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...

From the minute we arrived you just knew that this was a special place. Our hosts treated us warmly and you might say " like family ". Between... 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!
