My husband and I decided to get away for the weekend for a much deserved break from the every day hectic world. We had been to Benmiller 8 years ago and my husband made the last minute decision that we should go again....and I am so happy he did. Is the Inn in need of some updating...absolutely. Can we see that the new owner is making and effort.....absolutely. These things take both time and money, but what they may lack in the way of frills they more than make up for in setting, staffing and overall enjoyment.
We stayed in the Gledhill House, second floor - loved waking up in the morning, opening the balcony doors and listening to all those happy birds!
Met a very nice young lady while walking the property who turned out to be the GM - Dawn - very helpful and took the time to discuss the work that has taken place since the storm blew through a couple of years ago.
The garden/patio area off the dining room is beautiful - you forget that there is a road just on the other side of the trees. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a cocktail, maybe dinner, and soft music playing while you listen to the water go by and enjoy the view of floral gardens and mature trees.
Breakfast was included in our stay and was delicious and the brunch on Sunday was very impressive with a good selection of breakfast and hot entrée items along with a selection of salads and naturally sinful desserts.
You are a short drive into Goderich (5-10 min) and definitely worth the drive into this lovely little town. A nice assortment of little shops in the downtown square and take a drive or walk down to the waterfront. Better yet, take a picnic lunch and enjoy. It has to be one of the nicest waterfronts we have seen in a long time....don't miss it.
And not to be forgotten - the staff who made our weekend that much better. Having had dinner both nights at the Inn, one night in the dining room and one night outside - the food was very good. We had the pleasure of being taken care of by Dan and Myron - both were wonderful, friendly and another reason why we would go back to Benmiller.
If you are there on a Saturday night, don't miss the entertainment in the lounge that starts at 7 pm - sit back, have an after dinner cocktail and enjoy the one man show - anyone who can do Elvis, Johnny Cash, Supertramp and Otis Redding over the evening has talent! The bonus is that if you are sitting outside when the entertainment starts - don't worry - they make sure they pipe him through the speaker system so you can still enjoy him.
