Awesome spot for an Awesome wedding and experience!
We had our daughter's wedding at Summit Manor in February. Who knew that a winter wedding could be so wonderful and absolutely perfect in the "snowiest month" in MN history! Seriously, David and his crew made the entire event a dream wedding for our daughter and new son-in-law. He met our every need and concern with the utmost care, concern, and professionalism. David was so easy to work with and truly everything he said happened just as he described. If we would of done anything different, it would have been to trust David more than we already did. He and his staff we hidden in the background making it all work flawlessly (I had 2 drink spills and I don't think anyone even knew because the staff was so attentive!) We had about 75 guests and there was room for plenty more in this stately mansion. We enhanced the already magnificent structure with a few candles and some greens with pine cones. It was not even necessary but certainly was a reasonable option instead of spending lots of money on decor. The Speakeasy in the basement was everyone's favorite place to spend some of their time visiting and catching up with one another. I cannot recommend this venue high enough for satisfaction, value, food, service, DJ and the wedding experience in and of itself. We had a couple of unique requests
(you'll have to ask him!) and he was able to accommodate them. If you want an elegant, yet can be simple, perfectly orchestrated event, then Summit Manor is your choice! This was as close to perfect as it gets!Sent on 04/26/2019

Perfect Christmas wedding
It’s our first anniversary and to celebrate we went to dinner and walked past Summit Manor. Our Christmas wedding in the mansion was so beautiful all decorated and just felt so perfect. Everything was great including the food, dj, bartenders. It all felt more like an elegant party and our guests kept complimenting us all night on how great of a place it was. The owners are great and the rest of the staff really knew what to do when. We had about 100 guests and did the ceremony there as well on the stairs.Sent on 12/30/2018
