Celebrating a birthday was the perfect excuse to get away from the city and drive up to Benbow Inn for the weekend. I love historic hotels with charm and character and the Inn does not disappoint. Since it was for my birthday, there was a half-bottle of champagne chilling in our room when we arrived – very nice touch! The Benbow Inn is a place to slow down and relax, enjoy delicious meals in the dining room, take long walks through the tall redwoods, meet someone new over afternoon tea and scones, stop for a moment and work on the puzzle by the fire, and enjoy a martini on the deck. It was so gorgeous sitting on the veranda that one night, we simply ordered dinner there instead of going to the dining room. We will be back!
