This lovingly restored Victorian house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable - all 3 rooms have a private bathroom. The beds were excellent and everything was squeaky clean. Every tiny detail has been considered, right down to a wine fridge and coffee/tea station on the landing. Breakfast both days was delicious, abundant and beautifully served in a dining room with...

This was our first B & B experience, and it was great in every way. We found Silken Retreat online and booking went very smoothly. Because of the pictures online we decided to have a nightcap in their garden as opposed to a pub on the main st. Port Elgin and South Hampton offer a very picturesque location with a... More

On our wedding day, we were invited to have our pictures taken in there beautiful garden. The grounds were well taken care of,the hosts were very helpful, and offered to let us use different sets to have our pictures taken. For a romantic getaway, minutes from a beautiful beach, complete with a train ride, or a nice long walk on... More

First experience at a Bed and Breakfast and it was incredible. Pricilla & Ken was so hospitable and room was outstanding. Loved the swing on the porch and garden was beautiful. I highly recommend Silken Retreat to anyone looking for a perfect getaway. We were in the McClung Room. Looking forward to going back.

I stayed here in the Cavell Room this past May 1st to 3rd weekend for business and was anxious to see if this place lived up to the hype. IT DID. Priscilla and Ken's B&B has been gorgeously and lovingly renovated and shows extremely well. I toured all the rooms which were large, airy, clean and extremely comfortable - a... More

Silken Retreat was a wonderful experience. The rooms are immaculate with every immenity you will need. Priscilla's breakfasts were beautifully presented and delicious. The grounds and verandah were an unexpected treat.

My wife and I spent a night at Silken retreat and loved everything about it. We stayed in the McClung room with a comfy king bed and large well appointed bathroom. The whole house is spotless and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was awesome. What I enjoyed the most was spending time with Priscilla and her help with planning sightseeing and... More

It will be hard for any place to compare to Silken Retreat tho I'm sure! We were there for our 27th anniversary and had just the best time! Priscilla was so helpful with telling us about the town, the sites, the history of the home and the breakfasts were incredible. We had no idea what to expect breakfast wise and... More

My husband and I go to Port Elgin every August to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Each year we enjoy culinary delights in our favourite restaurants, we soak up the rays on an awesome beach and take in the unsurpassed beauty of Georgian Bay's sunsets. With each passing year, and each visit, new memories are made. Last year we happily discovered... More

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
