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...

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...

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!

Recently spent the night with my wife as we did a North Georgia Farmers tour, and we loved it. The grounds are very pretty, there are some very pretty trails/waterfalls nearby, the rooms was very nice, and the staff was lovely. You can come to just relax on the grounds and decompress, or visit several relatively close by sites. We...

We couldn't have picked the more perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary! We were pleasantly surprised to receive an upgraded room at check-in.
