Very nice little place, it is close to the local shops (which are independent, quirky, up-market) and transport, welcoming staff, very comfortable room, great, fresh and appetizing breakfast spread, very good coffee, the station with links to NY city is about 7 minutes' walk. I recommend this hotel.

Having previously lived in the area, I was surprised to find the DeBary when I needed a room in the Summit area. It is a warm and welcoming Inn, nicely decorated. I found the rooms pleasant and comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is provided and had a variety of choices that would please anyone. I liked being able to walk...

Location excellent - 2nd visit - would come more often, but upon arrival found a broken toilet valve that necessitated reaching into unsanitary toilet tank every time to manually fix so would flush again. Manager (Lou) said "will fix after you leave" - so stuck 3 days with this problem. Overall ambience is interesting & historic, but fraying many places...

First point, your reservation was for 2 days not three. Secondly the toilet flap was stuck on your toilet. We found this out when the guest in the room below you complained about hearing running water. The guest informed us that she knocked on your door but you refused to acknowledge. The following morning the innkeeper was informed and jiggled...

We stayed here on our mid-week mini trip to NYC. I found the rooms comfortable and the breakfast satisfying for a continental breakfast. The Inn is located walking distance to the Summit train station and the town has several restaurants. I stayed with my teenage children and they were not disappointed by the "bed and breakfast" stay which could have...

My wife and I spent 6 days at The DeBary Inn. This is a beautiful Victorian home that offers 17 rooms. It felt like being literally at home.

One of the great aspects of the DeBary is the location. Just a short walk to the train station and many of the nice, friendly restaurants in town. But it's also great to spend time in a an old house with all of the associated charm and interesting history. Just know that it is an old house, and while very...
