4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Peaceful and unique

Owners and staff were great and so friendly and kind. If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet, quaint and unique place that isn’t your usual large chain hotel experience, I definitely recommend Banyan.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property was beautiful and well kept. Communication with the owners was not the best as they do not answer the phone number that is listed and only communicated through the Expedia chat.

If you like pretentious spirituality and no clean towels this the place for you

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

A true sanctuary!

It’s called a “sanctuary” for a reason! Very quiet, peaceful location, and yet only 15 min drive to downtown. Appears the property is up for sale, so if you want to experience this oasis, I would do it sooner than later! The property is vegan only, so being an omnivore, was a little bit of an adjustment. The room is quite comfortable, but definitely not fancy. Very relaxing to stroll through the grounds.
