I stay at The DeBary Inn on a pretty regular basis. I travel for business to the Summit and NYC area frequently and the Inn is my home away from home. Kate is so warm and welcoming. I feel at home there. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I love the comfortable front porch and neighborhood feel. The quaint downtown... More

We had a family gathering in Jersey City but I decided to stay in a place a bit quieter. Boy did we make the right choice. A gorgeous late 19th century inn. The room was a bit small, but comfortable, and the sink located away from the bathroom was a bit awkward but we managed well. The wifi was solid.... More

Summit a cool town, you're right it is. We are fortunate to be located in a beautiful town, with tree lined streets, and a lovely downtown. We take it for granted sometimes, and it's nice to be reminded by a traveler that it is a "cool town." Thanks for the reminder, you made my day. More

Lovely town and pretty inn with good service. Huge beds too and fab breakfast. There is a sitting room to relax in too and beautiful veranda for breakfast outside. We had teenagers in a separate room but you could have roll away bed in your room.

We stayed here one night on our way to visit the grandkids. As we were traveling by train, we found th location ideal (few minutes walk from station). The Inn was lovely and the room well appointed with comfortable bed. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. The town is charming and we had no problem finding... More

I thank Frederick Debary everyday for building this magnificent structure in beautiful downtown Summit, and within a few short blocks of NJ Transit trains. To be able to walk out your door and see wonderful restaurants and shops is terrific , and to be less than 40 minutes from mid town Manhattan makes it an even more unique experience. We... More

We've stayed at the Debary Inn dozens of times and enjoy it every time. Business brings us to New Jersey, and it's wonderful having a room at a charming inn in pleasant and walkable Summit. We love sitting on the porch, hanging out in the spacious public areas, and enjoying the breakfast every morning. Parking, wifi, and breakfast is free.... More

Very very lovely Inn with excellent welcoming staff. It feels like staying with family. The complimentary breakfast had many selections to choose from including quiche, fruit, oatmeal, cereals, pastries as well as hot fresh coffee and juice.

After seeing all of the surrounding big-named hotels were completely overpriced, I found myself at the DeBary Inn. Originally, I was booked for a smaller room but upon arrival, found that they had upgraded me to a spacious, comfortable room on the third floor (room 15). The next morning, I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast, taking it out to their beautiful... More

This three level B&B was charming and spacious. I arrived unexpectedly early on a red-eye flight and they were able to have a room prepared for me hours before normal check in despite having been completely booked the night before. During my stay, I did have the opportunity to peek into other rooms: every room was decorated in its own... More

Great home- stunning, yet comfortable. It was a joy to stay in this beautiful home . The owners were very accommodating even in the midst of a full home! I highly recommend this home to anyone staying in the Summit area. It was also great walking distance to the downtown area and train station.
