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

New Asian owner ruined this ONCE beautiful kern river lodge..absolutely zero maintenance and no up keep!! The celling fan placed a few feet right overhead of the bed (extremely dangerous) , No telephones !! toilets clogged daily, TV was hanging half off the dresser but was screwed on so it wouldn't fall off!! And the stairs up to the room... More

The whispering pines lodge is based very close to the river and you can quickly walk down to the river and soak up some of the relaxing atmosphere found there. I loved the large veranda area outside the room where I could sit at a table or one a 'rocking' bench and read by book in the quiet or just... More

This bed & breakfast was great - the only glitch being some issues with the toilet that were unresolved over the weekend I spent (though the plumber's truck was pulling in Monday as I checked out). I hogged the only room with the jacuzzi tub and that worked great, as did the shower. The room was wonderfully quiet and comfortable,... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Whispering Pines. The room was clean, cool and comfortable. Rooms 105-108 all have balconies over looking the river. The sun hits the balcony in the afternoon so it gets hot--we swam in the afternoon in the river and in the beautiful swimming pool. We spent a whole day on the river tubing--which was relaxing...

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
