You can feel the stress roll off your shoulders as you drive down a gravel road to a charming B&B Inn set among 17 acres! The queen room was small but perfectly comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of choices, we ate outside on the patio overlooking the garden. I enjoyed relaxing in the pool and... More

My husband and I spent the night last week and loved the inn. The pool, gardens, deer in the field, tasty food and guesthouse were all a treat. Stay at the Glen Ella Springs Inn!! You'll be glad you did. Becky and Clark

What a perfect inn tucked away in the mountains! We had the three room suite which was perfect for two adults and two kids. The dinner at the restaurant was quite good and breakfast in the morning was delicious. I wish we had more time to tour the gardens. Highly recommend!

We stayed for two nights at Glen Ella Springs over 4th of July break. We had a really wonderful time - very tranquil, great service, great setting, and excellent restaurant. The owners have done a great job maintaining the property. The last time we were there was for dinner about 15 years ago, and the quality was just as good... More

Everything was perfect, from our cozy, rustic but upscale room with southern charm and rocking chairs on the deck, the pool was perfect on a hot day, the owners and staff were beyond lovely and the food was excellent. We will be back for sure!

We have been to Glen Ella many times. We started coming in the fall, and we loved the beautiful colors and cool weather, sometimes venturing out to sit around the outdoor bonfire. Then we began to visit in the winter, and we discovered how relaxing it is to sit around one of the cozy fireplaces in some rooms. Spring came... More

Old, historic hotel that is still rustic, but renovated to modern accommodations with upscale, luxury amenities including robes. Gourmet breakfasts included. Dinner not included; an outstanding restaurant, popular in the area, expensive but worth it. Nice view of lawn, gardens and flowers, and mountains from deck. Friendly, helpful staff. Separate recreation building with TV, refreshments. Nice, outdoor pool. Highly recommended!
