lies the small city of Kemptville. Kemptville dates as far back as 1804, when it began to grow from being a tiny forest hamlet into a lumber mill thanks to an enterprising businessman from somewhere in New England. The mill and its surrounding area became a key stop on a road leading from Ottawa, which brought more people into the town. When it came time for a name, villagers selected Kemptville in honor of Sir James Kempt, who was the governor general of upper Canada and had spent time in the area. Today, Kemptville is a thriving municipality powered by its agricultural bounty. Travelers making their way here will no doubt be pleased with the tranquil and steady life that permeates the air. Here are 10 choice Airbnb vacation rentals that you might be interested in for your upcoming trip to the town of Kemptville, Ontario, Canada.
