We had a glorious stay at our beloved Benbow Inn. John Elliott and Maria Schmitt have been most gracious. John took the time to take us on a grand tour of the NEWLY RENOVATED BENBOW. It is wonderful to see all the details blend in with this historic treasure. We have been visiting Benbow for the past past 53 years. We always make sure we arrive for the fabulous tea and scone…yum, yum! We loved our terrace room overlooking the old stone bridge. We are already looking forward to returning to this magnificent place in the California Redwoods. Bob and Glenda Morgan San luis Obispo, Calif.
