Modern, funky design. Clean, comfortable. Minimal amenities as separate from the main Inn. Close (easy walking distance) to street, and local restaurants and the Devonshire Inn and lakefront. Like the complimentary coffee in the morning, wine glasses and corkscrew, mini-fridge. Decent value overall.

Amazing stay at the Drake! Rooms were impeccably clean, and well-appointed! Common areas were nicely designed, and coffee delivery outside each room door (yes, every day!) was a lovely touch. Filtered water/ice refill plus fridge in room, toiletries were lux. Midtown Brewery literally steps away! Make sure to make a reservation at Devonshire a minute walk away, the views of the lake were fabulous, and the property has many cool spaces to lounge after dinner (games room, fireplace inside and out, photo ops, art etc). Staff and service were great, and phone key also super convenient. Plan to drive to see a few things (wineries, Kinsip distillery artisanal chickens (!) check hours for everything as many things not open) many stores on the tiny Wellington strip were closed, but there is lovely Italian Cafe nearby. Also check out Lakeside Inn for outdoor drinks, food, and huge patio with firepits over lake live music. Amazing mini getaway and just what we needed!

Absolutely amazing customer experience. Texting to the staff is truly convenient. It’s just mind blowing when the front desk staff can act quickly within one minute to send items over. Highly recommended for everyone who appreciates arts, outstanding customer service and beautiful scenic view.
