“Best place to stay in Port Elgin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We were looking for a nice Bed & Breakfast in Port Elgin, and came across the Windspire Inn. Very happy with the service and accommodations here. The decor has a nice old school feel, yet very modern at the same time.

Immediately welcomed by Jerry with a warm smile, and great conversation! Continental breakfast was perfect with some home-made touches of delicious goodies. The room was perfect, and had a private bath. Great location, within walking distance of not only the beach and marina, but downtown (restaurants and shops).

Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family and will be back in the near future!

Thanks so much Deb and Jerry! Great job at making us feel welcomed :)

We go to Port Elgin quite often and this is the only place we stay, you can’t beat the location! This Inn is only 2 blocks from the beach which is really important on those long summer weekends where you can’t find parking at the beach.

There are 2 great verandas, one in the back garden and one out front which makes it nice to sit and have a glass of wine at the end of the day and because of its location it is really easy to walk up town for dinner.

Breakfast is offered everyday with a multitude of choices (coffee, juices, bagels, muffins, hot and cold cereals, hard boiled eggs, fruit… etc.). The breakfast room is very spacious and airy, a nice contrast to the cramped quarters we often find in chain hotels.

Since Deb and Jerry took over they have updated the place, new beds, new furniture in the lounge area etc. I can’t say enough how happy I am to have a comfortable bed to sleep in. Also, there is Free WiFi, a large fridge and microwave for guests. The place is air conditioned which is great on those hot summer days! If you are looking for a clean, quiet and comfortable place to rest after a day of swimming, this is the perfect place.

Room Tip: We love the rooms that look over the garden.

Our weekend in Port Elgin at the Windspire Inn was everything we expected and more. This beautifully decorated home has the warmth and charm of a period house while offering all the modern-day amenities. The owners, Jerry and Deb make you feel at home the moment you walk through their door. We enjoyed our stay at the Windspire Inn so much that we consider it our home-away-from-home. We look forward to our next visit.

We had occasion to visit Port Elgin on our way further into the Bruce Peninsula. The Windspire was a great spot, a little like an inn and a little like a B and B. All in all, a great choice. Jerry and Deb were very friendly,more than accommodating, and served a lovely continental breakfast. The Inn is close to downtown and a short walk to the beach. There is a very nice trail to follow along the water, which was very convenient and enjoyable. We felt very much at home at Windspire and would definitely recommend it to others.
