This Little Known Resort Near Pittsburgh Is The Perfect Place To Get Away From It All
Let time melt away as you relax during the perfect autumn getaway – complete with swimming, golf, and spectacular sunsets – at this

Dating back to 1907, the Historic Summit Inn takes visitors on a trip back in time with its vast, lush grounds, charming rooms, and sweeping staircase.
Located about an hour and a half from downtown Pittsburgh in Farmington, the Historic Summit Inn has hosted such prominent guests as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone during its storied history.
Check in at the quaint front desk before climbing the sweeping staircase to your room. The Historic Summit Inn boasts 94 cozy guests rooms, some of which provide stunning bird's eye views of Uniontown.
Enjoy a drink. Engage in conversation or simply relax in front of a roaring fire in the resort's original fireplace that, like the hotel itself, dates back to 1907.

On the spacious outdoor Veranda. Order such scrumptious entrees as the Summit Signature Crab Cake.
Sit back and watch the sun set from a cozy rocking chair on the grand porch before retreating to your room for the evening. But, make your reservations soon because the resort's season ends in November.
