“Cozy experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The North Shore Inn is a quaint & quiet place. It is exceptionally clean and cozy. I had the upstairs room which came with a balcony & fire place, equipped with a burning log which I lit up and so i could go to sleep with a fire on :)! It is affordable and the bed was really comfortable - which is important to me since i have back problems! Very romantic room - highly recommend it !!! Oh yes, view of Lake Gregory!!

Great location, professional and friendly staff, and well furnished/equipped rooms. Nancy and Terry were very accommodating. Highly recommend this lovely get away location from the city. It was a perfect stay, we couldn't be happier.

We traveled from South Carolina to Crestline and had a wonderful stay. Nancy is a very friendly and made us feel as if we were old friends.
The room was beautiful and the view was wonderful. We plan on another visit soon and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Just returned from a weekend getaway where we stayed at the inn. The room was very clean! The room was lovely with a pretty fireplace, wonderful linens, and a nice balcony with table, chairs, and umbrella. Nancy, the innkeeper, was so nice and very helpful. Listen up when she tells you "this is important!" the bathroom was small, but clean, clean, clean! The room looked just like the pics. The rate was reasonable. Parking right outside your door. Free wifi. The inn is across the street from lake Gregory. There is street noise, but that all ends during the sleeping hours. Loved our stay there. Very quaint.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 8. I loved the room.

Have stayed twice over the past 2 summers, each time for 1 week. The room we had is very nice and spacious. The bed is sooooo comfortable with a memory foam topper! Nancy has tried to think of everything to make your stay pleasant and for me she has succeded. It is usually quiet and peaceful. (Not really a place for small children.) It's kinda the place you go to get away from the bussel of a busy world.... to sleep late and enjoy the beauty of the lake. Close to an Am/Pm type place and a large grocery. Crestline shops etc. are just a little ways away...Big Bear Lake is a nice day trip. We stay while our son goes to Pali Adventure Camp and Nancy is so helpful with everything to accomodate us. Looking foreward to next summer. Thanks Nancy, Husband and your sweet Doggie! Carolyn

We stayed two nights at the North Shore Inn and loved everything about it. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely furnished, and also include a small refrigerator and microwave which we appreciated. We especially enjoyed the balcony and had breakfast overlooking the lake each morning. Nancy and all the staff were wonderful and very helpful. Crestline is a lovely little mountain town, not too far from the city, and yet far enough to be above the heat and smog of L.A. We especially loved the location of the Inn which is in walking distance of stores and right across the street from beautiful Lake Gregory.
