Top 3 Quinte West Neighbourhoods for the Millennial Homebuyer

Like Belleville, Quinte West has become an attractive area for the millennial homebuyer — and no wonder. With average home prices well under $300,000 and a landscape that mixes the best of rural and urban living, the reasons for putting down roots here are many. For one, this city of 43,000 sits on a gorgeous stretch of the Bay of Quinte at the mouth of the world-famous Trent-Severn Waterway. For another, it has a strong and vibrant economic base ...

Top 3 Belleville Neighbourhoods for a Homebuyer

Though millennials are expected to account for up to 35 per cent of home sales this year, it’s no secret that many are getting priced out of red hot housing markets like Toronto’s and are looking further afield for their dream homes. One place they’re looking in increasing numbers is Belleville, where average home prices are around $300,000 and the amenities rival any in Ontario. Seriously, where else will you find 1,200 kilometres of water-front near your doorstep for ...

The Woodsmen Trailer Review By Caitlin

Hello everyone, my name is Caitlin and for me, reviewing something categorized as horror was a little bit out of my comfort zone. Usually, I review Disney Channel movies and shows for my Youtube Channel which is basically the polar opposite to the horror genre. But I was so excited to see what all the hype around The Woodsmen was about that I had to watch it. The first thing that caught my eye in both of The Woodsmen trailers ...

Culture and Connection in Tyendinaga

Earlier this week I met up with Tyendinaga community member Karissa Maracle at The Tyendinaga Mohawk Landing Site. Karissa or Yehnentewaks (her Mohawk name), has lived on the reserve her entire life, leaving home only to study away at University. We spoke about why she made the choice to return home, her culture and how she plans on applying what she’s learned in school towards her new position as one of Ohahase Education Centre’s newest teachers. MK: What does living ...

The Quinte Tennis Club

A few weeks ago Monika and I got the chance to head down to the Quinte Tennis Club and talk with their head manager, Mike Bowen, all about the club. What I found to be most interesting about Quinte Tennis is the sense of community that it has. They have members that come from about an hour and 45 minutes away to play and others that bike there almost every single day. As a member, you’re trusted with the combination to the gate ...

Photography and the Notion of Home

Belleville has always been my home, it’s a place that is comfortable to me and a place where I feel most at ease. Having been living in Montreal for the past three years, I began reflecting on how our home can shape us as individuals. I started thinking about the differences between two environments and how leaving home can affect behavior within them.  My most recent year in a fine art program was a reflection of that and the ...

The Vile Bodies to play Rockfest 2017

The Vile Bodies is a lo-fi rock and roll revival act with its roots in Belleville’s Downtown. I met with band members Rory Kyte, Elliott Gould, Mike Faires, Chandler Betteridge, and Dylan Hendrick during a band practice to discuss what the region has meant to them. M: You’ve all left the area at one point or another and ended up coming back. What is it that’s brought you back to the Bay of Quinte Region? VB:  Dylan started living here ...

Moon Sugar for Rockfest 2017

Quinte West locals Moon Sugar describe themselves as a Party/Dance band. I sat down with the group in their practice studio, a quaint house located in Carrying Place to talk about their experiences with genres, Rockfest, and the region they call home. M: Tell me a little bit about how you guys ended up in this current group/genre? MS: A few of us went to high school together. Sean has a recording studio here, so when the other fellas came to record ...

Last Chance Marie on Music in the BOQ

Last Chance Marie has been making music in the Bay of Quinte region since 2007. After a temporary pause for post secondary education in New Brunswick, the group has reassembled with a tweaked roster and a new rehearsal space: a Church that Tayson Ingersoll, the band’s lead singer attends. I met with them there to get their perspective on how the region has evolved, and to find out where bands go to eat on the Bay. M: Having the experience ...
