“Comfy and cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

The North Shore Inn is a great get-away. It's across the street from Lake Gregory and a grocery store, which makes the location very convenient. It's on a major road so there's a bit of road noise, but other than that it was wonderfully peaceful. I stayed in Room # 8 with a fireplace and a king-size bed that I didn't want to leave. Nancy, the owner, was extremely helpful and welcoming. Wish I could have stayed longer. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the lake. The fireplace was a great feature; made the room really cozy esp...

Great, comfortable, elegantly furnished and spotless room and bathroom. Nancy was so nice, helpful and accommodating. Would return again and again!! Room had microwave and mini fridge, and Namcy was but a buzzer away and responded very quickly to all our requests.

We (and many of our friends) stayed at North Shore Inn for a celebration of our son's wedding at Camp Seely. The rooms were fine but small and the beds were comfortable. Good shower.. It's an awkwardly designed place - lots of stairs and hard to get suitcases to the upper rooms, and no common area for gatherings.

Definitely an OK place for a short stay.

Good Morning,

I am confused. You stated there were two steep flights of stairs to your room, there is one. We had rooms available with no stairs, you stated it was not an issue. We would have been more than happy to carry the luggage, you said no thank you.
Our rooms are ALL different, the 2 smaller rooms were booked at your friends choice. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the shower and the bed, they are great aren't they.

Thank you for the comments
Sincerely, The North Shore Inn

The North Shore Inn is a small, intimate place to stay in Crestline. It is located right across from lake Gregory, and is convenient to a very nice supermarket, downtown business, and is minutes close to Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear.

Our room, while small, had all the ameneties we were looking for: patio, fireplace, and convenient location. The room was exceptionally clean, well appointed, and the bed is to die for. Staff is exceptional.

If you are looking for a quier, romantic get-a-way, this is the place to come.

Thank you for the gracious comments. We do try. All of our rooms are different, maybe one of the others will be roomier for you on a return trip. Thank you for having taken time to share.

Really enjoyed our stay at the North Shore Inn-clean room, good location across from the
lake. A lot less busy than Lake Arrowhead and definitely less costly. It is an easy drive
to Blue Jay and Lake Arrowhead to check out the area. The only downside was that our
neighbor watched TV until well after 2:00am and again on fairly early in the morning! Walls are not that thick. If I had brought ear plugs then it would have been fine!
Would definitely stay again. Easy drive for us from Orange County and a great getaway.

Hello, we are always glad to hear when a guest has enjoyed the stay here. As for the TV, had I known I could have asked it be turned down a bit. Some times it happens. Please don't let that keep you from coming back. Thank you again for having chosen to stay with us.

The room was excellent and very clean. It was well located. Close to restaurants, shops and market for food. The view was gorgeous and the fresh air was wonderful. We had stayed there before and the folks that run the North Shore Inn are extremely pleasant and very informative about the area. I recommend this as a fabulous place to stay.
