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

Rented 2 rooms for 3 nights to visit the local wineries. Perfect location and lovely accommodation. Gayle and Steve were great hosts. Each of the rooms is extremely well appointed and comfortable. Lots of nice touches like floating chairs, colour coordinated robes, very tasty popcorn, picnic packs, small refrigerators, etc. Enjoyed the 4 hour wine tour with Orson, a fun... More

Beautiful B&B in the hills of Naramata and a short drive from Penticton BC with our gorgeous room overlooking Okanagan Lake. It's a short drive to access the Kettle Valley Trail which is great for cycling and the numerous wineries in the area. The hosts of this B&B serve to die for breakfasts every morning plus know the area you... More

Perfect getaway with private rooms with a view in a B&B setting, food was excellent, service was excellent, and location was fabulous. Each room has a private entrance with a sliding glass door that offers views of the lake. It was a perfect place for family members to stay yet be in their own private room like a hotel. Breakfast...
