Wonderful location just 1 1/2 hours north of Atlanta GA. Ed & Luci Kivett, Innkeepers, truly try to deliver an experience that will exceed your expectations. RELAX. The service staff is phenomenal. Dinner is a MUST DO! WOW Make a reservation! Visit the fantastic GARDEN. My wife and I enjoyed nearby hiking at Tallulah Gorge State Park, Minnehaha Falls, North... More

My husband booked the Penthouse room at the Inn for my 40th birthday and it was wonderful. We checked in and were shown up to our room which was lovely - exactly like the pictures on their website. We chilled out on the deck drinking our champagne and watched deer run across the grass which was lovely. Dinner was also... More

Glen Ella is relaxing, rustic, and rural. If you are looking to get away from the hustle of the city and techno world then I highly recommend this inn. The gravel road into the inn does create a dusty car though. The inn is well maintained. The bed comfortable. The breakfast exceptional. The television, internet, clock, and snacks are in... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend at Glen Ella Springs for my 60th Birthday. Our King room was beautiful and the rocking chairs on the porch were our favorite spot for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The breakfast was fabulous and different each morning. The dinners are farm to table delicious and served in the... More

We have stayed here several times and it is a wonderful place to enjoy the mountains in a peaceful and beautiful setting. Ed and his staff will make your stay the best ever. We will be back if the fall when the leaves are beautiful.

Glen Ella Springs Inn is a beautiful rustic and elegant. The room was very pretty and comfortable. Loved that there was no TV in the room. The Garden provided an enjoyable meander. Relaxed on the porch in the rocking chairs while watching the stars.

The breakfast was scrumptious, the room clean and comfortable, and the grounds exquisite. This retreat was a delicious treat from beginning to end. The owners were so nice and friendly and more than accommodating. We hiked around the property, and explored the gardens and hotel, and especially enjoyed the hospitality room where we played a late night game until midnight!... More

We were hiking in the nearby area and decided to have dinner at the Glen-Ella Springs Inn Restaurant. We had one of the absolute best dinners EVER! The food was amazing, as was the service. During dinner, a bad storm began, and we did not want to make the 40-mile drive in the heavy rain on the winding roads back... More

My husband and I booked one night here for a last-minute getaway, and it was really a special trip. Wish we could have stayed longer! The Queen room overlooking the lovely meadow was very comfortable. We enjoyed exploring the garden and grounds, then took a late-afternoon dip in the pool. Sitting on the rocking-chair porch before going down for dinner... More
