My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Whispering Waters. The property is beautiful: meticulous gardens, rushing river, trickling creeks, and lush forest. There's also a horse and an alpaca on property. We stayed in the main house. Our room was comfortable, very clean, and welcoming. We had a beautiful balcony which overlooked the treetops. The entire place is... More

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We were in the main house, with a king bed, and it was very comfortable. The grounds are gorgeous, and at night the fields light up with fireflies. My husband loves an early morning run and the area was perfect this. Brian, the host, was very accommodating and friendly. Loved the "real" breakfast... More

A magnificent place to relax and truly get away from everything! My husband and I spent four nights in the Spring House Suite, it was wonderful and we feel totally rejuvenated. The Spring House Suite is located in a building next to the main house which contains the sauna and the hot tub is just steps away which we used... More

This B&B is great for people looking for a trip involving several different aspects of a getaway. The house itself is buried in the woods with beautiful grounds with room to explore and hike or sit and fish by the river. However, a short 10 minute drive will take you right into the heart of downtown Traverse City to shop,... More

We stayed in the cabin while at Whispering Waters. If you are looking for privacy, this is the best way to go. The bed is located upstairs in a loft, which is accessible by way of a pretty steep stair ladder. If you have bad knees, or need to get up often in the night, this might not be practical.... More

My 10 year old granddaughter and I stayed one night at this delicious place....what an experience. Being from Southern California, neither of us had ever experienced the colors of fall. We found Whispering Waters when we were looking for a place to stay near the home where we would pick up our new puppy. What a find, it was just... More

We stayed for two nights at Whispering Waters in mid-October, and it was fabulous. Brian greeted us upon our arrival and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The Spring House Suite was so nice, located right along a small creek, with a beautiful view of the woods. There are trails into the woods or along the most-beautiful Boardman River.... More

We recently stayed to celebrate our birthdays. We stayed in the spring house, it was private and relaxing as the brook was right outside our window. The hot tub was just a few steps away too. On the last night, we had a great campfire and kicked back. Very good food every morning too. Thanks for a great stay. I... More

We stayed a night at Whispering Waters and could have stayed a week. Brian, one of the owners made sure that he was going to be there when we arrived. The inn is a 20 minute drive outside Traverse City and we kept saying "you really got to want to be here". When we arrived we could immediately sense the... More

This Secluded / Peaceful/ Beautiful BB is wonderful and perfect to escape and relax. My husband and I spend our anniversary biking from Grand Rapids to Traverse City on a tandem trike, and our host Brian was wonderful, so attentive to our arrival and helping us. Our room was in the main house , very clean and a beautiful bathroom.... More
