Summit Inn Resort (Summit Hotel)

-A A +A
Summit Hotel
1906–1908, J. Edward Keirn. 101 Skyline Dr., south of U.S. 40

This hotel, designed with Spanish Mission exterior details, became a favorite of automobile travelers for its dramatic views and healthful mountain air. Wide porches, some now fenestrated for dining spaces, take advantage of these splendid views. The gabled entrance is flanked by square, pyramidal-roofed towers with round-arched windows. The lobby, dominated by a grand cypress staircase, contains Craftsman woodwork, stained glass windows, and a massive stone fireplace. The 800-acre grounds include the original carriage house, barn, and staff dormitory.
