Welcome to the official website for The Surf Hotel 

The Cyr family welcomes you back back for our 58th season.


Welcome to the Surf, a charming Victorian hotel noted for its old-fashioned warmth, 
friendly hospitality, and relaxed atmosphere. Built in 1876 and operated in the family tradition, the Surf will beckon you back to a time nearly forgotten but so dearly cherished. In this spirit, every consideration is given to your comfort and convenience, with new guests made to feel as welcome as the many friends who return year after year.

Located directly on the beach in the center of town, the Surf Hotel is within easy walking distance of the Old Harbor and ferry service. Here you can browse the quaint shops, tour the art galleries, enjoy fine dining at our restaurant, or simply relax on our porch and watch the world go by. Only steps from our door, Crescent Beach stretchers for nearly 3 miles, offering safe, smooth, and sandy beaches.

All our rooms are airy, comfortable, and most are enhanced with outstanding ocean views. Although designed and built before the era of private baths, all rooms have wash basins and are conveniently located near an abundance of bath facilities.

Our antique-filled lobby, with its authentic tin ceilings and Tiffany lamps, continuing the Surf's charming social theme. A giant chess set, library selection. and HDTV are available for our guests' enjoyment. Our restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our inside dining room or on the outside deck, while our bar serves cocktails and beverages to be enjoyed on those hot summer days.

The Surf Hotel is open from May to October. Private parking and bicycle racks are available. We look forward to welcoming you to a memorable step back in time!
