Banning Mills is amazing! My wife and I just celebrated our wedding anniversary with a trip to Banning Mills and look forward to many returns! Nature and adventure lovers dream. We zipline, hiked, and kayaked and had the time of our lives. The staff was so accomodating and friendly making the stay even more enjoyable.

This was our families first time zip lining, so we were concerned that the place that was the "Guinness Book" for largest zip line course was going to be too much for us. We found just the opposite. The courses are great for beginners all the way through to daredevil. We also did the "Crazy Squirrel" obstacle course which was... More

The RV park leaves much to be desired. Had to wait quite a while to get in even though it was set up with the care taker to meet us at the gate. Found out later he did not get out phone calls to his cell phone because of poor reception. After calling front desk many times they finally had... More

We stayed in one of the cottages. The room was clean, although we did have a few spiders in the bathroom. No big deal. We had a nice kitchenette, a "living room" with a futon, table and TV, and a bedroom. There was also a loft, which we never used, and a back patio with a couple of chairs to... More

We stayed at Banning Mills for a week in June 2014, and it was such an extraordinary experience I felt I had to share. My husband and I, our 12-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son were expecting it to be wonderful. in reality, it was nothing short of spectacular. We knew it would be fun and exciting (the longest zipline in... More

My husband and I went for the "Add Day Rush" June 1 & 2, 2014. I can't say enough about this place. I'm what you'd call a "food snob". We do travel quiet a bit and enjoy nice accommodations. We stayed in one of the two tree houses. Rustic. Casual. Clean. Comfy. A/C was adequate for the size of the... More

We try to be upfront on everything so no one is blindsided. The cancellation is "if you cancel OUTSIDE the 7 days before the check in date,... More

I stayed at HBM for four nights for Big Nerd Ranch. The location is fantastic, out in the woods in Georgia. I stayed in a creekside room (a bit of a misnomer - while it was on the creek, the creek was about 50ft below). The room has a big comfy bed, a hot tub, a TV, AC, fireplace, and... More

The setting and the staff deserve 5 stars!!! However, the accomadations could use some sprucing up. The bathroom sinked leaked and the beds/bedding are extremely uncomfortable and desperately need being replaced. The TV was so small, we could not see the subtitles on the movie we checked out from the dvd library.The sheet was was oversized for the double bed.... More

First time zip lining. Went with my 11 year old daughter. Had the best time of my life zip lining. The tour guides there were awesome. Walk you thru everything. Keeps you safe at all times and all you had to think about was how amazing the next zip will be. Jimmy the head tour guide is the man. They... More
