About

Headwaters is more than a location, it’s a state of mind.

Headwaters is a place where peace and quiet, and fresh country air let creators create. It’s where barns and outbuildings serve as recording studios and painters’ ateliers, where photographers capture local scenes that inspire gallerists around the world.

We invite you to explore the Headwaters. Come for a drive, bring your bike or a comfortable pair of hiking boots. Stay for a while, explore our small town main streets, meet the locals.

But a word of caution. Beware of the windows in real estate offices. So many of our neighbours started by coming up from the city for just a day or two, happened by a real estate office, did the mental math, and well, next thing you know, they’re our neighbours. Not that anyone’s complaining…
