Drake Motor Inn


Accommodation, Feast ON, Ontario By Bike, Rainbow Registered, Family Friendly, Pet Friendly

Vroom, vroom, welcome. Drake Motor Inn, parked just down the street from Drake Devonshire and Wellington’s stunning lakefront, is our nostalgic nod to the classic roadside motel + the modern traveller’s boutique entry point for exploring The County.

Enveloped by Prince Edward County’s famous wine country, our little lodge hosts 12 playful guest rooms and is brimming with curious art + photography installations. Keyless, digital self-check-in makes for breezy arrivals and bon voyages. ‘Woof’ beds are available so your whole family can join this roadtrip (we’re a pet-loving place). 24/7/365, the world’s only Drake vending machine serves guests a most unique, Canadiana assortment of quirky shoppables + edibles. We’ll also help you document your holiday selfies the old school way with complimentary, vintage Polaroids for borrow.

After a long day of zipping from beach to craft brewhouse to farm stand, re-energize back at our communal living room, outdoor terrace + firepit for a round of cards and made-from-scratch Drake Commissary snacks. Come snowflake season, our free skating rink welcomes you to take a spin.

Drive-in. Let the adventure begin.
