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.

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

This is a beautiful place to stay. We stayed in a villa for our honeymoon and it over looked Lake Superior. Walking out on the rocks to see the lake was absolutely breathtaking. Staff was helpful with questions. We enjoyed renting board games and bikes. I would recommend surfside to anyone.

Just returned from another stay at Surfside on Lake Superior. We try to go either here or Bluefin at least twice a year. Although we have had some minor issues at Bluefin with the noisy hot tubs in the rooms above us, we have never had a problem at Surfside in a 2-bedroom unit because the hot tub rooms are... More

My Husband and I stayed at Surfside for 4 days/3 nights to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary! We stayed in a Master Suite. I was blown away by the beauty of the area (this was my first time on North Shore). When we arrived at the resort, we checked in and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. They offered...

This is one of the best places to stay if you are planning a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation be it for couples or family or with friends!
