My husband and I stayed here the night before and the night of our wedding, as well as our entire bridal party. We enjoyed it so much we returned this year to celebrate our Anniversary. I know some of our bridal party has also returned. The North Shore Inn is a great family run business where you feel right at... More

I found this inn quite by accident. I was doing an internet search for dog friendly lodging in Lake Arrowhead. The North Shore Inn popped up and boy, my husband and I were so glad it did! The town of Crestline is a small, quaint town with friendly people. The inn is right by Lake Gregory. We walked around the... More

The warmth of the decorating and the cleanliness of the suite were impeccable. The staff was very accommodating and very customer oriented. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if I ever return to the mountain. A very homey atmosphere right down to the beautiful dog, Daisy to greet you. The view from our suite was so enjoyable and pretty... More

It was great to stay with pillows and a wonderful comforter. Small town vibe which is what we wanted and a great view of the lake. Real glasses in the room and nice inn owners. My daughter and I went to go fishing and it was just great. They offered help in getting us to a creek for fishing and... More

We needed a break from busy bee life. Looking for a quaint room. We loved our room, a comfortable bed and beautifully decorated. The welcome was warm and tips to make our stay comfortable. Favorite part was the balcony overlooking the lake and watching the pine tree sway. A perfect quick get way from Canyon Hills to Crestline ! We... More

We stayed here with the family and simply had a ball. It was so close to the water that we were able to return to our hotel to use the restroom versus using public facilities. I have not one bad thing to say about this place. The beds are unlike any I have slept on around this state (we travel... More

We were delighted with Nancy and Terry as innkeepers. They did everything in their power to make our stay be everything we could have hoped for. The rooms were comfortable and the view from the deck delightful! The refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms were a real plus as well. With Lake Gregory and restaurants nearby and a peaceful location....what... More

I have been a frequent visitor to Lake Gregory and Lake Arrowhead for the past 35 years. I have rented cabins, hotel rooms and even stayed at the Lake Arrowhead Resort, and quite frankly, the BEST accommodations are those offered at the North Shore Inn. The rooms are exquisitely decorated, each with its own unique flair. I treated myself to... More

We recently spent a weekend in Crestline and were lucky to have reservations at The North Shore Inn. We had a wonderful time -- very comfortable accommodations with lots of sweet touches that made our stay exceptional. The Inn is right across from Lake Gregory, so balconies have lake views and birdsong. Owners Nancy and Terry are very friendly and... More

Everyone in SoCal knows about Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear... and the ridiculous crowds that come with them. If you truly want a quiet and relaxing mountain getaway then you need to go to Lake Gregory. And if you do, North Shore is the perfect option. The chateau sits directly across the street from the lake with decent views through... More
