Benaaron Guest House
Ranked #1 of 10 Bancroft B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Stayed at Ron and Elaine's guest house for one night on a trip across Ontario. It was perfect in every way from the lace embroidered linens on the comfortable bed to the little touches (cut glass tumblers in the bathroom, delicate wine glasses in the bedroom) and so on. Our hosts left no detail out to make us feel both at home and pampered at the same time. Would most definitely stay again. Breakfast was delicious and home baked muffins, bread, and scones melted in our mouths. The only small setback was created by the address which is NOT in Bancroft, but over 20 km east off highway 28. With a different township address, the gps was useless in finding this place. Advise just punching in the Ontario Street address and going from there.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Granite room, but the Sodalite room was superior with its own balcony and chairs...

My newly wedded wife and I stayed at the Benaaron Guest House for a couple of nights during our honeymoon. We had a wonderful stay. Elaine and Ron were great hosts. She cooks a fabulous breakfast, everything is home made with quality ingredients, down to the bread and jam. (In fact, I liked the jam so much that she gave me a jar of it upon leaving - Rhubarb Pineapple.) We also ordered dinner one night and it was one of the best meals we've eaten all year. Our room (Sodalite Suite) was cozy and relaxing. The view, the tub, and comfy bed made it hard to leave.

They know the area quite well, and can recommend different places to go hiking, etc. As we were a bit unprepared for the bugs, they kindly lent us their bug nets and bug spray.

For us, it is out of our normal price range, but a honeymoon is a special occasion. For the quality of the hosts, their place, and the food, we didn't feel like we over paid. We would recommend it to others celebrating a special occasion :)

Thanks again Ron and Elaine!

Room Tip: Go for the Sodalite Suite!

We stopped here for 1 night on our trip to Ontario in June and wish we could have stayed longer.
We were met by our hosts Elaine and Ron who made us feel very welcome in their home. Our room was the Sodalite suite and we were glad we picked this room as it has its own private balcony with spectacular views over the hills.
We also booked dinner and it was excellent, possibly the best meal we had on our 2 week trip.
Everything about this house is top quality and the attention to detail is amazing.
We recieved the kind of service you would expect in a top hotel but with a friendly personal touch which makes this place very spacial.
We have travelled all over the world and this is one of the best places we have stayed.

I have been to this lovely place twice.. each time being welcomed with warm greetings and instant comfort. The home is beautiful, the rooms so comfortable... I am up there solely for work.. and I feel so "at home" wherever I sit to review my files....
The food was spectacular.... as I always order my dinner for a reasonable additional fee...as the food and presentation is nicer then any place you will find in Bancroft.
Thank you Elaine and Ron for a " home away from home" .... and it sounds like you have great future plans as well for this lovely place...
hope to be back soon ..... M

We had the very distinct pleasure of staying at this property last week. Wonderful hosts Elaine and Ron make you feel totally at home. The food was fantastic and the home beautiful. The view is spectacular. Only one downside to our stay, we had to leave!

Room Tip: Both rooms are bright and airy and private. Either one is a great choice.

We happened upon Benaaron during an unexpected March blizzard. We had to pull of the highway due to poor driving conditions and were directed to Benaaron by locals at the nearest gas station. Elaine and Ron were very accommodating with our last minute booking. They were delightful hosts who made us feel at home.

The room with a king-sized bed, flat screen t.v., pedastal tub overlooking a beautiful view and ensuite bathroom were amazing! The bed was also very comfortable. The room was exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. Free snacks and hot drinks were available at any time. The gourmet breakfast was also a highlight. A common sitting room with a wood fire place and cathedral ceilings added to a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere!

We would highly recommend staying at Benaaron to anyone travelling in the area! We hope to make a planned trip there again in the future!

Stayed two nights at the Benaaron Guest House in the Granite room. Elaine and Ron were amazing hosts, willing to help us whenever we needed something. They have a beautiful, clean home with an amazing property and breath taking view. With our package we had the option to add dinner for two, this was a 4 course meal with plenty extras that made the evening very special. The food was amazing! Can't stress enough the superb hospitality that was extended to us. We were treated like family but waited on at every step of the way. Elaine and Ron went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was warm and comfortable. Staying at the Benaaron was a great experience and would not hesitate to stay there again. We highly recommend others to stay there. You will not be disappointed with a stay at the Benaaron.
