Sauble Beach, a lakefront community a few hours outside of Toronto, is about to be the focus of a new Netflix show. Motel Makeover, a six-episode series about the recent renovation of Sauble's June Motel, premieres August 25.

The show stars June Motel co-founders April Brown and Sarah Sklash, who quit their day jobs to renovate an old motel into the fancy spot it is today.

A synopsis on Instagram reads, "Motel Makeover is a 6 episode series that follows us chasing the Millennial dream, shrugging off our secure but boring desk jobs to be our own bosses, and transform a dingy roadside motel in Sauble Beach into the June.⁠"

Neither Brown nor Sklash had any motel or renovation experience prior to founding the June. Brown told BlogTO, "I think it's a very fun and uplifting show that hopefully inspires other people to pursue their dreams and go after the things that really excite them."

There are two June Motel locations: the Prince Edward County location opened in 2017, and the Sauble Beach location followed in 2020. If this new Netflix show inspires you to book a visit, you're going to have to wait: both locations are booked through the end of September.
