We were at the Benmiller Inn twenty plus years ago for part of our honeymoon and back to the Benmiller Inn and Spa a few years ago for our anniversary. In fact there was such a severe snow storm that we were stranded and snowed in at the Inn. Had to spend an extra day before we were able to depart - what fun!!
