8 Gorgeous New Places to Rent in Prince Edward County
From PEC mainstays like The Drake Devonshire and The Ferg to hot new additions like The Edward and The June Motel, there's no shortage of aspirational accommodations on the island. But come peak season, it can be tough to snag a night (let alone a long weekend) without booking weeks in advance. Our advice? Keep an eye out for the new listings on Airbnb: in the summertime, there's a near-constant influx of new rentals on the market, each one seemingly even cuter than the next.
Here are eight new additions to the PE-scene that have caught our eye—book 'em before word gets out!
PRAISE BE. Want to stay the night in a light-soaked, 1800s church-turned-B&B? Yeah, us too. Lovingly restored by photographer Tara McMullen, this 1400-square-foot sanctuary is a serene escape five minutes from Wellington. Midcentury modern furniture, gargantuan fiddle-leaf figs, and an inky-black tub in its own nook? Now that's our kind of place of worship.
Safari tent? Check. Bunkhouse? Check. Outdoor shower? Check. This glamping getaway in Milford a little off the beaten track, but it's all part of its appeal. With panoramic lake views, a fire pit, and an outdoor kitchen (!!!), it's the ideal hub for a girls' weekend or family retreat. Dine al fresco in the gazebo, pop a bottle of PEC's finest and toast s'mores under the stars.
Got tiny-house dreams and a tiny-ish budget? The Rustic Loft Suite is a converted barn with all the fixin's: TV, AC, and an Australian Shepherd puppy named Pylon that we hope stays a puppy forever and ever. This cabin is perfect for a couple who want to get off the gridlock for a night or two and don't mind close quarters.
Play King of the Hill[ier] in this Scandinavian-style cabin overlooking a vineyard. The photos really don't do this baby justice—from its striking black exterior to the minimalist loft bedroom, this tranquil retreat is the perfect spot to recharge, reset, and—I don't know—write a poem or something.
Price: $199 ($285 on weekends)
5. THE SIMEON
With tiles reminiscent of Lisbon streets, Pinterest-worthy wallpaper and some serious lamp game, The Simeon is a low-key rental for a group of pals (or maybe a couple of couples) looking to get comfy in the county. Bright, airy and beautifully appointed, it's the kind of place you could stay awhile (alright, live. We want to live there).
Sleeps: 4 (although the comments say 6?)
Price: $185/night ($225 on weekends)
6. THE CANYON
Heading to the county with literally everyone you know (oh you friendly, huh?)? Check out The Canyon—a Palm Springs-ily decorated rental house that sleeps 10-17, so you have no excuse for your friend who wants to bring his Tinder fling (sorry). Centrally located in Picton, it's a quick drive to the Sandbanks and close to shops and bars, plus there's a sweet back deck and BBQ for nights in.
Sleeps: Up to 17
Price: $350/night (but could go up the more people you squeeze in)
This 1900s farmhouse is outfitted with 21st-century touches: a glass room dividers, a modern wood-burning stove, and an all-white kitchen for whipping up county-fresh creations. But the real selling point is the view—sprawling kelly-green fields as far as the eye can see (best admired through the picture window with a glass of Pixie rosé).
They had us at the neon-pink Acapulco chairs (millennials, eh?). PR agency Pomp & Circumstance just opened this boxcar beauty at the Grange winery, complete with plant wall, loft bed and all the wine (cause that's what happens when you literally set up camp in a vineyard). With everything you need all tucked into one tiny home, you can play IRL Polly Pocket surrounded by alcohol, AND bring your dog. This is known as 'the dream', folks.
