The end of a long day on the road with nowhere to stay we were very lucky to find the excellent Whispering Pines Lodge. It was a Sunday night, getting late and most places in Kernville weren't answering their phone. My lady had tried The Kern Lodge as their roadside sign said "Vacancy" and was yelled at by a rude night manager who said " read the sign - we are full"! Anyway, we drove back along the road and found Whispering Pines. Louise, the owner, was just locking up for the night but she was very friendly and insisted we would "...like our room. Everybody like our room.." And indeed, we did. Large room, clean, decor "eclectic" shall we say. Nice big balcony where we sat and watched the stars and listened to the river. In the morning, the breakfast was one of the better ones we had on the road, freshly cooked by Louise, including some excellent quiche. Main building decor definitely folksy! After breakfast we had the pleasure of watching a young deer from our balcony. A beautiful little spot run by a very friendly 78 years young lady. Price was okay for the area - $135 if I recall - and for the quality. Would definitely stay here again if ever in the area.
