Perfect weekend getaway. Rooms are spacious, clean, and the view from the balcony was beautiful. Loved having a fireplace in the room! Highly recommend this hotel. Great friendly service.

If you're looking for a place to stay close to the LA Metro area but want to feel relaxed and away from it all, then North Shore is your place. Crestline is literally 15-20 minutes up the mountain once you get off the freeway and so much easier to get to than Arrowhead or Big Bear. It's perfect! Nancy(the owner) is fantastic person and makes North Shore feel like a home away from home. I'll be back in summer!

Note - Don't forget to meet Daisy

The bedding is beautiful & the bed was super comfy! I have back problems & didn't toss & turn at all. We're both tall & the shower nozzle was at a good height. There is a tub. :) The water heats up right away, too. Seems they do not run out. Room had LOTS of bath towels & beautifully folded face/ hand towels & wash cloths. The DVD player, TV, fridge & wifi worked great. There is a microwave too. We had a corner room w/good views (lakeside :).

Much of the mountain lost power one night (due to lots of GORGEOUS snow) while we were up there. North Shore Inn was perhaps the 1st to come back on & stay on. Some locals even wanted to check in.

The location was perfectly situated for walking to many places in town & around the lake.

My husband & I checked in just as snow began to fall. This made the view of the lake & trees as we walked into our room that much more lovely. Nancy had turned the heat on prior to our arrival. So, we had a nice, cozy room right away!

Nancy, Terry & Daisy made our stay charming & wonderful! They were super helpful in getting our car out of the snow, too!

Room Tip: Some have lake views.

We booked a weekend on one of the cozier rooms with a king bed and fireplace. We got there late Friday afternoon, Went out for dinner and had a great time (but don't go to "The Bear Claw" for a night cap, that place was a bar fight waiting to happen). Spend Saturday enjoying champagne and the view from our room and went to the dinner and music and dancing with some of the locals. All in all we had a great time and we are looking forward to coming back again. The rooms are wonderful, clean and the staff is very nice although one of them really likes to lick you (I'm talking about Daisy the doggie). If you can, try to book room 9 - but not when we are there!

We found this place on a fluke - last minute arrangement - was the best thing that ever happened! Nancy was wonderful, left a personalized hand written note for us at the door and had our heater on so the room was cozy when we got in. (We arrived at 11:30 at night - during snow covered grounds) We had bo idea what the outside was like until we awoke in the morning to the breaktaking view of the lake and - wow - it was so wonderful. We ate in town and everyone is so friendly. You can walk to everything. We are going back in the summer to enjoy some lake fun! Cannot wait!

A wonderful mountain getaway. At check in, you will be greeted by the owners and their
(very friendly!) dog. You'll feel welcome immediately. Rooms are nicely appointed and
very comfortable. We enjoyed a nice view of the lake from our balcony. We've been
to The North Shore Inn several times and have found that the other guests who stay
here seem to be return guests as well. Once you visit this inn, you'll be back!
