Definitely a hidden gem. The staff is very polite and wonderful. The room was very clean, beautiful view of the lake. Even had a fireplace! Would definitely come again.

The North Shore Inn is the finest jewel in a quaint little town! Our stay here was fantastic! My husband and I were visiting friends for New Years Eve and absolutely loved this place. When checking in we met Nancy, the owner, and the most impressive and loving Daisy, the star of the Inn. We immediately felt like we were home! Nancy is so welcoming with her sense of humor and wealth of info about Crestline. She's the kind of person that when you meet her you just know you've met a good friend!

The rooms are definitely not your standard hotel room. They are beautiful! The bed is made with luxurious bedding and a half dozen pillows perfectly arranged. The bed was a comfortable and snuggly kind of mattress. With a bad back I usually don't sleep well in hotel beds, but I slept really well on this bed! The room has all the amenities you need and the view of Lake Gregory from the balcony was so beautiful with a winter peacefulness.

The North Shore Inn is our perfect ittle getaway from the world of Las Vegas. Can't wait to go back and visit with Nancy and Daisy!! Summertime should be fun!!

We have been coming to the North Shore Inn for a couple of years. It is situated lakeside in a delight and friendly mountain community. The rooms are individually decorated to different themes such that each one has a very unique personality. They are plushly appointed, competitively priced, and walking distance from town. Highly recommended.

A local Realtor had recommended we go to the North Shore Inn and boy were we glad we did. The owner Nancy, was completely accommodating and knew everywhere to go in town...Loved Daisy the pup, she is the cutest canine this side of the mountain. Rooms were charming, clean and fully accessorized. If you can book a room with a lake view and fireplace, its is a HUGE plus!!! Thanks for the nice experience.We will definitely be back.

Good value, good service, friendly staff. I wish it was a little closer to Big Bear, but can't complain.

The Northshore Inn in Crestline, CA - is quite the hidden gem. We are an Orange County business catering an event at Lake Gregory, and we found the Northshore Inn online. When we arrived - the rooms were even more quaint than the photos. We loved it. We had 2 rooms for our team, and our accomodations were amazing. We loved everythig about it. And Nancy, the owner, made us feel at home, as if it were our home.
When we arrived back to Northshore Inn following our event, it was about 9 p.m. - and Nancy and her family greeted us, and even offered their home refrigerator to help us store some of our cold items. We had even prepared dinner for them, that's how gracious Nancy and her husband was to Simply A Soiree. With that - we are heading back to the Northshore Inn next month - and can't wait to see Nancy!
