We stayed for 1 night over Easter and found the place just OK. The rooms overlooking the river have a nice view but our room was quite dated. I was a little unimpressed when we pointed out to the receptionist that our patio door lock was broken and there was no securing the door, the receptionist said “it’ll be fine,... More

This quaint little lodge was perfectly accommodating to all of our needs. Our room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was a fantastic place to rest our heads. We thoroughly enjoyed our electric fireplace and FANTASTIC balcony overseeing the river! The balcony wasn't teeny tiny as I would expect either, it was roomy and had outdoor seating... More

Approaching this lodge, I was starting to doubt if there would be any pines to whisper. My doubts were quickly turned into a pleasant surprise when we arrived. The scene is sublime. The pool was empty as was most of the rooms I think (January). The sun barked down, but when it settled, temperatures dumbled quickly. At that point the... More

We have been going to Whispering Pines Bed & Breakfast for years, but noticed the last few times there was a definite difference. I believe this whole place needs a good cleaning. The walls are very dirty and need painting. rugs shampooed. curtains and seat cushions cleaned. Our room had many negatives - filthy throw rug and kitchenette. Shower curtain... More

The end of a long day on the road with nowhere to stay we were very lucky to find the excellent Whispering Pines Lodge. It was a Sunday night, getting late and most places in Kernville weren't answering their phone. My lady had tried The Kern Lodge as their roadside sign said "Vacancy" and was yelled at by a rude...

We had a great time staying at the Whispering Pines Lodge. They have a nice pool and kids enjoyed it very much. The breakfast they provide was delicious. In the afternoon my husband went to buy some meat at the local grocery store and we used the grill on the property to make some barbeque. The staff was very friendly... More

I had the pleasure of visiting Whispering Pines. The scenery was priceless, the complementary breakfast had everything you could imagine. Prices are fair. I enjoyed my stay and I will be sure to tell all my friends and family.

Came here with friends for a getaway weekend. All the staff was very nice. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good. We requested rooms 107 & 108 which we got. They have great views and balconies. We really enjoyed our stay we just all agree that the price is a bit high. We do recommend this... More

The property is right on Sierra Way, but runs down to the river. We had what must be the honeymoon suite, as it had a jacuzzi tub. The fireplace wasn't working, but we were warned at check in, and the room was discounted accordingly. The decor was not to my taste, but still, it was very cozy and nice, with... More

I reviewed this propery in May 2011. I vowed to never stay there again, and have tried a few other motels; unfortunately, this is the nicest property in 1.5 hours. I recently stayed again; I'm glad to report that many much-needed changes are being made. My room had brand new curtains, pillows, comforter, and a skirt. I saw carpet cleaners... More
