“Spiritual Recharge!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by some of the recent updates by the new owners, Ed & Lucy. The room was most comfortable, and the grounds were immaculate! The breakfast was outstanding! We highly recommend this wonderful "secluded get-away!"

The staff is friendly and welcoming. Dining is excellent. Beautiful, relaxing location. Rooms are comfortable with fine linens.

Room Tip: We enjoy an end room facing the trees and field.

My husband and I recently traveled to Glen Ella to celebrate my birthday and participate in the "Wine Highway" weekend. Glen Ella blew me away! It was absolutely beautiful. The staff were all extremely attentive and the owner, Ed, was so sweet and helpful. Our room was well decorated and very clean! Also, the food is INCREDIBLE! Each morning breakfast was to die for and our dinner at Glen Ella left us both "fat and happy". You will not regret choosing Glen Ella as your weekend getaway!

The inn keepers Ed and Luci are delightful host. I was greeted by a friendly smile and by room was ready 1.5 prior to check in time. The room was warm and inviting. Very Cozy. There is a gathering space where you could watch tv hang out and meet other guest if you are so inclined. The view was wonderful and Miss Ann make amazing fresh cinnamon rolls/ biscuits and homemade strawberry jam. The pool was beautifully maintained, although too cool to use it. The fitness center is the beautiful terrain in which you can hike on God's tread mill. :) Highly recommend.

the evening meal superb! tub bath- ahhh! cozy room- divine! Ed and Luci are delightful innkeepers. I treated myself to an overnight getaway not too far from home but felt like i'd been gone more than 24 hours!

Room Tip: not a bad room at the inn!

My wife and I received a warm welcome as soon as we arrived to the Inn. The innkeepers are extremely friendly and knowledgable about the area. They had so many ideas of what we could do, we were sad we could only stay one night. They gave us perfect directions to many terrific hikes and waterfalls.

We spent 4 hours hiking to one of the most gorgeous waterfalls we have ever seen. When we returned we took showers and relaxed before eating our hearts out. My wife had the Macadamia Chicken and I chose the Steak and Lobster. The steak was cooked perfectly and my wife loved her plate. We drank good wine and finished the night with lava cake. YUM! The service was terrific.

I would like to address a knock I have read about the Inn. The noise was sort of an issue in the queen room, we could hear people walking next door. But hey, its 120 years old...what do you expect?! Everyone person staying there was so nice, barely anybody made a peep in their rooms so it didn't hardly bother us. The price was $165 which included a gift basket. We paid for the kindness of the people, quaint atmosphere and unbelievable warmth from the Inn keepers. We are going back during the summer....it was 19 degrees in the evening, so we coulnd't explore the grounds.

Totally recommend! Thanks Ed & Luci Kivett!
