Lakeside Motel 4 Hours From Montreal Has A Dream Pool & Terrasse

You don't need to travel far to feel like you're in Florida. Ontario's Lakeside Motel, a four-hour road trip from Montreal, has a waterfront deck and pool that could give Miami a run for its money.

Not only is the motel a unique place to stay, but it's also a little piece of paradise in Prince Edward County.

Once you arrive at your destination, you'll find a large deck with tables, swings, umbrellas, and lounge chairs overlooking Lake Ontario. There's also a sauna, bar and restaurant, fire pits and — the pièce de résistance — a 70-foot pool.

It is important to note that the restaurant and pool are seasonal, which means they close the first week of October. The rest of the terrasse remains open for the month of October with campfires, beverages, hot dogs and s'mores kits still available.

If you want to stay at The Lakeside, you have some options. You can "glamp" in white tents on the grounds, rent one of 11 rooms in the motel or rent one of two small houses near the water's edge.

Rates start at around $200 per night for one of the five tents and go up to about $795 for a house, depending on the time of year.
