The Eel River runs warm during the summer months in the Benbow Valley. Swimming, rafting and sun bathing are in order. Roses are in full color, along with impatiens, lilies, marigolds and all the local wildflowers. Dinner guests fill the terrace in the warmth of beautiful summer nights. Golf, bicycle rides, day hikes and leisurely picnics occupy the days.
Summer in Benbow is also highlighted by a series of music festivals and events. From a spectacular 4th of July fireworks show to Summer Arts, Reggae on the River and Benbow's Summer Music Series Under the Stars, there is something for everyone at the resort.
