We thought Whispering Pines would be very nice, however had no idea of the beautiful view and ambiance. We visited this property for three nights in mid July and everything exceeded our expectations. When it is clear, you can see the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff from the deck, the loft, the living room and the Prescott Room. It is located at 6100 feet and has an ever-changing view of the surrounding mountains and landscape based on the time of day and the clouds. It is the best view we have seen other than a view with water. It has a wrap-around deck with several different areas to sit and enjoying sipping a beverage or eating a snack. They have many humming and other birds for your entertainment on the deck and the surrounding property.
Tim and Gayle were a delight to be around, great sense of humor and very genuine. We felt like they were old friends who welcomed us to their home. We enjoyed many conversations about many different interesting topics. They paid close attention to your needs and requests. They fix a wonderful breakfast each morning with a main course, fresh fruit and cereal if you like. They provide you with wonderful home-made chocolates for a snack during your stay.
They have three short trails with great views and trinkets. They also have a Pentaque court which was great fun to play for us as a couple or would be great for several couples or a family. Their property is very close to the Prescott National Forest so there are many other trails to hike. They provided us with great suggestions for dinner and made our reservations. It is only about an 8 to 10 minute ride to downtown.
We stayed in the Prescott Room which is very comfortable, has a great view and its own private entrance. The living room and loft area provide two TV's and several areas to play games, read or just relax. The decorations change with the seasons and create a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
We had a wonderful time and got a break from the hot weather in Phoenix. We only wished we could have stayed longer. We do plan to return and hope it is in the near future. This is definitely one of the best Bed and Breakfast Properties that we have ever stayed in. We also enjoyed playing the golf courses in the area. This makes a great escape from the Phoenix area or a great place to stay to tour Northern Arizona.
