“If your expecting a 5 Star Hotel, this is not the place for you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

I titled it for a reason, This place is very gracious and homey and if you like that kind of place your will L.O.V.E this place...the Inn owners are very pleasant, the rom was so beautiful with a fire place..OMG...Great place to relax and enjoy the lake, great price and the area is just plain relaxing and beautiful. By the way the town rolls up at 8pm and some restaurants close at 10 some earlier but hey who cares, when you can go back and rent a DVD and relax. Not a place for a family for say, kids may not understand this is a relaxing place for us people who just want to get away..if that is what you are looking for...this is the best place to be...and very reasonable I might ad.

After a short and easy drive up Hwy 18, we've visited twice now and will always return. Mid week is very very quiet, even with the balcony overlooking a main thoroughfare and lake. Rooms are very up to date and among the cleanest you will find. Not a thing out of place.

Conveniently located to town, you can easily walk to a nice independent market and many good eateries along the main street. Just a across the street, there is a popular walking trail that many locals use in the evening to circumvent Lake Gregory. I believe it is 3.5 miles around. If you're into fishing, there is plenty of access to the shoreline.

There are many hiking trails to explore on the San Bernardino National Forest, if you're into a short easy hike, Heart Rock is a good one to look up, just out of town, near Crest Forest.

Sking is roughly 15 miles away at Snow Valley. You can ski free on your birthday and they have night skiing on the weekends during mid-season.

Nearby, Lake Arrowhead has a nice Village area filled with many shops and eateries. Their Christmas decor is something to see in the season. During the summer months, they have boat tours and entertainment in the square. There is also a very nice drive around the lake.

A popular hike near there is down the Deep Creek Trail, past Cedar Glenn. Don't forget to stop in at the Malt Shoppe on your way back.

Room Tip: If you choose a room with a fireplace, bring an extra Presto log or two for extra nights....

Me & my girlfriend had the most wonderful time here. We were there from a Friday to a Monday & loved it. The owner was very welcoming & knows how to treat her guest. We most definitely will be going on back in the future.

A must see! The beautifully designed suites and recently renovated spa like bathrooms are just the beginning to what the North Shore Inn is! What a view of Lake Gregory! Nancy, owner, is extremely accommodating for absolutely any need one may have at this home away from home!

Room Tip: Suite #11: Beautiful View, top of the line spa and the most comfortable bed I have ever been in!

We love this inn and have been there 3 anniversaries in a room. We especially love room #5 as it perfectly suited for a romantic weekend for couples with fireplace, gorgeous bed linens and comfy bed. There is also a microwave and fridge along with wine glasses and a private patio. The rooms are always in the best condition and look inviting. Definite value for the price too!!

LOVED it so much the first time, were going back this weekend...! Lovely little community with fantastic walking trails, creeks, restaurants and markets. Truly a gem in the San Bernardino Mtns. Must go!

Room Tip: Get one with a fireplace in winter.
