I am currently still staying at the b&b and just wanted to send out a good review as I'm munching on Elaine's delicious afternoon snack. This woman knows how to cook! Breakfasts are made fresh daily and served over fine china and candle light with an amazing dessert at the end of every meal:) My room is clean and cozy... More

Summit Inn was just what we needed, T.L.C. during busy days. Elaine's breakfasts set us up for the long day ahead, and her and Sandy's kindness and understanding made us feel so comfortable. Beautiful gardens, too!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while we attended family week at Hazelden . We could not have chosen a better place. The house and gardens were open to us and always could watch the sun set on the lake. The breakfast was outstanding. Beautifully prepared and presented.

Highly recommended. All that could be hoped for in a bed-and-breakfast, and more! We blossomed under Elaine's thoughtful, generous hospitality and cheerful presence. The house is classically beautiful; pleasingly, comfortably furnished; and soothing, classical music infuses the atmosphere. A great view of the sunset over the lake from the gazebo confirms Summit Inn's place on the not-to-be-missed Bed and Breakfast... More

After a long, stressful winter time drive, my arrival to the Summit Inn was marked with the warmth of a crackling fireplace, peaceful Classical music and a delightful conversation with Elaine. Not wanting to deal with the snow and make one more trip out for dinner, the cheese plate Elaine offered was perfect to allow me to stay fireside and... More

I was in town supporting a family member at Hazeldon. This was the perfect relaxing retreat after a long emotional day. The owner was on a well deserved vacation the days I was there but the wonderful ladies that both checked me in and made my delicious multi coursed breakfast were amazing!!!! I would encourage anyone in town for family... More

I had not seen my beloved for weeks, separated by family matters for her to tend out there and office matters for me back here. Finally, we could be in each other's arms again. Our eclectic life style has put housemates in our home, because we're gone a lot, with the attendant lack of privacy. So, I decided to surprise... More

Stayed one night at the Summit Inn and truly enjoyed my stay. From the minute I arrived, Elaine made me feel at home. Her historic home and gardens are a perfect setting for a relaxing stay. The 3 course breakfast was fabulous!

Stayed with Elaine at the Summit Inn Bed & Breakfast on the evening of June 9, initially on the strength of the reviews here at tripadvisor.com, and also because it was an easy stop on my way from Minneapolis to Lake Vermillion, Tower, Minnesota. Elaine's lovely B&B is an easy little drive out of Minneapolis and in a lovely setting... More
