My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our 10 anniversary here. We stayed in one of the tree houses. It was wonderful. The staff was so nice and friendly. Beth and Penny made our stay special. Enjoyed the hikes and even crossed the suspension bridge. Beautiful area. Looking forward to going back. Maybe we'll even try the zip line....

It was a wonderful experience. I went by myself to relax and face my fear of not liking heights so much. At the start, I had an issue at check-in which worried me a little in terms of expectations, but it was resolved alright and everything from then on was lovely. I stayed in a jacuzzi room that was pretty... More

Zip line staff was great. Front desk excellent. Only the gift shop girls were a little SURLY, which explains why nobody buys much there. Breakfast was great as well as the reservation team. Kids loved it! I will go back and stay way from the shop. The kids are already asking to return.

My husband and I booked an overnight get away that included the Falcon/Hawk Hunt. Dale, the Falconer, was so nice and knowledgeable. We stayed in a tree house (number 56) and found it very clean at check in. I was actually surprised at how clean the space was. We reserved dinner and ordered ahead (which is a must, you cannot...

This is a must visit place. It is a total package of adventure (on zip lines, aerial bridges, etc.) lodging, food and staff. Two staff in particular were especially helpful, Davy our zip line guide, and Haley our waitress. We loved every part of our time there. The Flight of the Falcon was terrific, and hiking to the old mill... More

Took the whole family to Banning Mills for 2 nights to celebrate my wife and daughters birthday. The staff was awesome. Everyone was so friendly at the front desk, gift shop and dining room. We did level 3 of the canopy tour and our guides Jessie and John were funny and helpful. They made the zip line more fun than... More

Little did I know but my life was about to change forever. My best friend Jesse proposed to me on the zip line tour! He said that through the planning process Abby made things seamless for him in planning when and where to propose. She was so sweet the whole time and figured out all the details. I had no... More

Attended a business luncheon at Historic Banning Mills. After our lunch served at one of the outdoor pavilions, some of us decided to take a tour on the zip lines. We did the "bunny" course. It was 9 lines and took about 1.5 hours. There were seven of us and we truly enjoyed it. If we had had more time... More
