We stayed here 1 night to see how we might like living in Crestline. There's not many choices here, and the North Shore Inn is right across the street from the lake. We had a nice room with a balcony and view of the lake. It was comfortable, right next door to a Mexican restaurant. The only drawback was the... More

Hello, thank you for sharing with others. It can be noisy when the windows are open, but we have the lake. It is as others have said quieter with windows shut. Between the morning rush & early evening it does calm down. And the nights are beautiful, true it is not for everyone. Thank you again. More

Stayed for one night while on a road trip. The room was large, with a balcony, and clean. Loved the soap and shampoo (lovely scent). Even though it was summertime, the room and inn were quiet and peaceful. We were able to walk to restaurants. Lake regory is across the street. It has a large water recreational area with activities... More

Hello, thank you for taking the time to share with others. Happy to hear we did our jobs with the room and its amenities. It took a long time to find just the right soaps etc; When traveling through Crestline we hope you will come back & try another room (they are all different). Thank you again. More

My Husband and I loved our stay at The North Shore Inn while attending his granddaughter's wedding last weekend. The room was just what I was looking for. Comfortable Queen Size bed with lots of pillow options, corner fireplace with fire log included so we could enjoy a wonderful fire each night we were there. Great little patio to sit... More

Hi Nancy, It was a pleasure having you & Kai here with us. Glad to hear the room was what you were expecting from us. Room #10 has always been one of my favorites. Please come on back and stay with us when ever you are in Crestline. More

We were searching the nearby areas for wedding venues, but all the inns, hotels, and resorts were booked solid for the night. They actually called us when they had a last minute cancelation and we had a beautiful warm bed for the night. The site was wonderful, view was amazing and they were the friendliest people out there. The room... More

Another great trip to Lake Gregory and stay at the North Shore Inn. Our room had all that we needed and my husband and I enjoyed afternoon wine and cheese on our balcony. The owners are very friendly.

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

Hi Robin, thank you for your comments. The bathroom might seem a bit small, we chose to use some of that space to put built in Fridge, Micro & coffee maker in the room instead. I know a lot of the larger hotels exclude them, but we find them convenient. Sorry about the freezer, it had been very busy &... 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
