The June Motel

Picton, Ontario

Nestled between Prince Edward County’s rolling vineyards and the sparkling shore of Picton Bay, this retro-revived motor lodge captures the hearts of both laid-back locals and wine-loving wanderers. The 16-room boutique motel radiates retro-chic, with bright and airy rooms featuring bubble gum-pink doors, funky floral wallpaper, oversized Solair chairs and other mid-century modern touches.

Upon arrival, sip on a complimentary glass of rosé and admire the Instagram-worthy indoor-outdoor lobby with its “Peace, Love, Wine” neon sign, bohemian furnishings and rose-gold rotary dial phone. Indulge in yoga on the manicured lawn every Saturday morning during the summer, and spend your nights roasting s’mores by the fire pit underneath a star-filled sky. Rates from $180.
