The tiny community of Wellington, Prince Edward County has a new attraction for out-of-towners, particularly those with dogs and driver’s licenses. Inspired by retro drive-up motels, the Drake Motor Inn is located a few minutes away from the hospitality brand’s first wine country outpost, the Drake Devonshire. Here, mid-century inspired touches – designed in-house by Joyce Lo and Carlo Colacci, co-founders of the Drake General Stores – meet modern amenities in two buildings. Think keyless outdoor check-ins, rental Polaroid cameras and dog beds on request. thedrake.ca/drakemotorinn
