The Benchmark: is five stars enough?

5 on April 30, 2016

We visited the Benchmark on an April weekend to celebrate an anniversary we share with two old friends. And our time there felt like we were sharing that celebration with new friends. The rooms, though not big, were beautiful and comfortable. Everything works, the beds are lovely, and there are nice touches like fireplaces, ceiling fans, wet bars, and (in at least one room) a skylight over the bed (with blinds, of course). The overall vibe is luxurious, but not pretentious: just elegant, un-fussy comfort. Benji was born to be a B&B host: friendly, welcoming, always available but never intrusive. He clearly enjoys meeting new people and helping guests connect with each other. We had some delightful, wide-ranging conversations around the breakfast table. The breakfast food was excellent--homemade breads and jams, cheeses, pastries, cereals, good fresh fruit, yogurt, an egg boiler, and a Jura coffee maker that produces quite possibly the best coffee I've ever tasted. If you want a perfect Provincetown getaway, the Benchmark is a great place to start. I'm not sure five stars does it justice.

We had a great time, considering the weather was bad. It rained the first two days and snowed the last. This was our first time to Provincetown, I think we will come back in September. Bingi was awesome to deal with, he was so helpful with where to go where to eat. Mews resteraunt was really good, make sure you make reservations . The Benchmark Inn was outstanding, the room was real clean. The views were nice,The Breakfest was good. Don't for get to say hi to Parker.


Wonderful Weekend

Spent a night here over the weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. The room was fantastic and the owner was very friendly and helpful. Only a short walk from the local shops and restaurants. Highly suggest staying here.

Everything you could ask for in a bed and breakfast and more! Great rooms, great location, exceptional staff!


A great place to stay if you are traveling with your pet!

4.4 on January 05, 2016

The Inn was very clean, the hosts extremely friendly and helpful. Most of all, they under how we love to travel with our pets. Most rooms have an interior and exterior entry door, so our dog never needed to be in the common spaces. The location is perfect for taking your dog for a morning or evening walk on the beach. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay to celebrate the new year.


Wonderful Winter Getaway!

My partner and I greatly enjoyed staying at the Benchmark Inn! Our room was just what we expected and very comfortable! This was our first time in Provincetown and we really enjoyed exploring the town and the nature surrounding. Breakfast was very tasty and provided a wide range of options. Everyone was very friendly and helpful!
