Just down the street from Wellington’s stunning lakefront, Drake Motor Inn is a nostalgic nod to the classic roadside motel for anyone seeking great outdoors, lush views, and modern vibes. As Canada’s only Condé Nast 2020 Hot List Awardee, The Drake delivers character and affordability in spades. Want to learn more? Scroll down!
From your room to the grounds, this quirky and chic little, 12-room lodge brims with curious art and installations. On site, delights abound from the funky murals to the Polaroid cameras to borrow. You'll love the vending machine that dispenses a uniquely Canadian assortment of shoppables and edibles. Keyless, digital self check-in makes for breezy arrivals and bon voyages. Pets are very welcome.
After a long day of zipping from beach to craft brewhouse to farm stand, go re-energize with drinks beside the fire pit. Later on, skip down the street to sister hotel, Drake Devonshire, for dinner with a lakeside view. (We offer Credits to that place, too!)
It’s the coolest spot when the weather is hot. Wellington is nestled on the north shores of Lake Ontario, beside the largest freshwater dunes in the world. The pretty lakefront beach is made up of limestone ledges, which provide natural steps into the water. Right here, too, is the Motor Inn’s upscale sibling, The Drake Devonshire. Stop in for fine lakeside dining, and art as gorgeous as the view. Wellington is also a center point for Prince Edward County’s famous wine country. You can bike to several area wineries from Drake Motor Inn. You’ll find yourself winding home in the long light of evening, half cut, the breeze in your hair, through gorgeous country lanes and hamlets.
