Welcome to Creemore
Creemore is a charming little town that sits on the eastern boundary of the Niagara Escarpment, granting it unmatched views of this stunning natural landmark.
Founded in 1842, Creemore was already a thriving village by the beginning of the 20th century. The town’s name is inspired by the phrase croi mor, which means “big heart” in Gaelic – perfectly fitting for a community that is now known as the little village with the big heart.
Creemore is a celebration of rural Ontario living. Its magic is easily felt all over the area and in its lovely, enchanting homes.
