We had a girls' weekend at the Summit Inn. Our room was clean, the staff were polite and we had an enjoyable visit. The Inn is historic and much of the interior reflected the old-class charm. There are two pools - indoor and out. We took advantage of the outdoor pool. It was beautiful. Visited the tree house on our own and just enjoyed exploring the inn and grounds.

Room Tip: We were only in the room to sleep. It was comfortable and clean. Lots of stairs, so be prepared.

We did not stay at the Summit Inn but dined in at the Versnda restaurant located on the porch, and it had magnificent views. We did not have reservations and at this time of year, they served on the porch rather than inside, weather permitting.

The weather was perfect, we talked, and then ordered. Our drinks were brought to the table, but we had no napkins. There was a lot of condensation on the glasses, and we needed napkins. Our food came and we asked our server for napkins and utensils. That should never happen. My Reuben was good but we had no ketchup for our fries.

We finished our drinks yet the server did not refill the water glasses until we asked her. She did not have many tables, but she was spending time on her phone as she leaned behind the outdoor bar area.

The setting at the hotel was lovely. Magnificent valley views, a new pool, and a very interesting piece of art in the front lawn. What looked like solar panels turned out to be artful letters about the history of the area during George Washington's time. There was no explanation of this work, but it was well worth the view steps from the front steps.

The interior of the hotel was lovely and charming. We saw the owner wiping the banister. It was nice that they were taking pride in their property. There was a treehouse that was featured on a television show. Tours were free and you only needed to schedule one. Mobile massages were available as were other activities listed on a table in the lobby area.

The historic hotel provided many opportunities for any time spent on the grounds.

This was my third stay at the Summit Inn. It has turned into a favorite option for traveling with my mother. This year I brought two 20-something kids and a niece. We planned side-trips of whitewater rafting on the Youghiogheny, touring a winery and seeing Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob.

There is so much to do in the area - but what keeps me and my family coming back is the charming nostalgic feel of the Summit Inn. We make a plan to visit the Summit Inn and plan our excursion around that. I've visited in the summer and fall - and find it to be a treasure. The Summit Inn is the real deal; a wonderful old hotel that takes me back to a simpler time.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating - and I have to send a huge thank you to their general manager and other staff members for making our stay even better by taking the time to befriend my mother when our rafting trip went longer than we had planned. We were all treated like family.

The Inn itself is just fun - with a unique personality that makes me smile. If you are expecting perfection... then perhaps you want to visit a Disney replica - or Vegas. Keep in mind that the Inn is over 100 years old - and there a few wrinkles here and there. That said - the rooms are updated, nicely decorated and clean.

We REALLY enjoy dining at the Inn. The breakfasts are wonderful - and the dinner menu is varied and delicious. You also can't beat the sunset views on the veranda.
Again - how nice is it to come back from a busy day of seeing the sights, take a dip in the pool or hot-tub and then get dressed and stroll down the hall to dinner. That adds up to a wonderful vacation. I can't wait to go back again.~

Room Tip: Keep in mind that there are no elevators. Request a first floor room if necessary.

Our $200/night room was smelled stuffy and musty, even with the air running, and there was black mold growing on the old wallpaper above the air conditioner. The bathroom had no fan, so even a short shower filled the room with humidity which refused to dissipate. There was no iron in the room, and so we had to go down to the front desk to ask for one. Paint was peeling above the window sill. We ordered room service for breakfast one morning, and after returning in the late afternoon, the breakfast tray was still sitting in our room; apparently, housekeeping's duties do not include removing food trays, nor calling the dining room staff to come and get it.

We nicknamed our bartender "Surly," as she said not a word to us other than to ask what we wanted; she set our drinks in front of us and walked away. It appeared to us that she was angry at the other bartender. Her mood seemed to have improved slightly the next evening, but she does not engage patrons in any way--not a great personality trait for a bartender.

There was no free Wi-Fi network available, although it is supposedly offered. In our room, just at the top of the steps, we had no signal whatsoever. We used my iPhone as a personal hotspot instead..

I witnessed an older patron (a sweet lady) telling one of the women at the front desk that it was paradise there. The employee replied, "I don't think so." The poor old lady didn't know how to reply to that and so she simply retreated.

The meals were the only bright spot. They were perfectly prepared and presented, and our servers for both dinners were positive, intelligent, friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, they are also understaffed and overworked (in their opinion and ours).

For the price that the Summit in charges for rooms nowadays, what we received for our money was disappointing. Not sure if we'll return or not.

Room Tip: Don't expect much, and expect to overpay for what you do get.

Looking for a course along highway 40 and found Summit Hill golf course. Super friendly staff, very inexpensive if not staying at hotel ($10), free if staying at hotel. Not fancy, but perfect for a 9 holes. Terrain is hilly which makes it challenging. Spoke to owners and sounds like they are making a lot of improvements. Can't wait to play it again!
