We spent 3 nights over Thanksgiving at the North Shore in, my wife and I in one room and our son in the room adjacent. Crestline turned out to be a great base for our exploration of the area, and a lot less commercial and crowded than the Arrowhead area. The rooms were comfortable and large. The view of the...

The Room had a beautiful view and was cozy and comfortable. We were traveling with our dog and they were extremely accommodating. We were given bowls and towels for our dog. It was a great help since I forgot both! My husband and I have already told family and friends about this great place.

Thank you for the great review. We love our k 9 companion too. We try to take her with us when ever we can and know these things get forgotten often ( dog dishes, towels etc.). We also appreciate any and all referrals. Thank you again for staying with us.

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and beautifully arranged, though very small. The bathroom was very dated. The sound proofing was inadequate as the noise from adjacent rooms was quite evident.

Hello, you must have gotten one of the lobby level rooms. All of our rooms are different and we are slowly redoing them all. Specifically the bath rooms. Hope you will give us another try in the future.

I had some vacation time and was going through a lot. Needed a quiet place for my sick grandfather and I to stay as he was in my care. Came to this place bc my family had recommended it. Stayed in one of the rooms w/2 beds. All I can say is that if you need a calm, relaxing place...

After a few days in LA, this place was the escape we needed. Check-in was fast and friendly, like coming home, and we were soon in our room relaxing. We had room 7 which has parking right outside the door (as do rooms 5,6 & 8) and a balcony overlooking the lake. Our own table and chairs outside made watching...

Spent the weekend after Labor Day. Nancy and Terry have really spent time making their rooms nicely appointed and distinct. The rooms are always clean and inviting. Lake Gregory is right across the street and makes for the most relaxing time away from our busy lives. Thank you Nancy!

My husband and I spent our anniversary week at the North Shore Inn. Nancy was very kind and accommodating. It was a very quiet place, which we appreciated. Our room was small, which was fine for just the two of us, although I imagine it wouldn't be a great size for a family. The room had been updated and was...
