We have been three straight years with a large family. So many things to do that the resort provides for you. Service is impeccable and the accommodations are very functional,relaxing, and top notch. What we like most is there are things to do for everyone from the small kids to older adults. You will not be disappointed!

Although this was our first stay at Surfside, we have been staying at the sister resort, Bluefin, for years so we had a pretty good idea of what to expect. This exceeded even those high expectations. Check-in: The check-in people were very pleasant and friendly. We were told to check-in at Bluefin Bay, about a mile North of Surfside. I... More

A girlfriend and I stayed here for a spa getaway weekend. I found a package on the website, called to book, and called the following day to book spa services. There was confusion surrounding a gift card to the Surfside on-site restaurant, which did end-up being closed this month, but the resort simply deducted the value from our hotel. When... More

My husband and I stayed at Surfside for 3 nights for our anniversary in February. We rented suite 5B. It is located on the north end of the resort. Although they said every room had a water view, 5B's water view was somewhat obstructed because the suite was on ground level with a slight berm in the landscaping overlooking the... More

We spent four nights in room 15A/B and had a great time. This is a pet friendly room. It was clean and comfortable. We have found our place to stay whenever we are in the area. Nothing like sitting by the fireplace with a good book while the winds howl outside. AND the winds were howling. We went from the... More

Another great stay at Surfside 14. Our son's dog wasn't with us this time but we are glad that he is welcomed there in that unit. Stayed there for three nights during the peak Fall colors. Everything was once again fantastic. We are a return customer and will be for years to come. Quiet, peaceful, and wonderful views.

First time at Surfside although we have been coming to the North Shore for our anniversary for many years. The condos are spacious, clean and comfortable. Checking in was quick and easy all done by a pleasant person. We stayed 6 nights in a 2 bedroom condo in May and wished that we could have stayed longer. we hope to... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights out of a 4 night stay. We left early because one of us developed a hip problem and could no longer take the hikes for which we had come to the area to take. The Surfside has excellent rooms, clean and nicely appointed. Their spa and local restaurant which is open for... More

I don't even know where to begin with this review. My boyfriend and I decided to hit up the north shore for a little getaway and usually we stay in Grand Marais, but this time we decided to look at the places we've passed along the way to GM. We went with Surfside at Superior and I can't tell you... More

We stayed in the Master Suite for a couple days - very nice. Walk out right to the lake shore. There is a long stairway you have to go down to get in to the unit. Also, when the patio doors on the unit above are open it does get a bit noisy on the bottom floor. In any case,... More
