WOW!!! That is all I can say. This was the most thrilling, challenging zip line course I have ever done. We spent the weekend here, hiking and zip lining. Combined with relaxation, fine dining. This place is a little piece of Heaven. Staff was wonderful, kind, accommodating and helpful. The lodge is rustic and beautiful. I do not know why... More

We did the zip lining for beginners and our group was really fun. Plus the instructors made it easy and safe. We stayed overnight in the treehouse which was very nice. It... More

I booked a cottage at Banning Mill during a weekend visiting relatives in the area. The property is on a creek and was the previous location of several mills, hence the name. There are remnants of the old mills and associated buildings on the grounds. The cabins are very basic but clean and pretty comfortable. Don't go there for 400... More

The treehouse and jacuzzi was romantic and relaxing. We enjoyed a 1 hour horseback ride and level 1 zip line. Cassie ,at the front desk, is very friendly and informative. Josh, the night manager, is friendly, welcoming and goes out of his way to make your time there special. Definitely one of Georgia's best kept secrets. We are wanting to... More

Initially had planned to vacation on the East Coast and then Hurricane Matthew made us cancel those plans. This was the best Plan B vacation we ever took!
