Very poor construction. Very poor housekeeping. Simply not clean. The front door would not lock. Very expensive. For the money, a very poor value. The housekeeping staff does not have attention to detail for a property of this price.

I sincerely apologize for the housekeeping issues you experienced during your visit. I have reached out to you separately and will do my best to make that right with you as soon as we are able to connect. The front door you refer to does lock whenever it is closed. I believe your comment refers to the fact that the... More

My husband and I arrived back home to Illinois a week ago from today and still, we are missing this gem in Minnesota! We stayed for 5 nights for our honeymoon/1 Year anniversary in our Surfside Master Suite 17B. It was the touch of luxury in the midst of tranquility we were looking for, complete with a double jacuzzi and... More

We decided to go up to the North Shore for my daughters birthday and needed a 2 bedroom. We booked through the website, and was the room fabulous!!! Views of stunning Lake Superior was outstanding. Large full kitchen with all the amenities, even some free coffee, but bring your own, there is a limited supply and no daily maid service.... More

We rented a 2 bedroom townhome with another couple for 2 nights. We were there Thursday and Friday night. The townhomes are recently built and are affiliated with Blue Fin Inn. We had to go up the road to the Blue Fin to register as the guest services was not open on site. The townhome is right on the shore... More

We decided to stay here to try someplace new (we've stayed many places on the north shore) and so took advantage of the spring three for two special. We were in unit 12A which is a two bedroom upper condo. Check-in was quick and easy. The condo has windows everywhere that face the lake -- very light and airy. Our... More

My new favorite place on the shore! Wonderful family weekend at Surfside. All the windows and natural light in the condo is beautiful. Very spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed. Our son loved the pool and camp fire. Can't wait to return.

Waters of Superior Spa deserves to be ranked #1 resort spa in the state (Star Tribune). The ambience is peaceful and refreshing and the service outstanding with attentive staff. It adds a rejuvenating touch to our stays at Surfside. Well deserved Congratulations to the staff!

We had a great time staying at Surfside so much so my wife is looking into purchasing. The accommodations exceeded expectations. Expecting my in laws to join us we decided to try Surfside for a bit more room versus our mainstay Bluefin Bay when visiting the north shore. Surfside offered 3 levels of living space all with fantastic views of... More

We love going up to the north shore and unwinding and relaxing and Surfside is the perfect destination. The warm and inviting fireplace, vaulted ceilings with great lake views. Relaxing in the jacuzzi tub listening to water hitting the rocks. Just a very relaxing place to spend some down time.
