We stayed at the North Shore Inn for an enjoyable two-night getaway in Crestline. Nancy made us feel very welcome and personally escorted us to our room. She provided us with all the information we needed regarding the room and the surrounding area. Our room was spotless and comfortable with all the necessary amenities plus a microwave and a fridge.... More

The North Shore Inn is a great get-away. It's across the street from Lake Gregory and a grocery store, which makes the location very convenient. It's on a major road so there's a bit of road noise, but other than that it was wonderfully peaceful. I stayed in Room # 8 with a fireplace and a king-size bed that I... More

Great, comfortable, elegantly furnished and spotless room and bathroom. Nancy was so nice, helpful and accommodating. Would return again and again!! Room had microwave and mini fridge, and Namcy was but a buzzer away and responded very quickly to all our requests.

We (and many of our friends) stayed at North Shore Inn for a celebration of our son's wedding at Camp Seely. The rooms were fine but small and the beds were comfortable. Good shower.. It's an awkwardly designed place - lots of stairs and hard to get suitcases to the upper rooms, and no common area for gatherings. Definitely an... More

Good Morning, I am confused. You stated there were two steep flights of stairs to your room, there is one. We had rooms available with no stairs, you stated it was not an issue. We would have been more than happy to carry the luggage, you said no thank you. Our rooms are ALL different, the 2 smaller rooms were... More

The North Shore Inn is a small, intimate place to stay in Crestline. It is located right across from lake Gregory, and is convenient to a very nice supermarket, downtown business, and is minutes close to Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. Our room, while small, had all the ameneties we were looking for: patio, fireplace, and convenient location. The room... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the North Shore Inn-clean room, good location across from the lake. A lot less busy than Lake Arrowhead and definitely less costly. It is an easy drive to Blue Jay and Lake Arrowhead to check out the area. The only downside was that our neighbor watched TV until well after 2:00am and again on fairly... More

Hello, we are always glad to hear when a guest has enjoyed the stay here. As for the TV, had I known I could have asked it be turned down a bit. Some times it happens. Please don't let that keep you from coming back. Thank you again for having chosen to stay with us. More

The room was excellent and very clean. It was well located. Close to restaurants, shops and market for food. The view was gorgeous and the fresh air was wonderful. We had stayed there before and the folks that run the North Shore Inn are extremely pleasant and very informative about the area. I recommend this as a fabulous place to... More

Both the property and the service at the property were fantastic. It was so relaxing and comfortable that we extended our stay an extra night. We stayed in two different rooms and both were beautifully appointed, clean, and the beds were fantastic! We felt as if we were sleeping in a cloud. We took advantage of a sunrise Easter service...

The North Shore Inn is a nice and cozy place. Owners are even nicer. We've seen people complaining about having their car being towed or because the area (lake Gregory) is not busy enough... so, first, about towing, if you take care and behave properly, you simply won't have any problem. That's horse sense... About the area, we love it... More
