About the Innkeepers of Our North Georgia Bed and Breakfast
Fulfilling a life-long dream, Ed and Luci Kivett along with their boys, Edward and Andrew, became Glen-Ella’s third inn-keeping family in 2008. Glen-Ella Springs Inn is a haven that guests often return to again and again – a tribute to the sincere dedication of providing both Inn and restaurant guests with the very best experience on each and every visit.
“Our Goal is to delight each guest and enrich their experience through a combination of an inspiring environment, outstanding food and exceptional service.“
Glen-Ella Springs Inn is a north Georgia bed and breakfast inn listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has a long-standing tradition of hospitality. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, Glen-Ella Springs has welcomed guests to its peaceful country location, providing a distinctive place for rest and renewal.
As one of only eleven inns in Georgia admitted to the Select Registry of Distinguished Inns, this nationally recognized assurance of quality gives our guests peace of mind in knowing they have selected a superior property for their leisure or business travel. Area outdoor attractions, from north Georgia wineries to nationally recognized hiking trails and Georgia waterfalls, make Glen-Ella Springs Inn a very special destination.
When the Inn was restored in 1986 by Bobby and Barrie Aycock, all of the original heart pine–paneled walls, floors, and ceilings were left intact wherever possible, including in the guest rooms. The lobby, the dining room, and two of the second-floor suites have one of several original stacked-stone fireplaces.
Although guest rooms do not have TVs, there are TVs in common areas with full satellite connections for our guests to use. Cellular service depends on your carrier, and the entire property is set up with complimentary WiFi access.
For the comfort of our guests, we have 4 rooms (2 ground-floor king rooms and 2 second-floor suites) which are family friendly. Please contact the Inn directly for lodging reservations if you are traveling with children.
