“MUST STAY! Beautiful B & B with garden and grounds perfectly maintained!” The house is newly renovated, rooms and common areas absolutely spotless. The house has kept the "Olde World Charm' just as advertised and brought in all the new world conveniences and amenities. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate available 24-7, free internet, walk around the grounds with lovely fountains in the gardens, in an excellent location with the feel of the quiet safe neighborhood. Ken was the friendliest, most helpful host and woderful chef, the breakfast was delicious! If you can think of anything that was missing...not that we could, just ask! We will definitely be back when in the area

We spent two nights at Silken Retreat for our 30th anniversary in September. It was by far our best B & B experience to date. The home and gardens are lovely. Priscilla is a wonderful host and her breakfasts are both delicious and nutritious. We enjoyed our chats about the history of the home and the work she and Ken put into making it a beautiful and relaxing spot. It truly was a labour of love. The name says it all, it's a relaxing retreat right in the heart of Port Elgin!

Fabulous Bed and Breakfast, five stars. Wonderful retreat with a cozy atmosphere with two lovely people as hosts. Enjoy this home away from home.

Warm hospitality in a beautiful house. Four of us had a relaxing enjoyable stay. Our only regret was the brevity of our visit to Port Elgin.

Just returned from a 2-night stay at Silken Retreat and we are already planning our next visit. The purpose of our visit was a writing retreat, and what a lovely place to get some writing done. This place has everything....comfortable rooms, plush beds, luxurious (private) baths, flat screen tv's, free WI-FI, gourmet coffee station, mini-fridge, plus much much more. The breakfast is a healthy (and filling!) 3-course spread: fresh fruit, yogurt & granola, a smoothie, home-baked banana bread, followed by something hot and lovely (spinach frittata one morning and eggs benedict the next). The grounds are also beautiful and immaculately kept. As soon as you walk in the door, the hosts Priscilla and Ken, make you feel like family. Will definitely recommend Silken Retreat to family and friends.

Sil-ken Retreat...owners & hosts Priscilla and Ken have done a remarkable job converting a 19 century home to a beautiful B&B preserving that quaint old home Ontario appearance yet providing travellers with very comfortable accomodations with all modern amenities. Priscilla and Ken are excellent conversationalists, very knowledgeable of the Bruce tourist area, Priscilla's humour and quick wit readily puts one at ease,her breakfasts are to die for. Aside from all that, she programs set top boxes for televisions,...cleans, cooks, landscapes, gardens,and last but not least she prepares well written driving instructions for those that are directionally challenged. Sil-ken Retreat is tops in my books.

- Don Campbell, from Bratford Ontario 16 July 2012

This is a wonderful place to stay. The house has been tastefully renewed with modern conveniences while still retaining the old charm. The hostess was warm and friendly and the breakfast superb. We hope to make a return visit.
