Thank you to Amanda in the Historic Banning Mills Lodge, whose kindness and exuberance for her environment carried over into my 6 day trip there. She went the extra mile on my behalf and represented her employers incredibly well with her attention to detail for my needs and her perfect balance of maintaining her busy job. There is also another... More

While the actual zip line was great my experience was dampened by the poor customer service. I had called to add on the rock climbing wall and when I called back 15 minutes later to cancel it I was told there would be a $20 processing fee. I was also told that in order to prevent the loss of the... More

My husband and I have a trip booked for July to stay in one of the treehouses. We did the big package deal and are very excited. I have told everyone I know about this place and can't wait for our time to come. The reviews are awesome and I know we are going to have a great time. We... More

We went zip lining and had a fabulous time. My daughter had a panic attack and refuse to try, our guide walked us down to the lodge where another staff member offered to drive her in the golf cart so she could see us zip lining. They were very caring and understanding, which saved the day in my book. Thanks... More

We didn't get to enjoy the full use of all the activities at the Mill because of rain. We did get to do some 'zip lining which we really enjoyed. Our room was in the lodge. It was clean but you have to understand that this is more of a rustic resort. The room was Ok but it isn't the... More

We went last weekend with my parents (in their 60's) and my sister & her boy friend (in their 20's) and even brought our son (5 months old). Everyone had a great time zip lining. The guides did a great job explaining the safety rules and general how-to's. My hubs, my baby & I all stayed in a treehouse, which... More

We took our special needs daughter zip lining at Banning Hills yesterday. We were unsure how she would do, but she did great! The guides made her feel comfortable and reassured her throughout her experience. The park is beautiful and we peeked inside a few of the cabins. They were all very nice inside and we can't wait to do... More

We participated in the Valentine's Day special they had, which included a romantic 5-course meal and a room and breakfast the next day. We didn't know what to expect from this place, and we were very happy! The room was nice size and clean. The bed was comfy. The room overlooked the gorge. Then we had our romantic 5-course meal....

Spent 2 nights in the tree house. Fun, clean, unique, and the staff is so accommodating. food is great, reasonably priced, and helped us with dietary restraints. As for the zip lines, so much fun especially from a guy who is scared of heights. Our guides were great and patient and a lot of fun. Just a very special place... More

My husband and I planned this vacation after a friend of his had visited. We flew in from SW Florida for a 3 night stay. We stayed during the week and it felt like the place was all ours. We were quickly greeted by friendly staff as soon as we stepped out of our car. We stayed in a jacuzzi... More
