It is becoming a tradition for my husband and I to keep a "Getaway by Ourselves" jar on our dresser to save up for a brief time away to recharge. We aren't able to go very far as our lives revolve around teens and their acivities and sports, but we have found our favorite place to go. In fact, I think I'll rename the jar, "Glen Ella Springs Getaway"! As soon as we leave the inn, we both begin talking about when we can escape for another short trip.
This time we came to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary, and even though it was such a short time, we felt like time stood still there. It is so easy to just leave all the noises and technology behind!
It's really just what everyone else says....and so much more! Innkeepers and staff work so hard to make your stay wonderful. The rooms are so clean and little touches make your stay special. The grounds are so beautiful and so well-kept, and we had the best time sitting on the porches, reading, talking and watching the birds. It really is perfect.
Besides all that, what makes this our favorite place to retreat is that you can enjoy all that, and when it is time for dinner, you have one of the best restaurants in Georgia a few steps from you. We both tried a different dish this time, and it was even better than usual. When we left, we sat outside on the porch, listening to the rain on the tin roof. Heaven.
All the other guests there look so happy and relaxed; it really is such a great place to get away from the craziness of life.
The "Glen Ella Springs Getaway" jar is going to be filled soon, I hope! :) Every time I think of buying something I don't need, I will think of that time we shared there, and I will gladly drop it in there instead! :)
We hope to be back soon!
