We stayed at the Benchmark from 7/12-7/16 (Friday to Tuesday). We had the Penthouse, which with the deck outside the room, had great views of the the town and water, being a little higher than the surrounding homes. The room was great, clean, comfortable, and inviting. The first night we slept with open windows, and being a little east of center, was very quiet. The next nights were pretty hot, so the central A/C was very welcome. Owners Dan and Daniel were extremely gracious and accommodating hosts, quick with dinner suggestions (and made our reservations for us) that were right on target. The continental breakfasts they served in the morning were great, with many homemade options, courtesy of Daniel. Pricewise, any B&B in this area at peak season will be steep, but we didn't feel it was a bad value: you're within short walks of everything, but off Commercial St, and quiet at night. The other guests were all very nice, and we had pleasant conversations at breakfast in the common dining room. We loved it, and would love to return someday.
