5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2010

My wife and I, along with another couple, spent Valentine's weekend at this magnificent bed and breakfast at Glen Ella Springs. The owners, Ed and Luci, have created a wonderful facility that is known throughout the area has having some of the best food (in ample supply) that can be found anywhere in Georgia. The service and room accomodations are excellant and provide for maximum comfort, privacy and relaxation, with rooms having a porch offering panaramic views of the meadow and surrounding mountains. Not far from many attractions, Glen Ella Springs is only a few miles from beautiful Lake Burton, Clayton, Helen and other nearby towns. Anne and I highly recommend that you visit this bed and breakfast best kept secret. Enjoy your time away from the rat race of everyday life. Larry D. Moss, Augusta, GA

This is the perfect place for a getaway. No in-room television takes the world away for a while. There is a television "room" but when surrounded by this peace, why ruin it with the real world? Ed and Luci are gracious and friendly hosts--and Ed makes a mean apple pancake!

We will return...hopefully regularly...to recharge our minds and souls in the serene beauty of this place.

We stayed at the Glen Ella last summer for a night and had a great time. So, we thought we would try it out on Valentines Day weekend and we loved it once again. The winter weather provided about 4 inches of snow on the rural landscape around the Inn and that was truly a beautiful site to behold. Ed and Luci take a very person stake in making sure all of their guests are treated like royalty. The outstanding food is the perfect compliment to the simplicity of a historic Inn. Rustic and quant. Quiet and very comfortable. The Glen Ella is a great get away any time of year.

We had the pleasure of attending a one-day business meeting at Glen-Ella. We're in the small resort lodging business and were very pleased with the ambience of the place. Our dinner was very good and the service excellent. While we did not get to spend the night, we were given a tour of several rooms. All were well-appointed, roomy, and reasonably priced for the quality of the resort.

my wife and i just got back from the most relaxing 4 days of our lives.ed kivett is truly a dedicated innskeeper.the entire staff starting from debbie, the inns manager,to there entire staff wait on you in a truly professional and courteous attitude.all requests were filled immediately.the on location restaurant,is a true gourmet feast.the grounds are as beautiful as the setting is in the middle of the mountains.waking up and enjoying your coffee sitting in the rocking chairs on your balcony while you see the deer, and turkeys in the nearby fields,or just rocking back and forth while enjoying some delicous habersham wine while enjoying the brisk clean mountain air.this is going to be my first of many future visits. a truly hidden gem.

We've been several times and love this quaint, out of the way restaurant.
The menu is limited, but I've tried most everything and it's all excellent.
It's close enough to Atlanta to make it a great weekend destination.
The pool and garden area is beautiful.
Highly recommend this lovely place!

Where do I start? My wife and I stay in B&B's all the time, and a lot are beautiful, but this was the most unique. It's a little rustic, but don't let that fool you; the accommodations are anything but outdated. The innkeepers are delightful, the staff is kind, and the service and ESPECIALLY the food is out of this world. The inn sits on a very large piece of land and the scenery is breathtaking. We can't wait to get back again. Thanks Ed and Luci!!!
