“Excellent Condos in the Heart of Pigeon Forge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I recently stayed here the weekend of August 9, 2013. The first thing I always look for in accommodations is cleanliness -- and Whispering Pines certainly did not disappoint in this regard. Even the most picky "clean/neat-freak" (which is a title that likely applies to me) would be hard-pressed to come up with a negative comment regarding the cleanliness of Whispering Pines. After cleanliness, the second most important thing to me is furnishings. Again, Whispering Pines did not disappoint: the furniture was new (and clean), the appliances (eg., refrigerator, washer/dryer combo, stove, dishwasher, coffee pot, iron, etc.) were newer models and in good shape, and the entertainment equipment (eg., flat screen televisions, DVD players, radios, etc.) was new and in good shape. The third most important thing to me is location. Yet again, Whispering Pines did not disappoint. Whispering Pines is located approximately one block off the "main drag" in the heart of Pigeon Forge. As such, it's right in the heart of all of the action; nevertheless, when you return back to your Unit, you felt that you were in a peaceful and quiet location. Whispering Pines somehow manages to be in the middle of all of the action, yet peaceful and quiet at the same time. In my book, this is an excellent combination. My unit had a balcony with a great view of the mountains (which was a nice place to relax, unwind, and enjoy a pre-dinner drink). The staff was pleasant and very helpful. Helpful suggestions for dining and shopping, as well as directions (and discount coupons), were given with a smile. Parking was plentiful. In short, I had an excellent experience at Whispering Pines, and I would strongly recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: I stayed in Unit 613, which was excellent.

We stayed here Aug 5th thru Aug 8th with three adults and a 4 year old. All I can say is clean! We have stayed here for several years, usually twice a year. Never had a problem with any unit, all are clean and furnishings are always nice and good shape. We get the two bedroom which has two baths. Check in is easy, staff always very friendly. I highly recommend Whispering Pines to any family with kids.

Room Tip: Higher floors have best views and noise.

Awesome Review & We appreciate it! We love families and we know that vacation is stressful enough, so we want to help you have as many happy memories as possible! There are tons of things for kids to do at Whispering Pines...Lazy River, Indoor/Outdoor Pool/Arcade.. always something going on.

Also, we have (in our opinion) THE BEST housekeeping department anywhere! Second to none! So, I will make sure they see this review & I know they will appreciate this as well! We hope to see you again, so don't be a stranger!

I am a little late writing this, but better late than never. Stayed in a 2 bdrm # 332 and enjoyed it very much. Everything was nice in the condo and very up-to-date décor. Beds were very comfortable and it was very reasonably priced. The outdoor pool was closed because it was October of last year that we stayed, but the indoor pool was wonderful. Late at night it was hard to find a parking spot, but other than that it was great. The coupons, free movies, etc. were an additional bonus.

What a wonderful condo! We stayed 5 nights and each one was terrific!!! This complex is at the top of a hill right off Parkway in Pigeon Forge. It is exceptionally clean and well run! The condo was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Everything was provided including starters of dish soap, toilet paper, and trash bags (take your on trash bags!). Staff are wonderful and the discount ticket options are great! Wonderful heated pools even if the lazy river is more of a still river. Still much fun. Great value and great stay! Will be back!

Room Tip: Trash bags are very thin. Buildings one and two view the Parkway. Steep hill to walk up if you use...

This is on of best condo's I have stayed at so far. it was very clean and we slept very well. We weren't bothered by our neighbors or the hotel staff. The pool was a little chilly but you got used to it. The only con is the hot tub was dirty.

Thank you for taking the time to review us! We are big on Southern Hospitality and we love making vacation easy on people.

We are lucky to have great owners who keeps their units nicely decorated and up to date. As with everything, first impressions are lasting impressions. I will look into your statement about the hot tub and see what happened with that, that is absolutely not an ordinary situation. But, we truly do appreciate you and hope to see you again! Thank you for visiting the Smokies!

We have stayed at Whispering Pines before and has always been great, not this time. We had two 2 bedroom condos, one was great other filthy carpet and uncomfortable furniture. These can be easily fixed. But the parking was terrible and needs to be addressed. Over the 4th and 5th of July they were very busy with not ample parking. They allowed non patrons to park on grounds making paying guests park in a lot 3-4 tenths of a mile away. Then you had to walk back on a poorly lit and unsecured street. We were not told at time of check in of the possibility of having to park off grounds. We have stayed other times and have always been pleased. Letter wrote to Whispering Pines concerning stay.

First, I would like to offer our apologies about any issue that you had while staying with us.

Second, I appreciate you letting us know about the carpet and it has already been cleaned, With so much traffic on them, they do need extra attention and appreciate when people let us know when something might need special attention.

Concerning the parking, it was very hectic over the 4th, but please know, that we (RPM), did not allow locals to use our parking lot on July 4, we absolutely never allow that. We did find that there were several individual owners that live locally that decided to come here to watch the fireworks. Once we determined what the issue was, we immediately contacted the HOA and corrected the issue. That did not help for that night, but it did fix the problem beginning July 5 and there were no further issues and plenty of parking from that point on.

I have not received a letter from you at this time, but do appreciate the opportunity to discuss things further with you. You can email me at joy@whisperingpinescondos.com or the Front Office Manager, Louann at louann@whisperingpinescondos.com. If I am unavailable, she is usually here.

I want to again to express my apologies and say thank you for your business and I hope we have the opportunity to see you again. We truly do want to make vacations great and provide good memories, but I do know sometimes things happen and we will always do our best to solve any and all issues.
