Being greeted at the door at a late hour, having arrived off a late plane from Boston, couldn't have been more comforting. Arriving for business, I wouldn't care as much, but as an emotion journey was about to begin, it was comforting to know that a caring person was welcoming me. Every morning I was greeted by a warm "Good...

My boyfriend and I had a great time spending the weekend here. We were served with wine and a cheese plate upon arrival and given coffee in bed the next morning. The sunset room had a beautiful view over the lake and Elaine was so kind to us.

We really felt at home at the Summit Inn. Elaine was a wonderful hostess, and provided the best breakfast and snacks. She went out of her way to provide directions on the fun things to do in the area.

I was working in the area and found this gem. Elaine makes one feel welcome and appreciated and goes above and beyond to be sure you have everything you need, from coffee delivered to your door in the morning to a surprize midnight snack.

Looking for our Swedish heritage we decided on stopping in the Center City/Lindström area of Minnesota and there we found the wonderful B&B Summit Inn. Just a little place with 3 rooms but with a genuine warm atmosphere that makes it well worth the visit. The rooms are all very well furnished in that old world sort of way, very...

The three of us, friends since college, celebrated our birthdays this year with a getaway weekend at Summit Inn. Elaine went out of her way to arrange massages for us. We enjoyed all aspects of Summit Inn: wonderful breakfasts, coffee at the door in the morning, relaxing in the gazebo and chatting with Elaine. She also suggested a few places...

We were visiting friends in the area, so we did not spend a lot of time at the Summit Inn, next time we will. This is a very well run operation. I have stayed at many, and have operated two inns, so I can say that with some authority. The room we stayed in was very nice, as it was...

My husband surprised me with this B&B as part of a day of hiking in Taylors Falls. This place is so cute and reminds me of an English country home. The gardens are gorgeous and beautifully kept and she has a lovely little gazebo for reading and watching the sun set over the lake. We stayed in the beautiful Sunset...

My fiance and I needed to get away for the weekend, and the pictures sold us on this B&B. The pictures didn't even do justice! If you arrive at night time, a beautiful lit arch greets you, as well as Elaine, the innkeeper. Elaine is so wonderful in so many ways, I can't even begin to explain how kind, warm,...

Hello, Thank you for your fantastic review. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourself! It is good to hear your feelings about the bathroom in the study. If an opportunity to put a tub in that bathroom presents itself, I will definitely consider it. Please check in occasionally and let Amy and I know how you're doing!...

Loved the Aerie Suite. Very welcoming and friendly host/innkeeper. Wife loved the super soft bath robes. Amazing breakfasts too, brought right to our room the 1st morning and next morning we enjoyed it down in the very nice dining room. Highly recommend and look forward to going back.
