I spent 10 days at Summerwood in July, 2012 during the time I visited the nearby University. The guest house had just been purchased by new owners who are really emphasizing the guesthouse experience. The room was very comfortable - spacious and spotless. The staff - from managers-on-duty to kitchen help - was extremely friendly and anxious to help. I got to interact with the owner and some of his family, and several of the managers, and their suggestions and guidance on restaurants and gifts for family were spot on. A very large variety of choices for breakfast - hot and made to order, a number of fruits and juices, a selection of pastries or cereals - and a very personalized service. I had beautiful, fall-like weather for most of my visit, but on one day when it was rainy and my fatigue on return to Summerwood obvious to the manager, she brought some tea to me in my room - very kind and thoughtful. As others mentioned, the location to the downtown area and the University is very convenient - close enough to walk if you want to get some exercise -but Summerwood itself is very quiet, away from their noise and bustle. I would highly recommend Summerwood because I did feel like I was treated like I was a guest of a family friend.
