From the moment we arrived at the Silken Retreat we knew we were going to fall in love with this beautiful historic home that was converted to a B&B. Priscilla & Ken the owners made us feel right at home. Our room was the McClung suite and upon entering it realized that we were going to have an incredible visit. My husband & I quickly sunk into the most comfortable king size mattress and I have to say it was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in!! The room is quaintly furnished and we fell in love with the modern appeal of the granite counter tops in the bathroom...which is incredibly spacious. It is also equipped with a jacuzzi tub which was a nice added bonus and 2 white linen robes are provided as well with ample towels.
For breakfast we were served a full course meal complete with fresh homemade banana bread & fruit smoothies, homemade waffles with fresh fruit & whip cream and the most amazing coffee served in their beautifully appointed dining room. After breakfast it was nice to sit out on the porch & relax in their comfy wicker rocking chairs...and just daydream. The grounds are immaculate and also offer many seating spots to wander or just sit and relax.
There is also a beautiful balcony on the second floor that you can sit out after brewing your coffee in the Keurig that is available upstairs. The B&B is conveniently located so that it is accessible to walk to the beach or walk to the quaint little shops in the downtown area.
This was our second visit to the Silken Retreat & upon arrival for our 27th Anniversary celebration were greeted to a beautiful bottle of wine, wine glasses, long stem rose & a beautiful hand written note from Priscilla & Ken...so incredibly thoughtful and very touching! This is why I would highly recommend this B&B...the hospitality is tremendous and we will continue to visit on a regular basis!
Thank you Priscilla & Ken for making us feel completely at home :)
