Introduction To Summit Retreat:

Summit Retreat is reminiscent of boutique lodging found all over the world. It is situated at the summit of a 2300 foot mountain, which allows its unmatched spectacular panoramic views of Lake Shasta, Mt. Lassen, Mt. Shasta and a 35 mile view to the south.

Summit Retreat was built with retreats in mind, but serves as a fantastic family vacation spot. The retreat was completely remodeled in 2012, using only high quality materials and design. The retreat itself boasts 6000 square feet, and is situated on 150 acres of private mountain top land.

Summit Retreat is managed by AIM Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. AIM has two main works that it supports, Heroes of the Nation Orphanage- Kenya’s largest orphanage, and Summit Think Tank & Retreat- which gathers leaders to solve mankind’s problems. You can feel great knowing that all donations go to support non-profit work!

Great Room:

Summit Retreat’s Great Room, truly lives up to its name. As one walks past the custom mosaic on the entry floor, one is drawn into the great room’s astounding view of Lake Shasta. The soaring ceilings and wall of windows almost make one feel like one of the bald eagles outside, perched on the mountainside, overlooking their vast domain. The great room is truly fabulous, accented by the custom granite fireplace with inset amber lighting. The expansive wood floor echos the moments of merity through its rich dark timbers. And the vaulted ceiling is crowned with a 7 foot fan. Truly, a room that can be called “great”.

Pub Area:
