This was a great place to visit. I went here for a work retreat and it was so much more fun than I expected. Great for team building. I even gave zip lining a shot which I never thought I'd do. Tommie, Jesse and John were our guides and I think another guy but can't remember his name, but they...

Thank you Dee! Team building at Banning is great and unique way to learn all kinds of useful things to take back to the office and home. So glad you guys were able to experience the zip line canopy tour as well. Good for you for trying it out!

I brought my three boys and we stayed in a treehouse. We took the suspension bridge to the lodge for meals. The staff treated us like we were the most important guests there! They called us by name and were very accommodating. The kids loved the squirrel zip line. The hiking was really fun and not strenuous. There was so...

Good quiet place to meet and relax with your colleges. Great for team building events as well as formal staff meetings. Polite and friendly employees go above and beyond to help you. This makes up for the unfriendly owner.

Thank you Lonnie for your review! We are glad you had a good experience at Banning Mills. We are not sure which owner you were in contact with and do apologize if you felt mistreated. Sometimes the owners are running around and can seem distant and pre occupied but I am sure they did not mean to come across as...

I would recommend this place until it was time to check out. The cashier was rude and accused me and my group of eating breakfast. Well that wasn't true and was explained that only 5 of 13 ate. That was settled and I was charged and we left. I check my bank statement a day later only to see that...

We are very sad that Keesha did not feel she had a good experience at Banning Mills. Unfortunately, Keesha brought a group in that proceeded to eat breakfast at the buffet amongst 60 other bed and breakfast guests. They did not ask if they could eat nor did they offer to pay until confronted. The issue was that there were...

TLDR - The customer Service is great. The Zip-lining is great. The accommodations are okay. The food - maybe it was a bad day. Wife and I got there early in the morning for zipline (level 3) and stayed for a night with dinner and breakfast onsite. The Zip-lining was a blast. The employees from check-in all the way through...

First and Foremost I hope that if you attend you get Tyler and Jesse as your guides. They were amazing, and I mean amazing. There are some high level canopy bridges that intimidated two members of our group. The guides were patient, encouraging, and most of all comedic! There was a third guide, a rookie, named Noeh. He is going...
