My friend and I booked two rooms with Priscilla and Ken and were not disappointed. We were in the Port Elgin area for a wedding and our hosts couldn't be more helpful, understanding that we needed to access our rooms early to get ready for the wedding. Their place is even prettier than the photos show and combines old country... More

My husband and I were roaming the Saugeen shores recently, when we discovered this charming B&B in Port Elgin. As luck would have it, a room was available and we booked it for that same night. We were treated like VIP's from the moment we arrived until our waves goodbye the next morning. The grounds are beautiful, the room was... More

I was booked to stay here for business and was pleasantly surprised. I don't usually stay in a B&B when traveling for work because I like privacy and quiet - but I was happy to find this was very private. Priscilla was a wonderful host. My room was lovely with a fantastic bathroom. It had everything I needed and breakfast... More

We chose Silken Retreat as a stop on our tandem biking excursion of the Bruce Peninsula. We are so thankful we chose to stay here. This is a 5 star, everything you could ask for B&B! Priscilla greeted us warmly and showed us around her grand house. Our room (McClung) was luxurious! We soaked in the jacuzzi tub and enjoyed... More

We've been going to Port Elgin for the past three years and were lucky enough this year to find the Silken Retreat B&B. We were greeted warmly and made to feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The website is nice but doesn't do the room justice. The McClung room has everything you could ever want. Priscilla has... More

Wanted to get away for a night and have never been to a B & B. Heard many good things about Port Elgin and Silken Retreat. We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful, clean and has everything you would ever want. Tea, coffee station, fridge, wine cooler and computer. Sitting on the porch, sipping on a glass of... More

We spent the best part of two days & one night in Port Elgin, exploring the waterfront, the downtown shopping & restaurants. Our stay at the Sil-Ken Retreat was welcoming, friendly & comfortable, and breakfast was fantastic. Priscilla made us feel right at home and gave us the run of the place, including the huge yard that features deck areas,... More

Our group of five stayed for 3 nights at Sil-Ken Retreat during the Huron Birding Festival this May. The location was ideal for visiting MacGregor Point Provincial Park and then walking to local restaurants on our return at the end of the day. Priscilla was a wonderful host, and the accommodations and amenities were perfect in every way. Everything you... More

Complimenting the beauty of the Lake Huron shores,is this perfectly located Bed and Breakfast. The totally renovated house is loaded with antiques, and charm. The yard is welcoming and peaceful. The rooms are clean, the breakfasts superb. The owner is well versed in the attractions of the area and more than willing to assist with any and all of your... More
