First time for a bed and breakfast and all I can say is WOW. Glen-Ella Springs Inn is this quite, rustic yet romantic, charming place where you can get away from it all. The owners were very nice to work with when making the reservations...More

Dining on site is a better option. Just walk down stairs and sit outside to enjoy the mountain air. Driving to town for diner takes a bit more time.

Comprehensive menu offering well prepared fare in a wonderful setting. Each of us had a different seafood entree and everyone was impressed. Opt to dine al fresco on their nice patio.

I begin with a confession: This is not my first review/commentary regarding Glen Ella. Total transparency - I have frequented Glen-Ella, both as diner and overnight guest for more than 20 years. Biased? Understatement I suppose, but last evening's dinner has prompted an update. Preface:...More
