We just returned from a long weekend at Glen-Ella and look forward to our next visit! The inn was lovely. The staff was extremely gracious and welcoming. The room was meticulously clean. This was our first visit so we discovered that a queen room was a little small for us. If you like extra space request a king room. Also...

This is a beautiful historic inn. We loved our room (we stayed in one of the penthouse rooms), it was beautiful included mini frig, fireplace, and Jacuzzi tub. As a winter guest we would have loved to have a TV in the room since you can't really enjoy the balcony for coffee in the morning or early evening relaxing due...

We visited Glen-Ella for the first time with good friends. We had a really good time with our friends and enjoyed the seclusion of the Inn. Our room was on the second floor and you should be aware that if you run the heat in the bathroom and your hair dryer at the same time, you will trip the breaker....

Everything was wonderful- layout, service, food, etc. We brought our kids, who did remarkably well without a TV in the room. The Garden house was a very nice touch and provided the TV/movies/games option when needed.

My wife and I stayed here as a last minute getaway. We were very impressed with the entire staff, restaurant and room. Just a great overall experience. We both ordered the lamb was outstanding as was the wine. We got up the next morning to a great breakfast before heading out for a hike 15 minutes down the road at...

The rooms are so beautifully appointed at this inn. Everything has a high attention to detail. Linens are 600 thread count and mattresses are so comfortable! Dinner and breakfast was probably some of the best food I have experienced in awhile. But be warned if you are looking for a TV there are none in the rooms. This is for...

When we need a break, we book a weekend at Glen-Ella. In fact, we tend to turn to this wonderful little inn when life just gets hectic, and we want to recharge. I haven't had time to write my reviews, but we did just that in November AND December. Instead of buying each other gifts at Christmas, we rewarded ourselves...

I had the pleasure of having my wedding here at Glen Ella Springs and it was, to say the least "incredible." I could not have envisioned anything better. The owners Ed and Luci Kivett went above and beyond with every little detail. Luci was always quick to respond to my emails and phone calls, and answered every question I asked....

We loved staying at Glen Ella for Thanksgiving. It is a small Inn with a large heart for service. Everyone wanted to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms are rustic and decorated beautifully. The food was the best I have had anywhere. We have been to the Ritz,etc. The food and service beats everyone hands down. We loved...
