Everything about this trip was amazing, from our accommodations in one of the Tree House rooms to the zip line tours we did to the delicious food at both breakfast lunch and dinner.

I would've given 5 stars if the front desk/ check in wouldn't have been so rude. It was our first time and I asked about wall as add on and she acted like I was idiot for asking, and then said the website clearly shows you can't do wall on Saturday. We loved the guides and zip lines. We were... More

We are very sorry you felt the front office staff were rude. Sometimes when we are checking in 60 people at one time, we do get a little side tracked. We will take your comment seriously and work with staff to present themselves in not so serious a way to guests. Our groups are 10 or less which is standard... More

We went on a Saturday and did the flight plan plus package for about 3 hours with great guides and fun zip lines and bridges. (Bought through groupon or sweetjack sites). We then stayed at the lodge and had good service, clean comfortable rooms and great views. On Sunday we went hiking around all the trails and could have easily... More

Our main reason to be here at Banning Mills is to preserve the history and eco system of the Snake Creek Gorge. You are right, it is a pretty unique area of Ga. The zipline canopy tours are one of the ways we have to help preserve this area. We are proud of the conservation center and we Thank All... More

Went for the day - and stayed in a minimalist lodge room. Stay there for the convenience-- not the amenities. The is food, but only if you have a reservation in advance. The gourmet dinner was certainly very good, but not more than a zagat 18 or 19 rating. We left before breakfast was served (8am) , so that was... More

Glad you and your son were able to do the level 4 extreme tour. This will definitely get you out of your comfort zone but well worth the experience. Our WiFi is free but it is not like in the city. The rural area, the gorge and the metal roofs do not help in any way. We are constantly on... More

I took my two daughters and my granddaughter for a two-night stay in two of the tree houses. The rooms were so clean, beds were comfortable. The scenery was breath taking and our tree houses backed up to a little creek and waterfall. We used the available paddle boats on the little lake close to our place. We had the... More

We were married only minutes from Banning Mills and wanted somewhere local to spend our wedding night. He booked us a treehouse and it was perfect!

We recently spent two nights (and one day) here for a friend's wedding. We stayed in a cabin, which was down two steep mini hills (quite difficult to navigate in the dark/in heels).
