We stayed at the Summit Lodge for a golf weekend. The location was excellent, since it was central to the various courses on the Shanty Creek property. Since the lodge building is obviously not new, I expected the rooms to be a bit dated. But I was pleasantly surprised to find they were renovated and very comfortable. The hotel photos are very accurate. We had a large room with two queen beds. They were extremely comfortable mattresses and nice linens. Accommodations included a flat screen HD television, coffee pot, and wireless Internet access. Our room had a wide balcony overlooking beautiful views of Lake Bellaire. There was a table and chairs so that you could sit outside.
The lodge also offers a lovely restaurant with huge windows looking down on the lake. Unfortunately, we found the food to be very mediocre for what we paid. We ate breakfast two mornings and ordered off the menu. A standard egg, bacon, potato and toast plate ran about $12. Juice and coffee were extra. I ordered grapefruit juice and got some kind of Hi-C drink. I have better breakfast at the local diner for less than half the price. On Sunday, we paid $18 for the brunch. A chef cooked omelets to order, and they were good. There was also an assortment of pastries, fruit, sausage, and potatoes. On Saturday night we ate dinner in the restaurant. Again, it did not begin to meet expectations for the price point. My pasta dish was under seasoned, bordering on bland. The wine selection is just so-so.
In summary -- the hotel rooms live up to promotions for the recent renovation. I'm not sure what they are charging just for the room. Our golf package was $350, and included three rounds of golf, two nights lodging, and one dinner. The restaurant looks nice and includes a very nice small bar. But the food was disappointing across the board.
