My sister and her husband gathered some close friends at the Glen Ella Springs Inn for a vow renewal ceremony and dinner. It was a beautiful setting and the staff made sure everything went smoothly. Wonderful dinner and excellent service. The rooms were comfortable and the scenery gorgeous. Looking forward to a future visit.

The facilities at this Inn are great---nice pool, lawn, outdoor dining, rocking chairs on the porches, etc. There is a separate building with TV, videos, and snacks, and the internet functions well. The restaurant is really quite good, does well with children (e.g., a small charge for split plates---and they are plenty big for 2), and has reasonably priced, well-selected... More

We absolutely loved the inn and the restaurant is amazing. Quiet getaway in north Georgia. The property is gorgeous, with a large meadow and stream out back. Perfect place to unwind and unplug. This is a wonderful place for some quiet reflection, or to relax after a nice hike.

We set out on our last-minute mountain trip without having made any reservations or plans. En route, we found Glen Ella on tripadvisor and liked what we saw. As soon as we arrived, we knew that we had gotten lucky. The inn is beautiful, the setting is perfect, and the room was spotless. Over 100 years old, the the inn... More

About a mile after you drive off a paved road and onto a gravel road, you will find this gem in the peaceful mountains of North Georgia. Even though the Inn is 100+ years old, it has all the modern comforts - like air conditioning. A very good breakfast is included and there is a nice restaurant on property. A... More

My son and his wife were married at Glen-Ella last weekend. The garden was in full bloom and the hotel was equally quaint. The wedding went flawlessly, thanks to Luci and Susan's efforts. The other professionals that were recommended by them were also very good at their craft. The whole weekend created fantastic memories for all.

My husband and I stayed at Glen-Ella Springs Inn for the 4th of July weekend. It was our first time staying and we loved it. The inn was built in 1875 and reflects its history in many ways, for example, much of the original wood walls and ceilings have been kept and restored. If you want modern and sound proof... More

My husband and I loved our stay. Our second floor room had had a lovely view from the balcony. The room was very clean and the bed was comfy. We awoke to the sound of birds chirping and a deer running across the grounds.The breakfast was delicious. Yummy fruit bowls, breads and strata. Dinner was also great. In fact, we... More

We had a peaceful and relaxing time at Glen Ella. The inn is on a gorgeous piece of land and the innkeepers created such a beautiful garden you can walk through. They took care of all the little details and made sure we had everything we needed. They also have a community room with a TV, complimentary drinks, and treats!... More

You’ll find a peaceful oasis as you approach this Inn located in a serene setting along a gravel road. The Kivetts, the Innkeepers, along with their staff, have created a welcoming, warm, restful place for you to come and create wonderful memories. If you enjoy the charm of an historical Americana setting, this 1875 inn will enchant you. If you... More
