Another great stay at Surfside. We stayed in #15 and were very happy. The place was clean when we arrived. The townhome has everything you will need for your stay. Enjoyed the fireplace in the morning and the view all the time. The three level townhome fits our family of 6 adults, one baby and the dog very nicely. We...

This was the perfect spot for our daughter's wedding, where she was married on the shore of Lake Superior in the snow. The staff at Surfside is the best at fast and friendly service, and was accommodating on every aspect of our stay. There is plenty to do and the resort provides cross country skis, snowshoes and ice skates, all...

This is a newer property, and the condition of our room was excellent.The giant jetted tub was the biggest tub we have ever been in, and it was absolute bliss to hang out in the tub drinking wine with the...

Even nicer than Bluefin Bay proper. Living room, dining room, and kitchen all comfortable. Modern appliances and gas fireplaces. Creative architecture makes room for three bedrooms all with balconies overlooking the lake. Responsive and helpful staff. Variety of activities if so inclined. Easy access to Gitche-Gami State Trail for biking and walking just across Hwy 61. Only two critique items:...

We visit Blue Fin Bay every year in the winter time, but this time decided to also stay during the summer. This was our first time staying at Surfside. It was beautiful. Cozy, quiet. It's the perfect place to stay on the North Shore.

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...

VERY NICE ROOM 18B master suite We were very happy with the décor & almost every thing about the room, except -- the shower door leaked horribly, it appeared the sill was installed backwards, the water ran down the door & under the 1/2 inch space & all over the bathroom, the lip on the sill appeared to direct the...

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...

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...
