Luxurious feel with the B&B however informal at the same time. Room very clean, tastefully decorated, little added touches such as a picnic basket,wine carafe, (for your... More

What is there to say that hasn't already been said? The property (and view) is nothing short of epic, Steve and Gail are gracious, helpful and entertaining hosts, and the food will make you wish they served lunch and dinner. You'd be crazy to stay anywhere else!

Our carefully picked choice to stay at the Benchmark B+B could not be outdone. We came for a quick get-away, for the last of warm BC sun before the bitter Saskatchewan cold, the extraordinary views, and as always, for the wine. We had staked out our days in the valley, but once we had arrived, we loathed to leave the... More

The hosts at Benchmark are jovial and gracious and the property offers amazing unobstructed views of the open sky, mountains and lake. The beds are top quality; the rooms are spotless; the hot tub, pool and grounds are perfectly kept. Very close to the gorgeous KVR trail. This place is a real gem in Naramata. And these folks now how... More

My mother and I absolutely loved the Benchmark B+B. Only minutes from Naramata, high on the hillside with spectacular views of Okanagan Lake. Accommodations were modern and luxurious. Breakfast was amazing! Three delicious courses. Our hosts were gracious and welcoming. Benchmark B+B was the highlight of our trip, and we would most definitely recommend staying here if your travels take... More

Fabulous B+B that I am loathe to share lest it get too popular. Our hosts are by turns hilarious and truly warm and welcoming. Breakfast is simply divine with a new creation for each of the three days we stayed, enjoyed al fresco overlooking the lake. Rooms are very comfortable and exquisitely appointed with great care and refinement.

We stayed at Benchmark for three days on October, and loved every minute of our time there. The view, the room, the property, the hot tub, the breakfasts and the gracious hosts were beyond our expectations in all respects. We've traveled to Naramata many times and know the area well, but this experience truly was quite special. We'll be back!

What a fantastic treat to spend the weekend at Benchmark. The accommodations are absolutely gorgeous. The view is spectacular and the hosts are absolutely charming and helpful too! Oh and the three course breakfast is to die for.

My husband and I spent three days at Benchmark in September, and can't say enough good things about it. We wanted a relaxing holiday, and were very content enjoying the amazing view of the lake from the day beds, our private patio or the hot tub, and being served fantastic breakfasts each morning. The room was immaculately clean and the... More

My husband and I stayed at Benchmark for 2 days in September and had a great time. This was our first experience at a B&B and we loved it. We were in the Ruby Room which was really comfortable. The location and views are fabulous and the suggestions provided by Steve with regards to activities, etc. were much appreciated. Gail... More
