With stupendous views of Lake Ontario and surrounded by gorgeous countryside, this rural, hip outpost is the perfect spot for communing with nature. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get your culture fix too; the property is dotted with art as gorgeous as the scenery. It’s little wonder The Drake is a Hospitality Design Awards' Best in Show and Best Boutique Hotel winner. We’re already plotting our summer escape. Scroll below for more.
Kick back at this lakeside cabin inspired by summer camp and nestled in beautiful and historic Prince Edward County. The Drake Devonshire, a 13-room hotel, restaurant and bar is just about the coolest rural getaway there is. The all-season retreat ticks every box, with gorgeous scenery, stunning art installations, and cultural programs and events. The James Beard-award-winning menus at the eponymous restaurant represent the bounty of nearby farmers and vintners. We love the community: Travelers, culture seekers and neighbors all seem to happily intersect here to enjoy thoughtful contradictions of new and old, rural and urban, and sweet and savory. Did we mention the lake views?
Countryside retreat meets city culture in Prince Edward County. Known for its good food, bountiful vineyards, and a thriving arts scene, there's always something to do. Relax on some of Canada's most stunning lake beaches, including Sandbanks Provincial Park and Wellington Beach. For the adventurous types, the region offers every water sport imaginable plus golf at Wellington on the Lake, walleye fishing in Lake Ontario, and yoga and pilates classes right at The Drake. Drink up the pristine landscape at nature sites like Lake on the Mountain Park and Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory, or even stroll through the fragrant local lavender fields.
