5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Room was beautiful, updated, cozy, new, affordable. The location couldn't have been better, a stones throw from the lake. Best family vacation ever. Staff was helpful. Drank wine on my balcony as the kids had time
Of their life across the street at the lake. Thanks north shore

Very accommodating staff, nice rooms with good views and Quiet. We walked to lake recreation and ate at the Mexican restaurant next door. It was nice to just park the car and leave it. The suite is really nice with a large balcony and kitchen. The only downside was the futon, which was uncomfortable, but my wife two kids and I were able to all fit on the Kingsized bed so no worries. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that has a view towards the lake.

Hello John, thank you for taking the time to share with others. Having Lake Gregory across the street is very convenient for fun times. We usually don't recommend the futon for adults, am glad you were all comfy. We will be working on the kitchen & living room this winter.You will have to come back & see the changes when we are done.

Wonderful, charming, family-run inn. Convenient access to town and right across from Lake Gregory with its swimming and boating. Great views. Plush accomodations. We just spent our third straight summer there.

Hi Mark,
It was so great to see you and the family again. And as always it was a pleasure having you here. Lake Gregory has so many new things for the winter too. Bring the kids back for that snow play. Hope to see you soon.

We booked a couple of weekdays at The North Shore Inn. It is a very quaint place, very quiet, and right across from Lake Gregory. The room was very clean, and has everything you need. The owners are great, friendly people, as well as their staff. The town itself is very quaint, laid back, and relaxing. GPS took us everywhere we wanted to go. This is a great place for a romantic getaway, close to Lake Arrowhead and half an hour from San Bernardino/Loma Linda. Prices are great, we will definitely be going back again.

Room Tip: Review their rooms online, they have a great website with pictures and room descriptions. Please no...

Great value, comfort, and location. The upstairs has two connected balconies looking out over the lake. Full kitchen, sofa, nice bathroom, and two TVs are included in the suite my wife and I shared for our honeymoon.

I really enjoyed staying at this north shore inn. Very convenient location near by Lake Arrowhead. Comfortable bed with cute patio and fireplace. I'd like to come back again for short trip =) Owners were very nice. Grocery store and thrift store, restaurants are walking distance.

I was looking for the opposite of a chain hotel and I found it with North Shore Inn. Nancy is very personable and the building has more of an "inn-like" feel rather than a stock-quality Best Western. My room was an economy one, but it was very clean and cozy, loved the sink area and outdoor balcony with a view of trees. It's right across the street from Lake Gregory, the grocery store and a couple miles away from beautiful hiking trails. A great place for a lone traveler, with family or friends!
