We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful B&B. Could not ask for finer hosts (Gail & Steve). They were fun, accommodating, informative and delightful. The breakfasts were top rated. Gail was an extraordinary chef. Steve was witty and charming. They both work hard at maintaining this gorgeous property. Their son was helpful and arranged wine tours that were superb...

The room was lovely, the service delightful & the food delicious (even for my celiac partner). However, it was the view from the privacy of our two person lawn pod that really sets Benchmark apart. The big couch like pod with its folding roof afforded us our own world from which to watch the sun set and lie under the...

Where do I begin... The moment you are greeted by the gracious hosts (Gail and Steve), you feel at home right away! It's almost as if you are on an episode of "Cheers". Names are remembered, titles are lost, everyone is equal and there to experience and share great memories. You can feel that Gail and Steve are passionate about...

Benchmark if probably the best B&B I have ever stayed at. Our hosts were friendly and generous with their time and helpful tips on things to do. The rooms are beutifully appointed, large and clean. The pool and views are spectacular - well worth a visit.

We stayed here in August. It is perfectly located right off the KVR for cyclists and across the street from a little wine shop. The hosts are phenomenal and they have clearly put a lot of work and love into the place. The attention to detail is incredible, the view hard to beat and the pool and breakfasts great too!...

We just spent 9 days at Benchmark B&B and couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The rooms are private and there is a wonderful view of the lake from your bedroom window. Did I mention the great pool and hot tub? Gail is a fabulous cook and the breakfasts were amazing. Thanks for all the local advice...
