My family visits Lake Rabun in northeast Georgia often. When we visit, we have had dinner at Glen-Ella Springs Inn and thought it was magnificent. This past weekend was my anniversary, and I decided to take my wife for a night away. We had a king room, and it was extremely nice, with a very comfortable bed. The bath ammenities were nice. There are no telephones and no TV (there are in a garden house) which was an added plus. The Inn is situated in the north Georgia forest, and is an old hotel/homestead. It looks like an old stagecoach inn that has been rennovated and decorated tastefully. The garden is magnificent, the pool is nice, and there seemed to be hundreds of rocking chairs perched along porches all around the inn. On the garden, my wife and I decided that it is actually a hummingbird convention center. Watching the hummingbirds was my favorite part of the stay, except for the food. We had a great dinner (as good as anything I have experienced elsewhere) and it deserves the award received as one of the Top Ten Dining Destinations in Georgia. I could go on and on, and my wife and I could have stayed for a week, but alas, we had to leave. We will be back. Our name here is KidsGoToo. On that point, we used it as a romantic getaway, but I saw children there and what was fantastic about that was the children seemed to have fun and were well behaved. I think the parents had something to do with that, but Glen Ella has a "family" policy of having everyone (guests included) hold down the noise after 10 pm. It was done very tastefully and becuase of that policy, I slept like a baby.
