Known for more than 50 years as Sportsman Motel, this once-standard southern Ontario road stop in Prince Edward County was in serious need of an overhaul. Enter two Toronto-based design-savvy wine enthusiasts, Sarah Sklash and April Brown, who bought the motel in June 2016. It took the duo half a year to strip away all of the motel’s Formica, carpeted and dark furnishings. In May, they finally opened the doors of The June Motel, outfitted with beautiful rooms (and a glass of cold local vino on the side). The bonus? It’s pretty affordable.
