A few months ago my sister-in-law asked if she could take our daughters camping for a weekend this summer. My husband & I decided that we would try & go somewhere for a little relaxation for a few days & not join them. It just so happens to be our Anniversary as well, a little romance...yes please!
My first thought was staying at a Bed & Breakfast we visited a few years ago in Bloomfield ON. It turns out the owners recently became parents & are taking a break from hosting. A few days passed & then I was flipping through an issue of House & Home Magazine. I saw another option in the same area. The feature was on Kate Golding
The Inn had recently done a makeover on a few of the rooms and it looks great. I called to see if they had availability & to my surprise they were booked until October! I then proceeded to check every hotel & airbnb in the area with no luck. This place is wine country so all the city folks come here to chill & drink on the weekends. I told my husband I would check some places in Montreal, a short train ride away. We went there on our Honeymoon & haven't been back in 14 yrs. Turns out that it's the same weekend as the jazz festival & a comedy festival. Therefore, no rooms or places to rent. My next thought was Toronto, my husband commutes there a few days a week so really not much of a holiday.
Still imagining us enjoying lunch at The Drake as we had a few summers ago, I didn't think Prince Edward County was going to happen. But then the stars aligned & magic happened! I met a friend for brunch & she mentioned that she had booked a room in a new place that is just opening up. The motel was just remodelled & has all the mid-century goodness I love, & wasn't going to break the bank. I checked their website & it turns out they were having a grand opening party/open house the same day I booked our room. If I had waited a few days, our dates would have probably been taken as there is only a few suites available.
So this place used to be decorated in a Fisherman theme, it's all girly now! The new owners are re-inventing the motel experience & the place has a boutique feel. Eight weeks until I'm sipping cocktails at the bar. I need to add that those barstools are stunning! A little Palm Springs in Canada, I'll take it.
