The Inn is located in a beautiful area within a few minutes to Kentuk Knob, Fallingwater, beautiful Ohiopyle State Forest, and other historic sites. We felt welcome the moment we entered the Inn...we were hot and sweaty from hiking and it was Mother's Day with a full house for luncheon and everyone dressed to the hilt...but we were not looked...

When staying at a historic place like the Summit Inn one needs to balance the old-fashioned charm against the lack of modern amenities. The first impression is of the beautiful setting overlooking the mountains, a wonderful enormous porch, and a large, impressive antique lobby with massive furniture and staircases. There is a nice restaurant and indoor pool; the outdoor pool... More

After visiting wonderful Fallingwater, I arrived at the inn in a cold, pouring rain. I walked into the lobby with a roaring fire in the fireplace, attentive ladies at the registration desk, and the offer to help with my bags getting to my room. My room couldn't have been nicer - neat and clean, wonderful bathroom, it lacked nothing and... More

I stayed here in October on weekend of my son's wedding - and the reception was here, too. The setting is spectacular - the hotel overlooks the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania, and even on a cold, rainy weekend, the fall colors were very visible. My room was very comfortable, and I appreciated having old-style keys rather than swipe cards! Another... More

My husband and I just stayed here while we were in the area, and we had some really mixed feelings about the inn. The pros: fabulous views, nice staff, close to a lot of cool local attractions. The cons: room wasn't super clean (ie. old hair in the drawers), service was sometimes lackluster (ie. old dirty glass sitting on floor... More

a bit dated, but for the price, it was well worth the stay. The veranda/porch has great sunset view, even better than the brochure photo. We came in October, so were not able to use the new outdoor pool which will be available next summer (2015), but the indoor pool is better than most. food was very good and included... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights to visit Falling Waters which was fabulous. The staff at the front desk was somewhat uninspired and unenthusiastic. The girl at the bar while we know was inundated with orders, was not friendly. Sometime just acknowledging customers makes a difference but she did not and I felt we were imposing. The breakfast...

We very much enjoyed visiting this old legend in the Laurel Mountains. The hotel has been restored to an excellent condition, and the lobby and the surrounding grounds are just beautiful. The room we had was spacious enough and reasonably well-appointed, and quiet. We really did not have any complaints except for wifi not being available in the rooms (only... More

We stayed two nights at the Summit Inn on a weekend trip. The view from the several outside porches and verandas are gorgeous, but the weather was cold, windy and overcast, so we weren't able to sit out and enjoy. The art-deco lobby is amazing, though too dark and musty-smelling. The huge fireplace was blazing, and there was always someone... More
