This is the fourth year in a row we have stayed at Benchmark B & B. My husband and I have turned it into an annual tradition since we can't stay away! Steve and Gail are just the sweetest people and even more remarkable hosts. If you love wine then Naramata is the place to visit, especially if you can...

Our hosts, and breakfast at this beautiful property were excellent. Super location that has very good restaurants, wineries, beaches, and the scenic Kettle Valley RR walking/cycling route close by. The setting is wonderful, with views of vineyards, forest, the lake, and mountains. Four rooms open on the pool. I would have liked the option of breakfast times for active, early...

I loved this bed and breakfast so much I almost wanted to cry when we left. Steve and Gail are the best hosts ever. They make everyone feel so comfortable and are attentive to the finest of details. The rooms are beautiful, (we stayed in the sapphire room). The food beyond excellent. The hot tub, the yard, the views and...

We randomly came across Benchmark one evening while driving in the countryside and looking for a place to stay. Steve opened the door, and we immediately liked his very British charm and sense of humour. We booked for the next night, and were so delighted that we decided to extend our stay. The room was perfect, with a panoramic lake...

Loved everything about Benchmark B&B. The rooms were comfortable and beautiful and the view, hot tub, breakfast and lawn to spend time on was perfect. It was so nice we decided to bbq there for both evenings of our stay.

What a view no matter where we were - laying on bed, relaxing in the hot tub, napping in the canopied day bed - we had an outstanding view of the lake. We wanted a relaxing weekend, and we got it and more. Our hosts were helpful with places to eat and activities to do. The breakfasts were second to...

Naramata is wine country. While here, why not stay in wine country in a beautiful B&B? Benchmark is perfect! This is much more than a normal B&B. The view of the lake and the valley is un-matched. Attention to detail is outstanding. We were up early so I made coffee in the room and there was even a couple of...

This review is months late coming and won't cover anything that hasn't already been said by the dozens of other reviewers and guests of Benchmark, but sometimes a sentence needs more than a few exclamation marks. Read any of the reviews and you'll read that the property is stunning, the view unbeatable, the food delicious, and the accommodations top notch....

Benchmark B&B exceeded my expectations 10 fold!! The property is well kept, the facilities (pool, hot tub) are likewise well kept and the rooms are perfect! Last but truly not least...the amazing view has to be commented on!! Waking up and having coffee overlooking Okanogan Lake is something that has to be experienced!

When you look for host in the dictionary there should be a picture of Steve and Gail's smiling faces. They took care of our every need, suggested some great wineries we hadn't heard of, served one of the planets best continental breakfasts', and kept us laughing all weekend.
