About the Benbow Inn
Our luxurious and historic Redwood Coast hotel near the Avenue of the Giants offers gracious service, charming Lost Coast lodging guestrooms, golf, swimming, and a celebrated dining room, which has been awarded the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence. Our guests revel in our scenic gardens and grounds, afternoon tea service, and classic, architecturally significant common rooms, massage services, and full-service lounge, and the hotel's easy access to hiking, birding, kayaking, and strolling through the forests of the Redwood State Parks.
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 hotel's beautiful location and distinctive Tudor design has earned the resort the reputation as a unique Northern California getaway — intriguing travelers for eight decades.
