My wife and I have been to the Benmiller Inn several times over the past 30 years--but our last visit was probably at least 15 years ago. We decided to give it a try again over the Christmas break with our two sons (both young adults) and my son's girlfriend. We stayed in the main building on the second floor. The rooms were clean and cozy, if maybe just a little tired--the bathrooms could definitely use a bit of sprucing up. We really liked the Keurig coffee maker in the bathroom and the apples on our bedside tables--nice touches. All the staff--front desk, lounge, restaurant--were friendly, courteous and responsive. We loved sitting in the lounge by the fireplace before dinner. The atmosphere was enhanced by music that created a feel that was a nice combination of cozy and elegant. The restaurant was outstanding. On Tuesday we enjoyed a prime rib buffet. The desserts were to die for. On Wednesday we ate a la carte. We all enjoyed our selections. Breakfast was served buffet style and featured both continental and hot selections (i.e., French toast, eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, etc.). We felt a bit of a cold draught when seated at a table in the dining room near the door to an outdoor patio--staff were helpful in finding us another table.
My wife and I enjoyed a couple of pleasant walks through the woods (where there is still evidence of tornado damage) and along the banks of the Saugeen River. The boys and I also enjoyed using the lovely indoor pool, spa and sauna--unfortunately the sauna wasn't nearly hot enough for my liking. There was a very modest exercise area that included a stationary bike and a treadmill. Some kind of strength equipment (e.g., Bowflex) would be a nice addition.
Overall, we had a very pleasant, relaxing experience and will definitely return.
