Things to do

Come for the elk, stay for the attractions in Benezette

Your Benezette vacation rentals will give you and your family a comfortable home to come back to at the end of the day.

Benezette’s climate means vacation fun any time of year

Benezette has regular snowfall in the winter and temperate springs and summers, which means you can go snowmobiling or cross-country skiing in December and golfing in August. The scenic highways are especially pretty when the leaves begin to turn, but it can also be refreshing to see the first green of spring in a town with such beautiful natural surroundings.

Natural features

The story of the Benezette elk

A major nature attraction in Benezette is the Northeast’s largest head of free-roaming elk. If you visit between September and October, you will get to hear the bugling of the bulls and possibly even see the largest elk vie for dominance. The most popular spot to see the animals is at the Dent’s Run Elk Viewing Area, but you’d be surprised at how close the elk get to the residents of this cozy town. When you see one walking past your Benezette vacation rentals—and you probably will—make sure to grab your camera.
