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

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 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

My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins along the river for several nights while zip lining and kayaking. The cabin was cute and clean with a nice rustic feel. The grounds are beautifully tucked in the rolling hills of forest and streams. A very relaxing venue. We did get a look at the inside of one of... More
