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

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

We had a very enjoyable weekend! The Inn surpassed our expectations! Excellent food and service! Sherry was an awesome server. The Inn provided a quiet, adult, relaxing atmosphere. We plan to return soon.

Upon arriving at the Inn, we were greeted very warmly. The owners and all of the employees were friendly, engaging, and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable. We only planned to have dinner one night in the restaurant at the Inn. The food was so good, we went there each night! We booked our next trip during Thanksgiving again. We... More

We booked the entire lodge for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Cocktail reception Friday and a seated dinner Saturday. Luci and her staff could not have been more gracious hosts. The food and service were excellent throughout the weekend. The Garden House made for a great hospitality suite for all of our guests, many of whom hadn't seen each other... More

After my first visit there I was sold! The Inn is so beautiful. I fell in love with their secluded location and beautiful gardens. The... More
