To All Of Our Valued Guests,

As of Sunday, March 22, 2020, for the safety of our guests, employees, and vendors we have decided to temporarily close the Inn. Due to the latest announcements from Public Health Officials regarding COVID-19 and Governor Newsom’s stay-at-home order, we feel this is the best decision now to help stop this terrible virus from spreading in our community. We anticipate that this closure will be short-lived, but we will take it one day at a time. With that in mind, our tentative re-open date will be Good Friday, April 10, 2020. Please check our website and social media channels for updates as we continue to keep you notified of our status. If you are not already signed up for our email newsletter, please do so on our website to stay up to date as well.

Our guest services staff will be available to answer the phones at the Inn Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. We are still accepting reservations for future dates and the Benbow KOA & Golf Course will continue to operate with some changes to adapt to the “social distancing” requirements. Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions. You can call us at 800-355-3301 or email us at

We appreciate your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon.

Be well.

John & Teresa Porter & the Benbow Inn Staff
