Had such a wonderful time staying at the North Shore Inn. The room was absolutely beautifully set, from the bubble and flowers I requested to the view of Lake Gregory to the wonderful setting of the bed. I recommend this place to anyone who is coming up on an anniversary or just looking for a nice and cozy place to... More

We only had one night in this lovely little Inn. If my travels takes me to Crestline, CA again, I will definitely want to stay longer. Great location, hospitality and terrific Mexican restaurant right next door.

Thought the building was older than it actually is. The Inn is across the main road from the lake, and was nice just sitting on the balcony of our room overlooking the lake, though it was partially hidden by trees. Our room was a King De Luxe - very clean and comfortable. The only complaint I have, if you could... More

Crestline and this inn look very much like an americanized version of Switzerland (or Tyrol). The inn is right across the lake, there is a supermarket around the corner and a couple of little restaurants. Nancy, who I believe owns and runs the place, was very welcoming and helpful, gave us a lot of tips. Our room was lovely, with... More

Hello, I am glad you enjoyed the room. "Bavarian" style hotels, the furniture is a rich Mahogany or black we are trying to reflect that to a degree. Not quite sure where to go with it now, glad you enjoyed it. Maybe you can come see the progress on your next vacation. We would love to have you back. More

Good location, across street from Lake Gregory. Nice big fireplace, with log. Bed was comfortable. Owner was very nice. Good parking right by unit in back. However, the decor did not live up to the photos. Plastic trees and plastic flowers are not appealing. The decor is in bad need of an update. Rid the bed of all those 'accessory'... More

There are 2 firm pillows, 2 medium & 2 feather pillows so guests have options. We don't have plastic plants....Most people enjoy the Paya toiletries we provide free.

How often does a hotel exceed your expectations? The North Shore Inn is actually nicer than it appears on-line. Our room (#3) was beautiful and comfortable. The inn keepers are extremely helpful in recommending local restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

The room was really beautiful, a lot of traffic outside, but the double glazed window and black curtain lining kept it quiet and dark. Nice balcony to sit on and look at the Lake view. We did not like the options for breakfast restaurants and found it better to buy our own food and have it in our room.

Hello, Thank you for taking time to share with others, word of mouth is always the best advertising. Happy to hear the black out drapes and dual pane windows help. It was an issue years ago. I like breakfast on the balcony too. There are several restaurants within walking distance from the hotel besides the one next door. I know... More
