The June Motel: Prince Edward County, Ontario

The June Motel: Prince Edward County, Ontario

The June Motel is located in Ontario’s stunning Prince Edward County which is just a two hour drive from Toronto. I stayed here as part of a collaboration I did with a clothing brand and I was stupid excited to have had a chance to check out this Instagram worthy stunner in person.

Stepping into the lobby any pre-conceived motel stereotypes are pretty much squashed. This is a motel for the modern day chic millennial although oddly enough I see plenty of families taking up rooms here as well.

Splashes of pink, greenery, succulents,  copper fixtures, a rich leather couch, checkerboard tiles and a neon pink sign that reads “PEACE LOVE WINE” round out the space.  A perfect mantra especially given that each guest is greeted with a complimentary glass of rosé upon arrival.

In addition to the rosé we were also treated to some bar snacks which included truffle chips and a charcuterie board filled with local meats, cheese, artisanal crackers and olives. Available for order as a bar snack you also have the option of ringing this up for room service. I highly recommend you order multiple times because I could probably live off those truffle chips and charcuterie alone.

Like the lobby and bar the room suites are oozing with character and chic details. Wallpaper with bold prints accents each room and cheeky details like “Good Vibes” pillows and mugs emblazoned with “This Might be Wine” are dotted throughout the space.

The Classic Suite features a double bed and the Rosé suite with its pink rose printed walls accommodates up to 4 people with a double bed as well as a bunk bed in a separate area. While clearly geared towards a girl’s getaway it suddenly becomes clear why all the families are here as well as the room easily sleeps a family of four.

Each room comes with complimentary coffee in the form of a Nespresso machine with pods as well as tea. Plenty of wine glasses and mugs are provided staying true to Prince Edward County’s strong wine heritage. I would have like to see some bottled water provided as well although should you get thirsty a jug of water with glasses is available in the lobby. I suppose walking down to the lobby for water can be considered part of the motel charm (or annoyance should you get thirsty for something other than wine at 3am).

Light breakfast options are available in the lobby each morning. A selection of yogurt parfaits, scones, breakfast bars, and cold pressed juices are available for purchase à la carte and everything is supplied by local Prince Edward County vendors.

Seriously though the June Motel did not disappoint.  Other than the lack of water in the rooms pretty much every detail has been taken care of. It also provides an answer to one of the largest problems Prince Edward County visitors often face when it comes to finding scarce accommodation options amongst the solidly booked B&B’s and the show stopping Drake Devonshire Inn.

What makes this place truly special though is that in addition to being a stunning space top to bottom it’s whimsical and cheeky atmosphere makes this just a fun place to be. And isn’t that what a getaway should be?

 

Couple that with free wifi , complimentary yoga classes on weekends, and a fire pit with s’more service in the evenings and it’s no surprise that this place will easily join the ranks of all the other Prince Edward County accommodations and be fully booked months in advance. Now all they need to do is replicate themselves multiple times so we can all stay here.
