The closest inn accommodations to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, and ten minutes from the new Lady Luck Casino. Our newest addition 'Black Bear Bungalow' build by Tree House Master Pete Nelson featured on Animal Planet. Our country's past is traced and preserved by the charming ambiance of one of the last remaining grand porch hotels in the United States. Since 1907, this mountaintop Inn has hosted generation after generation of guests. They have enjoyed relaxing on the grand porch, while feeling the cool breeze of hot summer evenings or taking in the magnificent view of golden autumn afternoons. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Summit Inn has served guests such as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone. So, come and discover the beautiful Laurel Highlands and make the Summit Inn "Your home in the mountains."

Quiet getaway

The Summit Inn provided us with a very peaceful and quiet getaway. The view from the porch is positively gorgeous. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Our breakfasts and dinners were delicious and the portions were generous. Wish we could've stayed longer.

Great stay

Stayed here after our wedding last weekend. Summit Inn staff, especially Cathy and Pat, couldn't have been more gracious and welcoming. Wonderful stay. Great facility. Very comfortable bed. Wonderful view of the valley. Great outdoor seating for dinner and drinks. Great value. We considered Nemacolon and we're so glad we chose the Summit Inn instead. Nemacolon is needlessly expensive, fake facades and architecture, and virtually deserted. Summit Inn felt like a great place to come home to each night alive with people but not overcrowded. 15 minutes from Ohiopyle State Park (rafting, biking, hiking), Falling Water, etc. Great stay! Thank you Summit Inn!

Fabulous and friendly Inn

From the gorgeous five county view off the beautiful veranda, to the delicious breakfasts served in the dining room, the Summit Inn is a true find. The Inn is located close to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwaters,Kentuck Knob and spectacular Ohiopyle State Park. We enjoyed a wonderful meal on the expansive porch - the crab cakes were excellent! Friendly, accomodating staff adds to the perfection of your stay. Please say "hi" to Tootsie for us if you go...

Great Place

My wife and I stayed at The Summit in August 2008 and found it really charming. The service is friendly and the building itself was a treat, especially sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. Afew things to note, first we went to western PA to visit Falling Water. The Sumit is close to FW but not "the closest" so if that's important to you, look in Ohiopyle PA. Second, the view, building, lobby, restaurant and pool are wonderful. The rooms have comfortable beds but the furnishings are very 1980 and could use replacing. I'd recommend period reproductions to match the 1920's decor of the lobby. Finally, the walls are a bit thin between rooms so there is some noise if your neighbors aren't courteous. All in all a great place to stay and we recommend it. Enjoy.

Quick stop in the Mountains - worth it!

My family wanted to visit Fallingwater and couldn't find any place to stay on short notice (even with a pet). I read some poor reviews on line about Summit but decided it was worth a try for one night. Indeed it was! I recommend this location as the staff is very friendly, the facility is well maintained, food is wonderful and the view is breathtaking! If we could have stayed for another night, we would have...give it a try.

great place!
