Outstanding Stay!

5 on July 07, 2014

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

20th Anniversary Weekend

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.

Peaceful mountain escape

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.

EV friendly

This is a rustic, historic inn, so some typical modern amenities (such as TVs in rooms) are missing. Of course, some guests appreciate that. They were very accommodating to help me recharge my electric vehicle.

The perfect Getaway!!

4.6 on June 14, 2014

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.
