North Shore was exactly what I was looking for. The staff was so welcoming and had great ideas for me and my son to take advantage of during our stay. The room was exactly like the photo and very clean and welcoming. We are definitely doing this as a yearly tradition and of course we will be staying at North... More

The North Shore Inn is such a great place to stay. Our room was amazing and we really enjoyed the views and hiking in the area. Easy check in with friendly information about the local attractions. You're just steps from the lake and with the clean mountain air it feels like a getaway from the crazy city below. We will... More

We booked a stay at this inn as a last minute extension to our vacation. Nancy couldn't have been more helpful in setting up our arrangements. Our room was ready and were promptly checked in. The room was very clean with a modern and recently redone bathroom. The decor is a little dated but consistent with a cabinish look. Our... More

Nancy was very kind, friendly, and welcoming. The room was clean and very comfortable and the location was great, right across from the lake and walking distance to shops. I would recommend this inn and look forward to visiting again.

I have never met a more helpful and pleasant staff. The furnishings are top notch, both in style and execution. No cost was spared, right down to the sheets. We will make a visit to them again and again. This hotel should be at least a 4 star, and maybe even a 5 star. The owner met us upon arrival... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights over Thanksgiving. I found this little gem quite by accident as I was looking for something in Arrowhead but no availability.

We love being able to have this place to go to for a quick get away from the city. It's often booked way ahead, so some planning is required, however we have lucked out to book just a few days ahead as well. Dependably clean, not a luxury hotel - but luxurious bed linens.

Outstanding accommodation and value for money - very classy and clean. Rooms have a private balcony which is great for eating lunch and breakfast. Wi-fi is excellent. This is easily the best place to stay in Crestline. Not far from the famous hang gliding take off which is well used in the spring and summer months.
