Wonderful resort! We stayed here for a week this July. We stayed in Cabin 8 and my parents were across the drive in Cabin 5. The resort area is quiet and very well maintained. The cabins were cozy and VERY clean! We also rented a pontoon boat for the week and it was ideal. Bob and Marilyn were always available... More

Pontoon was great. Called the day before to rent, great price, love that it is a longer rental than most 7a to 630p. The guy was very nice. I would definitely do business here again. The onky problem is the map shows it past malcolm creek on the water from moors. It was actually before so er couldn't find it... More

We have been coming to this resort for 35 years and three different owners. Bob and Marilyn are the best. They make sure you are welcomed and address every concern you have.The reason I don't want to let the secret out is that they only have 11 cabins and if the word gets out it may be difficult to get...

My husband and I stayed in cabin 6 at Whispering Oaks (located near Draffenville, Benton and Aurora) and were happy to be able to take our dogs along for a small additional fee. It was cozy, clean and quiet. We enjoyed fishing and relaxing lakeside. We can't wait to return!

The owners at Whispering Oaks go out of their way to make you feel like friends and family. Even our dog was welcomed with open arms. Everything is kept nice both inside the cabin and on the grounds and the location is great.

We have been going here every summer for the past 6 years and can't say enough about this place. We have stayed in almost every cabin, and each one is great. We personally like cabin #5 because it is closest to the lake and has a deck that is shaded throughout the day. The owners, Marilyn and Bob, are most... More

We stayed at Whispering Oaks based on a friend's recommendation. We were looking for a place off the beaten path, peaceful, good value and comfortable. Whispering Oaks met all those expectations. The owners are super friendly and accommodating. The cabins aren't fancy, but they are VERY clean and comfortable. I loved the sitting area by the lakefront. Easy boat access... More

Whispering Oaks was surprisingly easy to find even though it's located a bit off the beaten path. When we arrived, the owners were very helpful and friendly. Everything seemed so laid back and relaxing, beginning with their accommodating attitude. We were allowed to bring our VERY large dogs with us at a small extra pet fee(they are quite pet friendly).... More
