We stayed for the May long weekend and had a great time. Our hosts looked after every tiny deal including putting on amazing breakfasts each day overlooking the pool. Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the lake was a relaxing way to end each day. We're definitely coming back next year. Scott H

Reviewers aren't kidding --- this hotel has everything you'd hope to find on your wine trip vacation. The views -- wow. Stunning. And there are plenty of seats and "pods" for everyone to enjoy. It was a hot time of year, so we didn't use the hot tub, but it is beautifully situated. The pool was fab. The breakfasts were... More

We stayed for a weekend and had a great time. The hosts are lovely and easy to be around and the gourmet breakfasts overlooking the lake will be meals I will not forget anytime soon. Relaxing and the pool was fun too. We will be back!

Amazingly quiet and relaxing escape in a lovely environment: charming hosts, fabulous breakfasts, spectacular view, laid-back atmosphere with a saltwater pool. Wonderful location to relax and re-charge.

This was our first time staying at a B & B and we were a bit nervous. We were pleasantly surprised! The rooms all had private access. We loved that we could choose to eat on our own, or venture outside and mingle with the other guests. The property is amazing. There is a pool and hot tub overlooking the... More

We spent two days at Benchmark and had a wonderful time, Steve and Gail were excellent hosts and made our stay very enjoyable, from the gourmet breakfast to the spectacular view it was an excellent weekend. We opted for the special that included dinner at the Hillside winery restaurant including transportation to and from, well worth it!

Was it the pool to fall in after the summer heat of wine sampling? Was it the hosts who were funny, hospitable and genuine? Was it the great breakfasts (even though I don't eat eggs) beautifully presented? Was it the friendship of 3 other couples and the laughter? Was it that they sprayed my black car to get the dust...

We just loved our stay at Benchmark B&B! Steve and Gail were fabulous hosts, attending to our every need. The breakfast was incredible and the rooms spotless. Riding in the Gran Fondo with an early start Sunday morning, they prepared a fabulous breakfast and put it in our fridge the night before so we would be fuelled for the ride.... More

Benchmark has almost the perfect layout for a B&B. Guest enjoy privacy in their rooms and the sheer size of the outdoor space means you can keep to yourselves or visit with other travellers. The food is top notch and everyone is made to feel very welcome. It's a lovely spot and Gail and Steve are wonderful hosts. Take advantage... More

Benchmark BnB is a little piece of heaven with Steve and Gail are its guardian angels. It is a peaceful, beautiful and charming place. Steve and Gail are kind, accommodating and funny and after spending just a weekend with them, we feel they are like family. Gail’s cooking is out of this world, and she very easily accommodated my dietary... More
