    Incredible Experience. Couldn't Asked For Anything Better!

    I can't say enough good things about our experience with Summit Manor and David. His professionalism, excellence, kindness, and generosity was what made our wedding planning and day-of so beautiful, stress-free, and fun. The venue itself is stunning and we didn't worry at all about any day-of details. David and his staff handled everything. He told us before that he wanted us to feel like guests at our own wedding and we sure did. I can't recommend this place enough!!

    Fantastic Wedding Venue

    David is very friendly and helpful. He kept my stress level down while things looked uncertain in this pandemic. We were able to still have everything we wanted for our special day. The food was so amazing, our guests were just going up for seconds and more. David’s recommendation for dessert was also a hit for us and our guests. I couldn’t see having our wedding anywhere else besides Summit Manor.

    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!
