I had the opportunity to stay at Silken Retreat a few weeks ago. The purpose of the retreat was to work on a writing project in serene, comfortable and clean surroundings, and Silken was the perfect choice! From the outside, Silken looks like a perfectly preserved Victorian home--there's a wrap-around porch that just begs for you to relax on in the cushioned swing-chair, and a backyard-patio where you can put your feet up and sip a glass of wine. Inside, the rooms feature their own en suite bathrooms, super-high-thread count bedding, and beautiful, big windows to enjoy the view. But the absolute best thing for me was how clean the rooms were. Everything was pristine. And the breakfasts--delicious! For a coffee-addict like me, being able to enjoy a Keurig brew in the privacy of my room, AND a latte with breakfast in the dining room, was pure heaven. All in all, Silken was an excellent choice for me--it was a writing retreat that felt like a luxury getaway. I'll go back again for sure!
