November 2016 Spotlight Business of the Month - The Historic Benbow Inn

The "Hotel Benbow" opened to the public in July of 1926 and soon became a popular destination formotoring tourists traveling up the newly-completed Redwood Highway.  The Inn quickly became a popular attraction for the Hollywood Elite: Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable, Alan Ladd, Charles Laughton, Joan Fontaine and Basil Rathbone were all patrons of the Inn, as well as dignitaries Eleanor Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover and King of Jordan.
The current owners, Jack Macdonald and John & Teresa Porter have embarked on an expansion that neither the Benbows nor any subsequent owners were able to complete.  This expansion (currently underway) will make this historic icon ADA compliant with an elevator, new ADA guest rooms, ADA public restrooms and other facilities to allow guests with physical challenges to stay and/ or dine at the Inn.  A total of ten new guest suites, two banquet rooms, new cocktail lounge, new lower lobby check in area, new banquet kitchen and remodeled main kitchen will finish out this work.
We look forward to seeing you soon at the Benbow Historic Inn!
