Retreat like an Artist at Canada's Drake DevonshireTwo hours east of Toronto in rural Prince Edward County, the just-opened 13-room Drake Devonshire feels like an artist’s retreat in the woods. An in-house curator taps local and international talents for permanent and rotating art installations, while a mess hall–inspired dining room and a fire pit on the inn’s grassy shoreline add a bit of summer camp nostalgia. Plus, you can dine and drink with views of Lake Ontario.

Drake Devonshire: An Artsy Getaway
A handful of years ago, Prince Edward County hopped onto the radar of the savviest Torontonians. The region, two-and-a-half hours away from Toronto, became a marker for foodies seeking out quality produce and more. It only makes sense that the Drake Hotel would set foot in the region. The original Drake remains the lynchpin of cool on Toronto's west end, boasting an array of events and places to eat and drink in addition to its rooms. Open since fall 2014, the Dev lakeside outpost aims to bring a similar flavor to the countryside in a revamped 19th century building. Its aesthetic is just as playful, with neat design tricks (glassed-in corner fireplaces), cool art, stunning views, a sex toy menu, and a ping pong room (for other kinds of fun).
