Loved it!
We really enjoyed our stay. It was raining so we didn't get to venture out much, but will definitely go back during the summer. I loved the history and old feel of it.

Oldie but goodie!
First time back after 4.5 years and Benbow is better than ever! The renovations are great and it is so nice to be able to get to the terrace rooms via the new lobby! The food is fantastic as usual. We made a cozy fire in our room. Still our favorite place on 101!
