The newly-renovated space is inspired by mid-century motels, and continues the tradition of The Drake reimagining previously used spaces in modern but timeless ways.

Known for creating one-of-a-kind cultural and hospitality experiences, this time the new spot is rooted in retro romanticism.

“Many people tell us about the challenge in booking a room [at the Devonshire] in high season when we are at our busiest, so we are excited to offer additional accommodation with a patented Drake design and cultural template,” said Jeff Stober, CEO and founder of Drake Hotel Properties, in a press release.

The Inn will span over two separate buildings. A terrace, onsite fire-pit, seasonal skating rink, bicycle access, and close proximity to Lake Ontario will encourage guests to enjoy the outdoors just as much as the indoors.

Nearby, you’ll also find vineyards and the revered Millennium Trail.

Perfect for families and groups, the property is also The Drake’s first pet-friendly location with treats and toys for dogs that will also be available in a one-of-a-kind curated vending machine, along with dog beds upon request.

“We look forward to welcoming guests into our wink to yesteryear with all the to-be-expected contemporary accoutrements. We can now say we have on offer two different experiences in one small town,” said Stober.

If you’ve been anticipating visiting the lavender fields in Prince Edward County this year, you’re going to have another sweet place to stay.
