Drake Devonshire Boutique Design Hotel in Wellington on Lake Ontario, Canada
Set directly off the main street of Wellington, amid a burgeoning community filled with some of the best wineries, shops, and restaurants in Canada, the Drake Devonshire and the Drake Motor Inn are sister properties offering unique accommodations at the gateway of Prince Edward County.
Perched on the edge of Lake Ontario, the Drake Devonshire is an all-season rural getaway that celebrates the warm, quirky charm of a historic country home—yet one that is adorned with sleek, bold, and modern design in every corner. This is an art-filled, inspiring world of black, white, and natural woods augmented by bright splashes of color and patterns throughout. A cheeky nod to “rustic Canadiana”, the 13-room boutique hotel, with a restaurant, bar, and beautiful event areas—including a large, barn-like space with an indoor/outdoor fireplace and cozy vintage furniture—welcomes guests with uninterrupted views of Lake Ontario and a living room fireplace that sets the tone for relaxation and inspiration.
The hotel’s stunning art installations—such as a breathtaking, multilevel piece by artist Kristen Hassenfeld—cultural programs, and menus that represent the bounty of nearby farmers and vintners add creative flair and local flavor to this one-of-a-kind Wellington, Ontario retreat. Especially appealing to the nostalgic at heart is the Drake Motor Inn, a pet– and family-friendly nod to the classic roadside motel, and a modern traveler’s boutique entry point for exploring the county—located just a few blocks from the Drake Devonshire.
Enveloped by Prince Edward County’s famous wine country, the 12-room lodge is brimming with curious art and photography installations and offers guests complimentary Polaroids for “vintage” selfies. A communal living room, an outdoor terrace and firepit, and a skating rink round out a timeless and history-rich adventure.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
