This is a lovely B&B situated on the corner of a restful, impressive garden full of water features, sculptures, plants and greenery.With an eye to the smallest of details, our helpful hosts made sure our accommodations lacked for nothing.Our king bed was most comfortable. While it just fit into the dimensions of the room, the adjoining bathroom was luxuriously large... More

We enjoyed a fabulous stay here. Priscilla was friendly and helpful. She recommended the Woodpecker for dinner...great choice. Room was clean, comfy and all the touches were evident. Breakfast was delightful and was a perfect ending to a great stay. We will definitely be back and will tell all our friends about this gem.

Combination of peace and beauty. Exquisitely remodeled heritage building, very clean and comfortable rooms and a picturesque backyard. Priscilla's warmth and friendliness made this the best home away from home vacation for us. Will definitely go back.

This was my first B&B experience and I have to say it might be hard to top. The owner, Priscilla, was great. Very friendly, accommodating to your stay (we came in very late both nights), and of course the breakfasts were incredible. Perfect way to start a day. The service, food, and just the whole charm of the place is... More

When my daughter began to plan her wedding in Southampton, I began to search for appropriate accommodations for my family (81 year old Mother, my sister and her husband and my son and his Fiancée). The Silken Retreat far exceeded its amazing reviews and let me explain why. Not only is the inn and its grounds beautiful and immaculately clean,... More
