“A wonderful place to stay in Port Elgin”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I've stayed at the Windspire Inn on 4 occasions now and have never been disappointed. Jerry and Deb as host and hostess are wonderful and very helpful. Our rooms are spotless, beds comfortable and if you ever need anything, you just have to ask to be pointed in the right direction. Very close to the beach to spend the day and the evening watching the beautiful sunsets and also to the town to get a coffee or browse through some of the great shops. If you don't have much time for a full weeks vacation, the Windspire Inn is your best bet!! Priced right as well!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back yard are quieter. Most beds have new mattresses.

Our family of 5 adults, 1 four year old and 1 two year old had another fabulous week at the Windspire Inn cottage.
Jerry and Deb are always welcoming and helpful in answering any questions we may have and most accommodating in letting us park cars.
The cottage is clean and just waiting for us to relax. It's close to the beach and downtown and the privacy in the backyard is a bonus. The children love the easy access through the split screen door.
Jerry said he ordered our perfect week of sunny weather and we hope he can do the same for our week next year.
Port Elgin has been our family's destination every year since 1974 as the beach is family friendly. We recommend to all that the Windspire Inn is an excellent place to stay.

We arrived to a welcoming smile from Jerry, and excellent suggestions for a good meal after our trip. Using the Windspire as a base for our travels around Bruce County proved one of our smartest decisions. Our room was comfortable, cozy and spotless, and we made use of the lounge to browse our itinerary via free WIFI while sipping a late cup of tea.

In addition to the complete continental breakfast, sharing company with other guests was a pleasant start to the day ... particularly on the lovely front porch. And from there a short walk to the beach to watch the sunset made for a memorable ending to the day, as well.

All in all, a great place to enjoy a summer getaway. We couldn't have asked for more friendly hosts. We hope to get back to the Windspire again.

The Windspire offers a lovely and very comfortable place to stay in Port Elgin. The rooms although small are more than adequate - very clean and nicely decorated, quiet and cozy. The location is perfect for exploring the town on foot and you are only minutes from the beach. We were in Port Elgin for a family reunion so we were able to gather in the lounge to visit. We really were made to feel like it was home. Breakfast in the morning was very fresh and had many choices. We would love to return for a longer visit to take advantage of all that the Windspire has to offer.

We walked into your charming B&B on June 27 to find a very nice smiling face to greet us. I thought I was the most smiling face around, but Jerry, I believe you outdid me!!!

Our stay in your establishment was very comfortable. You trusted us with the house while you were out having dinner. We were very touched by this expression of trust. The house and the room is beautiful, charming and most of all extremely comfortable.

We very much enjoyed visiting with you at breakfast time. The two of you are extremely charming. The next time we are in that area, we will definitely look you up for a peaceful stay on Lake Huron.

Thank you for making our stay in Port Elgin a memorable one.

Sincerely,

Elisabet and Ken

Spent 8 nights at Windspire during the time of my daughter's wedding (late May and early June). Various family members and friends stayed also. We found Gerry and Debby to be excellent hosts. We looked forward to a lovely breakfast every day. The spacious lounge and patio areas were appreciated by us on the rare occasions when we were at a loose end, or just wanted to catch up with the approx 20 members of the wedding party.

Windspire is in a great location - close to restaurants and beach. It is a great base from which to explore the Bruce peninsula.

Spent eight great nights in the lovely Windspire Inn in the company of up to twelve family members and friends who descended on the Port Elgin area for a family wedding. The Windspire was warm, cosy and comfortable and the proprietors Deb and Gerry looked after us very well and were very helpful. It was close to a lovely beach and a short walk from the town. Would strongly recommend it
