About us

Welcome to Silken Retreat A Victorian Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to Silken Retreat, a restored Victorian Bed and Breakfast home. We are located in the heart of Port Elgin, minutes away from the beautiful beaches of Saugeen Shores on Lake Huron. Our approach is simple: offer our guests a home-away-from-home at one of the hidden gems our province has to offer.

Our B&B offers elegant, olde world charm coupled with modern conveniences and the hospitality that we love to share with our guests. The house features three second-floor bedrooms, all with private ensuite bathrooms. Rooms are climate controlled for your comfort. Common areas include a central hall coffee station, a common balcony, a mini-fridge and a computer station.

We also provide free WIFI and a secure lock up for bicycles. Guests may enjoy their choice of a full, vegetarian or continental breakfast every morning between 7:30 and 9:30. Our guests can relax in the living room, on the wrap-around porch or under the trees beside our garden. The tranquility of our property extends throughout the community to the many parks and waterfront trails.

We look forward to making your stay with us a comfortable and memorable vacation.
