If a winding driveway, past a hill of spectacular autumn colours, leading to a massive, fairytale red door that opens into a stone-floored and beam-filled inn is your kind of vibe this fall, you should check into The Benmiller Inn and Spa.
Located along the beautiful Maitland River, the 25 acres of grounds are lovely to walk through or just admire from a seat on the patio with a beverage. Offering 55 unique guest rooms in various buildings, this inn is a complex of spaces and offers a full-sized pool, sauna and spa services on site. The Ivey dining room offers views of Sharpe’s Creek and you can get a real feel for the woolen mill this building once housed. The dining room is open seven days a week for guests and the general public. Some Saturdays include live entertainment during the evenings in the lounge.
The Inn was first renovated from its previous life as a woolen mill over 40 years ago and the history of the mill and other buildings is on display, adding to the charm of your stay. Have a cozy seat with a glass of wine near the fireplace in the lobby and check out the samples of blankets once made right here.
The very popular Goderich-to-Guelph (G2G) Rail Trail is just minutes away and there are many other hiking opportunities around Benmiller. The outdoor activities continue into the winter months with great cross-country skiing nearby. It’s also located not far from many of the popular Huron County locations including museums, theatres and the beach.
This is a perfect country wedding venue and they offer everything you need for your special day, including accommodation, ceremony locations, full meal service and natural backdrops for stunning photos. They are already booking into 2023.
The staff is happy to help you plan your next business meeting or special event and, with a variety of spaces for all sizes of meetings and private parties, they book up fast and are looking forward to another busy fall and holiday season to end 2021 with a happy buzz.
They plan to host special Thanksgiving dinners and brunches this fall, details to be released on the website and Facebook. New fall and winter packages will be available as well.
