The Drake Devonshire is the countryside sister hotel of Drake Hotel in Toronto. Here, cityscapes, buzzy streets and hectic nights have been swapped out for fresh air, nature and some much needed Canadian solitude. What’s still the same is the adventurous spirit of the original Drake Hotel. Just like its big flagship version, the ‘Drake by the lake’ hosts exhibitions and exciting art events and aims to be a haven for creatives.

Prince Edward County is perfect for this and the location of the hotel smack in the center of Wellington overlooking Lake Ontario is perfect for a weekend getaway. It boasts awesome biking and cross-country skiing routes, fly fishing spots, golf courses, yoga studios, and water sport facilities at Sandbanks Provincial Park. The space of the hotel used to be an iron foundry.

Come sundown, cozy up by one of the indoor or outdoor fireplaces, sip a glass of wine, and sample the offerings from the farm fresh and lake-to-table menu by Chef Matt DeMille that highlight the amazing local ingredients with a classic twist.

The Drake Devonshire’s eleven rooms and two suites feature uniquely curated artwork and stylish furniture.
