Quaint property. Owner is often onsite. Room was so dusty last time that I had an asthma attack. The breakfasts are yummy, but are not served early enough for most business travelers (8 to 12).

We have stayed at the Whispering Pines for the last several years during the Whiskey Flats Days festival, always traveling with a large group (15-20), and love it! Using the big suite on the second floor allows us to cook dinner and enjoy hanging out on the large deck. While it's going on you can hear the loudspeakers at the... More

We stayed at the Lodge as part of a trip round CA, just as a stopover, but we wish we'd stayed there a bit longer as it was away from the main tourist places, v peaceful and laid back. The hosts were very friendly, the room was OK with the bonus of the pool which was welcome in summer, and... More

Just outside of Kernville Ca.On Kern river. The sound of the river is most comforting. Quiet place to spend a weekend or week. Great value.

Joining up with my old army friends at the Whispering Pines Lodge is refreshment from my otherwise busy life schedules. Again this Martin Luther King our “Harvey’s Heroes” met for an extended weekend.

Dear Dick and Louise Whitworth, We want to Thank you for for the wonderful stay at Whispering Pines while we were on our honeymoon. The rooms were very comfortable size, and decorated very nicely.

Whispering Pines Lodge was a wonderful place to meet up with friends. Hotel accommodations were outstanding and the town was great for antique shopping. I had a wonderful weekend and would recommend friends to take the weekend during summer to enjoy the pool and the town's river rides. This was my first bed and breakfast and the food and service...

We were looking for overnight accommodation en-route from Vegas to Yosemite and after hours of boring driving on the highway decided to detour via Kernville and spotted Whispering Pines in the 'Rough Guide'. It turned out to be one of the best stays we had during our 18 day tour. The large room was clean and well presented with a... More

Staying at the Whispering Pines is just a fabulous experience! The room, the service, the food and the views are spectacular. We could see the river from our private balcony, and it's a very private place. The local town of Kern is always pleasant and the people are lovely. The best part is the beds, they are WONDERFUL memory foam...the... More
