It’s good to slow down every once in a while and simply enjoy the beauty that Northern California has to offer. When you find that it’s time for a vacation, this historic hotel on the North Coast will welcome you with open arms. Established nearly a century ago, this hotel is tucked away in the redwood forest and it boasts a little bit of something for everyone. For a quiet retreat among the majestic redwoods, the Benbow Historic Inn is the place to be!
Located in the heart of Northern California's Redwood Country, Benbow Historic Inn is a gem of a hotel where you can truly escape from it all.
A treasured member of Historic Hotels of America, the Benbow Inn is nestled along the banks of the Eel River near the small town of Garberville. The setting is just heavenly - perfect for a weekend of relaxing or exploring. Operating for nearly a century, it won't be long until this longstanding hideaway wins over your heart.
Established in 1926, the hotel quickly became a popular destination for tourists traveling along the newly completed (at the time) Redwood Highway. Visiting the hotel today, you can't help but feel like you've stepped back in time. And the addition of modern amenities means you'll feel perfectly at home, as well!
Both the idyllic setting and the beautiful Tudor design have made the Benbow Historic Inn an intriguing stop for nine decades.

In fact, the inn has just about everything you could ever need during your redwoods getaway. All guests can enjoy complimentary tea and scones, in-room créme sherry, to-go style breakfast, newspapers, and access to bicycles. You'll also have access to places like the guest library, great room lobby with fireplace, and a game room with board games and pool.
The hotel's guest bedrooms are filled with historic charm and inviting decor. Located in the inn's historical and terrace buildings, you might just never want to leave the comfort of your king-sized bed - especially if the fireplace is going!
And with destinations like Avenue of the Giants and Shelter Cove just a short drive away, Benbow Historic Inn is an ideal basecamp for your North Coast adventure. Come and enjoy a peaceful stay at the historic inn of your dreams!
