The daughter and her boyfriend selected Glen Ella for their prom dinner last night for one simple reason - they never disappoint! The scenery, history and gardens provide the perfect pre event photo ops and the food and service are unsurpassed. Ed and Lucy are in their element with business acumen, humility and grace. Thanks for a great night!

The chef did a great job without having any advance warning that we are vegan. They were very accommodating, made it no big deal, and came up with something delicious, while our non-vegan friends raved about the rest of the menu and the fact that the restaurant has their favorite beer (Celtic?). Service was fantastic. Cute, quaint, nicely tucked away... More

Best dinner and breakfast I have had in a long time. Lamb was fantastic but the sides were just as fabulous! Trout was also killer. You get a bunch of food so beware when you order. Breakfast at the inn was amazing as well. The lightest scrambled eggs and waffles I have had in along time. This is a true... More

We like to escape the Thanksgiving craziness and come to Glen-Ella Springs. We stay for a long weekend and enjoy dinner in their restaurant each night. We especially love the rack of lamb and trout. They also make yummy homemade ice cream as a dessert option. Lovely place, wonderful inn keepers, nice staff, and delicious food!
