Glen-Ella Perfect Getaway

5 on August 27, 2014

We needed a 2 day trip to the mountains to recharge our batteries. A 7 mile hike at Panther Creek Falls and a perfect stay at the Glen-Ella Springs Inn was just the ticket. The food, accommodations and staff were perfect - not to mention and gorgeously quiet location.


Glen-Ella visit

Such a calm, tranquil getaway with wonderful innkeepers and staff! We will be back!


Best GA getaway so far

5 on August 25, 2014

We go away somewhere in GA every anniversary and this was our favorite. We enjoyed breakfast out on the patio facing the garden while hummingbirds fed on flowers nearby. Delicious food, warm hospitality (not snobby!), cute, cozy rooms, great balcony view of property (rooms in back like ours have better view), fire pit, pool - a great bed & breakfast getaway. We even bought the strawberry/raspberry jam to take home b/c we loved it. Keurig coffeemakers in room a plus! The guest house is great if it rains - like your own living room. Packaged snacks and drinks provided to tide you over til dinner.


Great Get Away

Glen Ella Stay

4.0 on August 10, 2014

Our experience at Glen Ella was outstanding. The rooms were well-kept, the meals were superb and the service by the owners and staff was better than most world-class hotels we've visited. The setting is one of the highlights.


Wonderful Getaway

We spent a delightful weekend at Glen-Ella. The food was excellent with the freshest flavors of the summer. Breakfast on the patio was truly special--enjoying creative breakfast treats while we watched as the birds explored beautiful flowering plants in the lush gardens. The hosts and staff were outstanding.
