With the trees in full bloom and the wineries in full swing, we can’t think of a better way to embrace the warm weather and sunshine than with a romantic weekend in Prince Edward County. From the long stretches of farming fields now green with life to the countless white sand beaches slowly filling up, this little pocket of the province is ready to welcome its summer visitors. And at The June, we’re all about celebrating romance with a twist.
Pre order our couples package online. This package includes a bottle of local bubbly and a special treat from The Truth Beauty Company that you’ll want to save for later on. Hint: Does anything complement couples massages better than chocolate?!
ADVENTURES IN WELLINGTON
After you’ve settled into your room, we suggest heading into Wellington. This small town is home to a few of our favourite spots: The Parlour Studio, OAK Clothing Co and The General PEC. Once you’ve done some light shopping and sight seeing, head to your reservation at East & Main Bistro where you can enjoy luxury comfort food in a charming atmosphere. After dinner, enjoy the sunset together at Rotary Beach!
CAMPFIRE & CUDDLES
Tonight is all about relaxing and rekindling. Grab a bottle of our favourite Rosé and treat yourself to truffle potato chips on our patio to enjoy the nightly campfire. Better yet, order it to the room with our text message concierge service. There, you can throw on a movie, cuddle up and open the box of
romance included in your couples package.
Three words: breakfast in bed. Surprise your S.O. by pre-ordering yogurt parfaits, healthy breakfast cookies and fresh pressed juice to your room. There’s no better way to start the day than sharing local goodies with your person!
WELLINGTON FARMERS MARKET
Wellington hosts a farmers market every Saturday from 9am-1pm on the main street. You can expect to see some of the hottest local food stands, artisan crafters, and a few farmers or producers. This is a fun spot to check out and learn more about the hard working and talented people who give Prince Edward County its glowing reputation. Stock up for the week ahead while you’re there!
We suggest booking a car or bicycle tour in advance so that you can hit up our favourite wineries in the area without worrying about transportation. Pro tip: Plan to go to The Grange Winery around lunch for a locally sourced and homemade goodies basket...nothing says romance like a good ol' picnic!
ROMANTIC DINNER IN TOWN
After all that wine, we know you’ve worked up an appetite. We recommend booking a reservation at Hartley’s Tavern in Picton for dinner. This family owned restaurant has an intimate, candlelit setting and it’s creative menu boasts local protein and produce.
DRIVE IN MOVIE THEATRE
For your last night in the County, we think its best to dial it down to the good old days with a couples classic. The Mustang Drive-In is 15 minutes away from the motel, has 2 viewing screens and a wide variety of late night snacks. So, recline back your seats and enjoy each other’s company under the stars.
BIKE RIDES & BAKED GOODS
After you’ve enjoyed your morning coffee together, borrow our bikes and go for a quick ride to one of Picton’s favourites: the Perfect Lil' Bake Shop. This honour-system bake shop has the best cinnamon scones and lemon tarts in town! If you’re feeling adventurous, extend your ride to Lake on the Mountain and enjoy your well earned treats on one of the picnic benches the over-looking the bay.
Head to Sandbanks Provincial Park or one of our favourite secret beaches to catch some rays before heading back to reality. Don't worry, we know that after this dreamy weekend away you’ll be back soon!
