This inn has a great location, with obscured views of the lake (through trees) and proximity to the business portion of town. No need to get in your car, unless you want to. We had a deluxe king room that was smaller than expected, but okay for a couple of nights. Coffeemaker was good; did not use the microwave; refrigerator... More

We stayed here last month and the rooms were clean, relatively new and well maintained. The couple that runs the Inn is a very nice couple. Lake Gregory is great place to get a nice, quiet getaway. However, beware of bringing a family here - they weren't exactly welcoming to our young ones and they charged us $10 for each... More

Hello, thank you for noticing the care we put into the rooms. When you booked you said 2 people. However you were putting five people in a room, which can be quite noisy & is why we do this. She was told at that time the rate is based on double occupancy & does not include taxes. We charged you... More

The North Shore Inn is a cozy little place in a prime location right on Lake Gregory. The room was lovely, very clean and well stocked and even had a little patio with a view of the lake. The staff was also very friendly and welcoming. In addition to the lake, stores, bars and restaurants are all within walking distance.... More

North Shore Inn was very nice overall. Our room needed a new mattress, however we will stay again and try a different room. It would be even better if the hotel was non-smoking! Smoking allowed on balconies in close quarters for a non-smoker was tough. Located directly across from the lake with nice walking trails, eateries nearby and a grocery... More

Hi Robi, Thank you for taking the time to share with others. I did check the mattress out and although we have thick memory foam mattresses on the beds, I could see where it might be a bit soft for some. Not all the beds are the same, but will be looking into changes soon for that one. As for... More

I can only say alot about our stay at North Shore Inn:) First of all, one of the owners (Nancy) greeted us with a huge smile, and awesome reccommendations for dinner and breakfast (which we followed and were super happy with). Her hotel is amazingly decorated and each room is totally different. She and her husband have literally replicated perfectly... More

Yes because my wife and I needed to get out of the city. It was our first trip to the lake...any lake. I called the North Shore Inn and Nancy answered the phone. She is excellent and convinced us to stay with them. Perfect perfect perfect. Very friendly and respectful of service members. Donna was sweet and helped us feel... More

This was the first time my family and I have come up to Crestline. I don't know why we never came up before considering how close it is to Orange County. We decided to stay at North Shore based on the other TripAdvisor reviews, and the reviews were spot on! North Shore is located directly across the street from the... More

We loved our stay at The North Shore Inn! The room was cozy with a fireplace, very nicely decorated, clean, bed was comfortable and there were plenty of clean towels! That's something you don't usually get unless you ask for it! There was even a free fire log included for each night! The host was very friendly and offered nice... More

Good Morning, we want to say thank you for staying with us. Happy to hear we stocked all the essentials that are needed (a big issue with me). Come up to lake Gregory during winter, you can watch the fire in the fireplace and snow at the same time. Hope to see you again soon. More
