The Front Porch

The “Front Porch” is historically a transitional space between the cocoon of home and the cacophony of the outside world. The “porch” has always been the place where a great deal happens, neighbors gather and share a glass of lemonade and conversation. Benbow Historic Inn’s Front Porch continues this tradition and offers a comfortable space where guests meet and mingle and enjoy each other, the view and a glass of local wine or beer. The Front Porch is perfect for a “welcome” to Benbow and kick start the weekend’s festivities.
