Upon check-in we were not told that there wasn't a telephone in the room, nor a pay phone near the room. This got my wife and I thinking what if we need emergency services? How would they find us if we couldn't provide the address? What if we needed additional towels, or bath soap. We would have to walk up... More

My sister-in-law and I arrived in Kernville on a Friday afternoon for a weekend of hiking. The hotel that we had arranged to stay at in town was horrible. Our room was filthy and the whole place was very rundown. Fortunately for us we were able to find a room at Whispering Pines Lodge for a very reasonable rate considering... More

we stayed for two nights and for sure the lovely Kern River outside the balcony is a lullaby but I think it is over priced and the extras could use some upgrading. A newer mattress would have been welcome . The decor is confusing, a mixture of Victorian meets western lodge The coffee maker in the room is not the... More

DO NOT STAY HERE! Me and my fiance wanted to have our wedding here. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were alright (although they were over priced and old). We were offered a package deal for the use of the venue and the renting of their rooms. We come from out of town to meet with the manager a... More

Go and enjoy. Great place to have a reunion. We go every year. It is very relaxing and peaceful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are very accommodating for our large group of 26. We enjoyed the visit to the lake and the local ghost town. They also have a great local swap meet with beautiful antiques. The... More

My wife Patti and I are first time visitors and just wanted to thank you for your hospitality! We have already started talking about plans for our next visit this summer. We posted some pics on FB and have a couple friends from work who will be making the 2 hour drive to see you as well. See you again... More

Pulling into the bed and breakfast from the road, I knew this was going to be a peaceful weekend. We lucked out and got a river view room - nothing but nature to contend with! The breakfast was wonderful with plenty to eat and the location was quiet and not far away from the small town to go sightseeing and... More

Our cabin was very comfortable, and the king sized bed was one of those tempur-pedics. There was a nice swimming pool, and a private fishing section along the Kern River. Cabin had a nice balcony wirh a great view, and a small gas grill. The breakfasts were outasight!!

Excellent service. Great staff. Clean room. Amazing views. Wonderful breakfast. Will definitely return . Stayed 2 nights in a beautifully up kept room very clean. The staff were very helpful and courteous. All of our needs were attended to and met promptly. Can't say enough about the superb breakfast.

Tripadvisor has been very kind and very rough on this place. We went over Thanksgiving, the room we stayed in (riverfront) was comfortable, meticulously cleaned, well-furnished, well-maintained. It's clear that the new-ish owners are making a big investment in getting this place awesome. The staff was also very helpful and very proactive -- makes for a really nice and authentic... More
