The hosts at Benchmark are jovial and gracious and the property offers amazing unobstructed views of the open sky, mountains and lake. The beds are top quality; the rooms are spotless; the hot tub, pool and grounds are perfectly kept. Very close to the gorgeous KVR trail. This place is a real gem in Naramata. And these folks now how...

My mother and I absolutely loved the Benchmark B+B. Only minutes from Naramata, high on the hillside with spectacular views of Okanagan Lake. Accommodations were modern and luxurious. Breakfast was amazing! Three delicious courses. Our hosts were gracious and welcoming. Benchmark B+B was the highlight of our trip, and we would most definitely recommend staying here if your travels take...

Fabulous B+B that I am loathe to share lest it get too popular. Our hosts are by turns hilarious and truly warm and welcoming. Breakfast is simply divine with a new creation for each of the three days we stayed, enjoyed al fresco overlooking the lake. Rooms are very comfortable and exquisitely appointed with great care and refinement.

We stayed at Benchmark for three days on October, and loved every minute of our time there. The view, the room, the property, the hot tub, the breakfasts and the gracious hosts were beyond our expectations in all respects. We've traveled to Naramata many times and know the area well, but this experience truly was quite special. We'll be back!

My husband and I spent three days at Benchmark in September, and can't say enough good things about it. We wanted a relaxing holiday, and were very content enjoying the amazing view of the lake from the day beds, our private patio or the hot tub, and being served fantastic breakfasts each morning. The room was immaculately clean and the...

My husband and I stayed at Benchmark for 2 days in September and had a great time. This was our first experience at a B&B and we loved it. We were in the Ruby Room which was really comfortable.

My sister and I took our 91 year old Mum to the our birth place in Penticton , BC this summer. We had many summer memories of picnics, birthday parties and share friends and family events at the beach in Naramata. Plus all those school bus rides through the orchards, which many are now vineyards. We feel very fortunate to...

My only regret is that we didn't stay longer than one night. The hosts are great - just the right mixture of friendliness and humour. I don't have experience with other places in Naramata but you can't go wrong at Benchmark.
