My husband and I had a party in the area and booked the Drake. Great small hotel very cozy and cute. Amazing staff would definitely stay again. The hotel is very quiet you won't hear door slamming. It has a very cute cottage feeling, had breakfast and great food and service.

Jeff Stober and his team have nailed it. From the moment we returned after a year, we felt comfortable and at home once again. They have managed to balance rural ease (the service is just wonderful) with top of the line sophisticated ambiance, food, and accomodation. Morgan is a treasure at the desk, and Jordan in the restaurant was extremely...

We booked for 2 nights in early November, and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Our room was wonderful, with the right amount of funk and hipness. We arrived on Hallowe'en and were greeted at the door by employees dressed as ghouls, bumblebees, and Slash's steampunk twin brother. Our room was a queen with courtyard view (room 207), and we were pleased...

My wife surprised me with a weekend away. I've never heard of this place before coming here and now I can't stop talking about it. We arrived and got an upgrade as we were originally booked in an accessible room. Although it was cold we got to enjoy our balcony with lake view with our complimentary coffee each morning. My...

We recently spent one night at the Inn. It is a funky eclectic place. Vintage furniture meeting modern elements. Great art. Beautifully situated on the beach. Beautiful inviting public spaces. We were kindly upgraded to a larger room as the inn wasn't full. The one complaint about the room is that the air handling system, obviously a retrofit, is shockingly...

I had never heard of the Drake having a place out in Prince Edward County. A one night stay was gifted to me as a birthday gift from the ladies at work. What a great Inn! Stylish, we'll layer out, beautiful decor and the staff were a delight. The Glass Room had ping pong, and area to just relax. Wonderful...

My sister fortunate to receive a gift certificate to this exception inn. The inn is like no others I have been to. A mix of traditional and modern with touches of contemporary art through out the inn. We have the great fortune to stay in their OWNERS SUITE. Upon entering your breath it taken away by the full window view...

Excellent hotel - top notch service! You have to have brunch there too! Big fan of free coffee and tea all day and all night. We were the only guests at the hotel not a part of a big wedding and they gave us a free brunch to make up for the noise! The free bicycles were a big hit...

A lovely spot for brunch, overlooking the lake. Two of us had avocado toast. The guys had mushroom benny (benedict) and smoked brisket hash, respectively. All delicious. Our server was very professional and a lot of fun. Note: We stayed in Kingston not at the hotel. Just ate here.

Hands down, the best burger I've ever put in my mouth. Ambiance, service and food...top shelf. We didn't stay at Drake Dev but went for dinner, and it was amazing. Make sure you explore the property and have a seat by the Lake. The view is stunning.
