The visit was decent, although during dinner I saw multiple cockroaches and mice . I asked my waitress (Skylar) about it and she admitted it's been a problem for a while. I left before I got my food due to this. I wouldn't recommend eating there!!

5 Yeas ago I visited Historic /banning Mills to Zip Line. It was a great adventure (even though my wife hurt her leg on the first Zipline. The spotter didn't do his job!!) So last weekend, October 23-25, 2020, We stayed two nights at one of the Cozy Cabins. We had a beautiful view of Snake creek/river gorge. Loved the sound of running water. It was also fun to watch those zip-liners go zipping by our cabin. The breakfasts alone are worth the stay. I am looking forward to another visit. Maybe the all day adventure of zip lining. Thanks Banning Mills for a wonderful time.

Our family of 4 stayed there for 3 days and had a fantastic time on the Level 4 zip line tour. I would highly recommend it as a family or couples trip. We loved hiking around the property and following the trails, its beautiful. The guides, Hunter and Josh were awesome. All of the staff we encountered were very nice and helpful 100% of the time. We felt very safe on the zip line course and the bridges, but the wood towers going to them need some maintenance. The facilities need some upkeep. We knew it's rustic and the website says "not the Ritz in the woods", but a good scrubbing, a sander and a couple gallons of paint would go a long way. Rustic and historic does not have to equal dirty and unmaintained. Our loft cabin had dirt and dust in every corner, the ceiling was water stained plywood and if you brushed against a wall you got splinters. The lodge corners and walls also could have used a good cleaning. The cabin had minimal lighting and so did the lodge (so you can't see the dirt perhaps). Spend some money on mildew resistant paint, a better cleaning service and saving for upgraded electric. It really wouldn't take much to make it a lot better. If there isn't enough profit, raise the prices $20 a person. The zip line tour prices are exactly the same as 7 years ago, the first time my husband and I went to Banning Mills. Without any improvement I would stay at a hotel in town next time and just enjoy the great adventure tours they offer.

Thanks for your review. We will look into your suggestions but I will say that we do daily checks and maintenance as needed on our towers and all aspects of the aerial adventure park system. It is difficult to keep outside structures looking brand new. Rooms, We will look at more lighting but it is rare that we have complaints on this. Our rooms are clean and Do Not have mildew. We will bring this review to the housekeepers to make sure they are not missing corners for dust. That is a big no no. The inside of the cabin rooms are definitely wood, Most people do not rub up against the walls but we know the cabin room you were in and will definitely see if there is any wood pieces that may need to be sanded. We appreciate your suggestions. We do look at all criticisms to see how we can improve. We do not take them lightly nor ignore them Thanks again for letting us know your thoughts.

We went to Historic Banning Mills for 5 days (Wed through Sunday) and had a GREAT time! We fished, ziplined, hiked, and explored. We had dinner several times at the lodge and it was very good. Four courses! Breakfast was good at the lodge as well. My girls LOVED the zip line. They want on the level 3 tour and ziplined for 3.5 hours. And the price was not outrageous. We really enjoyed our time at Historic Banning Mills and will definitely go back!

Great place! I had an amazing time ziplining at Banning Mills, and my group had amazing instructors! They were very patient with my over the age 50 group. I look forward to going back next year and participating in other activities- kayaking, horseback riding, and ziplining again. The guides also take pictures to document your adventures.
