Benbow Historic INN
Dining Experience
Local Attractions

The “Hotel Benbow” opened to the public in July of 1926 and soon became a popular destination resort for motoring tourists traveling up the newly completed Redwood Highway.

Set above the banks of the Eel River, our North Coast Inn’s beautiful location and distinctive Tudor design has earned the resort the reputation as a National Treasure and Northern California getaway — intriguing travelers for nine decades.

Benbow Historic Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places and a proud member of Historic Hotels of America.

Recent Renovations & Hotel Expansions
