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

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

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
