Nestled in a wooded hollow on the banks of the Maitland River and Sharpe’s Creek, the Benmiller Inn & Spa welcome you to a haven of historic charm, natural beauty and authentic country inn hospitality.
Created from a group of carefully restored mills dating back to the 19th century, the Benmiller Inn & Spa offers a charmingly historic and romantic ambience with a naturally beautiful backdrop for small intimate weddings with just close family and friends (40 or less) or more elaborate affairs of 90-130 guests. The ceremony can take place in a variety of different locations including:
The Creekside Garden
Surrounded by nature, next to the babbling creek and sheltered by trees, the Garden Lawn is our most popular spot. Ideally located just outside the dining room & lounge, it’s the perfect location for a smooth transition into cocktail hour on the patio. Following the ceremony we can help you host an elegant cocktail hour, after which a gourmet dinner would be served in one of the three rooms that make up the Ivey Dining Room.
With Sharpe’s Creek as the backdrop, this is great option for ceremonies up to 60 people seated. The upper Patio is covered from the end of May through to Thanksgiving and can be Plan B, if Mother Nature gives us a little rain.
Overlooking the Maitland River, the stunning view is something every couple falls in love with. (Additional cost may apply for ceremony set ups)
The Fireside Den
Intimate and romantic, this ceremony location is suited for groups of 35 and under and a
favourite for elopements. **Also the perfect spot for the Bridal Party to get ready and take pictures.
The perfect location for a winter ceremony or another Plan B, if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Can seat up to 95 with an aisle and altar area. **Also the perfect spot for smaller receptions under 60 people.
