“Delightful cozy place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2007

When I go on trip, I alway s like to feel like I am at home.
This is a cozy place to stay. VERY reasonable prices.
It's right across the street from the lake. We had a good
time. I would recommend this place to others. Managers
very friendly. We will go back there again soon.

  • Liked — I enjoyed the rooms cozy like feeling.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2007

We recently spent two nights at the North Shore Inn. Our room, facing the front of the building, was not large but was nicely decorated and bathroom extra clean with all the little extras. Everything was extremely clean to a high standard. The bed was comfy with feather doona and satin sheets! We had a small fridge and microwave and tea and coffee making facilities. The balcony off the main bedroom faced the views and was a private, sunny nook.

The property is built on the side of a hill so there are quite a few steep stairs if you book a lower room. Next time I would book a room on the back street entrance and forego the view as the main road goes past the Inn and extremely busy and noisy. So apart from the road noise we recommend this as a good place to stay.

Lyn and I really love the charm and ambiance of the North Shore Inn. It's "curb appeal" is awesome, and it is surprising to see what is offered at this 'little' big or 'big' little inn. It's truly unique, and is carved into the forest hillside in Crestline, at Lake Gregory.

The rooms are cozy, recently redecorated, clean and comfortable. Many have fireplaces, as we always choose, and the staff bends over backwards to be sure everything is just right for their guests.

I have recommended the North Shore in hundreds of times to my friends, and I carry photos of the Inn in my Palm Pilot, and share them freely.

It's nice to be a returning "regular" visitort, and be treated like "old friends."
