New Floor System at the Indoor Pool

pool_deck_renovations
This spring kicked off with a bang at the Summit Resort with demolition of a major section of decking surrounding the large, indoor pool. In an effort to run new utilities for ambient heat and resurface the lower tier with fresh Pebble Tec flooring, our staff made quick work of the tear down process. Outside contractors have been brought in to professionally finish the balance of the project.

Scheduled to be fully delivered by Thursday, April 13th, this major upgrade will ensure a new level of creature comfort for guests enjoying our star amenity. While the improvements might not visually stand out when finished, this is just one of the many details the resort tackles to ensure we deliver the best hospitality experience possible.

Upgraded Bathrooms in our Deluxe Suites

Freshly renovated master bathroom
This summer season opens with major enhancements to the master bathrooms in our 2 Bedroom Deluxe Suites. When these units were originally constructed, the master bathroom included a large Jacuzzi tub with no shower facilities. Guests were there to enjoy a long awaited vacation and offering a large format Jacuzzi off the main bedroom was a fair tradeoff. After all, there was still a shower available in the guest bathroom.

Times have changed and so haven’t the needs of our vacationers. In an effort to offer more flexibility and greater guest convenience, the resort embarked on a significant renovation project to completely retrofit the master bathroom facilities in the Deluxe Suites. The project involved completely gutting the bathrooms and removing the original large Jacuzzis. New whirlpool tubs along with full shower fixtures were installed in their place. Along with the new bathroom amenities, fresh vanity cabinets with granite countertops were added to upgrade the furnishings. New laminate, plank flooring and a fresh coat of contemporary paint colors finished off the conversion.

With the renovation project fully complete, guests staying in our Deluxe Suites will enjoy these upgraded and inviting master bathrooms without needing to share a shower with their family or friends. This renovation is just one small example of the Summit Resort continuously improving to meet the needs of modern vacationers.

The Secret Grotto

With an expansive indoor amenities center, The Summit Resort stands apart from other hospitality options in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. Known for the large, indoor pool, new guests anticipate a fun time basking in the warm water or sliding down the slide. Returning visitors, who are familiar with the pool area, are oftentimes more excited about a secret, hidden feature.

Tucked away in the rocks, beyond the waterfall, lies a hidden oasis. Passing through the falls from the main pool, guests find themselves enclosed in a secret grotto. With high rocky walls and another mood setting waterfall perched over a submerged bench, the grotto offers a special spot to unwind after a long day, think deep thoughts or just enjoy a conversation with your fellow guests. This relaxing feature adds a distinct character to the indoor pool facility, setting it apart from your standard hotel pool area.

One of many reasons The Summit defines itself as a step above your average accommodations near Lake Winnipesaukee, the grotto is something for returning guests to reacquaint themselves with and new guests to discover.

A New Road to the Summit


Mentor Ave, the primary road leading to the Summit Resort, has been completely resurfaced and repaved. In November, Bryant Paving removed the 30 year old original surface and brought in bulldozers to further refine the grades. Along with a fresh layer of asphalt, new curbs were added along the edge of the drive.

The repaving project marks a continued commitment to elevating the standards at our already exceptional facility. Along with the major room renovations currently underway, these overall facility improvements will help the Summit Resort continue to provide one of the best hospitality offerings in the Lakes Region.

Granite countertops will be installed throughout the units. Hardwood-style floors will be added to class up the kitchen areas along with new cabinets and appliances. New carpeting, fresh paint, new valences, crown molding and brand new furniture round out a long list of improvements intended on raising the bar on the guest experience.
