Is Banning Mills right for you?
We are an Adventure Destination. We are not the Ritz in the woods! We are in the middle of thousands of acres and we have all kinds of critters around here. You may even see or hear some during your stay. Some may even show up at your door on occasion! We are not a hotel, we are not a chain organization and we are not a luxury resort! What we are is different and unique. If you love natural beauty, history, comfortable, unique rooms, hearty country breakfasts and most of all if you love Fun and Adventure, then Banning Mills is right for you!

**We love being one of a kind!
