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.

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.

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.
