“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Stayed here as a last minute Groupon deal and stayed for a couple of nights - out of season I might add.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which had a large living / dining / full kitchen, and off this room were 2 bedrooms - one en-suite with a jacuzzi bath. There was also a washer and dryer!

I couldn't complain about the location or quality for the price paid.

The leisure facilities are excellent - the kids loved the pools and the slides and the ping pong and the x-box.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helped with queries.

It kind of feels like a friendly little village / holiday home location.

I could imagine the price changes dramatically in the high season and I might well have a different view on the price and the quality and the overall rating. But based on time, price and other factors; I enjoyed it.

Only about 1/2 mile from Weirs Beach - which is walkable, although it would be done on the road with no lights, I would take care....

Rented a 2 bedroom suite with some friends and had a blast. It was quite, clean and staff was great! They had an indoor pool, gym, playground, and my favorite luandry right in our suite. They also had loaner movies, board games and cards. Staff did a great job of helping us through quick and easy check in/check out. I can not wait to go back again!!!

We were only there for one night. It was the best night, our family loves it there. We didn't want to leave. A lot more then we excepted on everything there. The rooms were very toasty warm. It felt like home in the unit. The housekeeping did an awesome job cleaning it was spotless very happy. The pool was so clean, nice and warm. Our kids had the best time. The service was great. The price is perfect for what you get. We will be planning another trip back love it.

Room Tip: They have more in unit then we thought they would have. It is all awesome

After reading some of the other review, we were a bit nervous coming to this resort. There is no need to be scared! the condo we had was very clean, and a bit outdated, but not terribly so. Some good points- discount ski tickets, timely snow removal, pool area and roman spa and sauna, well equipped kitchen (very clean), washer and dryer in your unit, close to food and activities, and my teenagers loved the whirlpool tub in the master bathroom. We did not have any problems with this condo at all.

could be better- the whirlpool tub could have had a shower, and my 16 year old did not sleep well on the pull out. The kids all said the mattress was uncomfortable. We had no other suggestions.
We went skiing at both Ragged and Gunstock, both were close enough to get to and from easily, and we had great conditions. Great week overall.

I just want to say that I thought this place was a nice family oriented resort. Pool and jacuzzi were nice and much needed after long days of snowboarding. Downfall was that we had to drive there but no big deal..Recreational room was fun with the kids; pool table was a little old but fun and ping pong was a big hit.
We had a two bedroom suite and it was perfect for 5 of us. Only thing that wasn't good about this room was the pull out sofa. If you like laying on springs them that's fine but my 8 yr old thought it was very uncomfortable. Jacuzzi tub was awesome except for the fact that the hot water runs out fast so take a shower instead if you want hot water. The toilet in the master bedroom didn't work well either but overall those are minor things and I would recommend this place to anyone. Nice ride to gunstock too, a decent ten minute ride.We definitely enjoyed it.

I felt compelled to write in response to the posts I just read regarding the wedding party. My family and I for the past 2 years have had our "family pajama party" at the Summit. My husband and I, our kids and all their children rent a couple rooms and enjoy the amenities and togetherness for the weekend. Last year is was a very relaxing experience. This year, however, there was a very obnoxious wedding party yelling outside our doors past 1am and heavy heavy foot traffic just about all night, like no one even considered there were other people staying there. ..I'm all for having fun at weddings...... but this was an "after party", and there are other guests that you should consider, as we paid just as much for our rooms as you did for yours!
