We rented out all 4 rooms. (We had to as we were bringing a child under 16 yrs. Ironic, as he is better behaved than some of the 20 somethings....but anyway) It was a great set up for parents (us) with a few sets of partnered kids. Everyone had their own room and bathroom but it all opened on to...

My wife and I wanted to visit Naramata for our 2nd wedding anniversary, so when I found Benchmark B&B online and the Ruby Suite was available I immediately booked it. The website sold me, but when we arrived we realized that their website did not do their property justice because seeing it in person was ten fold more amazing! It...

I have stayed here 5 times over 4 years! 2x with a boyfriend, 2x with 7 other girlfriends and this time with my parents and their best friends. If only I could say that I'm biased now because I feel like Steve and Gail have become an extension of my family. Naramata has captured a place in my heart that...

Benchmark B&B is a wonderful place. The Okanagan valley is stunningly beautiful place, and there are no better views of it than from the Naramata Bench. The most striking thing about Benchmark B&B is the amazing view across Okanagan lake. We stayed in the Ruby suite, which is the biggest of the four suites available. It was very clean and...

Booked into Benchmark for a wedding in Namarata and was not disappointed with this B&B. The view is breathtaking and the property is very beautiful. The owners Gail and Steve are both wonderful and extremely helpful. They really went out their ways to make us feel very welcome. They even drove us to a restaurant for lunch and to the...

What can be said about this wonderful place? Should I start with the incredible view of the lake or the amazing breakfasts that rival any top restaurant? How about the beautiful rooms, each with its jeweled theme? (we stayed in emerald while our friends stayed in safire). Maybe it's the close vacinity to some amazing wineries or the hot tub...

You rarely come across a place where every detail, touch and feeling has been thought of with guest satisfaction in mind! This place included all of the amenities we seeked for our 5 year anniversary celebration: modern design, spacious room, peacefulness, privacy, pool and a spectacular Naramata bench view! (photos are always nice, but once you arrive, you'll truly understand)....

We were incredibly impressed with the gorgeous property and wonderful hospitality. Steve and Gail were incredibly gracious, friendly and funny. Our breakfasts were out of this world. We can't wait until our next visit!

We love this place. It has everything you could ask for or wish for in a B&B. I cannot say enough about it. I am afraid to say too much because I want to keep coming back and have it available. This was our second visit. This is a B&B but could also be called a Boutique Hotel. Each room...

This accommodation has been above and beyond our expectations. Upon arrival my boyfriend and I were greeted by bubbly, gracious hosts, Steve and Gail, who showed us to our amazing room.
