“Cabins Well Maintained and Comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Whispering Pines Resort has a lot going for it, a long-term owner who takes pride in the property and it shows.
- Very clean property
- Close in to town for supplies
- Cabins are quiet, clean, and well stocked - just bring your personal stuff, food and drinks
- Well maintained property
- Relaxing atmosphere
- Comfortable bedding and furniture (Lazy Boy)
- No bugs or mold
- Area is sprayed for flying insects
- Close to walking trails, lake is a 2 mile R.T. easy level trail
- Reasonably priced
- These cabins are right off the highway
- No A.C.
- Fans are supplied
- We had spotty cell service
- No campfires are permitted on property; no central fire pit for family gatherings
- Indoor hot tub with hours 3 to 8 and will accomodate roughly 6 adults
- Horseshoe Pit
- We recommend this location for a quiet weekend gettaway

Safe Travels!

Room Tip: Research the map on the internet for location of cabins on the property

Loved the resort, stayed for five nights. The lady at the office took me to the cabin and showed me how to work everything - she was very nice and very efficient. The cabin was just big enough for me and my dog....I was in cabin 33, a spa cabin. The cabin was very, very clean. The kitchen had everything you would need. Bed was comfortable and had ample storage space. Bathroom was adequate; had a jetted tub, but I didn't use it, and a separate shower. Wish it had internet availability in the cabins. The only complaint I had was that the refrigerator was only turned to 4 when I arrived, so it was hot and could not hold food. I turned it to 9 (the highest) and it was not cool enough for food until mid-afternoon the next day. It would have been nice if they would have made sure it was cold enough to store perishable food in it at time of arrival.

The cabin was on a city street, but there was not much traffic, so noise was at a minimum. There were walking trails close to take the dog for a walk. There is also a path around a lake which is close by.

There were great restaurants close by - Darbi's Cafe was great, as was Charlie Clark's steakhouse. There was a Safeway just a couple of miles from the resort. The casino is about 5 or 6 minutes away.

Just as a reminder, if you take your dog, please clean up after them. Many places won't take dogs anymore, because people won't clean up after them...we need to keep things clean so that we will have places to travel with our pets.

Room Tip: Make sure you look on their map - you don't want to be the couple of cabins that are next to Dar...

We stayed here 3 nights, for a quick family getaway to get out of the heat in Phoenix. We were concerned that the cabin may be hot, but had fans inside which helped greatly and it was only somewhat hot the first night, the last 2 nights it was cool and rainy so we could leave the windows open. Our cabin was right next to the playground which was perfect for my 9 year old. No maid service and no air condition but it turned out quite nice anyways. There is a safeway a block away so we bought groceries and made our own food some nights. We went to the WME movie theatre in pinetop another night and the kids enjoyed the family aquatic pool in show low only $1.50 fee open from 1-5pm, although its about a 20 min drive from cabin. Red Robin about 5 min away, good pizza. Hon Dah casino about 10 min away. Went fishing one day. Cabins were clean and fully stocked. Would def visit again, although maybe in winter so we could actually use the fireplace!

We really enjoyed our short get-a-way from the desert heat up to these cabins. The cabins were well equipped, very clean and in a quiet and peaceful setting in the woods. But they were also close to restaurant and grocery stores. One of the best features is that from the cabin you can easily walk to a 500 acre city park with lots of beautiful trails and a pretty lake (Woodland Lake Park).

The cabin owner is friendly and accommodating. We would definitely return to these cabins. However don't go here expecting daily maid service - these are housekeeping cabins. Also no phones and internet. This is a place to relax and get away.

My husband, nephew and I stayed in Cabin #10. Kitchen is small but we used it to cook two meals plus invited friends for dinner who stayed in Cabin #16. We really liked that each cabin had enough space between them for privacy and solitude. Great location if you are going to do fishing up at Big Lake or any near Springerville & Greer.

Wife and I stayed in a Master Spa Cabin for the night. The owner (I'm guessing that was him) was exteremely friendly and helpful. He even called movie phone for me to check what time a film was playing at the nearby theatre. Check-in was fast and easy.

The cabin was clean and very comfortable. The hot tub was large enough for 2 adults. Very impressed by the full kitchen; fridge, oven, microwave, plates, dinnerware, glasses, everything you need. Living room was very nice, you have the option of either a cabin with a natural gas or wood burning fireplace. We chose the latter, had a nice stack of firewood waiting for us on the patio. There's a cafe within walking distance, good food, but poor service and long wait in the morning. I would recommend the Denny's down the road instead.

A really nice romantic getway, love the surrounding nature. Would be great for families too. The kids I saw were having a blast. Also helps that Pinetop residents are among the nicest and friendliest people I've met in Arizona!

We stayed at one of the newer cabins, one bedroom with kitchen and whirlpool. It was clean and everything was fairly new. We did not have any issues with the whirlpool. There was a fireplace but we did not use it. The furniture was La-z-boy brand and comfortable. The television was hooked to satellite so we got good reception. We ate in most of the time, which saved us money and got us good food. The rooms were quiet, you could not hear vehicles on the highway. It is not a resort in the traditional sense, there is no spa or restaurant, only a collection of cabins. Still, it met our needs and we would go back.
