The June Motel at Sauble Beach
The June Motel has two locations, one in Prince Edward County and its newest addition in Sauble Beach. The second and more recent location in Sauble Beach embodies the idea of the good ol’ days and enjoying the simple things in life. The motel is designed with the 1970’s in mind to create a retro beach town vibe for its guests, with pink doors, neon signs and a rosé state of mind.
“Motels, with their flashy neon signs, bright doors and retro Solair chairs, are the epitome of North American culture–and they’re ready to make a comeback, if we have anything to say about it!,” says Sarah Sklash and April Brown, Moteliers at The June.
The June Motel was created by two motelier best friends, April Brown and Sarah Sklash who met while attending the University of Western Ontario. Together they share a passion for traveling, discovering new destinations and wine. They express their love for wine throughout their motels in their merchandise, creative designs seen around the building and in their lounge and check-in areas where you can sip rosé and enjoy your stay as they intended.
In 2016, April and Sarah quit their jobs in the city and embarked in the world of motels together, where they purchased their first reno-project and transformed it into something beautiful. It is clear that they have been quite successful in their journey because they have an entire Netflix show dedicated to them and the process of finding, renovating and decorating their next motel.
Motel Makeover: On Netflix
Motel Makeover is a six episode Netflix series that premiered on August 25th, 2021. It follows April and Sarah on their journey to create and renovate the second installment of The June Motel, in Sauble Beach.
