They have upgraded the room(s) so when you open the door you are greeted by a luxuriously made bed with tons of decorative pillows! (which any other... More

Hi Brenda, we are pleased you enjoyed the room and all of the extras. We do try to make sure the right pillow is available for you when trying to get a good night sleep. The price difference, you were here on the weekend and had a room which does accommodate 4 people. She had the smallest room, no extras... More

My Husband and I had an awful experience at North Shore Inn. The advertised "Memory Foam Topper" is nothing more than 4" of foam. Initially, it felt like sinking into a cloud. But, by 2 in the morning, it felt like falling into a pit. I woke up with a terrible headache due to the lack of support FOAM provides,... More

My wife and I fell absolutely in love with The North Shore Inn on our recent 30th wedding anniversary. We were searching for a romantic, convenient getaway that was both affordable and close-to-home and the North Shore Inn exceeded all of our expectations. The Inn is literally steps away from the entrance to Lake Gregory, The North Shore Inn has... More

Hi Vance, Thank you for the rave review! It was great having you and Kim here and we enjoyed talking with the two of you. You will have to come in the winter to see how the place changes, there won't be a raft but maybe a sleigh. More

One of my measures of a good hotel is how my teenage grandchildren react. Upon arriving at the North Shore Inn, the kids were ecstatic at the location and it's proximity to the lake. The hotel room was clean and comfortable; it had everything we needed (including coffee maker, refrigerator, Vcr). The staff was very courteous and helpful. The only... More

The room was affordable and accessible without steps which helped us immensely and comfortable with a nice bathroom. The view of Lake Gregory from our veranda was beautiful. Everything was to our complete satisfaction...well the pillows were almost too abundant and the coffee wasn't very good, but there were places close to get fed and watered (Crestline Cafe and Goodwin's...

Excellent location, parked the car once never had to move it again until it was time to leave. Rooms are small but have everything you need, very clean, private and quiet, the owners are friendly and helpful, they know where everything is, in and out of town. The space is rustic and quaint just what you expect in the mountains... More
