Autumn Art and Scenic Stays

Nestled on the edge of the hills of Headwaters is the Town of Erin. This historic town (including the villages of Hillsburgh and Erin) has a lot to offer, with luxurious B&B accommodations, unique art, live music and a rich history. Treat yourself to a stay at the warm and friendly Hillsburgh House by the Pond. Perched at the edge of the Gooderham & Worts Pond, this lovely Bed and Breakfast offers fine accommodations, warm hospitality and travel insight from locals. Dine across the street at Chef Pam’s Fan/Joy Restaurant, serving up inspired farm-to-table food in a warm social setting. With a full belly, hop across the road and take in one of the awesome fall plays at the Century Church Theatre. Rise and shine to a nice breakfast, and hit the road into the Village of Erin for a (second) cup of coffee at the Tin Roof Café, and a browse through the shops along Main Street.

Small Town Views & Autumn Hues

In Headwaters, you will discover quaint towns with histories as rich as their fall colours; explore the culture, shopping and culinary gems of Hockley Valley, Mulmur and Mono. The newly renovated Museum of Dufferin offers a fascinating peek into the area’s rich history of temperance and bootlegging in the newly curated Temperance and Temptation exhibit. While you’re there, explore the True Grit exhibit, chronicling the colourful pioneering spirit of Dufferin County’s early beginnings. With beautiful surrounding grounds, the museum’s walking trail offers a fantastic route to take in fall’s fiery colours. Make the short drive to Violet Hill for a meal at Mrs. Mitchell’s Restaurant, a charming eatery in a historic schoolhouse. Across the way is Granny Taught Us How and Heidi’s Room where you can browse unique home décor, unique fashions and one-of-kind gifts. Give your shopping-laden arms a break, and check in at the scenic Hockley Valley Resort. Unwind and uncork at the hotel lobby bar with a glass of award-winning wine from the resort’s own Adamo Estate Winery. The next morning, wake up to a gourmet breakfast that will set the tone for an indulgent day at the hotel spa or a peaceful hike along the resort’s rolling hills.
