We have stayed at this inn for a number of years. Although there are new owners from the original ones, it is still wonderful. The new owners and their chef continue to offer the best hospitality and excellent food. It is a pleasure to stay here.

Our niece was married at Glenn-Ella Springs Inn. Every detail was perfect, from the rooms to each delicious bite of food, all prepared at the Inn by their talented staff. The innkeepers are personable and hardworking, but make you feel like you are staying with loving family. The grounds and gardens are so pretty and well maintained, the flowers were beautiful, a surprise for October. The room was comfortable and the view of meadow and distant mountains was a beautiful sight from the rocking chairs on the porch overlooking. We will be back to see Ed and Luci again, as well as taste Ann's delicious biscuits and red eye gravy!

Glen-Ella is such a diamond in the rough. Very secluded but such a refreshing place to escape. The inn keepers could not be more accommodating to the needs of their guests. The food is fabulous and the rooms are very comfortable. I would highly recommend Glen-Ella Springs Inn.

I have been fortunate to stay at Glen-Ella Springs Inn on numerous occasions for both pleasure and corporate retreats. Whether visiting for relaxation or business, the staff works hard to insure attention to every detail. You will not find better dining at a B&B in North Georgia, from the appetizer to the dessert, dinner was delicious and upscale and breakfast was a treat with sausage, cheese and egg casserole, home-made biscuits and jam, creamy stone ground grits, and fresh-squeezed OJ. I am checking my calendar now to find my next opportunity to visit!

It had been 15 years since we stayed here and this time was as wonderful as the last! Although there are new owners, they have continued the excellent tradition we enjoyed all those years ago. The chef is fantastic and the breakfast is mouthwatering--bring a big appetite when you come. The setting is smack in the country, so be prepared to sit back and take it easy. A wonderful getaway from your bustling, busy life.

The first thing you notice is the quiet. Next, perhaps, the beauty. By then, you know you've found a very special place. Slept on softest sheets I've ever slept on (and they sell them). Had amazing meals. Took the cooking class and had a blast; Chef Marc Badon is wonderful and talented. Owners, Ed and Luci Kivett, treat you like guests in their own home. Glen-Ella is where you go when you want to get away from it all. Built in the late 1800s, the rooms are luxuriously rustic, and include a sound machine, spa robes and coffee makers -- but NO televisions. WiFi is complimentary and works most of the time; cell reception is a crap shoot unless you have Verizon. The covered porches with rockers are wonderful, the views are magnificent.

Pleasant Inn with outstanding staff and Innkeeper/owner. Particularly nice entertainment in the uniqure boat ride/fireworks for July 4. Beautiful grounds! Absolutely nothing negative to say about such a wonderful Inn.

What a wonderful mountain getaway! My husband and I took a chance to take a vacation before the summer got too busy, and we're both so glad we did it at Glen Ella! The staff was warm and friendly and helped us plan and arrange what we wanted to do in the area. True examples of hospitality. Our delicious breakfast each morning we enjoyed in view of the glorious gardens. Each evening we relaxed in the welcoming garden room to wind down our day. As much as we enjoyed the events during the day, it was a struggle not to leave the cozy inn! A treat not to miss!
