I recently came from a mother-daughter trip to a popular hotel called June Motel and it was beautiful. You might have seen their motel on the new Netflix series called Motel Makeover. I stayed at the Prince Edward Country location which was about a two hour drive.
I packed my Weekender Duffle for this short trip and it held everything I needed except my toiletries. I definitely overpacked but I packed last minute but I wasn't going on a plane so it was fine. It was supposed to rain the whole time so I brought tracksuits, jeans, a bathing suit and leggings and a few tops.
Check-in was contactless and they texted me my lock box code and my room number before I left my house. We stayed in the Rosé Suite and got the Self Care package. The total for the room for 2 nights was $941. The Self Care Package includes a bottle of rosé, a charcoal face mask, facial oil and facial mist. In hindsight, I realize now you’re supposed to add water to the mask. The Prince Edward County location does not have a pool or a restaurant, but the Sauble Beach location does. There is a fire pit and breakfast items though at Prince Edward County.
There were a lot of restaurants in the town located about 5 minutes way from the motel. Most of the restaurants close early, around 9pm and are not open Tuesday to Thursday. Our second day at the motel we got breakfast at the Lighthouse Restaurant, and ate dinner at Acoustic Grill. The steak and eggs for breakfast were amazing and the french toast was even better. For a meal for two, the total cost was $55 including tip. At Acoustic Grill we tried the "Best Burger in Town" and yes it was. We also had some deep fried pickles and soda made in the town. The patio closes at 9pm and the dining closes at 11pm. The total cost was $78 including tip.
On our last day we had breakfast at the Drake Devonshire in Bloomfield. It was a 20 minute drive from The June Motel. I had the BEST chicken and waffles I've ever had in my life, paired with a glass of OJ. Not to mention it came with a beautiful view of the water. The total for our meals was $78 including tip.
We headed to a distillery called Kinsip. It was $15 per person, which included 3 samples and a cocktail. I loved all of my samples, but wasn't a fan of my drink. I tried a sample of vodka, gin and liqueur. It was my first time ever doing a tasting and I had fun.
Sandbanks Beach was 20 minutes away from the motel but 15 minutes away from Kinsip. It requires a reservation in advance to enter, although I didn't see anybody checking for permits. You can book up to 5 days in advance and there is a $21 fee for a Daily Vehicle Permit (DVP).
