This was a birthday surprise for my husband. The visit exceeded our expectations. The best part was the service and the incredible details that made our visit so special. I have already recommended the Inn and the restaurant and have only been back a few days! Leslie
Wonderful quiet, low-key setting to focus on each other and our marriage. Beautiful accommodations and natural surroundings. The Lord blessed out weekend through the hosts and service providers of the inn. Delicious breakfast and dinner on the veranda overlooking the English gardens enhanced our stay and romantic weekend.
The perfect place to get away and disconnect. If you need access to television, computers, etc, the garden house has what you need. Otherwise, relax on the porch in a rocking chair and enjoy the peace. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food was delicious. I liked it so much, I would love to stay there for a week or two without leaving. There are not enough activities at the hotel to stay in that long but there are activities in the local area.
We stayed three lovely nights at Glen Ella in June, 2014, and had a ball. Hiked to Panther Creek one day, walked 320 steps up and down at Tallulah Gorge on other day, and went to see Minihaha Falls on our first day. And we're 71 yo!!! Our dinners were excellent - especially shrimp and grits. I could not recommend it more highly.
My company has used Glen Ella for management meetings twice now. Debbie, the event planner, is top notch. She coordinated all details with me in a timely manner, so that when the team arrived for the meeting, all they needed to focus on was what time to show up for dinner! I would recommend this place for those who need a getaway, and for corporate events. It's beautiful, relaxing, and the food is amazing. Emma H
We attended our granddaughters wedding this weekend. It rained most of the time but the owners and staff did all that was possible to make us comfortable. The weather cleared slightly for the rehearsal dinner and wedding. Food was great, owners and staff were great and accommodations were great. We highly recommend it. John and Eva Simpson
We've stayed at Glen-Ella three times.Each time it was wonderful.The food is excellent. The people who work there are fun to talk with and very efficient.And the laid back atmosphere is so relaxing.We are also glad that we can now get a glass of wine or a cold beer! We will definitely be back. Joe Bruckner
This place is wonderful and gorgeous. I am a teacher, and needed to get away for Spring Break. This place was perfect to relax and have a nice, romantic trip. The food is amazing, so it's a must that you reserve a night at their restaurant. I also ordered the wine, cheese, crackers, and fruit tray and it was great as well...a nice surprise for a loved one. You need to try this place!
We came to Glen Ella for a few days over MLK weekend. It was really nice. We stayed in the penthouse which is just a nice big room, particularly if you come with other people and want to just spend time in the room together. I enjoyed that they have a garden house where guests can relax and meet one another. The staff was great. The restaurant dinners are very good, however, the breakfast is nothing special; it's buffet of scrambled eggs, bagels and a few other items. I was quite surprised since the dinners are so good. Overall, I would definitely recommend Glen Ella as a cozy and relaxing get away.
I booked on short notice for a quick overnight winter getaway from Atlanta. It is a beautiful inn and I can't wait to book a return trip during another season. I was looking forward to just relaxing and reading in my room since it was very cold outside. I booked one of the suites and I loved it. Plenty of room and very cozy. It is nice that dinner is offered, since once you are on the property you really don't want to leave (especially later in the evening).
I had the most amazing time at Glen-Ella Springs Inn, relaxing enjoying the small town hospitality, taking in beautiful views of deer, camping out in front of the cozy fireplace, etc. The breakfast was lovely. The staff were genuinely warm and helpful. I needed to get away from Atlanta for a weekend, and this was the perfect escape for me to recharge my battery for the upcoming year. Truly exceptional!
We spent 2 beautiful, cold and frosty, December nights at Glen-Ella. Frost on the pasture in the morning. Toasty fires in the lobby, garden house, and dining room. We encourage all of you who love to cook to take a class with Chef Bill. We learned to make sauces, soup, and Brie in puff pastry. Yummy fun!
Several veterans felt especially honored to be hosted by the excellent staff at Glen- Ella Springs Inn this Veterans Day 2013. The room we stayed in was top of the line. Our dinner and breakfast were the highest quality of cuisine and atmosphere. The service superb including many extras. The scenery was so relaxing and the room extremely restful. We are ready to go back!!!
Awesome place to dine and stay the night. The service from the owners and staff is wonderful!! The rooms are perfect for a cozy romantic quiet peaceful stay. We stayed there on our honeymoon night. Breakfast is more than any complimentary breakfast I have ever seen. Best complimentary breakfast I have ever eaten. We have no complaints!!! Ten+ stars if we could!
We spent our 35th anniversary at the Inn. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The staff and owners were attentive and very friendly. It is close to several interesting areas of North Georgia to visit. I wa ould recommend you have dinner it is something that you should not miss.
Everything was exactly how it appeared on their website, actually the Inn was even more elegant and inviting than we expected. I don't usually write reviews, but made an exception for this resort. I always find an issue with accomodations, especially n the cleanliness department, refreshingly this was not the case at Glen-Ellla Springs Inn, everyhing was spotless and first class. We booked the Mountain Escape in a 3 room suite. The room, amenities and location were outstanding. We dined in the romantic dining room and on the terrace by the world class gardens. The chef's creations were delicious, the meals we enjoyed were some of the best we've ever had. The innkeepers were personable and gracious. I would go back in a heartbeat!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Glen-Ella Springs Inn. I loved the room we were in. Felt like we were in a private cabin, but with all the amenities of an upsale hotel. We had a delicious dinner at the inn our first night there and breakfast was a nice buffet. A beautiful, tranquil place to getaway for a weekend!
My wife and I stayed in a wonderful room, with amazing views, and were treated like royalty. The food was fantastic. My wife says, simply but with passion, "We just wandered and did our sightseeing, and then they fed us awesome food!" I am very grateful to the staff and crew for the very kind and loving way they run the place. We are headed back for our first anniversary!
Glen-Ella was exactly what we wanted -- someplace not far from Atlanta and yet far enough to be a different world. Very relaxing 3 days. Loved the food, the hummingbirds, the rocking chairs, the view, the garden, the friendliness of staff and owners. Far enough from the city to see stars at night, and close enough to small towns with nice restaurants, shops, and galleries. Plenty for the hikers to do as well. Rooms are clean and attractive and apparently vary in size and level of quietness. Once everyone settles in the for the night, it's very quiet. You can tell this is a well-loved place -- by owners, staff, and guests!
Even though it had been a very rainy summer, the grounds and gardens were spectacular. It was so peaceful strolling around. Everyone was very nice, and everyone we met was friendly and we had fun meeting other boarders.
