I had the chance to get a suite at this B&B in Port Hope and appreciate the kindness and warm hospitality of its owner, Deborah. You do feel at home with the trust and friendly attitude of the reception. My suite on the second floor was overlooking the main street and with the sound of the whistling trains in the... More

The Summer Hill B & B was our kind of unique place. There was something authentic and delightfully British about every nook and cranny. Our room was very comfortable and the garden as well as the common rooms were accessible, interesting and enjoyable. The hostess (Deborah) was extremely friendly and accommodating; we enjoyed her very much. Our stay included a... More

Deb was a wonderful hostess! We went down to Port Hope for a wedding and couldn't be more happier to have stayed at Summerhill! The accomodations were comfortable and cozy! The food was amazingly good...especially the scones! You can tell that Deb pours her heart and soul into this B&B. In the room you can sign a guest book, which... More

My girlfriend and me stayed at Summerhill for our one year anniversary. Right when we got there Deborah invited us to sit for afternoon tea and scones. It was amazing, many teas to choose from and fresh soft scones. After we took our time wandering town while our room was being prepped. On our return we mentioned we were going... More

I have made reservations on two occasions for High Tea at Summerhill, and still consider it well worth the drive (from Ajax). My first visit I brought my mum for Mother's Day, not knowing what to expect. The atmosphere was absolutely charming and the staff were quick and friendly to seat us and bring our selection of tea. The quality... More

My wife and I stayed at Summerhill for two days and we would highly recommend it. Charming and welcoming, Deborah tends to your every need. And Sinatra in the Tea Room! All in all, a terrific stay. Looking forward to sleeping over again.

A beautiful evening spent with local women over the most delicious scones with real cream and jam. Deborah embraced each of us like family. Her spirit is genuine and her hospitality second to none. Homemade food, made with home grown, local ingredients. Do yourself a favour and stop in to say Hello. I promise you will not be disappointed. So... More

Recently dined here. The Innkeeper (Deb) was very friendly and knowledgeable about the locale. The atmosphere was homey and sparked the imagination, what with the numerous photos, vintage books and antique furniture arranged about the place for guests to enjoy. Moreover, the luncheon fare was delicious and reasonably priced for fresh-made kitchen fare. Methinks, "We aim to please," is surely... More

I first went to the tea room when it was run by previous owners. (The high tea was delicious then too!) I was interested in seeing if the new was a good as the previous and went for lunch on my own.

From the moment we walked into this glorious Victorian manor house, we were treated like family. Deborah greeted us with fresh tea and coffee and newly "born" scones upon our arrival. Simply delicious and a lovely touch. Deb is an amazing cook and the breakfast were unbelievable! She was very attentive and ensured that our every desire was filled. We... More
