“Comfort Galore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Had a lovely stay at the Summit B & B. It was clean, comfortable and Elaine the innkeeper was outstanding. Very kind, gracious and a wonderful cook. The breakfast each morning was very special as were the home baked cookies each evening. I enjoyed my evenings in the gazebo set amid her beautiful garden with a nice view of the lake.

This was the most peaceful and relaxing bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at. The home is very clean and the bed was so comfortable! I recommend Summit Inn Bed & Breakfast to anyone staying in the area. You will not be disappointed!

a great local B+B run by an innkeeper who cares. She even upgraded my room for free as it was a quiet time -- a great place to stay if you are visiting Hazelden just a few minutes away.

As previous reviews state....we can confirm tranquility, relaxing, friendly and simply peaceful. Home faces the lake, clean and is exceptionally cousy and warm! Elaine is a fantastic Innkeeper and host. Just what you would expect from a B&B. Breakfast was amazing and please note that those of you who have food allergies, glutten free, etc. let her know. Elaine is well prepared to ensure your needs are met. The area also boasts very nice antique shows if you are interested.

Room Tip: There are three rooms. The attic room is awesome. One with a bathroom. One w/out. The one with the b...

The experience at Summit Inn was truly an experience in tranquility. The views facing the lake were calming and sunsets almost equal to those at our cottage on Lake Erie in Pennsylvania. Our host Elaine Sommers presented us with gourmet breakfasts accompanied by soft music, candle light and fine china. A truly calming way to begin our day. Her home is well appointed, comfortable, and the linens on the bed were luxurious. Hers is a gracious and hospitable gentility not often found when traveling. Ann & Kevin

My wife and I spent one night at the Summit Inn and it was very special! Elaine is a fantastic Innkeeper and host. She made sure our stay was exceptional by providing everything a person would want in a B & B. The little touches and attention to detail were wonderful. I highly recommend staying here, you will not regret it. It is everything a B & B should be. And you will leave relaxed and with a new friend. Everything you could possibly wish for is here. And wonderful food on top of everything else!
Thank you Elaine

My wife and I stayed for a night the week between Christmas and New Year's. The house is beautiful and filled with period antiques including an organ. There is a fireplace in the large living room that faces the lake, we enjoyed sitting by the fire and reading books in the evening. It was very quiet as there were not other guests at this time. Elaine was very welcoming and friendly. Even if the B and B were filled, there seemed to be enough common spaces spread thoughout the house to allow for quiet and seclusion if that's what you are seeking. The third floor has its own sitting area, fireplace, and enormous bathroom, which is much different from the second floor bedrooms. If you enjoy having a place to spread out and sit within the privacy of your own room, the third floor suite is the way to go.

My only complaint was nothing about the inn, but about the lack of fine dining in the area. We stayed on a Tuesday in the winter, and most of the restaraunts in the calibre of Tangled Up in Blue and Grecco's are only open Thurs-Sunday.
