My wife and I stayed here as a last minute getaway. We were very impressed with the entire staff, restaurant and room. Just a great overall experience. We both ordered the lamb was outstanding as was the wine. We got up the next morning to a great breakfast before heading out for a hike 15 minutes down the road at...

Restaurant is a real treat! The inn is an idyllic spot for guests to this special part of the country. We consider Glen-Ella and its charming proprietors to be a tremendous asset to our North Georgia community.

The rooms are so beautifully appointed at this inn. Everything has a high attention to detail. Linens are 600 thread count and mattresses are so comfortable! Dinner and breakfast was probably some of the best food I have experienced in awhile. But be warned if you are looking for a TV there are none in the rooms. This is for...

When we need a break, we book a weekend at Glen-Ella. In fact, we tend to turn to this wonderful little inn when life just gets hectic, and we want to recharge. I haven't had time to write my reviews, but we did just that in November AND December. Instead of buying each other gifts at Christmas, we rewarded ourselves...

I had the pleasure of having my wedding here at Glen Ella Springs and it was, to say the least "incredible." I could not have envisioned anything better. The owners Ed and Luci Kivett went above and beyond with every little detail. Luci was always quick to respond to my emails and phone calls, and answered every question I asked....

We loved staying at Glen Ella for Thanksgiving. It is a small Inn with a large heart for service. Everyone wanted to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms are rustic and decorated beautifully. The food was the best I have had anywhere. We have been to the Ritz,etc. The food and service beats everyone hands down. We loved...

We discovered Glen Ella 10 or 12 years ago. My first attraction was that the only TV was in the lobby of the Inn. My positive attraction was reinforced by the fact that there are no phones in the rooms. The "over the top" attraction was the quality of the food in the restaurant. After a few visits, we became...

We loved this place. The grounds, the inn, and the restaurant are simply great. We stay two days and look forward to going back again in the future. Our king size bed was very comfortable and for a building this old it was extremely well taken care of. Breakfast and dinner both days and everything was terrific. Their large pool...

Two night stay while fly fishing the Soque. What a wonderful experience from our initial greeting to packed breakfast to go each morning! Lucy and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and so comfortable. Grounds were well kept. We had dinner one night there and the lamb chops were memorable. Kelly was...
