Couple Exploring the Niagara Benchlands by Bike

The Niagara Benchlands are a region of scenic beauty along the Niagara Escarpment where you can experience an abundance of lush green scenery, and there’s always plenty to see and do, no matter what time of year you plan your countryside escape. Located in the quaint village of Jordan, Inn On The Twenty is your destination for all the leisure and year-round adventure that the Niagara Benchlands have to offer while relaxing in the most beautiful accommodations available. 

Spring in the Niagara Benchlands

Watch the world come alive with #BlossomWatch in May, when thousands of peach, cherry, and nectarine blossoms bloom, a sign of spring. You can also take in the stunning cherry blossom trees that line the streets of Jordan Village – a stunning backdrop to a boutique open-air shopping experience. If you’re an avid golfer, there are three fantastic courses in the Benchlands to enjoy, complete with club houses to relax after a long day on the green.

Fall in the Benchlands

Romantic Fall Dinning at Inn On The Twenty Restaurant
