“Impeccably Clean!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I apologize to the owners for not submitting a review in a more timely fashion. My husband and I stayed one night in late July for a 10th wedding anniversary celebration on our way to Ottawa. The house is stunning and so very clean, kitchen is a chefs dream space, living room/lounge is ultra comfortable, landscaping is lush, and the views are awesome. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and shown to our room where spa music was playing (nice touch!). We pre-arranged a dinner that night for $35 pp and it was a full course gourmet meal. Nicely done and delicious. What we appreciated the most was the effort taken to given us creative tasty items that were gluten free. Unfortunately, the room we had was a queen sized bed and it just wasn't all that comfortable for us since we're used to the space of a King and we could feel each others movement through the night, but otherwise everything was bang on for detail, right down to the personalized menu, chocolate covered strawberries, and sparkling wine in honour of our celebration. There was also a small coffee kiosk with many choices, and fridge with snacks outside our room in the hallway. Breakfast also was hearty and satisfying with all the foods we love, gluten free. Extremely friendly and gracious hosts. We'd stay here again for sure, but in a King room.

Room Tip: Like fences make good neighbours, King beds make good marriages :)

From the stunning location and home, to the warmth of the hosts, to the comforts of the suite itself to the presentation and quality of the food, there is nowhere else I would rather spend an evening or two.
I was surprised by my husband for our 9th anniversary with a return to the Benaaron where we had spent an anniversary 3 years before, and was beyond thrilled when I found out where we were headed.
We stayed in the Sodalite room again which has a gorgeous view and a private balcony perfect for enjoying a glass of wine together in the evening, or morning coffee and fresh baked goods freshly prepared by hostess Elaine. The bed is lovely, the fireplace a perfect touch for these cooler evenings and the en suite bathroom pristine and cozy with heated floors...just every touch you can imagine to make for a getaway to remember. We chose to have dinner there also, which was better than a lot of top restaurants, from taste to presentation. My only complaint would be that we only had one day to spend there! Thank you for another incredible retreat, Ron and Elaine!

I came here with my fiance before he left the provence for 6 months on business to have some time to ourselves. We had a great time would certainly come back again. The owners went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves with everything including dinner. We had snacks, coffee, drinks, etc. available should we want them and fresh scones served with homemade jam early in the morning. They even gave us a small bottle of champagne to toast to our engagement.

We were also sent home with wonderful goodies! We were givin homemade soap from a local business they support, some of the homemade jam we had in the morning and a recipe from the meal we had the night before as I had commented on how much we enjoyed it.

I'm sure we'll be back in the future for some relaxation and good food! I would recommend to anyone travelling through Bancroft to be sure to stay at Benaaron should they require overnight accomodation. You won't regret it!

Thank you so very much for the lovely experiences at Benaaron!! You have created such a haven - perfectly appointed living spaces which are luxurious but not pretentious.

Oh, and the food was really wonderful too - very balanced nutritionally as well as perfectly cooked and beautiful presentation.

We will definitely come again!

We booked site on seen based on TA. We had a fabulous stay and a few adventures. Our hosts were respectful, friendly, and couldn't have been more helpful. We spent four nights and enjoyed every minute. The home is 5 star and the food was delicious...homemade preserves, BBQ bacon, home made loaves and muffins. There was a very well stocked snack area with a Coffee maker, juice, pop etc. we went on a walk and got lost and our host came and found us! You just can't ask for better than that. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I decided to incorporate this B & B into our weeklong 10th anniversary celebration and spent 3 wonderful nights here. Was a bit apprehensive about spending 3 nights in a place based solely off of tripadvisor reviews, but the reviews are spot on.
Lovely location, breathtakingly beautiful scenery, immaculately clean- even the grout in the shower is pristine- I can be a bit like Howie mandel when it comes to cleanliness. The owners Ron and Elaine were warm and welcoming, easily making one feel at home but without being intrusive. No detail was overlooked, fresh flowers, candies, snacks, home baking, robes, slippers, the list goes on.
Breakfast and dinner were healthy yet indulgent. Elegantly presented and delicious.
Easily the most enjoyable and shall I say bordering on decadent B & B that we have been to.
Looking forward to our next stay.

The reviews on this site are accurate; however the first hand experience is even better! Elaine and Ron are gracious, professional and warm people who made us feel like we were home. Every detail was flawless, the food plentiful and delicious, and the cleanliness was impeccable. My Partner and I completely enjoyed our experience from start to finish. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful, however we would choose the Sodalite room for the best view.
