Summerfields Estate & Country House was originally built as a Bed & Breakfast in 1998 by its first owners Maxine and Leo Janssen. There are some places where you can just feel the love as soon as you enter the gates. Located on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Summerfields Estate & Country House in Bittern is one such place.
The style and elegance of the house are typical of the Cape Cod style architecture reminiscent of the East Coast of America. Set on beautiful grounds surrounded by a grove of 2,000 olive trees and an ornamental lake, Summerfields is encircled by beautiful semi-formal gardens and terrace, and occupied by a family of resident geese.
With many honeymoon couples falling in love with Summerfields during their stay and wishing they had the opportunity to celebrate their wedding on the beautiful grounds, eventually in 2002, Summerfields was transformed into the wedding reception venue it is today.
Formal Wedding Receptions
Indulge your guests with pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the Great Room or the Terrace whilst taking in the beauty of the surroundings at Summerfields. Dinner is then served in the Summerfield Room where the fine wine and restaurant quality food will surpass all expectations.
A balmy summer’s evening by the lake or a cool winter’s night beside a roaring fire… sipping champagne and feasting on house made canapés.
High Tea Receptions
For a light touch of class, enjoy tea and coffee and an assortment of sweet and savoury delights whilst enjoying the view and the company.
Summerfields creates the ultimate setting for your ceremony, whether it be overlooking the lake under the rose arbour, beneath our “big tree” or indoors in the Great Room.
