Check Out the June Motel Co-Owner’s New Retro Lakeside Retreat

When April Brown opened the June Motel in Prince Edward County with longtime friend Sarah Sklash, the project required their undivided attention. The business partners often stayed up late serving guests wine, crashed in the residence above the lobby and woke up first thing to serve breakfast. It was a labour of love and, after two years, April decided it was time for some work-life separation. Her housing search led her to a petite, two-bedroom bungalow on Lake Consecon. The bare-bones interior wasn’t impressive, but April was sold on the sweeping waterfront vistas and proximity to work. For the redesign, April borrowed from the June’s retro ethos without committing to all-pink-everything. The best part: Sarah’s place is a short canoe trip across the lake, making impromptu business meetings a breeze.
