A few months ago we tried to reserve a cabin at Whispering Pines Resort, but they were booked several weeks ahead for the summer. I called this Friday and was able to reserve the perfect cabin for the same weekend. We stayed in cabin 38 which is at the back of the property, has a spa tub, and is pet... More

Awesome! So happy to hear that you and the family were welcomed by all, and that you enjoyed some quiet time in the beautiful White Mountains! While we do provide WiFi, as you can imagine it is hard to keep the signal strong throughout the many acres here, so happy when our guests choose to "unplug" for awhile as a... More

I stayed 3 days at Whispering Pines Resort earlier this week and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The cabin was furnished with everything I could possibly need and provided such a relaxing atmosphere. The cabins are nestled among pines and oak trees and afford a decent amount of privacy. I was in cabin 6, and though the map looks like it's... More

This was our first stay and we were very happy with everything. We were in cabin 31 which was well off of the highway and had a jacuzi tub which really felt great after the drive up there. Everything was very clean and furnishings were in very good shape. They did provide free Wifi but it was a little slow.... More

Hi Dave! Love that you came to see us, and we are all thrilled to hear that you were not disappointed with the accommodations....except of course, the BBQ. I understand your gas grill preferences as they are certainly easier, however, the majority of our guests seem to prefer the charcoal over gas. We believe this is in part because they... More

As part of the Phoenix heat of summer it is nice to have a place to escape to and leave all your troubles in the Valley. That place is Pinetop and a great place to stay is Whispering Pines Resort. 38 individual cabins all tucked into the pine trees. It is an oasis that I would recommend getting to you... More

Our family loves staying at Whispering Pines Resort! The cabin is like a miniature home away from home surrounded by tall sweet smelling pines! Cabin 18 was very comfortable with a kitchenette complete with refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, electric range and oven, complete with silverware and dinnerware. Bring your own napkins and paper towels and you're set. The cabin... More

What a beautiful visit to Pinetop. I'm more of a hotel girl, but Whispering Pines cabins were just what I needed for this weekend. Beautiful weather, the smell of the pines, clean, comfortable stay. And a short walk to Darbi's restaurant. Definitely coming back a few more times this summer. We stayed in cabin 23, had 2 bedrooms and a... More

Great cabin, great service. We had a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin. It was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed in the kitchen. We had originally booked a 1 bedroom and it apparently was a pet friendly cabin (which we did not need) but another party did so they upgraded us to a 3 bedroom spa unit... More

Thank you for allowing us to upgrade you so that we could welcome another family who was traveling with their pet, it was very selfless and most appreciated by our other guest as well.
